Safe place to stay in Naples

Jump to last reply

We are going to Naples in May and you all have been a tremendous help with the planning. We have booked a Villa in Praiano and are going to see the Amalfi coast with that as our base.

My question pertains to our first day and last two. Our villa is booked from Saturday to Saturday. We arrive at 2:00 pm on Friday and thought maybe we'd just stay in the Naples area that night and then pick up our car Saturday morning (we've heard all the warning about the car but we're going to brave it - and get a nice small car!). We also need a place to stay the following Saturday and Sunday nights. We thought we'd dump the car when we got back to Naples. We have a very early flight Monday morning so Sunday night probably need something really close to the airport.

I heard a number of Fodorites say that there is plenty to see in Naples and that despite all the warnings not to miss it. I have spent a lot of time looking for hotels and have a hard time finding one not laced with warnings. We generally try to stay in the $125-150 usd range but if that is unrealistic to find decent and safe, please tell me.

Thanks
Merri
