The sectors that most drive the development of the port of Castellamare di Stabia are shipbuilding and pleasure boating.
The prestige of the Stabiese shipbuilding industry is due to the historical presence of Fincantieri, a company of the Italian State. The nautical sector, on the other hand, is growing thanks to private investments and the growing specialization in megayacht and gigayacht services.
The presence of luxury boats in the port of Castellamare is due to the proximity to the Sorrento coast and the archaeological sites of Pompei (6 km) and Herculaneum (20 km). So tourism is the sector around which the city and its port can grow further.
From the redevelopment of the waterfront to the increase in passenger traffic, Castellamare di Stabia can become an even more important port in Campania and Southern Italy.
In short, the line is drawn and the fruits are seen during the tourist season with the fast connections that depart every day from the Marinella pier for Sorrento and Capri.

Castellamare's port has always drived city development. Suffice it to say that the first housing unit developed right around the port area. Therefore in the area there are shops, kiosks, bars, restaurants, pizzerias, food, pharmacy and all other useful services for those who have to leave or have just arrived.
Almost all the main points of interest in Castellamare di Stabia are not far from the port. We suggest the Villa Comunale, the subject of important redevelopment works which have improved its appearance and use; the Cathedral, dedicated to San Catello (patron saint of the city); and Piazza Crostoforo Colombo, more commonly known as "Piazza Orologio". In short, a fair number of attractions to which must be added a large number of shops, bars, restaurants and outdoor kiosks.
Special mention for the Faito cableway, Villa Arianna and Villa San Marco. The first, during the tourist season (from April to October), goes up and down from the Castellamare railway station and from the Piazzale dei Capi di Monte Faito (the service is managed by the EAV company). Villa Arianna and Villa San Marco are two Roman villas, rich in frescoes and mosaics, and represent a valid alternative to the more popular Pompeii and Herculaneum.
