Ferries to Gulf of Napoli

The Gulf of Napoli is among the most historic and romantic getaways in Europe and is located on the south west coast of Italy opening on to the Mediterranean Sea. Within easy access is Naples itself, the ruins of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Sorrento and the islands of Capri and Ischia off the coast, as well as destinations further inland.

Ferries operate out of Naples to a range of destinations including Capri, Sorrento, Palermo in Sicily and the island of Ischia.

There are also sailings to the Aeolian Islands of Lipari, Panarea, Salina, Stromboli, Vulcano, which have crystal-clear waters and stunning scenery and which are ideal for water sports such as snorkelling, scuba diving and sailing. Or head for Cagliari on the island of Sardinia, Catalina on the east coast of Sardinia, the islands of Ustica and Procida and the Aegadian Islands.

From the Gulf of Napoli, many people opt to negotiate their way around the area by car, taking advantage of the good road network available that includes much motorway. But be warned, the roads around the coast that hang vertiginously over the sea, are very narrow, feature many hairpin bends and are not for the faint-hearted. They also get very busy in summer. Driving in Naples itself can also be considered a rite of passage with difficult driving conditions. Away from Naples and the coast though, things are easier. Naples is on the A1 North-south auto route to Rome and Milan and the A3 south to Salerno and Reggio di Calabria.

  • "Easy access to the Amalfi coast"

    I booked tickets for ferries to get from Naples to Positano (changing ferry at Sorrento). I was a little apprehensive after reading bad reviews but had already purchased tickets The tickets were easy to book online. My friend and I had a good experience using this company - the staff were friendly and helpful. We were not aware we had to pay for baggage once we boarded but it was €2 per bag - we didn’t have to pay on the last leg of the trip, we kept our bags with us. I managed to use my email confirmation/tickets to board all but one ferry, where we were told to go to the desk and ask them to print the tickets - they pushed us to the front of the queue. One ferry was delayed by 15 minutes but the ferry times are far apart enough that we still had about 45 mins before boarding our next one. It can be a little confusing knowing which pier to go to - we were told pier 5 but it was actually pier 7. I think things change at the last minute, so I would recommend double checking and keeping your eyes open. All in all, a good and easy experience

  • "Sorrento Ferry "

    The ferry was great. The only problem is that the organisation at the terminal is poor. There is a big departure board showing each departure gate etc, but it never worked, so travellers were left to guess, with no information, and we nearly missed our pre-booked crossing
