Naples - Trapani Ferry Operators

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.


Trapani Guide

The Italian port city of Trapani is located in the west of Sicily and is sometimes known as the "City of the Two Seas". It is situated on a strip of land that reaches out to see with two prongs, and is dominated by the Tower of Ligny and by the Lazzaretto. The town was originally named Drepanon and was initially a market outpost of Erice which was later a Phoenician trading port. Following this, it became a Roman province but the most significant impact on the town was made by the three centuries of Arab rule. Around the city there are many sites of interest including the medieval walled hill town of Erice, Marsala, which is famous for its wine, and the ancient Greek site of Selinunte. One of the best places to visit, perhaps for a day or two, is the three island archipelago of the Egadi islands, which lie just off the coast. Two of the islands can be reached from Trapani in only half an hour.
