Naples Useful Information: Where to Find your Consulate in Naples

Keep in mind that Naples isn’t the capital of Italy, so we can’t help you find any embassies in the city, being that the only way to help you in that aspect would be to tell you to get on a train and get yourself to Rome. But worry not, because Naples has a wide array of consulates that can cater to your needs during your stay in this beautiful port city and you have on hand tourist informations about Naples.

Plus, being one of the most important port cities in Italy this brings a great number of consulates to reside here, so you won’t have a problem when looking. Keep in mind this map with the major consulates.

Naples Emergency Numbers:

Now hopefully you won’t need any Emergency numbers in Naples, but just in case remember that the EU emergency number is 112 - this means it’s valid in all of the EU, so when you’re visiting other countries that are member states remember that it’s valid - but Italy has three other emergency numbers 113 for the Police, 115 for the Fire Department, and 118 for the Ambulances and First Aid. Keep in mind that you’ll probably have a quicker response if you use the Italian numbers, but also use the EU one if you’re in need.

What language is spoken in Naples?

Yes, this is a frequently asked question and the answer is Italian. At times it may sound different from the kind of Italian you heard in Florence or Rome, but that's only because they use a different dialect.

Is Naples a safe place to visit?

Poor Naples has certainly been given an unfair reputation. It may not look as polished as other Italian cities, but it is relatively safe minus the petty theft such as pickpocketing. However, this is common throughout Europe, so watch your bags of course, but don't let this reputation deter you from enjoying it. According to the Crime Index by city, there are many major cities in the US that are more dangerous, so keep that in mind.

Is Naples safe at night?

Again, like any city, you may want to avoid the train station (Piazza Garibaldi) area at night as there tends to be more crime there during those hours. Otherwise, keep your wits about you as you would anywhere else when traveling.

How long do you need in Naples?

1-2 days could suffice to see all you need to see in this city. However, 3 is even nicer if you want to incorporate day trips to Pompeii and Sorrento.

How many days should I stay in Naples?

See above!

What is the best time of year to visit Pompeii?

The best times to visit are late April & May and September & early October. I would say this goes for Italy in general. It won't be scorching hot and you'll avoid most of the rain!
