Chiaia is where the wealthy people of Napoli live, it's just around the corner or indeed over the hill from the rest of Napoli but a world away. Here you can be confident that if you get a green light it will be safe to cross the street. There is even the odd smile and greeting.
Thanks to its central position, Chiaia's posh neighbourhood has become a popular destination not only among tourists, but also among those who, taking advantage of their own free time, need to make a little tour among all its exclusive boutiques and shops; as a matter of fact, iti is possible to walk across a long road starting from Toledo Street and Dei Mille Street, full of such interesting and historical buildings like a triumphal arch-shaped bridge with a lift on the inside. Following, the road leads to some other streets like Filangieri Street, Cavallerizza a Chiaia Alley and Belledonne Alley where the wild nightlife takes place, whether it is summer or winter.
You will not find a deep fried pizza outlet anywhere near Chiaia, it's more your sushi bar boutique hotel area. This is probably the place to stay if you only feel like dipping your toe into the real Napoli.
