Dude, Naples is not that bad at all. In the city centre it is actually safer that other italian cities because people still live and work there, you feel safer because is more alive for all nights.

Naples dangerous city? Like any other cities it has its hot spots . It's a great city has character and charm Can you say the same refs to Chicago or Rio dijaneiro Look at those cities crime rate. You would find them worse than good ol' Napoli.

Is Naples really that bad? I heard it was the most dangerous city in Italy!

Naples never has been a safe city, if you just happen to look at someone in the eye they may react with: "the f*** you looking at". Also never get on the bus and watch out for shootings that may occur in the " Forcella " quarter. Never wear something of valuable. Avoid lonely streets.

"Gangsters are even classy?" What are they now? Qualified stolen-jewellery resellers? AH! No, if you show them you're not afraid, they'll give you a "classy" bullet in the forehead or a stab in the belly, then what happens? you think the bastard will get caught? nope! this is what happens instead: you call the police, and they add the case to the pile they already have, and will tell you sorry this is ordinary administration we can't do nothing of more than adding the case, or, *if* you're lucky, and the robber gets caught, he won't even have to worry 'cause in Naples there's common use of the expedited trial, which means that after some days/months he'll get out of jail! Innocent people (even kids!) get killed almost everyday because of the local mafia "failing at aiming" or getting wrong to recognise a rival gangster! Also, many and many more kids over there don't get to go to school or working, but join one of the various local gangster-family'; and you wanna know why? cause they get paid many much better than an ordinary job.. which in Naples is already difficult to find. Have you heard of Scampia? They even released a TV-series called Gomorra that'll explain you. Out of 1000 people, 100 is the good person, and 900 is the gangster person. Don't even think about of getting out of there in one piece, without a police-escort. There are some 99% safe areas in Naples, just be sure to be walking where the policemen are. And, let me tell you, as having exchanged a few words with a person who REALLY knows how things go around over there, he told me: '' come on you kidding me you have nothing [of money] on you? If you get robbed and say to them[robbers] you have nothing on you they will get really mad and stab you! '' . So, pay attention and absolutely avoid lonely roads. There are some nice places where to safely walk in Naples, like the historical center of next of the sea. Be aware of your surrounding cause them robbers are hell of a good and you won't even realise you got robbed! Only a good thing is there left to say: situation is... improved... and that's all!

One of the most gorgeous places on earth. I have travelled the world over and never been surrounded by such a feeling of community and depth. it may be corrupt but its got heart and something cohesiveness to it. The gangsters are even classy if you show them you are not afraid and speak to them with respect they are very cool. They don't bother you. Makes the gang bangers thieves in the US look like Clowns just like Obama.
I actually felt safe and the surrounding and the food off the map. Not a good place for terrorists to try to do something as from I understand street justice kicks in and they hang them in public to demonstrate that its not a good place for them. No Arabs

I am going back

Awesome looking for the Vesuvio Scenario and etcetera, but degrading for the rest. Naples is one of the worst cities regarding the living condition in Italy. In some areas it seems to be living in Bangladesh.

Life in Naples is fantastic! It is a metropolitan city and of course something happens as in London, Hong Kong, Berlin and so on. Obviously you have to pay attention to you holdings, but not at an extreme level. Naples (averagely speaking) is safer than a lot of other cities in the world!
