Pompei is a city just south of Naples that has captured the imagination of tourists, literature, and film, as a community frozen in time by the lavas of Mount Vesuvius. Inevitably Ancient Pompei and Mount Vesuvius are the major attractions here, but sights like the Shrine of Our Lady certainly aren't overshadowed. There's something for everyone in this area of southern Italy, with beaches, shops, dramatic landscapes and one of the most captivating examples of ancient history to be found anywhere in the world.
If you take up car hire in Pompei you're well-advised to also visit nearby Naples. Hiring a car in Pompei is available from the town itself and the Naples airports.
Visitors to Pompei will naturally head to the petrified ruins of the city; the House of Mysteries and the temples to the gods inspire a real sense of time-defying awe. Alternatively, the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary is always popular, and if you're hiring a car, a trip up Mount Vesuvius is recommended to gain the full picture. Rent a car in Pompei and head south on the SS366 to find some extraordinary geographical beauty in the Path of the Gods; Naples is just 25km on the A3 where you could try the renowned Museo Cappella Sansevero; Sorrento and the Marina di Puolo Beach is 30km on the SS145.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
