FIRST STEPS IN THE CITY

F.A.Q. ACCOMODATION Is it normal for the homeowner to ask 1 or maximum 2 monthly payments plus a one-month bail? Can I trust him? ✓ Usually there is no need to be worry. For some time now it has become a consolidated practice

ACCOMODATION F.A.Q.

• My homeowner has not issued any lease, is it normal? ✓ Of course not. This is an illegal practice that we do not recommend you to accept. These types of "black" contracts provide very few guarantees to the renters, they can evict you at any time without notice and without any money restitution. It has often happened that some erasmus students have had a lot of problems with their homeowners as a result of some home party. In addition, a valid signed contract reduces the possibility that some intermediary may receive percentages from your rent, paying more. I have been a while here and I don’t find any single available rooms, what can I do it? ✓ Naples is experiencing a period of crazy tourist expansion. Many homeowners have decided to maximize profits by making their properties into B&Bs. Single rooms begin to become more difficult to find and their price is increasing constantly. Our advice? You can organize groups with your friends and rent double rooms. The best quality-price choice, not to mention that the erasmus experience will benefit only. ▪

F.A.Q. ACCOMODATION

ACCOMODATION F.A.Q.

▪ Is it difficult to find a room in Naples? ✓ Absolutely not, don’t be afraid. We don’t advise you to contact intermediaries (people who want to find a home for you) or real estate agencies. They would show you more expensive deals than you might find even alone. ▪ What are the price ranges for the various bids? ✓ In the Historic Center of Naples all offers are very similar. Single room: 250/300 €/month, bills not included. Double room: 200/250 €/month, bills not included. Obviously this is a simplification. This will not prevent you from finding rooms at lower prices (or higher, and in that case you should let them lgo). ▪ In which area do you recommend to live? ✓ We suggest you to live in Old Town for few reasons: the most of the city's university centers are concentrated in that area, the cost of living is lower than in other parts of the city, the most of international and university nightlife is held in this area and it is well connected with the rest of the city. If your university headquarters is located in Fuorigrotta or Capua, we don’t advise you to live in those areas because those ones alive only during the day and in the evening you may not enjoy youth gathering points as you would find them at Old Town. You would spend more time at home during the night, isolated, than taking public transport to get your university every morning. ▪ Further advice ✓ We suggest you to check the conditions of furniture and appliances. It often happens that homeowners reuse disused furniture and appliances from their respective homes to use it in the properties they offer to the students. Always check if the appliances work well and about the furniture don’t give a superficial look, drawers and cabinets may seem in good condition, but then verify that they can be damaged inside.

STAZIONE RAYLWAY AND FIUMICINO EXPRESS

GARIBALDI STATION Aeroporto a parte, vi sono altri due modi per arrivare in città: tramite bus o treno. Il loro punto di arrivo in città è rappresentato dalla Stazione Centrale di Piazza Garibaldi.

GARIBALDI SQUARE Piazza Garibaldi è una piazza di Napoli situata a limite dei quartieri Pendino, Mercato, San Lorenzo e Vicaria. È una delle piazze più importanti e affollate della città in quanto dal 1866 si affaccia su di essa la stazione Napoli centrale (terza in Italia per traffico passeggeri).

FIUMICINO EXPRESS In recent years many erasmus have preferred to use this bus line to get to Naples from Rome. Although this service is rather lowcost, often rates (which change according to reservations and according to season) may be cheaper. However, we recommend it. The minimum promotional price from Fiumicino/Ciampino Airport(Roma) to Piazza Garibaldi (Naples) is 5€. For more info and booking, we will find a section on our platform in this link.

If you are an ESA Card holder, you will get a -20% discount booking your tickets at our office.

CENTRAL RAILWAY STATION A big part of the whole station is occupied by the train station. You can not see it. Inside, there are many direct connections to the various lines of the Metro Line 1, Line 2 and Circumvesuviana.

