Napoli (Naples) is a city in the south of Italy.
North towards Rome A1. South towards Salerno and Reggio Calabria A3
Right behind the central station is a road that leads to the autostrada towards both the north and the south. The best place for hitching in this area is at the gas station Esso.
A much better option 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). 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. There are several petrol stations from where is not really hard to hitchhike but Genevieve and her female friend waited there for more than hour. It is better to go at the end of the road right before the entrance of A1.
Instead of taking the train, take the bus which leaves just behind the Mcdonalds from the main station, the bus will say Caserta for its final destination, cost 3,40€ , leave every hour, and you can get off at Via Largo Rotunda(ask the bus driver as the actual stop name might be a bit different or hard to see) which is just a few minute walk from the petrol station that leads North. Once off the bus walk two blocks back in the direction the bus came from, take a right (west)and you arrive at the petrol station.
