Naples should get more credit than it is given as a destination city. It is a major port hub for ships that traverse all over the Mediterrean and the world, it has got many interesting stories from the times of the Bourbon kings to the massive destructions seen during WWII AND it is a wonderful jump off point to see Capri, the Amalfi Coast and of course Pompeii! Don't even think of leaving Napoli without at least getting a slice, no an entire pizza pie.

The grundge of New York subways, high unemployment, low wages, the street garbage of Delhi minus the wandering water buffalo--Naples has it all. People are generally unhelpful (non-Italian speakers get "the look", as in "moron"), so getting around is a bit of a challenge. I confess, I didn't see most neighborhoods, so I'm sure my experiences leave out the places where people may actually buy and wear Versace, versus carrying very bad imitations on the metro while juggling a few babies over a stroller. Get thee to Sorrento (preferably on the CurreriViaggi shuttle, and not the well-used, famous-for-its-pickpockets Circumvesuviana train).

Naples is definitely my favorite city with its lively and mystic character. The city overflows with culture, italian cousin and small alleys :-) Go here if you want to visit the real authentic Italy. It's rough, dirty, noisy yet absolutely beautiful.

Naples is a wild ride. The food is notoriously amazing, but so is the crime. It's beautiful but untamed, a really unique place among Italian cities. Great art and architecture go hand in hand with crazy traffic and amazing pizza.

The place you love to hate. This is probably the most intense city in Italy, for better or worse. It's definitely worth to explore it for a few days and experience all its perks and contradictions as well as some of the best food and sights the country has to offer.

Naples is a place I'll always love but will never want to live in. It's simply too crazy, dirty, dark and mysterious for me; but that is also why I love it (minus the part about being dirty). Sure there are trash problems and crossing the street defies logic, but it's also home to some of the most interesting people and delicious foods. One needs no introduction to Pizza Neapolitana, though visitors might still be surprised at how dang cheap it is. For 1,50 euros, you're able to score an entire pizza pie, folded for on-the-street consumption.
It's a delicious place.
Then there's the beautiful waterfront, Chiaia and Vomero; refined areas where the income is noticeably higher. They offer a different atmosphere for those looking for a break from the narrow streets of Centro.
Finally, Naples is the perfect meeting point for trips to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Capri and Ischia are just boat rides away.

Naples is an incredibly complex city with an often devastating past. Before visiting, I absolutely recommend you read as much about the city as you can--about its culture, it's history--because if you go as I did, unfortunately uninformed, you will find yourself completely at a loss for words at the foot of the crumbling, poverty-stricken landscape. Personally, I fell in love with this city long before I ever visited it for its music. Naples has an incredible folk music tradition--some of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard can be traced back to this city (listen to Roberto Murolo to hear what I'm talking about). Through these beautiful songs, I constructed my own idea of what this city would be, and this is always dangerous. However, I met some unforgettable people in this city, and for that, I will always remember it with fondness. Now that I have done some reading on Naples, I really want to visit it again, better informed.

One of my favorite cities in the world. It reminds me of my home town Philly a lot. Naples is also a perfect base to go see Vesuvius, Pompeii, Capri and the Amalfi Coast among other places. Of course the food is sensational and the pizza is the best in the world. There is also plenty to see in do in Naples itself. I got a little bit lucky in befriending a local and she took us out to a few places most tourists don't see.
