4. Rosso Pomodoro

Let me give it to you straight: Rosso Pomodoro is a multi-national chain of restaurants and it doesn’t have that little Italian trattoria feel to it. Given its multi-levelled complex in one of Rome’s busiest piazzas, I honestly never would have looked inside. But, when a friend of mine’s dad who comes from Naples (the birth place of pizza) said it was his favourite, I decided it was worth a try.

Giorgia Beasley

13. Watch out for the thieves.

In Rome, Naples and Florence they very often steal wallets, passports and cameras. Keep an eye on your things, do not carry valuables in a backpack behind  and do not wear expensive jewelry. This fate touched me. I forgot about caution and put a purse with 500 euros into my back pocket, and a moment  it was gone. It goes without saying that the rest of the time I ate not Italian pasta but instant noodle!

How to get to the Amalfi Coast:

To be completely honest, it is a bit of a pain to get to the Amalfi Coast. It is really tucked away and transportation in Italy can be unreliable, as a result of frequent labor strikes and just generally inconsistent transport. However, if you’re up for it, the destination is completely worth it. And if you’re an adventurer or travel lover like me, you’ll know that getting to a place is an adventure in itself. The best way to get to the Amalfi Coast is via Naples. I recommend flying into the Naples airport and from there taking a direct train to Sorrento. If you are not staying in Sorrento, you should be able to find a public bus or train from there that will take you to your final destination.

Trip to Baia di Ieranto

A well-hidden little piece of paradise, right at the meeting point of the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno, Italy. I had some friends doing their EVS, European Voluntary Service there. Since I was doing mine in Naples, it was only a matter of time to finally visit them.

Regina Gajdos

"O sole mio !" Discovering Naples Bay

The first words that come to one’s mind when we refer to Naples are usually linked to the dark side of the city’s past (and sometimes present) like mafia, camorra, garbage mountains, immigrants, a poor city in the south of Italy. This image is surely unworthy for a city with a history stretching back to more than 2500 years full of heritage art-buildings, amazing monuments, built in a natural landscape that was blessed by the gods and is kissed by the sun, with people whose Mediterranean warm character colors the narrow streets and fills them with life. Greeks, Romans, Norman invaders,  Angevins (french), Spanish rulers, Bourbon royal dynasty, they all developed and shaped the city over the centuries, and also left their footprint on the skyline of Naples, that was once the most powerful and feared kingdom in Italy and which is nowadays one of the most authentic regions, and a “must visit” travel destination.

How to do Naples on a Budget: Sun, Pizza and Ancient History

First stepping into Naples is almost like stepping into another world. The bright, blue sky and sweltering humidity make it feel like paradise. The cars, scooters and people flying around brings a certain intensity to the place. But amongst all the chaos and contrasting serenity, it all seems to work together to make an excellent city for tourists on a budget. Making Your Way Around Busy Naples When you first arrive in Naples – whether it be the airport, bus or train station – you will soon realise that public transport is very limited. In the centre of the city, there are lots of public buses and lots of trains going to the outskirts and surrounds of the city, and you can also get a bus from the airport to the centre. But since most of the roads are tiny cobblestoned walkways, you will probably end up walking around most of the time – perfect for someone on a budget! Walking around a city can be a great way to explore it. Everything to see and do in Naples is located within a reasonable walking distance if you are staying near the city centre. Just make sure that you dedicate certain days to certain areas of the city that you want to see, otherwise, you will be too exhausted to explore this amazing city. Walking is also a great way to save lots of money, and there’s always plenty of places to stop for a drink on the way. Just remember that every footpath is also a road for motorcycles and cars – you will often hear them beep their horn at you from behind as a warning – and they will try to get through, no matter how big the crowd is! Be polite, and the majority of locals will also be, and be careful of pickpockets! Eating Famous Pizza Love pizza? Well, you’ll be in the right place! The city of Naples – and Italy in general – is known for its absolutely delicious pizzas. On every street corner, you will find somewhere that is selling famous Italian Pizza, some of them good and some not so good – according to the locals. So where can you find these ‘good’ pizza places? Perhaps one of the most famous pizza places in Naples and Italy is located along ‘Via dei Tribunali’, one of the main tourist streets right in the heart of Naples. ‘Sorbillo’ is owned by one of the oldest families of pizza makers in Naples, and specialises in traditional pizzas. You will have to wait about 30 minutes to an hour, but it is definitely worth the wait and it is also not too pricey for its great quality pizzas. You can even leave your name at the door and come back later if you like – giving you lots more time to explore the city. A 360 View of Naples The highest point in Naples is perfect for those of you who are after that perfect panoramic shot. It is situated atop of a medieval castle – ‘Castel Sant’Elmo’- and provides a stunning 360 view of the city and its surrounds. It is not particularly difficult to reach or expensive, and luckily there is a cable car to take you to almost the top. You can take the cable car from ‘Monte Santo’ to ‘Via Morghen’, where the castle is only a short 10-minute walk away. You will have to buy tickets to enter the castle, but they are very cheap and are definitely worth the view. The castle itself is a spectacular structure to admire from even the outside. Dating back to the 1200s, the castle is a definite site to see. It is enormous and can be seen from miles away. From its structure, you can tell how ancient it is, but it has been well preserved.
