The Port of Naples

The port of Naples is the most important maritime hub in Campania and one of the most important in the Mediterranean. Every year millions of travelers embark for Ischia, Procida, Capri and Sorrento, without forgetting the connections with the major islands (Sicily and Sardinia) and the constantly increasing cruise traffic.

During the winter months, daily connections with the island of Ischia are just over 30, but their number increases during the tourist season (from Easter to October). The same goes for Procida and Capri: during the winter months there are about 20 daily trips, only to increase progressively as the high season approaches. The number of trips to Sorrento is lower because the town is also easily accessible by land by car, scooter, bus and with the Circumvesuviana metropolitan service.