TAXI SERVICE TAXI That’s one of the most incredible contents. We can assume that you won’t have your own mean of transport, so you will use the public transport. What if you would use the taxi service? What is the cost? What do you have to avoid?

In those years few Erasmus students actually understood how does the taxi service work in Naples. We are going to explain it, with the official attachment of the Comune di Napoli.

TAXI SERVICE

HOW DOES THE PREVIOUS TABLE WORK? The PREARRANGED RATES, on prearranged ways both urbans and extra-urbans, INCLUDE every supplementary addition (to/from the airport, nocturnal way, nonworking day, luggages, animals, radio call). The rates are valid for THE WHOLE DAY during WORKING AND NON-WORKING DAYS. The application of the prearranged rates indicated on the rate table HAS TO BE REQUIRED by the USER at the START OF THE ROUTE WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF REFUSAL by the driver, who MUST, before the departure, give a duly completed receipt indicating the route chosen by the user and the amount settled in the rate table. This service does not activate the use of the taximeter (taximeter off). The prearranged rate is applied for the total number of the passengers on the taxi. The rate table, both in Italian and English, must be displayed visibly on the front of the car's seatback to allow the user to freely choose one of the two rate systems before the start of the route.

DISCOVERING NAPLES

THE CITY OF NAPLES

Full history and intense city, Naples was founded about 3000 years ago as Partenope by Turkish and Greek merchants. Subsequently, the settlement took the name of Paleopolis (old city) and in 475 B.C. it became Neapolis, the new city. In the various phases of foreign rule, the City developed and grew to become the capital of the most important pre-unification States: the Kingdom of the two Sicilies. The Bourbons, which at that time reigned over the Kingdom, built a magnificent palace in Caserta and filled the city with historical buildings of all kinds.

The historic centre of Naples, with its splendid palaces and popular districts, is currently part of the world heritage protected by UNESCO. In addition to its famous views that can be seen from different locations of the centre, Naples also boasts an underground city.

This welcoming city is marked by contradictions and folkloric traditions such as the annual miracle regarding the blood of San Gennaro, the patron saint of the city: the blood liquefies before the eyes of the faithful. It’s impossible not to mention two products that have made Naples famous throughout the world: the pizza, which is only a part of the rich local cuisine, and music. You can enjoy the historical centre both day and night. Already from the first light of dawn, Naples offers a unique spectacle: the ancient streets and alleys with laundry stretched out to dry which makes the ambiance full of colors. After an early morning walk, in the afternoon you can enjoy a cultural visit. The day, however, does not end with the sunset: the historical centre of Naples offers a typical Mediterranean nightlife: bars, pubs, restaurants and discos for all tastes, from the “alternative” to “cool”ones.

It is easily accessible and it is a pedestrian area. This is a significant feature in a city always chaotic like Naples.

CAUTIOUSNESS ABOUT SOME AREAS

CAUTIOUSNESS ABOUT SOME AREAS In the past few years Naples improved a lot as a city, especially for what concerns security. Nevertheless it still is a big metropolitan city, some episodes of criminality are still on. Despite this…there is no need to be afraid! This section aims to warn you, to avoid you some bad experiences during your stay in Naples. Usually, you just have to have your eyes wide open and avoid unconscious behavior to enjoy the full city experience. Thieves and robbers hit foreign citizens especially, perhaps by recognizing them by their way talking to each other. Here there are some valuable tips: •

It is good practice not to carry all the documents or large amounts of money. Remember: Naples is a very cheap city and most often just bring a photocopy of a valid document!

Do not wear jewelery accessories that are too flashy and expensive. We also recommend you to limit the use of expensive smartphones in public, especially at night (iPhone 7, Samsung S8 etc ... etc ...). If you have a secondary smartphone it is good to use it.

Be careful about your belongings and remember to close your bags, backpacks and suitcases, always. This will reduce the "temptation" to the potential criminal.

