Tips & Information for Alilauro

Latest offers for Alilauro


Alilauro is a long-standing Italian ferry company based in the Gulf of Napoli, offering routes between Naples, the Sorrento Peninsula, the Aeolian archipelago and the beautiful islands of Capri and Ischia in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

In 1944, Agostino Lauro sailed from Ischia to Capri in his vessel named ‘Freccia del Golfo’, who then established a tourist route between the two stunning islands. Twenty-two years later, he expanded his fleet by purchasing three small hydrofoils and, today, Alilauro boasts over thirty ferries.

Now run by Agostino’s son, Salvatore, Alilauro has since become a holding company with over five hundred employees and associates, carrying over three million passengers each year.

Their fleet comprises large catamarans, monohulls and modern hydrofoils, which are for foot passengers only, with free Wi-Fi available aboard ‘Celestina Lauro’. Every ferry comes with large seating areas, too, allowing you to sail in both comfort and style throughout one of Italy’s most picturesque regions.

Alilauro Customer Reviews

  • "Water ride"

    Ferry was on time, slight mix up in dock number but was not a problem. Ride was smooth and quick, fastest way to get from Sorrento to Naples!

  • "Easy and effective experience "

    It was easy to board the ferry and find out information from the help desk. We moved our ferry ticket forward to get an earlier ferry for a charge of €3 each. When I booked I checked the part that asked if I had luggage so I assumed I had paid for it but upon boarding was asked for an additional €2.10 to pay for my luggage, not a large amount but I held up the line sorting this out. Beautiful way to travel to Sorrento. On board drinks and snacks available although I didn’t use. Would recommend and use again.

  • "Here's one you won't publish"

    I mistakenly bought reservations from your company for two crossings of the Bay of Naples, one Naples to Sorrento on Sunday 13th, October and the return crossing today, October 16th. I probably didn't notice you weren't the ferry owners but buying through your company means queuing at the terminal to have printed tickets the company requires. Fortunately, I had your reminder SMS but the tellers were very skeptical that I'd paid for the crossing. This morning was even more difficult and I nearly lost the crossing and that would have marooned in Sorrento, missing my flight home. The hydrofoils AliLauro use are efficient and comfortable for their purpose but I urge users to find AliLauro's own website before booking with the wrong company. I've had to take taxis from half way up a mountain twice each way in four days to beg for tickets I thought I had already purchased. If I was claiming on you, it would be for a token £100, including the refunds for both tickets for two people. As the title implies, you won't publish this review but there doesn't seem to display a complaints e-mail address to which I could write. Something else needs fixing.

  • "Speedy Crossing"

    Recommend this if making the trip to Ischia from Naples. The boats are clean & the crossing is less than an hour on the hydrofoil
