Naples is an excellent base from which to explore the Amalfi Coast and the historical impact of the volcano Mount Vesuvius, which forms the dramatic backdrop to the city. While you don’t need a car to enjoy the historical sights and great dining of Naples itself, you will certainly want a rental car in order to explore the city’s surroundings independently and spontaneously. Here is a guide to navigating the city and finding the cheapest car hire in Naples.
