Centro Storico is the heart of the city, I would recommend staying in a hotel that is in/close to the area. So many sights to see, plus amazing restaurants to try, it truly is a place like no other.

I may be wrong but my impression (also confirmed by my hotel staff) is that this is where it is all happening in Naples - tons of people any time day or night, lots of bars and restaurants, very vibrant. Being so busy and crowded...More
