Life in Naples is pretty chill, the prices are not to high, and a lot of beautiful places to visit that one month is not enough. Don't trust who told you that people will try to steal your gold jewellery, that's pretty ridiculous. You'll have more troubles in Milan and Rome than Naples if we are talking about this. Just saying facts. Talking about risk of cancer is not that bad here comparing to other cities full of pollution were you have to wear a surgical mask. Anyway, pretty good place to live but it's not my favourite city in the world where to live. I don't suggest you to live here if you are a British gentleman, you have to be a "Polite Badass" who knows what to do. If you just want to do a one to two weeks trip stay cool and don't worry :)

Unfortunately Italians for the most live in the past and they feel cool just because maybe they’re able to save 500 eur a month.

Italy is good to be visited as a tourist, but an hell to live.
Just bureaucracy will drive you crazy

Hello Em!
What a pity that you have had such a bad impression of Napoli!
I wonder: How is it possible that you have nearly nothing positive to say about this city?
Differently from you, I think Naples is one of the most beautiful/ most friendly cities I have seen (and I have lived there for several years too).

Although it is true that parking a Porsche there and/or wearing some expensive necklaces might cause you some worries, it is also true that Naples is one of the most interesting cities you can find - not only in Italy, but in the world.
As a matter of fact Naples and its islands, Capri, Ischia, Procida etc., are very ancient, have a marvelous nature, a very rich culture and history and long traditions.
Naples always has had and has a deep love for music, for art, for extremely genuine and tasty food. It is a city where you can enjoy the best coffee, the best ice creams, and yes, the best pizzas as you mention, in addition to some lovely drinks like limoncello, nocino etc etc.

While you were in Naples did you go to see 'Il teatro dell'Opera/Il San Carlo', which is the oldest Opera house in the world, or the 'Federico II', the oldest university with a great variety of academic disciplines, or 'L'Acquario Comunale', the oldest aquarium, or the absolute first 'funicolare' in Europe? Have you seen 'Il Museo di San Martino' where you can admire the oldest and most beautiful Nativities in the world, or 'Il Museo Archeologico' with the richest collections you can find in the world... Not to talk about all of those fantastic churches like 'Il Monastero di Santa Chiara'? Or 'Il Gesu' Nuovo', or perhaps 'La Basilica di San Giovanni Maggiore' where Thomas Aquinas was teaching and lived? Did you see that marvelous piece of art, a statue of Christ called 'Il Cristo Velato'?!? Did you experience the most beautiful metro in Europe? Or the fascinating 'Castel dell'Ovo', surrounded by its wonderful green and cobalt blue sea, the lovely sky, the warm sun, and so on, and so on, and so on?
Perhaps in the future you could go back to Napoli and to its islands, but with far more attentive eyes... curious ears... and an open mind.
- Only then perhaps you will discover the rare beauty of this unique and special city with its many interesting peculiarities and contrasts.
