One of Europe’s oldest cities, explore Naples and beyond with Avis. Purr past glamorous hotels and rococo churches and negotiate its historic centre teeming with shrines and market stalls.
Park up to peruse the National Archaeological Museum, which houses the most impressive Roman finds from Pompeii. Another site well worth your time lies underneath the Cathedral of Naples: the catacombs of San Gennaro, dating back to 200 AD.
Head to upmarket Chiaia for its sleek shops and meander west towards the port of Mergellina. Drive from here along gorgeous Posillipo, a road that sweeps up the headland separating the bays of Naples and Pozzuoli. Gaze across to Mount Vesuvius’ misty peak.
Remember, you don’t have to drive full-circle: make the most of one way car hire across Naples and beyond.
Drive east from Naples to Pompeii, the city buried under volcanic ash in 79AD. Allow a half-day to wander the ghostly Roman streets. Continue to the immeasurably attractive Amalfi Coast where cliffs dotted with sleepy, picturesque towns look out over sea and sky. Be ready for some James Bond-like swerving: 1,000 hairpin bends have been counted along this stretch.
Take a break in pretty cliffside villa clusters like Positano and, further along the coast, Amalfi. The town and commune of Ravello, perched high on the hillside like an eagle’s nest above Amalfi, is arguably the most charming resort on the Neapolitan Riviera.
