Naples Pocket Guide

Images Of Naples

Naples is like an amalgamation of various Italian cities - it has the attitude of Milan, the sights of Rome, the passion of Venice and the culinary delights of Florence. It is noisy and slightly intimidating, but it is equally intriguing and extremely engaging. Plus it boasts one of the most spectacular settings in Italy, overlooking the Bay of Naples. Many who stop here only do so for a number of hours before going further south to Capri or Sorrento, as Naples is the gateway to both destinations. But if you are travelling to Naples, spend a day or two here before shooting off. You won't regret it.

    Make Napoli a Stop While You're In Italia

    Prior to going to Napoli everyone told me that I was crazy for going because it was dangerous. People told me to keep my belongings close to me at all times etc. etc. I personally felt safe in Napoli and used my regular precautions while traveling. I loved that the city was what some people would call chaotic. It was loud and lively. The food is great! There's so much to see and you can easily take public transpor to places like Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. You can also go to islands from there

    Insider Tip:Transportation is cheap, but look into getting weekly passes or day passes.

    Loved this city! It was not what I expected. I had just spent time in Vienna, Prague, Paris and Budapest so the dirtiness of Naples was a shock but this atmosphere gives it it's own culture and makes the place feel alive and not just like a tourist destination. Travelled to Herculaneum and Pompeii as well as climbing Vesuvius - all of which are easy to get to from Naples. The food was so cheap and I didn't get hit by a scooter so I think I did well.

    Insider Tip:See some live music in the evening because it's amazing!

    Naples - an unpolished diamond

    I really enjoyed my time in Naples, I thought booking 4 nights there would be too much, but it's easily spent. Pompeii (wear comfortable shoes), boat trip to Capri, (slightly overpriced, shop around), free walking tour which I highly reccomend as it gave us a really different view of Naples and the underground tunnells, all really interesting. Naples comes with a bit of a bad name, but have your wits about you and you'll be just fine.

    Insider Tip:The churches may not look like much from the outside, but are stunning inside.

    Naples!!! crazy city!!

    naples has awesome pizza. its dirty but its fun. lots of characters and the youth take over the streets at night. its super compared to other Italian cities yet still as fun. everyone is super helpful and nonthreatening.

    Insider Tip:Find fried pizza. Eat Di Mateo's fried vegetables. Go to catacombs san d'ella and Fontanelle cemetery. Go on day trips (pompeii, amalfi coast, capri, sorrento, ischaria island..etc.)

    Where to feel really welcome in Italy

    Awesome and at the same time messy city. But absolutely worth to visit! I was impressed by the little narrow streets, old Vespas and the caotic traffic. It is very different from most os Italian cities, but for sure more welcoming than any other place I've been on the country (especially northern cities). And all this without mentioning the superb and renowned pizza and pastry! It is a relatively inexpensive city.
