Naples - How bad is it?

Crime ridden and dirty? Contemplating a hotel on the port of Baia. Is this area o.k./safe?

Thank you.

The place to stay in Naples is via Partenope. There are a number of very nice hotels across from the harbor. Here is a link to a google map of the section of Naples I am talking about: http://tinyurl.com/29q9k6

Hi, oxburger! When I visited Naples some years ago, it was on my THIRD trip to Italy. I also stayed at a hotel on the Via Partenope.

The only good part of my stay was the fact that I could easily visit Pompeii from Naples. Other than that, I would not have gone there, nor would I ever return.

I found the city dirty and run-down looking, with many petty thieves and dishonest merchants and waiters galore. Most restaurants that I went to were simply clip-joints.

There are so many other cities in Italy that are actually nice to visit. Why not consider one of them instead?

We found it intense in a not-good way. I have a friend who relishes the intensity.

I would not go back voluntarily.

Hi Ox,

What's the hotel's address.

What's your budget.

Naples is somewhat grimy. Very chaotic and wonderfully Italian.

Go see "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow".
