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

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.

If you want Italian fashion, go to Chiaia, particularly along Via Chiaia, which begins at the foot of Via Toledo one block from the end at Piazza Plebiscito. 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...
