Naples is one of the most beautiful city in Italy. The food is incredible, the people are warm and fun. The city has an overall sense of party town all year round. For some reason the city has a bad reputation of being dirty and dangerous. None of that is true. The city is not more dangerous than any other big city in Europe, just use some common sense and you’ll be fine.
- Piazza Plebiscito e Palazzo Reale: this is the core of the city. Next to the piazza there is the famous Caffè Gambrinus that is worth a visit for the espresso and the amazing babas (Rum soaked pastries)
- Via Toldedo: it is one of the main shopping street in Napoli.
- Via Domenico Capitelli (Spaccanapoli) this is the old roman road, very narrow but very alive and fun to walk
- Monastero Santa Chiara: this is an amazing 13th century monastery worth a visit
- San Gregorio Armeno: this narrow street is famous for the stores that sells hand made religious figurines
- Via Tribunali: famous for the best (and busiest) pizza restaurant in Napoli. Here it is possible to take a tour of the underground city
- Cappella di San Severo: famous for the marble statue of dead Christ,.
- Via Chiaia to Piazza Martiri: this is probably the best little street for a walk with the locals.
- Pizzeria Brandi where they claimed to have invented the Pizza Margherita.
- Via Partenope to Castel dell’Ovo: great views of the bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius great place to eat on a patio.
- Borgo Marinaro e Castel dell’Ovo ancient fortress built on a little island, defiantly worth a visit. The restaurants in this area can be a bit of a tourist trap.
