In Italy we use Euro.
If you arrive from a European Union country, obviously you will not need to change money, but if you arrive from a Extra country - EU it is necessary to change.
My advice is to arrive in Italy and Naples already with the change made at your bank. Get an idea of your budget, evaluate what you can spend with paper and what you need to pay in cash. Having made this first step, when you arrive in Naples you will have to change your money only if it is necessary or if you have exceeded the budget that you had set out to spend before the trip.
But in making these assessments you have to take into consideration that the use of cash in the city is more widespread than using a credit card or debit card. Especially for small expenses, always better to use cash.
Made this necessary premise, in addition to the Money Exchange you find at the main points of arrival in the city (airport, train station) , port) you can change at a bank or withdraw from an ATM which gives you more trust and guarantee.
Usually the institution that offers more security, but also lower commissions, as probably already customers of the bank, is always the one best known in the country of origin.
And that's why I thought it useful to leave a list of the major foreign banks you can find in Naples.
|Yellow||€200 banknote da||Green||€100 banknote||Orange||€50 banknote||Blue||€20 banknote||Red||€10 banknote||Grey||€5 banknote||Gold metal||€0,50 coin||Gold metal||€0,20 coin||Gold metal||€0,10 coin||Bronze||€0,05 coin||Bronze||€0,02 coin||Bronze||€0,01 coin|
There are also: 2 euro coin and 1 euro coin , that they're made of two different metals.
€ 50, € 20, € 10 and € 5 banknotes are very common. Those from € 500 and € 200 are not welcome. The most common coins are € 2, € 1, € 0.50, € 0.20 and € 0.10.
The cents are not widespread, the € 0.05 coins are still widely used, but the € 0.02 and 0.01 coins € they are used very little and it is not surprising if the rest is always rounded even for the habit that has been created by the entrance of Italy in the euro zone.
The use of the credit card is not widespread, but all businesses accept it.
Debt card payments are more frequent, but in the city the use of cash is very widespread, and therefore those coming from countries where the use of cash is little used is not impressions, here it is normal.
