However, boating is not the only resource. In recent years, another very promising one has been added both from an economic and image return point of view.
The reference is to fast maritime connections to/from the Aeolian Islands. The service, which operates during the summer period (roughly from the end of June to the end of August), allows you to reach Lipari, Panarea, Salina, Vulcano and Stromboli with all the comforts.
In addition to the quality of the services offered by the Alicost company, the advantage for users lies above all in the shorter travel time which ranges from two to just over three hours at the most.
The nearest airport is Salerno which is approx. 120 Km from Sapri. Once there, the train connections from Salerno, Pontecagnano or Battipaglia lead directly to Sapri.
Alternatively, there is the Capodichino Airport in Naples connected to the Napoli Centrale railway station via the Alibus, ANM shuttle service. Once in the station continue towards Sapri by train.
The Sapri railway station is about 2 kilometers from the port of the same name.
A public parking area is available near the port.
Near the port of Sapri there are various commercial activities, especially in the catering sector. There are also boat rental and storage activities.
Sapri is the southernmost municipality of Salerno located on the border with Basilicata. The territory is not very large and therefore lends itself well to a one-day visit as well as a quick touch-and-go while waiting for the hydrofoil to the Aeolian Islands (or to return from the Aeolian Islands).
Among the various things to see we highlight three above all the others: the obelisk in memory of the Risorgimento hero Carlo Pisacane; the statue dedicated to the Gleaner of Sapri, a character written from the poet Luigi Mercantini, also the protagonist of the tragic anti-Bourbon expedition led by Pisacane; finally, the "Apprezzami l'Asino" path, also suitable for inexperienced walkers. The path starts right from the port of Sapri and ends at the Canale di Mezzanotte.
