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

Hitchhiking out

North towards Rome E 45 A1

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 perhaps fear of other seemingly dangerous locals. Jason and his friend waited almost two hours for a real ride not asking for money -- It was the first time in a month of hitching the south of Europe had they been asked for currency.


A much better option according to Fedcas 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 [updated at april 2011]). 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.

Another hint: if you're visiting some touristic spots around Naples at the end of your stay (such as Pompei, Vesuvio, Pozzuoli ecc) you can try to ask for a ride directly to the tourists coming back to their car for leaving as all of these spots are very crowd most of the time.

Public Transport

Naples is really walkable. Scour those fantastic narrow streets in the Spanish quarter. There are some metro lines and buses.

Ferrys

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