Not the real naples with its gritty, down to earthness. Not loud at all. It would be a shame if all naples was like this...just like so many other world cities. Nice though for an hour or two of unreality.

Chiaia is a more upmarket part of Naples. We very much enjoyed strolling around Chiaia's multitude of shops, restaurants and gelato shops. It was calmed than Via Toledo and nice to stroll around after dinner.

The District of Chiaia is one of my favorite part of this incredible city and it is walking distance to the historical centre of Naples, which is an UNESCO world heritage site. Chiaia is great for shopping and food, in via dei Mille, you will find all the designer shops.

We stayed in this area and loved it. The area closer to the historical center of Naples was just a bit too crazy for us but this was perfect. This neighborhood was cleaner and more quiet than most we saw with lots of shopping and restaurants yet still close enough to be able to see all the sights in Naples.... More

Taking a visit to Chiaia is a refreshing step into an area that seems out of place in the norm for Naples - it's clean and the buildings are refreshing. Walking the cobblestone streets brings you by green spaces, shops, stores, boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants galore. It's just pleasant and feels great to be there. ...

We stayed in an apartment 200m SW of Amadeo metro. Easy to get from/to the airport (EUR23 fixed fare by taxi). Only 3 stops from the Amadeo metro to Garribaldi, from where we got very cheap tickets on the Circumvesuviano train to Herculaneum and Pompeii. Only 2 stops to Cavour, for the Centro Storico and archaelogical museum. Up the funicular... More

Our experience of Chiaia was limited to mainly an hour or so of entertaining shopping along the Via Chiaia and a stroll along several of the laneways which run off that street. We visited on a Saturday morning and consequently there were crowds of people happily shopping along the Via Chiaia. It is a narrow, traffic free street which makes... More

Nice part of Naples. Clean and within walking distance of piazza municip ion. Quiet residential area. Safe to explore. There are plenty of tavernas, pizzeria, and good restaurants nearby within walking distance. Easy to get to our hotel from central station via Line 2. Would recommend this area to visitors of Naples.

Arriving into Naples to Holiday Inn central station wasn't ideal in a city that looks out of Italy and the whole of Europe. Although the people are amazing but not a place to waste a vacation day until we got to Chiaia. A lovely, lively and clean street that is perfect for an afternoon walk. The shops are plenty and...
