See Naples And Die!

Updated on October 8, 2009

In my Settling It Forever: Where Is The World's Best Pizza Hub a Neapolitan by the name of carlo magno (Charles The Great) wrote this comment:

don't listen to HAL LICINO, pozzuoli is still thriving and has a great nightlife, and a lot of pizzeria's, via napli is filled with them alone, and that's one road, down by the port of pozzuoli there are a lot of small rsturants, but the speaiality of pozzuoli has always been fish not pizza, but with all the polluted water that is here they have to go into the real deep ocean and find some decent fish.

i've lived in naples for 23 years and ate a few thousand pizzas myself and i think that they are all great, but for the utmost best you have to go downtown naples, the trianon pizzeria is always till full and you need to advance reserve a table up to 1-2 weeks ahead, the reason it has gone down is because of the area of FURCELLA witch is probably the worst area in naples followed by the spanish quarter so with a lot of robberies and hold ups, ecc ecc a lot of people don't go there anymore.

and don't worry about your wallet, its safe in a lot of places and there is the same crime like in any metropolis.

stay away from these areas though: furcella, spanish quarter (quartieri spagnoli), Piazza garibaldi, Secondigliano, Scampia (the most dangerous for gang related)

i may have forgotten a few places.

also a very important thing to always be aware of in naples is the DRIVING, they often don't respect red lights,never give the right of way, so expect the worse driving in all of europe.

Hey, Chucky The Grape, Pozzuoli definitely has great nightlife. Just head north along the Via Domiziana and have your pick of some of Ethiopia's finest ladies in hotpants for the bargain price ten euros on slow weeknights. Beware some of them have a surprise inside those hotpants as they're ladies only in initial outward appearance.

Sure, Pozzuoli has plenty of filthy, rat ridden, fly infested overpriced greasy spoon tourist trap dives and the specialty is fish, so even when you order a pizza with no fish on it, it still smells like fish. Three day old fish left out to rot in the sun!

Do you work for the Trianon? It's rather funny as the last couple of times I passed by you could have shot a cannon through the dining room and not even hit a waiter.

Actually, you must work for Naples Tourism:

"and don't worry about your wallet, its safe in a lot of places"

Yeah. It's safe in a lot of places... like at your home anywhere outside of Campania.

I guess I can forgive you since you are like many of your fellow Neapolitans who look around at the disgusting, revolting, retch-inducing, garbage-slathered, crumbling, collapsing, stinking, choking temple to anarchy, camorra and "prepotenza" and see Disneyland. That doesn't mean that you are any less blind, deluded, and outright crazy.

See Naples And Die. Yeah. If you go to see Naples, you very likely will die. If you can keep from getting shot in the crossfire of a drug deal gone bad; from some scugnizzo ripping your gold necklace off and slicing through your carotid; from diseases spread by garbage-fattened rats; or from cancers caused by exposure to decades of toxic waste dumping... then some boy-racer hitting 200 kph on the Via Caracciolo will do you in!

There is one thing that could happen to Naples that would be very positive for the entire world: A huge Vesuvius eruption that makes 79 AD look like a firecracker.

Of course I don't wish a fiery death to anyone, not even Neapolitans (although I must confess I have been often tempted). I hope that when the devastating eruption occurs, Neapolitans have sufficient notice to find safety in Regina Coeli, Marassi, Santa Maria Maggiore, and other prisons where the vast majority of them belong.

Have a nice day in Naples... if there IS a nice day in Naples! :)

      See Naples And Die - from the disease of your choice.

      I absolutely adore Italy, but Naples is such a let down.

      It is filthy.

      For all the negative comments about Naples, Up Yours! You must live in a world where you only ever see the glass half empty.

      Pitty and shame on you. If you ever have the chance to immerse yourself in Neopolitan culture,only then you can truly appreciate what a poor dismal life you quick to comment people lead, if you don't have anything good to say don't!!! Naples is the cultual centre of the world. you who write such crap! must come from the the asshole part of the world.....

      I had had the honor to live in this city for TWO years. I am completely and utterly in love with this city and all the passion it contains. If all you focus on is the trash then that is all you will ever see. You will not see the magnificent buildings, the passionate lovers, the incredible castles...anything that is Napoli. Not one time in Naples was I ever scared of being robbed or being killed(I am a young, red-headed female-obviously not Italian.) This city, I believe, is the best in Europe, maybe even the world. And I can vouch for myself as I have been to over 40 countries and seen many things. The food is incredible, the people are incredible and if you can't see that than get the hell out of my city---Bella Bella Napoli. ;)

      The actual origins of Neapolitan are not clearly attributed to Naples, as the only thing that the Neapolitans have invented other than pizza is smelly chaos! :)

      Was Van/Choc/Straw ice cream invented in Naples? Isn't it called Neapolitan?
