I came into Napoli via train and was immediately turned off by how neglected the city was. However, we visited Chiaia and took a stroll along the water and were pleasantly surprised. This neighborhood is beautiful. Napoli's hidden gem! It's funny that while most people were warning us to avoid Napoli, we realized that we did the most shopping, had... More

Lots of buzz. Lots of superb pizza! All of Naples has style and lots of colourful places. Try also the Via Tribunali if you want to see old Naples from a different angle.

Chiaia is by far the hippest neighborhood in Naples. Beautiful seaside location, chic boutiques, more trees and wider roads than in the rest of the city, a totally different atmosphere than the historic center and other areas.

The road is essentially a walking street crammed with specialty shops, restaurants and clothing stores. And don't forget to investigate the small cross streets as that is where some of the real...

After seeing the old city of Naples all ruined and filthy, you wouldn't believe that you are in the same city when you start walking up this street. Enjoy

Via Chiaia is a pedestrianised road with loads of pretentious shops with items worth hundreds of pounds and further with lots of designer shops. I preferred to simpliciy of via Toledo with it's real feel despite having lots of Neapolitans behaving in a way that would raise eyebrows in London

A more upmarket and calm vibe to the area, with expensive boutique shops and stylish bars. A nice place for window shopping, people watching and cocktails in the Piazza.
