MWA supports all NATO members assigned to JFCNP; there is a Community Centre with duty free shops that sell Audio/Visual equipment, perfumes and sports goods and a Food and Beverage store for grocery items. In the summer, the JFCNP swimming pool is opened and many activities are organized all year round.
a. Shopping Facilities
The main shopping facility is located in the Community Centre, also known as the "International Store”. You can also find the Navy EX located on the ground floor of the main building, behind the NSE entrance.
b. Dining Facilities
On post you may eat your meals in several locations:
- International Mess: Community Centre

It is preferable to have an Italian bank account for income purposes, to cash a check in Euro currency, to pay your phone bills and other utilities bills and for the automatic payment of highway tolls (Telepass). Most bills can be paid at a Post Office as well. Banco di Napoli and the Italian Post Office are located in the Community Centre.
d. Postal Services
The collection of official mail is a function carried out by the Central Registry (Mail Distribution Section). Any correspondence that does not pertain solely to the business of NATO/JFC Naples/NCSA is considered unofficial mail. All military and civilian personnel who want to receive their personal mail (i.e. telephone, electricity, and water bill) at JFC Naples may do so through their National Support Elements. Please follow the example below.
Allied Joint Force Command Naples
U.K. National Support Element
CO: NAME (without rank)
Via Madonna del Pantano
80014 GIUGLIANO IN CAMPANIA (Lago Patria)
The JFC Naples compound does not have any military housing facility within the base. Therefore, you will have to rent a house/apartment. You can receive assistance at the Family Centre located in the Community Centre. For more details on Family Centre, please go to: www.mwanaples.org/familycentre.html
There are no schools on the Lago Patria Base. MWA has agreements for discounts to JFCN NATO members for the International School and Anglo-Italian School in Bagnoli and the Greengarden and the Monticelli Inst in Lago Patria. For more information please contact MWA directly.
JFC Naples library is located in the Community Centre, Level 2. NATO ID Card Holders can borrow books for free. DVD movies may also be borrowed by paying a one-time fee of €10. You can also use the internet points.
h. Fitness Center Membership and Rules
Blue, Red and Green NATO ID card holders may use the Gym free of charge. Medical certificates do not have to be provided by military personnel since they have yearly physicals, but civilian employees and all NATO dependents must provide a medical certificate from their physician, stating that they are fit for athletic and non competitive sports. This certificate will be valid one year only. This requirement also regards minors participating in the previously mentioned sports. There are some additional rules to follow in the gym: you must bring your own towel and you can enter the sport zone only with your gym shoes. Military boots are not allowed inside the gym. For a better usage of the technical equipment, feel free to ask the instructors. They are fully trained and specialized and ready to help. There is an approved regulation to read and sign before joining the Fitness Center. There is also a policy for minors with waivers to be signed before allowing access.
