Safety issues in Naples


Napoli is a beautiful town, typical safety problems that can be avoided if you follow several basic rules:

- keep the money in a safe place and only a little amount in you wallets;

- don't travel with expensive jewels or watches;

- don't walk around with an expensive camera hanging around your neck or a fancy phone in your hands;

- don't go into dark, remote streets;

- don't leave your luggage unattended;

- be careful on very crowded public transportation means: keep an eye or a hand on the luggage all the time;

- don't carry your purse in your hand on the outter side of the street (pickpockets on small motorbikes slowing down next to you, pulling your purse away from you and disappearing to the horizon are very typical).
