This website will help you with that but it should be about 8 or more hours.

Venice to Naples is 727 kilometres, almost all of it on Autostrade where the speed limit is 130km/h (approximately 80 mph). Add in rest breaks, meals etc. and it means a very long days driving and probably worth considering a night stop on route unless you are accustomed to driving long distances at high speeds.

Cars in Venice are a nuisance as the whole city is pedestrianised and you will have to leave your car in the public car parks around Piazzale Roma or pick it up there if you are hiring one.

Trains take around six and a half hours or so - check timings on www.trenitalia.it (English language version)
