yeah or nay on Naples

My wife and I are taking my in-laws will be staying in Sorrento for three nights and a full day. My wife has been reading alot about Naples and is now concerned with safety. Is there much to experience in Naples or should we just by-pass it?

all information is appreciated.

I spent four weeks in Italy and Naples was my absolute favorite locale. It was everything i expected Italy to be - vibrant, chaotic, warm, friendly people, passionate couples.
the food was the best i had in italy, especially the pizza slices on every corner, each better than the last.
The architecture and city layout is dazzling - decaying palazzos, the Castel Nuovo, and all the alleyways of Spaccanapoli.

I agree! We were also warned and scared to death about Naples . . . we decided to go anyway (we're that kinda girls), we only had one day and were sick that we hadn't allotted several.

The museum is great . . . a lot of the treasures and really nice murals, mosaics, statues from Pompeii are there . . . the food is the best, we did find that crossing the streets was a challenge but we LOVED Naples . . . it's really so what you think you'll find when you go to Italy.

When we return to Italy, Naples will definately be on the schedule!

Go and enjoy!

The topic of Naples usually creates a great deal of debate on this board.
We enjoyed our visit there. The area along the waterfront is very lovely and I would recommend staying there. We stayed at the Hotel Miramare and found it to be very charming. There are quite a few nice hotels in the area.

WOW! Its so refreshing to read about people who've give Naples an objective chance and have loved it.

Ditto for my wife and I.
