Waiting for your Help Folks---Please respond
We are a couple coming to Naples for 4 days.
Can you please suggest me some good budget hotel in the central area which is near to the markets, shopping, night life and very importantly yet safe.
Please suggest folks !!
Thanks very much....
Re: Waiting for your Help Folks---Please respond
All I can suggest is keep your wits about you and your wallet well and truly secured behind a shirt and close to your skin. Be aware of people crowding around you especially in trains and people following you. It's an exciting city, great pizza but full of pickpockets etc.
Travel Tips for Naples
The Neapolitan waterfront was heavily bombarded during the Second World War. Now it's a mish-mash of hectic streets, waterfront warehouses, derelict factories, tatty advertizing, and the assorted medieval remnant. In other words, it is perfectly analagous to the city of Naples itself. And hovering behind it all is the behemoth of Vesuvius.
Pozzuoli - Seafaring Village
Placed in the gulf of Pozzuoli (north of Naples), this village is typical for its alleys that give it the typical configuration of harbour and, above all, for the lights of the lampares (nightly lamps used for capturing tattleres and polyps), set on the boats of the fishermen.
The “village” is a charmant match between the port - where are rided at anchor ferries and hydrofoils which get to the islands of Ischia and Procida - and the refuge, situated near the "dock", where private boats are moored and also where fishermen mend their nets and prepare the necessary ones for the fishing.
The fished is then cleverly cooked by the nearby restaurateurs: a perfect binomial between the fruit of the job and the pleasure of the table. The gulf of Pozzuoli is famous for the preparation of typical dishes of sea: spaghetti with local clams; soup of clams and mussels; fried seaweeds; salads of polyps and so many other, that exhale in the alleys their marvellous perfume of sea; Everything is accompanied with typical local wines like Falanghina and Piedirosso. This last is so called because its color remembers legs of the pigeons: in Neapolitan dialect, it is called "pere’ ‘e palummo" (=legs of pigeon).
To the folklore of the seafaring village is tied up the Feast of the Yard Sea, on August 15th, the same day of Virgin Mary’s feast: this occasion melts sacred rituals, as the procession, with other profane ones, as the conquest of the yard, a sort of greasy pole soaped that sticks out on the sea.
Fishermen involve the tourists to the discovery of the village through nice activities of collective fishing on board of the typical boats (“chianchiole” and “paranze”). In some special occasions (and during the month of May) historical center, turns into a banquet where typical products can be tasted.

top class napolitan seafood cooking
I've been told clinton has been there. But that didnt impress me. What did was the quality of the food served here - absolutely fresh, cooked simply, lighty and yet amazingly complex in flavour and scrumptious! I had several antipasti - "bamboo"clams, pesce crudo (uncooked fish ""cooked"" in lemon juice, herbs and salt) and mozzarella with prosciutto, and a wonderful pasta dish with frutti di mare (all sorts f seafod, plentiful clams, mussels, large pink prawns) in a light tomato sauce. the view offered by our al fresco dining position was just as beautiful the only downside was the bill. this is a medium-pricey restaurant in spite of its cosy, homey look. p.s: im sure i got the name of the restaurant wrong, but it's somewhat similar to what's been typed above, sorry
When you pass along the beautiful Amalfitan coast you pass along many beautiful villages worth stopping: Positano, Ravello, Amalfi,....
Amalfi itself is very typical, if you have the time you can make a boattrip from here along the coastline. This way you get a totally and even more spectacular view of the coastline. The water in the surroundings is cristal blue !!
Amalfi is a health and seaside resort laid out at different levels at the top of a cliff on the Amalfi coast, at the end if the Mulini valley. It was founded by the Romans, was a trading centre in the sixth century, and in 839 AD, became the first Italian maritime republic.
You can visit the Cathedral which was built in the eleventh century, rebuilt in the Arab-Norman style in the twelfth and further altered in the eighteenth.
Positano is a fishing village, port for Capri and health and seaside resort on the Amalfi coast. It has white houses with vaulted roofs and is laid out on terraces amongst gardens, palms and citrus groves on the slopes of Mount Sant’Angelo a Tre Pizzi and Mount Comune. It was founded by the people of Paestum, who lived through the Saracen invasion, and was later a rival of Amalfi. It has a beach with a small sandy area in front of a cliff.
You can visit the Church of Santa Maria Assunta which has a cupola covered with majolica and is divided into three parts internally. The campanile is thirteenth century. Events include the Positano Dancing Competition and a September Music programme.
Inside Chiesa di San Domenico Maggiore
In contrast with its neighbour, Santa Chiara, this church is very richly decorated, yet it does not go into the excesses of baroque, as it also has a neo-Gothic influence. It was built in 1324. A most original church, especially when one needs to walk up from the piazza via stairs before having a glimpse at its magnificence.
