Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Naples (Italy), Traffic Around Stadio San Paolo

Heavier than normal traffic in and around the Stadio San Paolo is expected due to the Napoli vs. Besiktas soccer game. Approximately 2,500 Turkish supporters will be in town from today until tomorrow night.

Traffic situation: Congested traffic in and around this area

Type of demonstration: Peaceful

We recommend avoid the demonstration area and exercise caution if walking or driving in.

We remind U.S. citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence. U.S. citizens are therefore urged to avoid the areas of demonstrations if possible, and to exercise caution if within the vicinity of any demonstrations.
