Expedia car hire in Naples comes with No Hidden Fees
Why rent a car in Naples?
So many of Italy’s most beautiful areas lie within a few miles of Naples. Amalfi, Sorrento and Rome are all easy drives, and Mount Vesuvius looms behind it. Then there are the pizzas… Naples is THE capital of pizza in Italy and the world, so get a hire car and some stretchy trousers, because a delicious adventure awaits.
How to get to and around Naples?
Naples International Airport is just on the outskirts of the city, while Rome’s Fiumicino and Ciampino airports are just over two hours in the car, or 130 miles. There are also good train and coach links with many of Italy’s major cities.
What brands are available?
Thrifty, Avis and Enterprise can all provide a hire car in Naples, or try Italian company Sicily By Car. Remember your passport and insurance details and if you are travelling with children, child car seats are best booked in advance. You can also collect a hire car in Naples from a number of city centre collection points.
Must-sees within an easy drive of Naples
About 14 miles southeast of Naples are the eerie ruins of Pompeii. Buried under metres of ash and pumice when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79, this ancient city is an archaeological must-see. From toilets and sewers, to homes and brothels, Pompeii gives you a genuine glimpse back in time. Herculaneum, five miles from Naples in the same direction, was destroyed in the same eruption and is a similarly well-preserved example of an ancient town.
Travel a little further along the coast of the Gulf of Naples and you get to Sorrento. The city stretches out into the sea towards the island of Capri, to which there are regular boat trips. At one hour 15 minutes, or 30 miles, from Naples it is an easy day trip, or take a few days and visit the glamorous neighbouring towns of Positano and Amalfi. This is classic driving country. The roads zigzag across coastal and mountain roads, hairpin bend after hairpin bend. Coaches are common on these roads, so take it slow and let the locals overtake.
In the opposite direction is Rome. Hire a rental car in Naples and drive the two-hour, 140-mile route north to find the Coliseum and the Spanish Steps, or stop for a cappuccino in one of the very many beautiful squares.
Tips and tricks for driving in Naples
Hire cars are not allowed to enter the historic centre of many Italian cities without an official pass. You can buy a pass from most car hire companies, or ask at your hotel. The boundaries of historic centres are usually marked with the letters ZTL.
