1. The one YOU want to stay in! I personally like to be near where the Alibus drops off, which is now Stazione Marittima (Molo Beverello) rather than Municipio, and I like the Renaissance Mediterraneo (http://www.mediterraneonapoli.com/en/) for its rooftop restaurant; YOU might want to stay elsewhere!.

2. Can't tell what would be "worth it" for you, but of course you don't have to stay overnight at Capri or Positano. However, these are rather long day trips from Naples: staying overnight in Sorrento could facilitate both. At all events, look at the timetable for the last ferry back to Naples if visiting from there.

3. The last Alibus departure from the airport is at 23:40 (www.anm.it/index.php…) so if you are landing at 23:00 hrs you may need to take a taxi - which I wouldn't pre-book, myself. Depending on which hotel you choose, you can also book a private transfer through them, e.g. with the Mediterraneo it costs €40 (mediterraneonapoli.com/en/…).

4. I didn't find Naples any worse than, say, London or Paris so it all depends on what you are used to.

Whatever you do look after your wallet and camera etc we had ours stolen from rucksack yesterday. Avoid markets there are pickpockets and thieves. Wear a rucksack or something on your front and try to lock zips if you can.

Thieves/pickpockets can't get your stuff if is safely tucked away - I never have had anything stolen in Naples or anywhere else -

And, OP: if don't want to avoid the markets - don't, they are pretty amazing. Just keep your personal items safely put away where they can't be reached. Be vigilant, of course, as you would anywhere in the world - but, don't be paranoid

Taxis into town from the airport have a fixed fare if you choose it. Depending on exactly where your hotel is the fare will be between €18 - €25.
