The Port of Casamicciola (Ischia)

In importance, the port of Casamicciola Terme comes immediately after that of Ischia . During the winter months there are about ten daily trips to Naples and Pozzuoli , but their number increases significantly during the summer. Furthermore, in the months of June, July and August from the port of Casamicciola it is also possible to reach Ventotene and  Ponza which, on the other hand, are not directly connected in winter (it is necessary to pass through Formia, Terracina and Anzio). Another fundamental aspect, the port of Casamicciola, together with that of Ischia, ensures territorial continuity with the nearby Procida all year round 

Both leave from the port of Casamicciolaferries that hydrofoils . The former take on average 70 to 90 minutes to reach Naples; from 60 to 70 minutes, instead, to reach Pozzuoli. Hydrofoils take 50 to 60 minutes to reach the Neapolitan capital, while there are no hydrofoil connections to Pozzuoli. For both ferries and hydrofoils, any intermediate stop in Procida affects travel times.

Ticket offices, taxi rank and bus stop for Forio are at the port entrance. For bars, newsagents, restaurants, car and scooter rental and bus stop towards Ischia, just cross the street.

What to see near the port of Casamicciola (Ischia)

Those arriving by ferry or hydrofoil on the port of Casamicciola can immediately start their visit . Leaving the port, in fact, you just have to cross to reach Corso Luigi Manzi , the main road of the town. The strong increase in yachting has favored the development of the course which, in addition to being partially pedestrianized, has undergone important redevelopment works that have significantly improved its appearance. Starting from Piazza Marina , the usual meeting place for tourists and residents. Close to the square is the historic Bar Calise , an icon of the tourist fortunes of the spa town and the whole island of Ischia.

Obviously it is not the only bar along the course. Pubs, restaurants, wine bars, pizzerias, clothing and souvenir shops follow one after the other, almost all on the ground floor of beautiful early 1900's art nouveau buildings .

Watch out for the churches: right next to the aforementioned Bar Calise is the small Church of Santa Maria Madre del Buon ConsiglioA little further on, however, a stone's throw from the ruins of Pio Monte della Misericordia, there is the Church of Santa Maria della Pietà . Finally on the Salvatore Girardi promenade, we recommend the Church of San Gabriele , part of the majestic convent of the Passionist Fathers.
