  • "Naples to Ischia"

    Cheapest option available but for such a short journey (1.5 hours) perfectly comfortable and basic refreshments as per an Italian cafe. What more would you want.

  • "Holiday to ischea"

    We recently travelled to ischea for a 10 night stay and we booked our ferry tickets from naples to ischea port with medmar ferries through direct ferries. The booking process online was quick easy and straightforward. We arrived at the port early to collect our tickets and had them within 10 minutes but I'd advise to go early as the queues later were long. Ferry was on time and we arrived on the island on schedule. I was worried it would be chaotic as I'd never been to italy and had reservations but the whole process from beginning to end was fantastic we boarded quickly there was plenty of room for everyone and an inside cafe for refreshments. The whole experience was fabulous and I cant wait to do it all again hopefully later this year. Thankyou direct ferries and medmar for making it so easy to get to that beautiful island . It was part of what was an amazing holiday .
