Naples is located in the south of Italy and has a population of 967,069 people within the city and a metro population of 3,115,320 residents. The city is famous for its proximity to Pompeii, the home of pizza, and the charming old town. It’s worth mentioning that Naples can be dangerous, especially at night and in certain districts, but most visitors are safe.
