Italians are very communicative, even if they are not always good in English. If you want to have a guided tour of the city check www.worldtoursitaly.com, they have English speaking guides

Ciao!

Benvenuto a Napoli.

Naples, like many southern cities and towns of Italy have very few English speakers. You should be okay at supermarkets and certain retail stores and restaurants. But for any bureaucratic issues, police station, hospital, etc. you will need to know Italian.

Best wishes,

But honestly I didn't come across to many English speakers even in restaurants. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/italian-translator-offline-english-dictionary/id1015324056?mt=8
