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 the best pizza and enjoyed the best view of Vesuvius, Capri etc from napoli harbor. Don't let people deter you.

I visited Napoli in May 2012 for 11 nights,I chose to stay in the Chiaia district,just outside of the Centro Storico.I felt as a single traveller this area would suit my needs,safe,very local with excellent restaurants,transport links and lovely walk to the centre along the waterfront,I stayed in the small and very Neapolitan Casa Mira Napoli,this proved to be an excellent choice for me,I found the owner Gina and her family and staff very friendly and helpfull,and I was given plenty of local knowledge and information on restaurants and attractions in the surrounding area.I enjoyed a lovely breakfast each morning with fresh pastries,ham,cheese and lovely local tomatoes and fresh bread,which I ate on my lovely terrace each morning.I would not hesitate to stay at the Casa Mira b+b if I am lucky enough to visit Napoli in the future,Patricia Pierce

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 nice smaller character filled streets, minimal scooter/Vespa action. All streets around Chiaia are perfectly safe, not just the main drag, in fact, the main street of Chiaia is the least attractive part of it. I'm not sure how anyone who has traveled widely could possibly see any street in this area as looking deprived. In fact, if you only stay on the main street, you'll miss the beautiful Antica Latteria trattoria and an awesome wine bar called Cap'Alice. It is the well to do location of the Neapolitans. Naples though is not necessary 'Italian', it is proudly Neapolitan and if you want to experience the vibrant, scruffy, friendly but slightly edgy side of this, you go to Centro Storico. If you prefer going where all English speaking tourists go, or feel you can't look past the graffiti of the Centro Storico, Chiaia is for you but you will miss about 98% the historic churches and museums, which are in Centro Storico. Personally, I liked both sides of Naples.

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 bargains are to be found.

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 to Cimarosa for Castel Sant Elmo (great views). On foot Chiaia has loads of shops, bars and restaurants in a maze of little and a promenade along the sea front. Even late at night it always felt utterly safe. We were so glad we chose to stay there and experience Naples than the Sorrento option.

my big tip about napoli is get out of the old town that is all that seems to be on the tourist maps they give out. many people told me how dirty and dangerous napoli was, but once I found my way around I'll forever tell those people they don't know what they're talking about. go to castel d'ovo and the chiaia district, then take the funicular up to the vomero district.

So Chiaia is the "posher" neighbourhood of Naples located just behind the Piazza del Plebiscito and closest to the sea. It is clearly well maintained and rather expensive as it doesn't feel like you are in Naples. It is not chaotic or noisy.

Great for a little stroll with plenty of places to shop and eat, but in all honesty I prefered the hustle and bustle of the city centre...the true Napoli.

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.

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.

We stayed in this district at the Palazzo Alabardieri. This area is very close to the sea-10 minute walk and the Toledo area -10 minutes. The area is where the upmarket shops of Naples are but only minutes away from the lower end of the market (Toledo and piazza del plebiscito) and plenty of reasonable priced bars and restaurants. When we stayed we never felt anything but safe in this area - what a great place to visit and stay.
