Im 18, not travelled much. went to florida with family when i was 10, sorrento (italy) with school when i was 13 and last october went to naples alone.
i really enjoyed naples and i want to go back again, only last time i realised that, as much as i loved it, what would have made it perfect would have been someone to share the experiance with.
ive managed to convince a couple of mates to come with me - but i seem to be havign some trouble finding somewhere to stay.
we're looking for a self catering apartment/villa - within a students budget - id say maybe £500 - £600 pnd per week (but not per person)
also, i dont like to get lost and would prefer it be in the actual naples area, to give a better idea, within walking distance of VIA TOLEDO
does anyone have any recomendations?
I think Naples would be a cool place to go with your friends, and I join your idea to rent an apartment as it will be much cheper than living in a hotel for a week in a place like Naples As far as I have been investigating, this site - REMOVED- offers self catering in Naples and it may be suitable for your budget.

Why not stay in hostels. Naples has one of the world's best (Hostel of the Sun) which is only a few blocks away from the train station and it really does live up to it's hype unlike some of the others on the "Best" list. You can rent out a 4-bed room for the week.
When I was in Naples I did not stay in Naples proper, but on a camping site near Pompeii. At 5 EUR per night it was the cheapest place to stay I ever came across in Europe. They had a rental appartment available too. Name was Camping Spartakus Pompeii.
Man, if you stay around Via Toledo - particularly near Spaccanapoli - you will get lost! It's all part of the fun. And you're never more than six feet away from a pizza.
When I was last there I arranged self-catering accommodation through a language school in Naples.
