Relocating to Naples

About the City

Naples is home to around four million people, almost a million residing within the city’s administrative limits, and the rest living in the metropolitan area. Naples is the third largest municipality in Italy and the capital of the Campania Region.

Occupied first by the Ancient Greeks, then the Roman Republic and later serving as the capital city of both the Kingdom of Naples and the Two Sicilies, the history of the city is truly unique.

The Climate in Naples

Expect hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters, should you move to Naples, which is subject to the typical Mediterranean climate. Popular with tourists, the city gets exceptionally warm during the summer months from June to October, with average high temperatures of 27°C.

Finding Accommodation

Naples has a slightly shady reputation when it comes to cleanliness and safety. As with all cities, this is more deserved in certain areas than others.

If you are looking for a nice area when moving to Naples, consider the historical center or ‘Centro Storico’. Parking is admittedly a nightmare and house prices here do come at a premium, but the location is second to none and it is one of the loveliest areas in the city.

If the Centro Storico is not for you, venture further afield to Chiaia or Pozzuoli or Monte Di Procida outside of the city limits. These are both great choices with good safety records and lots to offer expats. Indeed, there is a high proportion of American families in the Pozzuoli or Monte Di Procida areas, which is reflected in the restaurants, bars and schools available there.

The islands of Capri and Ischia are also commutable from Naples and can seem like a great choice for those with families or a love of a more rural lifestyle. While the ferry links between the city and these isles are great, it is worth noting that these routes can be cancelled due to rough seas in the winter and are far from reliable all year round.

Its relative size and dense population, as well as its thriving tourist sector, makes Naples a particularly expensive city to live in.

If you are looking to rent a property in Naples, expect to pay around 770 EUR a month for a one bedroom city center apartment, rising to 1000 EUR for a family-sized three bed apartment in a similar location. This represents a premium of around 500 EUR per month over similar-sized properties outside of the city limits.

Working in Naples

Italy’s fourth largest economy after Milan, Rome and Turin, Naples has a lot of economic clout. Driven by the tourist industry, the service sector represents the largest employer in the city, although manufacturing does still factor highly, with Alfa Romeo, Alenia and a number of shipyards operating out of the area.
