Naples is a very chaotic city, typical of southern Italy. However, if you want peace of mind, staying in Chiaia will be your favorite option.
This ancient village, dating from the XNUMXth century, grew out of the city walls. However, today it has become a totally different thing.

Chiaia is one of the best areas to stay in Naples if you are looking for tranquility during your stay. However, it is important to take into account that transporting yourself to other places is not so simple and that hotels tend to be more expensive than in the other districts.
Tip: do not stay next to the Central Station
It would be the best way to start the stay with a negative impression. It is in the Piazza Garibaldi, a huge gray space, directly ugly, dirty and populated by a suspicious and patibular looking fauna. At night its surroundings acquire a somewhat sinister air, and the area does not invite to return late to the hotel or go out to dinner. Staying there is convenient to access the trains that lead to Pompeii, Herculaneum and other wonders, but it is worth looking for another place.
How to get to the city of Naples by plane
El airport from Naples performs international flights with more than 30 airlines. Only 7 km from the city is the best option to get to southern Italy. Flights from Spain arrive from Spain Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Seville, etc. Therefore, it is necessary to know which are the most economic, fast and comfortable to go from the airport to the center.

How to get from the Naples airport
To go from the airport to the city or vice versa you have several options, the most common among tourists is to use the bus. You can take the Alibus in the airport bus station that makes three stops, one in the central Station and the other two in the port.
Every day of the week leaves approximately each 15 to 20 minutes the Alibus with direction towards the city and Naples Airport. The journey time is from 15 to 20 minutes to the central station and from 30 to 35 minutes to the port. Tickets for the bus can be purchased in advance at the 'Sun Store Tabacchi' store located at the airport or simply with the bus driver. For more information visit the website and timetable guide Alibus.
Another option cheaper is using the 182 bus line, the stop is located in "Viale Umberto Maddalena", a street that is about 10 minutes walk from the airport. As for the stop, there are two, one that goes in the direction of various neighborhoods of Naples and the other, which is a little further on, which goes to Piazza Dante and to the Museum (downtown of Naples).
If you are tired of the trip and prefer to be left at the door you can take a taxi, as in almost all airports.
How can you move around the city of Naples
The one who warns is not a traitor, Don't you think of getting in the center of the city of Naples by car unless it is totally necessary, the circulation through the city center is a real madness. If you still need it, Naples has a ring road, the "Tangenziale di Nápoles" that surrounds the city and allows access from several entrances.
Move us by bus
The buses in Naples They are a means of transport more or less cheap. However, in the peak hours from Monday to Friday It is difficult to travel by this means. The best time to use the service is during the night and on weekends. Before getting on a bus, make sure you get your ticket, as they are not sold inside the vehicle.
The nerve center of the bus in Naples is the Garibaldi Square, because virtually all lines stop there, or at least all the lines that tourists usually frequent, such as the bus that comes and goes from the airport.
Move in metro
The main lines of the Naples Metro are lines 1, 2 and 6. It is a safe and secure means of transport by cameras and security agents.
- 1 Line: connect the city center to the mountain rooms, like Vomero and the hospital area.
- 2 Line: connects the three main train stations of Pozzuoli. The tracks are shared with the ordinary railroad.
- 6 Line: connect with Fuorigrotta a Mergellina.
The only but that must be put to the Naples metro is that it does not have a frequency as big as other European cities, hence it may take a little longer. You can seen here the plane of the metro with all its stations.
Move us by tram
The trams of Naples they connect the center of the city with some points of the periphery and other neighborhoods. It is not a transport system that is used too much, although it may come to us better than the bus, especially if we want to avoid heavy traffic. Be careful with pickpockets, who always take advantage of the carelessness of tourists.
Move in funicular
Naples is a city that stretches towards the interior hills, so to visit some of the neighborhoods of the hills, such as the residential and bourgeois area of Vomero, the most normal is to use the funicular. It is cheap, it is typical and it is also an experience, as it is not usually a very common means of transport.
Move us by taxi
The vehicles of taxi in Naples They are characterized by being white and carrying a city shield on the front door. Before taking this service you have to look at the list of agreed rates They carry the vehicles in several languages (Italian, English, French, German and Spanish) and thus avoid “confusion”.
The best what you can see and do during your stay in Naples
The best beaches in Naples
And already put, you need to see the beach of Naples. Which is the best beach? Hard choise. The Naples beaches are black sand. I tell you that the most are private, so you have to pay a ticket, but you will enjoy them.
Anyway, if you are interested, the best beaches in Naples to which we advise you to go are to the Gaiola beach and the beach of Cabo Miseno.
But if you do not want to pay, do not worry, You can go to the Campano archipelago, in the Gulf of Naples. There you will find beautiful islands with cliffs with crystal clear waters where you can relax in addition to visiting beautiful historic villages.
In the Campano archipelago, also known as Neapolitan archipelago, you'll find five islands washed by the Tyrrhenian sea: Iscia, Capri, Procida, Vivara (belonging to the municipality of Procida) and Nisida.
You can also go to the Amalfi coast near Naples with beautiful cliffs and crystalline waters.
Where to eat the best pizzas in Naples
This is how not the star of Neapolitan gastronomy: Pizza. Naples is the cradle of this exquisite delicacy. Nowhere will you find pizzas better than these.
La Port'Alba pizzeria It is the oldest, and it is for a simple reason: the pizzas they make are spectacular. The oven with which they prepare them is special, the materials of which it is made are secret. It is said that only 2 people worldwide know how to do it.
All the pizzas that can serve you will be delicious. If you don't know what to choose, I recommend the marinara pizza. Not because I have seafood, it's called that because it was what the sailors ate.
It is the most simple, the most economical, and for many the tastiest. Pizza is part of Neapolitan culture. As in Spain we go for tapas, in Naples they go 'pizzeo', to put it in some way.
