I suppose if you read about the reports, the robberies did happen, but I thought the Santa Lucia/Chiara neighborhoods were the nicest part of Naples. We just got back from our stay at Hotel Excelsior and had no problems whatsoever, and we typically returned from dinner around 11pm. I can't speak for what happens in the later hours, but it seemed like a very tame neighborhood. There were lots of kids sitting on the rocks by the water drinking and hanging out, but like I said, we had no problems.

If you do stay at the hotel, I recommend getting a room that faces the water. The view is fantastic!

Hi everybody,

the whole area sorrounding the Excelsior is one of the most beautiful of naples, and it includes other five stars hotels all located one beside the other (Vesuvio, Santa Lucia, Royal): yust along the promenade, seightseeing to Vesuvus and Posillipo, in front of the Castel dell'Ovo (one of the most visited places of Napoli) and the area where first inhabitants founded the city- so called Partenope- and then moved to the hill in front of, from where was born the "new town" - Neapolis, etc....

I mean in that area during 365 days for year there is at least one Police mobile station, it's the visit card of the city for all meetings, banquettings, congresses, and other official events (economic, financial, politic) and I think there will be at least twenty cameras recording images of that area.........

It seems to me very stupid try to rob someone there, but ........... depends on how much stupid are the robbed!!

Just returned. Stayed at the Royal next door and had absolutely NO problems...Never felt threatened or afraid at all. Use common sense.
