Naples is the most populated city in southern Italy, and year after year it attracts millions of tourists. In fact, UNESCO declared the city a World Heritage Site, thanks to its rich history that traces back to some of the most important historical moments in human history.
Naples Airport is used by almost anyone who wants to visit southern Italy – with approximately 9 million passengers passing through the airport every year from all over the world. Many people choose to rent a car at the airport, since it's pretty accessible from all over the city thanks to the ‘Capodichino’ exit of the Tangenziale, which is the urban highway (A56), that connects the city of Naples to the rest of Italy.
There are more than 10 car rental agencies that you can choose from at the airport. Among them are those known worldwide, such as AVIS, Budget, Sixt, Alamo and Thrifty. These agencies offer a wide variety of cars – so you can find the one that best suits your needs.
Renting a car in Naples is a great idea, especially if you want to save a bit of money. In Naples, there are several smaller agencies that don’t necessarily offer the variety of cars, but they do offer a much more accessible price than that of international agencies at the airport. It is important that you not only look for the best price, but also the best deal for your money – for instance, you want to make sure insurance is covered, so you don’t have to cash out on getting your own short-term insurance.
Traffic in the different parts of Naples, except in the suburbs or rural areas, is quite uncontrolled. Of course, the locals know how to handle this, but for tourists, it can be a little overwhelming. Don’t let this put you off, however. So long as you stick to the speed limits and pay attention to the roads, you will be okay driving in Naples.
When you’re driving, remain calm and stick to speed limits at all times – drive with confidence, but accept that other drivers will know the roads better than you and might try to encourage you to speed, or even overtake you dangerously. As a general rule, just ignore these people and drive in a way that makes you feel safe and secure.
Some of the best-known agencies in Naples are Enterprise and Hertz. The advantage of renting from these agencies is that they generally let you return the car at the airport, so you can use it until right at the last minute. Apart from that, there are other agencies in Naples that offer a great service. One of them is Morini Car Rentals, located in Via Generale Francesco Pignatelli, which has one of the best online ratings. What makes this agency stand out is the affordable price, the employees, and the different insurances they offer that allow you to travel comfortably and safely throughout Naples.
Another agency that, although small, is chosen by a large number of tourists and locals are Napolirent - Rent Scooter and Car. This agency is particularly great if you want to rent cars and scooters – as they have a selection of classic bikes to choose from.
The San Paolo Stadium (now also called Diego Armando Maradona Stadium) is a place that you must visit, especially if you are a sports fan. In this stadium, the matches of SSC Napoli take place, who are the soccer team that represents Naples in the Italian Soccer League. The stadium also used to be the place where Diego Armando Maradona, the best soccer player in history, played.
Another place you must go to is Centro Storico, known mainly for its churches, such as Gesù Nuovo, which has a stone façade and an opulent Baroque interior, and Santa Chiara, with a cloister full of mosaic columns. The area includes trattorias serving dishes, such as pasta and seafood – or, alternatively, you can choose from many of the different pizzerias in the area.
If you are looking to explore a bit more of Italy, Rome is only 2 hours’ drive from Naples – which is full of Italian culture.
Still not sure where to stay? If you aren’t keen on the nightlife scene, or are looking for more of a relaxing trip, then staying in Chiaia will be a better option for you. This ancient village, that dates back to the 16th century, has now been modernized thanks to the new stores that have set up shop. In fact, it is one of the most luxurious shopping areas in all of Italy.
