Stayed at the hotel Majestic in this area, and loved being able to step,out into this lovely area. Full of great independent retailers. My husband bought shirts at a small specialist store and they are wonderfully well made and lasting well. This is a great up market bazaar style area, and the shopping is great. The area is teeming with... More

Very nice neighborhood, close to the beach, nice buildings and sights. Cleaner, wider streets, and less traffic in comparison to the city center. Good neighborhood for walking and shopping. It's about 35-40 minutes walk from city center, but worth the visit. Lots of seafood restaurants and pizzeria to choose from.

Originally booked this as a last minute trip but changed from a cheaper area of town "due to being a single traveller" and wasnt disappointed. Muxh cleaner and spacious part of town walking around near midnight I felt very safe to walk around and not be bothered. A decision well made.

Don't take my title of the review as the geographic location. It's just an ironic class reference. If you are feeling uneasy about coming to Naples from all the stories you've heard, just come to Chiaia and stay in this area. You have everything you need here - high end designers, wine bars, lovely historic trattoria, wide streets with some... More

This area was a hidden gem and a tourist's oasis in a city which clearly suffers from quite a bit of neglect and where you're unlikely to see many English-speaking travellers. We actually spent most of our holiday more stressed than we would have been if we had just stayed at home but Via Chiaia was the best shopping/restaurant/cafe street... More

We visited both sides of the island, and found that the west coast (Forio) has much cleaner, clearer water, fine sand (no pebbles or rocks), and fantastic views of Mt. Epomeo and the city of Forio (dominated by a "castle" turret and church cupola). Beaches on the other side are far less charming!

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

One of the most beautiful places in Naples, accessible without too much effort cost , from here you can enjoy another kind of Naples, near Piazza del Plebiscito a few hundred meters from the promenade, this small neighborhood is absolutely the place where Naples excel for its beauty and for its refined shops, fine tailoring , bars and restaurants, in...

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.
