'''Napoli''' is a city in the south of [[Italy]]. It has little tourism compared to many other great cities in Italia and so it becomes a wild cesspool of treasures and crazy locals. Don't drink the barrel wine, it tastes like vinegar.

Right behind the central station is a road that leads to the autostrada towards the north. Hitching in this kind of area is really quite difficult because of its central location and the perhaps fear of other seemingly dangerous locals.

It was the first time in a month of hitching the south of europe had they been asked for currency.

Napoli (Naples) is a city in the south of Italy.

Hitchhiking out

North towards Rome E 45 A1. South towards Salerno and Reggio Calabria E 45 A3

Right behind the central station is a road that leads to the autostrada towards both the north and the south. The best place for hitching in this area is at the gas station Esso.


A much better option is catching a train to Caserta (3,40€ and 00:40 min). The station it's just in front of the Reggia di Caserta (which it's worth having a look btw, and the gardens are free). From there you can either ask if there is any big parking lot around (there would probably be lots of tourists leaving in the afternoon so you could ask for a ride directly) or have a 2 Km walk East to the A1 ramp. There are several petrol stations from where is not really hard to hitchhike but Genevieve and her female friend waited there for more than hour. It is better to go at the end of the road right before the entrance of A1.


Instead of taking the train, take the bus which leaves just behind the Mcdonalds from the main station, the bus will say Caserta for its final destination, cost 3,40€ , leave every hour, and you can get off at Via Largo Rotunda(ask the bus driver as the actual stop name might be a bit different or hard to see) which is just a few minute walk from the petrol station that leads North. Once off the bus walk two blocks back in the direction the bus came from, take a right (west)and you arrive at the petrol station.

Ferrys

There are conenctions to Corse, Sardegna and Sicilia from Napoli.
