Safe Location?

by Supercattonk

Hi all, we have booked an apartment for one week (Oct) in the Centro Storico area near the Piazza Cavour Metro. We had picked this area as it suits our need to use the Metro system plus it appears to be within close walking distance to a number of interesting "tourist" sites/museums etc.
The question is, is this area reasonable safe area?

Cheers

Re: Safe Location?

I don't know quite how to answer you, especially as I don't know the extent of your travelling and experiences of foreign lands! I love Naples and find it interesting, exciting, and vibrant, with life being lived on the street. The Centro Storico is absolutely fascinating, with narrow streets and so on. However, a lot of people hate Naples and find it dirty and unsafe. From my own experiences, it is like any other big city and you take the same precautions and be aware. I have never had a bad or unpleasant experience in Naples and found the Neopolitans to be extroverted, funny, honest, helpful and very real. There is some absolutely stunning art in Naples and I'm delighted that someone is prepared to make an effort to see it. Make sure you have a very good map and be prepared to walk and hunt out the art. Naples is very much a city that has this wonderful art but it doesn't cater much to tourists - it's all there if you are prepared to make the effort. I don't think the area is unsafe nor is it safe - really like any big city. It's a city that reminds me very much of Lima, Peru, if you have been there! Hope this helps a bit.

Agree.

You need to take the usual common-sense precautions you would take in any big city..leave valuables in the aprtment, distribute cash/cards about your person, keep your eyes open especially in crowds, avoid badly-lit and deserted areas after dark etc etc.

Pickpocketing and petty theft are the most common problems.......just don't provide the opportunity for either.

And watch out for the traffic! :-)

Thank you Hawkhead & Leics, we will stay with our arrangements. We done some extensive travel to Europe last year & loved it so much that we are tackling Paris,Florence,Rome, Naples & Sicily in more detail for 2009. Unfortunately Naples seems to come in for a lot of criticism as a destination point to stay any longer than one day & I have probably read one too many.
We are always conscious of our surroundings and take the usual precautions. Have done a reasonable amount of research on Naples and really looking forward to our visit there.

Cheers

Travel Tips for Naples

Visit Pompeii and walk through...

by TerryP

Visit Pompeii and walk through the ruins. You might be suprised that Pompeii is not placed right at the bottom of Mount Vesuvius but rather a few miles away. The citizens were actually covered by ash not lava.

A Volcano in the middle of Naples

by JohnnySpangles

The Solfatara is a volcano crater in the south west corner of Naples. Entry costs 6 euros and for this you get to wander around the crater. As you walk around the guide path you might be wondering what you've paid for. However stop as you come out of the trees and go closer to all the yellow marks on the white rocks. Look closer and you'll smell sulpher and see the steam venting. In the centre are boiling mud pools and further round are bigger vents. The amount of activity you see will depend on how much is happening underground. Bear in mind you are standing on the crust that is on top of a lava field...makes you feel a bit wobbly if you're a tad overweight. Fretteth not though, the last time it erupted was 800 years ago. A very quirky place to visit if you've never seen anything like this before. Nice bar too for a shady drink after the heat of the crater.

Don't know how you get there by public transport but ample car parking and hardly anybody there when we went in August. Not far from the Aganano horse racing...do the late afternoon at Solfatara then go horse racing.

Great pizza in naples

by Lcannar about Antica Trattoria da Carmine

This is a place where families meet and eat. busy, bright, tables pushed together, children in soccer uniforms. Wait staff friendly, suprised to have tourists. We were directed here by people in the neighborhood after having wandered around looking for somewhere to eat. Pizza and a bottle of wine for 2 was $17.00. We ordered pizza. They had a great looking menu, but we were just planning a light snack to tide us over until dinner. Crust was light and crisp, sau

Ravin' Ruins (pompei/herculaneum)

by naplesnate

Both cities were destroyed by the Vesuvius eroption in AD 79, pompei largely affected by the ash fall from the eruption and herculaneum by the mud slides that followed the quake.
Both of these sites offer very compelling glimpses of what a thriving roman city would have looked like in its glory days.
Pompei is the larger of the two and tends to be the preferred one due to its size and added sites such as its impressive amphitheater.
Pompei is much more accessible to tourists too, the whole town revolves around the ruins and can offer more tourist guidebooks, tourist menus and tourist parking than you could imagine.
The circumvesuviana (main station is Piazza Garibaldi) also has stops by both sites.

Pompeii

by anne_h

Living in Rome, I've seen my fair share of ruins, so I was tempted to give Pompeii a pass. But luckily I didn't. If you get tired of looking at frescoes and mosaics, you can always sit in one of the gardens and soak up the sun, listen to the birds sing, and smell the flowers. It's surprisingly peaceful, given that it's not that far from Naples, about 40 minutes on the Circumvesuviana train. I recommend getting an audio guide (or if you're in a group, hiring one of the guides hanging around the entrance) so you know what you're looking at. Highlights: the House of the Faun, the House of the Vetti (though this was closed for restoration when I was there), House of the Tragic Poet, and the Villa Misteri.
