Naples is the most important city in the southern part of Italy and the third after Milan and Rome. Capital of the region of Campania and of the province of Naples, it's the 9th-most populous urban area in the European Union with a population of about 4 million people. The city is known for its rich history, art, culture, architecture, music and gastronomy in fact Naples is the Italian city with the highest number of accredited stars from the Michelin Guide. It is located halfway between two volcanic areas, the volcano Mount Vesuvius and the Phlegraean Fields, sitting on the coast by the Gulf of Naples. Also from Naples it's easy to reach towns like Pompeii, Hercolaneum, Sorrento, Amalfi, etc.

Founded in the 8th century BC,as a Greek colony, under the name of Parthenope, and later Neápolis (New City), Naples is one of the oldest cities in the world, and it held an important role in Magna Graecia; the Greek culture of Naples will be essential for the Roman society. When the city became part of the Roman Republic in the central province of the Empire, was a major cultural center. The city has seen a multitude of civilizations come and go, each leaving their mark: now the historic city centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The historic city centre of Naples is the largest in Europe! (1,700 hectares).


The "Università della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli" is a young University, founded in the 1992, situated in the historic center of Naples. We have a large number of hospitals all over the city:

Primo Policlinico Piazza Miraglia

Secondo Policlinico Via S.Pansini, 5

Azienda Ospedaliera Monaldi V. L.bianchi, 1

The most important and used for our clerkship is the "PRIMO POLICLINICO", situated nearby the hostel and our University, still in the historic center. Founded in the first years of the XX Century, it's an historical hospital of the city but it still is a cutting-edge hospital, with a lot of available departments and art facilities.

The other hospital that we usually use "SECONDO POLICLINICO" situated at the "Linea 1" metro exit "POLICLINICO" (about 15 minutes from the hostel and the metro exit "MUSEO") that was built in the 70s and offers a huge hospital that extends for about 440.000 m²!

In the "Università della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli" are available the:
  •  Department of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Pathology
  • Department of Experimental Medicine

In each department the approach is allowed to various laboratories , according to the needs of the incoming student and the availability of teachers who work in those laboratories.
Please contact the LORE for further information about our SCORE Projects.


One meal per working day is granted by Pocket Money, it'll be up to the student to use this money to get food.

The amount of money is calculated per each working day (Monday to Friday) and weekends are not counted.


The lodging changes every month but generally the SISM of Napoli Vanvitelli choose some Apartments located near the university or near a subway station which isn’t far from the university.


There'll be a single apartment shared with all the incomings of the month (usually 4)

The Apartment are all located in the City Center, in order to guarantee a compromise with social life and the clerkship.



Naples has an extensive public transport network, including trams, metro, buses, funiculars and trolleybuses, most of which are operated by the municipally owned company Azienda Napoletana Mobilità (ANM).  The best way to move in the city is the Naples Metro, an underground rapid transit railway system which integrates both surface railway lines and the city's metro stations, many of which are noted for their decorative architecture and public art. Suburban rail services are provided by

The city's main railway station is Napoli Centrale, which is located in Piazza Garibaldi; our University is located near the "Napoli Piazza Cavour" station (served by Trenitalia, Linea 2) or "Museo" station (served by Metronapoli, Linea 1) . Since 2007, Naples has been connected to Rome by a high-speed railway run by High Speed Trains, with trains running at almost 300 km/h (186 mph), reducing the journey time to under an hour; Trenitalia and Italo (NTV) use these trains to link Naples with other city around Italy such as Rome, Florence, Milan, Turin in a few hours.

Roman Ruins such as Pompeii (City of Pompei), Herculaneum (City of Ercolano) and Oplontis (City of Torre Annunziata) and the Costiera Amalfitana/Sorrento are easily reachable by the Circumvesuviana. the cheapest and easiest way to reach those cities.

The Naples International Airport is located in the suburb of San Pietro a Patierno. It is the largest airport in Southern Italy, with around 140 national and international flights arriving or departing daily. From the Airport is possible to reach the city center with a Cab (they're pretty cheap) or also the Bus Service, which will be even cheaper and guarantees an extended time of service (Alibus).


It's organized month by month by our staff. We would like to Remember that we're med students like you and in the months with exams it's really hard to organise a daily social program/trips. In the months when there are incomings in other nearby LCs (Napoli Federico II and Salerno) we try to organise social activities with them, kind of a regional social program. A national program, here in Italy, is going to be activated in the future!


Each incoming student is allocated to two contact people selected by the SISM of Napoli Vanvitelli; those are responsible to show him the city, to bring him to the department assigned, and are responsible to organise events and recreational activities with other incomings (social program). 

Unfortunately since the majority of the students of our University aren't from Naples (they're students away from home) we cannot guarantee the pickup at the airport and the way back from the apartment to the airport.



National Archaeological Museum of Naples

One of the world's best collections of Greek and Roman antiquities can be found in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples, or Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli. Many of the artifacts come from the nearby excavations at Pompeii and Herculaneum, well-preserved sites that were buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. There's an impressive display of mosaics and frescoes including an exhibit of erotic art from Pompeii. There's also an interesting section on prehistory and a huge display of coins.

The Museum and National Galleries of Capodimonte, Museo e le Gallerie Nazionali di Capodimonte, houses one of Italy's richest museums with a large picture gallery with medieval through contemporary artworks.
