Theft: watch out for pickpockets, especially in tourist areas. Be careful also with the car, always leave it well closed and with nothing in sight. Do not open the trunk if there are suitcases inside when leaving the car parked.
Driving: Italian driving is something special: it is quite normal for them to get half a meter away from your car if they want to overtake you. Therefore, it is best to always drive on the right and move to the left lane only for overtaking and always keep a safe distance from the car in front. Be extremely careful when driving in cities, especially in Naples, where the driving of the locals is somewhat “random”.
