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 considerably 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, however, 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 Ischia), guarantees territorial continuity with nearby Procida throughout the year.

Both ferries and hydrofoils depart from the port of Casamicciola. The former take an average of 70 to 90 minutes to reach Naples; from 60 to 70 minutes, instead, to reach Pozzuoli. The hydrofoils take from 50 to 60 minutes to reach Naples, while there are no hydrofoils connections to Pozzuoli. For both ferries and hydrofoils, any intermediate stop in Procida affects travel times.

At the entrance to the port there are the ticket offices, the taxi station and the bus stop for Forio. For bars, newsstands, restaurants, car and scooter rental and bus stop towards Ischia, just cross the street.

Tickets can be purchased at newsagents, bars and tobacconists. Tickets can almost always be purchased on board. Ask the driver before getting on.

Taxi: the distribution of taxis on the island of Ischia is widespread: from the parking areas near the ports to those in front of the hotels, tourists can rely on a valid public service.

Each municipality on the island of Ischia has its own taxi tariff, so transit from one municipality to another is intended as an extra-urban route.
