Looking for quality car hire in Naples? With its Renaissance architecture and easy access to the famous Pompeii site, Naples is a place you’ll want to spend time in. There’s no better way to explore everything this diverse city has to offer than with your own set of wheels.
When you land at Naples Capodichino Airport, you’ll find our rental counters in the Arrivals area, so you’ll be on your way in no time. We offer a wide range of vehicles including compact, standard, family-sized, luxury and more. Be sure to check out any extras you may need such as an additional driver, GPS or a baby car seat.
Once we hand over the keys, it’s just a short walk to the car park where you’ll find your hire car ready and waiting. Drive off in your Avis car rental and explore this fascinating city and the wider region in style and comfort.
After picking up your Avis car rental, drive from Capodichino Airport to Naples on the A56 - it’ll only take 25 minutes – and start your sightseeing in the historic city centre. Naples was founded by Greek settlers in 470 BC, and since then has been home to many cultures, reflected in the town’s architecture. You’ll see a host of impressive monuments like the Church of Santa Chiara and the Castel Nuovo. There’s also the Church of San Francesco di Paola, known for its iconic pillars and massive portico.
Visit the National Archaeological Museum, where you can learn about Pompeii and Herculaneum, and head to Sant’Elmo castle for a 360-degree view of the city and the bay. Be sure to visit the Royal Palace, with its Museum of the Historical Apartments that you can tour. And if you want to take in some more culture, get tickets to the opera at San Carlo Theatre.
While you’re here, make sure you try some Neapolitan pizza and follow it up with a sfogliatella for dessert, which has pastry dough on the outside and sweet ricotta cheese inside. Then it’s time to do some shopping on Via San Gregorio Armeno, famous for its craftspeople selling nativity scenes.
Exploring Naples is easy once you have your Avis car hire.
With its ancient ruins and classic coastal towns, the region around Naples has a little something for everybody.
Visiting Pompeii is definitely a must-do while in Italy, and it’s just a 25-minute drive from Naples on the A3. When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, the 12,000 residents of Pompeii had no idea of the devastation that it would wreak. The ensuing volcanic debris preserved the town, so that you get a real glimpse of what life was like during that period. There are even haunting plaster casts of people in their final moments.
Sorrento is an hour’s drive from Naples on the A3 and SS145. Not technically part of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento’s coastline makes for a stunning drive anyway. There are several great gelato shops here, and shopping around the centre of town for souvenirs is a great idea. See the Marina Grande, or spend some time at Correale House and the Correale Palace. The cathedral is another must-see.
Herculaneum is another ancient city devastated by the 79 AD eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Just take the E45 from Naples to reach it. Herculaneum was a favoured resort spot for the wealthy, and touring here will give you some idea of their opulent lifestyle. Here, you must check out the beautifully preserved wall paintings of the Villa Oplontis at Torre Annunziata.
