If you're a solo traveler, Naples is a city ready to welcome you with open arms. Perhaps while planning your trip, you looked online for information concerning city life: what to do, what to see, and precautions to take. As a Neapolitan, a lot of people always ask me for recommendations about Naples, and I am always open to sharing my deep knowledge of the city with them.
However, when the conversation goes down the road of public safety, I get a bit upset. I always tell people that the problems you may find in Naples are the same as in cities all over the world. I don’t get upset with the people, of course. I get upset with the universal belief that Naples is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. This is simply not true.
Naples has a big heart. It's a city that loves to share and connected with people all around the world. If you decide to visit it, you'll have an unforgettable experience.
Visiting the city on your own is always a good choice: you can take an amazing cooking class, enjoy the breathtaking views of the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius from the hills of the Posillipo and Vomero neighborhoods, or lose yourself in the magical nightlife of the Chiaia and Vomero neighborhoods. Naples can't wait to see you.
If you are traveling alone and you are used to it you know the minimum precautions to be taken. Avoid the Central Station area in the evening and do not go into isolated areas that you do not know. They are basic councils, which are valid in every city that can be visited.
