Located in Naples Campi Flegrei region, Agnano is a volcanic crater that has been popular for millennia due to its hot springs. There was once a lake in the crater, though it's now the site of spas and the Agnano hippodrome.
All of these sites are easily visited with cheap car hire in Naples Agnano. The former Agnano Lake has an interesting history, as it appears to have formed during the Middle Ages. It was subsequently drained in the 19th century to reveal rich, arable land and to reduce the habitat of malaria-carrying mosquitoes.
Today the drained crater is a densely forested national park that stands in stark contrast with Naples nearby city centre. The walking paths in the park are a great diversion for visitors with car rental in Naples Agnano who can easily connect from other prominent districts.
Another major attraction for anyone with car hire in Naples Agnano is the Agnano Hippodrome, a prominent horse-racing venue southeast of the crater. With the crater on one side a backing of steep cliffs on the other, the hippodrome is the gateway to more populous parts of the city.
To connect to the city centre with car hire in Naples Agnano take the A56, the most important local highway that passes the historic quarter and heads north to Naples International Airport. After the airport, the A56 gives way to the A1 with access to Rome (2 hours).
