Under $100 / Europe

In a small corner of southern Italy, Naples sits along the Gulf of Naples, which feeds out into the Tyrrhenian Sea. The city boasts incredible views of the shore, Mount Vesuvius and a booming city within. Known for its pizza, art and architecture, a traveler looking for a lot for a little can find it in Naples.

 

Mount Vesuvius is actually still active and was famously the volcano that destroyed nearby Roman town Pompeii. While the ruins may be ancient history, they are still on display for travelers and historians, preserved in perfect condition on Pompeii — a short bus ride from Naples. You can get your steps in hiking the trails along the volcano before heading back to the city for a much-earned pizza and Aperol spritz.

Explore the city on your own, stopping in the many open-air cafés and markets as you see them. Shop around and keep your budget in mind. Some shops can still haggle, while others are more established. Be choosey in your purchases and if you’re wavering on a few things, make a point to go back on your last day and see if it still catches your eye.

 

Keep an eye out for the city’s three castles, incredible royal palace and more cathedrals and churches than you will have time to visit. Pick and choose which you would like to tour if you want to save your pennies for later and continue with your day in the city.

 

While the entire city is pretty pedestrian-friendly, the Lungomare is basically made for explorers on foot. The two-mile promenade lines the water, boasting unbeatable views, along with plenty of attractions, restaurants and seaside fun.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
