    I booked with Casa del Monacone through Monasterystays.com. Rooms were clean and extremely quiet. Each room has its own, modern, clean bathroom. The rooms had a wardrobe, refrigerator, tv, and a/c. Room also had Wiifi. Common room had a kitchen, tv, and small library. Every morning, I would be served coffee and a breakfast pastry to get my day started. Considering all I wanted was a quiet, safe, clean place to stay with wifi, the Casa del Monacone more than delivered. My only difficulty was finding the basilica again my second night there. It turns out there is an elevator across the street that takes you up to the main street level. The map I purchased prior to my trip did not make that very clear. It was a tour guide at the basilica that showed me.

Car parking problems

by potokmo

Hello,
We will be traveling to Naples in September using a rented car. Since we know that there are many problems using the car inside Naples (parking, thieves, etc.) we would like to find a town near Naples we will be able to park the car and than go to Naples by public transportation.
Anyone has done it before? Can someone advise us where to do it?
Thank you all.

I don't have any specific advice but I'm sure that any village "out of town" would do.

Why not have a look at a map of the city with public transportation lines marked out. Then find the direction of the least traffic (furthest from the Autostrada), least tourist-interesting village - and use it. Better still (if you're really worried), chat up one of the locals (in that village)and see if he'll let you leave your car on his property for a small fee.

I thought the same, but I wanted to get some ideas.

Re: Car parking problems

Hi, I'm an Italian and I've been many times in Naples. You're right about the problems using cars in Naples, but I suggest you to leave your car in a parking lot IN the city (there are plenty of underground parkings). Little towns near Naples are pretty dangerous for tourists; moreover, malicious people immediately notice if a car is rented, so even parking your car far away from the city you could get some nasty surprise...

Good luck and have fun in Italy!

Travel Tips for Naples

You should pay more attention...

by Bauen

You should pay more attention to your pocket, not only to the pocket picker, but also to the taxi driver. The taxi there is cheap, start for 5000Lila. So the best way is to let the driver open the milemeter and you have the city map in hand. Or if you want to handel with him, you should cut off at least 50% of what he asked. The beach near Villa Comunale is so beautiful, that you shouldn't missed.

Procida

by AndreSTGT

Even though Procida is the one of the three Gulf islands which is closest to Napoli and the mainland, it's at the same time the least known and least touristy, which is something i really don't understand. The island is admittedly very small, densely populated and doesn't offer spectacular scenery; but such an authentic, placid and beautiful piece of Southern Italy can't possibly be spared from mass tourism. The entire island is a piece of art, many roads are cobblestone, hardly ever wide enough for two vehicles, the small towns are not gaudy and exude an atmosphere of long ago. Fishermen sit on the quay, mending their nets or repairing their boats. Procida's ultimate gem is the unbelievably scenic and magnificent port of Corriccella which unites all these attributes in a fascinating way. Its harbor promenade is only accessible over stairways or by boat : picture-perfect 50s flair. It's hard to believe that such a place still exists in Europe nowadays and it's just as amazing that it's devoid of tourist groups, an oasis of peace, maybe the off-the-beaten track highlight in Europe. For film buffs : parts of the remake of 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' were filmed there.
Procida can be reached by ferry from Naples (40min), Pozzuoli and Ischia (15min).

Family Style Dining for ONE PRICE

by robheather13 about '40 Mil' is what the locals call it

Food is brought to your table and passed around family style. There are over 20 things to try and you will leave feeling full and satisfied. I like the beginning courses of eggplant, cheeses, etc... For desert you get a chocolate cone to pour your grappa in.

Archeology

by Igraine

The National Archelogical Museum. Havent been there myself due to my kind of trip (there wasnt any time to go) but when i come back its on the top of my things to do list.

It houses the second largest archelogical collection of Italy (first one is the Vatican museum) so you can understand that alot of very well known pieces are in this museum e.g the Farnese collection.

There is always something...

by pjallittle


There is always something very special about a ship coming into port. You've usually seen some pictures of the shoreline, maybe in a travelogue, on television or in the movies. Perhaps slides or films that someone has displayed.

You just can't duplicate reality, virtual is close, but the real thing wins out every time.
