To Naples by car: beach holiday at the foot of Vesuvius
As the beaches of Naples are crowded during the peak summer season, many travellers drive from Naples to the Sorrento Peninsula. In the comfort of a hire car you easily get to many small bays and the famous long sandy beach of Meta di Sorrento, set in a beautiful landscape. At the foot of Vesuvius you find real Italian flair – olive groves and pine trees, many old villas and castle complexes provide an authentic southern Mediterranean backdrop.
From the car rental office in Naples it’s about a half-hour drive to the beach of Meta di Sorrento. After sunbathing amble through the old town or take the car from TUI Cars on a spin along the panorama road above Sorrento.
The coast road of Amalfi: by car from Naples
Between Naples and Salerno lies one of the most beautiful panoramic roads in Italy. The winding road runs via Sorrento to Vietri sul Mare and offers breath-taking views of the cliffs and the sea. Citrus groves and vineyards alternate with small mountain villages that hang like swallows nests on the steep rocky slopes.
There are many sights to visit and things to do, such as taking a boat trip to the cave of Grotta dello Smeraldo. In Amalfi itself the old town and cathedral are well worth visiting. If you hire a car in Naples, you should visit the ruins of the buried city of Pompeii on your way to Salerno.
