Naples to Sorrento Ferry

The Naples Sorrento ferry route connects Italy with Italy and is available to book throughout the whole year. Alilauro are the only ferry company operating this service from Naples to Sorrento right now, providing 2 sailings each week. As this is only a short journey, it usually takes 45 minutes for Alilauro to sail the 22 nautical miles (42km) between the Naples port and the Sorrento port. We recommend booking early in order to secure the best price as this route is very popular.

The Naples ferry port, otherwise known as Molo Beverello, is situated at the port of Naples and is easily accessible by taxi and public transport. The R2 bus departing from the Piazza Garibaldi drops passengers right outside the port and takes approximately 10 minutes. Alternatively, the main taxi rank in Naples can be found outside of Napoli Centrale. These operate on a consistent basis so you should have no trouble finding one available.

Please note before booking that Alilauro only allow foot passengers onboard their ferry service from Naples to Sorrento. If you are planning to travel by car, you can drive there in 1 hour and 10 minutes via the A3.

Naples Sorrento Ferry reviews

  • "Ferry Naples - Sorrento - Capri and return"

    Perhaps the ongoing departure details at Napoli could have been a little clearer and more precise. But we got to where we wanted to get too ....

  • "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.

  • "Great experience "

    Really great experience booking and using this Ferry service. Used it to go to Sorrento from Naples for the day with my mom and aunt. We took the first one in the morning and returned on the last one in the evening. We had an amazing day exploring Sorrento. There was a change to the dock last minute for the ferry back but staff came out and walked around to make sure everyone knew to go to the other end. I was very impressed with their service.

Naples Guide

The Italian city of Naples, or Napoli as it is also called, is located in the Campania region of the country and lies on the Gulf of Naples, on southern Italy's west coast. The city is located in an enviable position between two volcanic areas, Mount Vesuvius and the Campi Flegrei. The Roman ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae, which were destroyed the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, are located close to the city as is the city of Sorrento and the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Also located close to Naples are the former parts of the Roman naval facility of Portus Julius, namely the port towns of Pozzuoli and Baia which are both to the north of Naples. The city is adorned with medieval, Baroque and Renaissance churches, castles and palaces and has long been an important centre for the arts and architecture. In the 18th century, Naples went through a period of neoclassicism, following the discovery of the remarkably intact Roman ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii.

The port of Naples is home to several ferry, hydrofoil and SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) catamaran services, linking numerous locations in both the Neapolitan province, including Capri, Ischia and Sorrento, and the Salernitan province, including Salerno, Positano and Amalfi. Ferry services also operate to Sicily, Sardinia, Ponza and the Aeolian Islands.

Sorrento Guide

The Italian town of Sorrento is a very popular resort town and occupies a perfect coastal location. It is a sophisticated town and is reflected in the most of what the town has to offer including the goods sold in the local gift shops, which tend to be of a high quality. A popular attraction in the town is the Cathedral which has a prominent position in the town's skyline and is located along the Corsa Italia. Other popular attractions include the 15th century Sedil Dominova, the Villa Comunale's Chiesa de San Francesco, with its lovely 14th century cloisters, and the Basilica de San Antonino that is located on the Piazza San Antonio. Alternatively, visitors should pay a visit to the Piazza della Vittoria, which is close to the Marina Grande and whilst the views of Sorrento's bay front here may not quite rival those from the Villa Comunale, they are still rather special and well worth savouring.

From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Capri, Naples and to Castellammare di Stabia.
