Life in Naples

Safety and Security

Italy has made huge efforts over the past decade to crack down on crime, particularly mob crime. While the record is still not great, violent crime in Italian cities is, by and large, far lower than that recorded in American cities of comparable sizes.

Property crime is likely to be the biggest challenge of a move to Naples, and it is important to be aware of pickpockets, particularly in crowds and areas frequented by tourists. The Piazza Garibaldi, near the central train station and the Quarter Spagnoli are known hubs for petty crime in the city.

Burglaries in homes are also very common and on the increase with areas such as Comero, Posillipo, and the Pozzuoli area the most frequent targets of such attacks.

While this all paints a bleak picture, it is worth noting that life in the city is no more violent than life in any other. Indeed, it has a better reputation than Milan.

For those living in Naples, taking precautions such as locking the house up before leaving, being aware of your surroundings and installing anti-theft devices in vehicles and property, can help to prevent crime. As with any city, taking responsibility for your safety and that of your family is key to staying safe.

Culture and Leisure

Naples has been a center of art and culture for generations, and a move there means youโ€™ll never be short of things to do on the weekend. Internationally renowned for its wine and cuisine, Naples offers some of the finest dining experiences in the world, so you can always be sure of impressing visiting family members.

The city boasts some of the best collections of museums of any European destination, with artifacts from the ancient Roman Empire and works by contemporary greats such as Andy Warhol and the classic Italian masters, all on display and available to the public.

Transportation in Naples

Public transportation in Naples is extensive, and you can get around the city by using buses, trams, and a rapid transit system which uses both surface and metro railway lines. Sub-urban rail and frequent ferries from the harbor link Naples to the surrounding areas within the province.

If you wish to go further, getting around Italy is remarkably easy thanks to great national links and ten international airports. The high-speed rail network links Naples to cities in the north, including Turin and Milan. The road network too is well developed and includes both national and local roads as well as motorways, the majority of which are tolled.