It is important to denounce immediately any abuse or crime to the competent authorities, such as the police or carabinieri. In many cases their intervention, especially in recent years, has proved useful and effective. Do not be discouraged!

CAUTIOUSNESS ABOUT SOME AREAS

THE CITY OF NAPLES

These are some areas in which is better to pay attention:

GARIBALDI SQUARE If you come to Naples by train you will arrive to the station of Piazza Garibaldi. As all stations of big cities, it is not the best place for an international student or for a tourist, even though recently there are more controls. In here we suggest not to walk showing expensive objects such as: Rolex, golden necklaces, valuable earrings and so on. Do not trust of abusive taxi drivers and street traders (they sell ipads and phones), do not be tricked by the tables where you can play with the three cards. The famous “pacco napoletano� (ndt it is a way in which Neapolitan define something that tricks you) was born here. Apart from this things, you should not have any problem during the day, in the past few years it is more and more controlled by security.

MUSEO (PIAZZA CAVOUR) During the day is a very touristy area. There are no problem in walking here during the day. Unfortunately this cannot be said of the night hours, during those times not many people walk there, making it an area not really safe.

QUARTIERI SPAGNOLI In the past few years they improved a lot. In these alleys there are many restaurants appreciated by the tourists because of their traditional food and cheap prices. Nevertheless we suggest not to go too deep in these alleys, especially at night. It is better to stay in the first 100/200 metres, close to the main street via Roma/via Toledo. www.erasmusnapoli.it

THE CITY OF NAPLES PIZZA MARGHERITA

CULINARY TRADITION

The pizza margherita is the typical Neapolitan pizza, with tomato, mozzarella (in the traditional pizza it is not used the mozzarella of bufala but fior di latte) fresh basil, salt, oil. Together with pizza marinara is the most popular Italian pizza. It represents the symbol of the Italian culinary heritage, known in the whole world in all of its varieties.

One spread belief claims that in the June of 1889, in honor of the Queen of Italy, Margherita of Savoy, the chef Raffaele Esposito of the pizzeria Brand made up a dish that he called Pizza Margherita (the term pizza was then unknown outside of Naples, and it was used to point a sweet dish) where the salty toppings that he used tomato, mozzarella and basil represented the colors of the Italian flag. According to recent studies though, the story of the pizza Margherita made by “Brandi� for the first time would be an historic false. It seems that the Pizza Margherita has been in Naples before 1889, but around 1796 and 1810.

FRIED PIZZA This dish shows the creativity of the Neapolitan people during times of crises. At the end of the Second World War the city lacked of everything. Even pizza had become a luxury: to make it was necessary a wood burning oven, tomatoes and mozzarella that were not easy to find, and therefore expensive. It was necessary something easy to cook for those who wanted to sell, and cheap for those who wanted to buy it. That’s why it is known as the “poor sister of the oven pizza”. That’s how the Neapolitan invented the “fried pizza” also known as the pizza of the people, since it was sold by women in the streets, to earn something after the war.

The Frittatina di pasta is a must of the street food, there are different varietes both for the toppings and fillings. In all of the food frie shops, rĂ´tisserie and all of the bars are shown next to the tipical fried pizzas and other neapolintan food. Careful not to mistake it for the Frittata di maccheroni, that is made with leftovers of pasta, eggs that is usually eaten in small trips.

The frittatina di pasta is another matter. The frittatina di pasta is made with besciamella, meat, peas, mozzarella and covered in pastella. This is the basic recipe. Also in this case there are different varietes: the thing in common among all of those is the type of pasta, always in a long shape, the bucatini are the most popular. The frittatine di pasta are just made in pastella.

When you find them with breadcrumbs is because the besciamella is not thick enough, while the secret is thick besciamella. Fun fact: a tale says that Pulcinella was sad since he could never make frittatine, because in his house there were never leftovers of pasta.
