I am an American woman who will be traveling alone in Naples and Procida and I'm starting to get pretty scared from all the warnings folks are giving me. I believe the better prepared I am the safer I will be. Let me give you some details. Then any advice you have, especially on bus/train connections, is greatly appreciated.
I arrive on Easter Sunday. I'll take ANM bus 3S to Piazza Municipio. My hotel is 2 blocks up from there. I'll stay there one night, then take Ciremar ferry to Procida, where I'll stay for the rest of my vacation. The Procida hotel is a 20 minute walk from the Marina, which will be quite unpleasant if local men harras me.
I have bus and train routes written out, according to info from my new guide book. Tuesday, take the ferry from Procida to Pazzouli. Take Metropolitana train to Circumvesuviana train. I plan to make this route 2 or 3 days in a row until I see Herculeneum, Pompeii, and Vesuvius. The day after, I'll take a walking tour of historic Naples.
Don't get me wrong. I expect to be charmed by Naples and Procida. Just getting really nervous about being alone. Even my guidebook tells me to say Che Schifo! (How disgusting!) if someone grabs my butt.
The bus schedules I've found on line so far are in Italian, which I understand only a little of.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
