This area is full of over priced restaurants and hotels, but you pay for what you get. There's the marina with some outstanding boats (and a few battered "rowing" boats you can hire to sunbathe on (there is no beach here)) and the vistas from the marina restaurants are exceptional (especially Transatlantico - which will get its own 5* review).
The castle Ovo also provides a higher vantage point for some spectacular views and is free to visit.
It is busy during the day but seems to really come to life in the evening, you can expect to pay 7 euros for a beer and 5 to & 7 euros for a glass of wine and 3 to 4 euros for coke, fanta etc. The cheapest food is pizza and these start around 8 euros for a basic margarita up to 17 euros for sea food toppings. pasta is around 14 euros and steaks anything from 18 to 30 euros and usually don't include vegetables, Fish is also very expensive.
It is a base for visiting the main local tourist hot spots of Pompeii, Vesuvius, Sorrento Herculaneum and the isle of Capri.
We travelled independently not part of any organised tour/s.
It costs about 15 euros (fixed price) to get from the area to the main central station, but then the local train is only about 4 euros to Sorrento (takes 1 hour and 15 mins), Vesuvius 2.8 Euros (45 mins), Herculaneum 2.6 euros (25 mins) - timings are on the slow stopping every station train - for the fast train you can knock off between 10 and 25 mins journey time. Capri is reached via the ferry about 35 euros return and takes about an hour.
Whilst a very expensive 4 night city break, we did fit in quite a lot and were blessed with glorious weather. And a city we would very much like to visit again and maybe spend more time in Naples to take in its history and culture.
