Why

As you can see Naples is a very beautiful city. Its very chaotic once you’re on land, but that adds to its beauty and mystery. You will hear stories about being ripped off in Naples and it may happen as there are touts trying to sell you stuff on the streets, just resist the temptation to buy anything electronic.

Where To Stay

When I first visited, I did so by cruise ship, so I did not stay at a local place. On my second visit by train, I stayed at an Ibis near the train station which is on the other side of the city than the port. There are plenty of choices in differing price range and styles to choose from.
