Naples or Napoli as it is locally known is the capital city in the Campania region of Italy. Naples is the home of pizza as we know it and it is also really famous for its coffee, its locally produced mozzarella (and buffalo mozzarella) which is used in the Neapolitan pizzas, and it is also a gourmands dream for its pasticceria (pastry shops). The city itself has an old town centre with small winding streets, old buildings and churches and many museums. The city is on the coast, and down by the coast is a haven for restaurants, bars and nightlife in general. Naples also provides easy access to the historic sites not far from here, but also to go further afield to Capri, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast.

First and most important thing to do in Naples is to eat a pizza! Don’t go up market, you want the real thing, so find a pizza place that has a big queue and that says ‘vera pizza napoletana’ (real Neapolitan pizza) over the door. The queue will move quickly, and it will be worth it, it will be mouthwateringly good. Once you are stuffed with the best pizza you will have ever eaten, take a stroll around the old town (bring a map) and visit the National Archaeological Museum, the Veiled Christ at Capella Sansevero, tour the Naples underground. When you have enough of the old stuff, you could to the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Donna Regina. And for fun at night, get yourself to the coast. Stroll the promenade, sip a vino and if you are there in summer that means only one thing in Naples - the sound of the sea and top DJs in clubs along the coast.
A day trip out to Pompeii and Vesuvius is perfect in your hire car, it’s not far and you can experience the history of the place up close and personal. A very popular day trip is from Naples to Capri – get on the road as early as you can, as it attracts thousands of day trippers, so if you can spare a few days, then make you trip a little longer and spend more time enjoying the azure sky, lemon groves and glistening ocean. Nearby Sorrento is a little quieter and is a welcome break from the hustle of Naples, it is also a place of outstanding beauty and a mythical land where Odysseus was enchanted by mermaids! And to drive your hire car on one of the one of the most beautiful and dramatic stretches of coastline in the world, take the road to Amalfi, and yes there will be traffic, but don’t let it bother you, use the time to appreciate the beauty around you.
