Campania Car Rental
Campania, or “Campania Felix” as Pliny the Elder called it, is a region rich in natural, historical and archaeological beauty.
Known mainly for its beaches and enchanting coastline, Campania is not just a seaside destination, but also offers visitors a wide variety of “landscapes”, ranging from hills to mountains, from art cities to archaeological sites.
There are so many things to visit in Campania, and the only way to truly appreciate the richness and variety of this land is by car.
In fact, with a rental car you can move comfortably from one province to another, exploring even the inland areas away from the traditional tourist routes.

What to see in Campania: Naples and Caserta and the archaeological sites of Pompei and Paestum
The first places to visit in Campania Felix are its most important art cities: Naples and Caserta.
In Campania, you can rent a car from Maggiore, which has several offices in both cities.
At our offices, you will find highly specialised staff, always ready to help you choose the right vehicle for your needs, from a fleet of modern, reliable and perfectly sanitised cars.
After renting a car, you can start your tour of the places to visit in the region from the Neapolitan capital. Immerse yourself in the authentic atmosphere of the city by walking along Spaccanapoli and admiring monuments, palazzos and churches of unrivalled beauty such as the Church of Gesù Nuovo, the Monastery of Santa Chiara and the Cappella San Severo, which houses the masterpiece, Veiled Christ by Giuseppe Sammartino.
Between one visit and another, be sure to sample some of the city’s specialities, most notably the Neapolitan pizza, which has been declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
About a half hour’s drive away is Caserta, known for its magnificent Reggia, the largest royal residence in the world by volume.
The Reggia di Caserta, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the San Leucio estate, is truly majestic, and we recommend you visit not only the halls but also its beautiful garden, which extends for 3 km.
Other places not to be missed in Campania are the Archaeological Park of Pompeii, where you can admire the magnificent Amphitheatre built in 80 BC, the Temple of Jupiter, the most important sacred structure in the park, and the Villa del Mistero, decorated with beautiful frescoes and pictorial cycles.
Once back in the car, take the A3 and in about an hour you will reach the Archaeological Park of Paestum and Velia, where you can admire the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Neptune and the Temple of Athena. Be sure to take a tour of the adjacent museum, where numerous finds from the excavations are exhibited, including the Tomb of the Diver.
Campania point of interest: the Amalfi and Sorrento Coasts
By opting to rent a car in Campania, you can easily reach two of its most famous “pearls”: the Amalfi and Sorrento Coasts.
You can drive along the Amalfi coast to admire beautiful villages such as Vietri sul Mare with its splendid ceramics, Atrani, the smallest village in Italy, and Amalfi where lush nature and a rich artistic heritage await you.
Also by car, in about 20 minutes, you can reach Praiano and Conca dei Marini and then Positano, a magical place with its colourful houses perched on the rocks and overlooking the blue sea.
You can also admire other unique places by crossing the Sorrento Coast, a magnificent stretch of coastline overlooking the Gulf of Naples, where you will find some of the region’s most beautiful locations.
In fact, the list of noteworthy towns to visit in Campania include the marvellous Sorrento, beloved by writers such as Goethe and Dickens, the charming Massa Lubrense, where the famous sirens of Ulysses are said to have lived, and the beautiful Sant’Agata dei due Golfi, so called because it lies between the gulfs of Naples and Salerno.
While visiting these beautiful towns, try the lemon delight, the area’s signature dessert, accompanied by a glass of limoncello or nocillo.
Of course, the sights do not end here, because you can drive to Cilento and visit both the coast and hinterland, or you can go to Irpinia and discover its villages and mountains, or head to Sannio where you will be enchanted by the beauty of the Benevento and Sant’Agata dei Goti.
