What to do with Rental Car While in Naples

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be spending 3 weeks in Italy, 8 days of which we will have a rental car. For 3 days, we'll be in the Amalfi Coast area, staying in Ravello and exploring the coast, Pompeii, Paestum and Naples. Our initial plan was this:

Day 1: Pompeii/Paestum
Day 2: Explore the coast
Day 3: Explore Naples than travel on to our accommodations in Chiusi

However, we know we don't want to drive in Naples and have no idea what to do with the rental car while we explore the city if we stick with this plan. We've considered rearranging our plans and taking a train from Salerno into Naples on day 2, even though it means we'll be adding travel time to Day 3 and leaving for Chiusi from father south than we would if we left from Naples. Ideally, though, we'd rather explore Naples than drive onto Chiusi on the 3rd day because it makes more sense from a time and gas stand point.

So, does anyone have any suggestions on what to do with the car if we drive to Naples? Any safe parking lots or nearby places to park the car and take a bus in? Is it just foolish to take a car near Naples at all? My husband is fairly paranoid about vandalism if we take the car near the city. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
