Buses and trams in Naples

To begin with, in Naples it would be best to live in the center. For example, in the Central Station area and avoid the outskirts. I can recommend good hotels in the heart of Naples. The 4-star Ramada Naples chain hotel. The 4-star Starhotels Terminus.

The advantage of living in the center of Naples. That you do not have to use the local buses. Tourists are fond of bred. For example, it can happen as follows: tickets for city routes not sold on the bus. But you will still be asked for a ticket upon entering the bus. And, if for some reason you do not have it. They will immediately demand a fine of 41 Euros from you. And threaten with the police. Add to this the fact that the traffic in Naples is quite busy and the buses are often crowded. Not to mention, they often don’t have air conditioning.

The time until the next bus displayed on electronic boards located. At bus stops and in the metro. Bus tickets validated in special machines. Located directly on the bus. The bus entered through the front or back door, and the exit through the central doors. To stop the bus at a stop on demand, press the red button.

The E1 bus route is The most suitable for traveling in the historic center of Naples. This bus departs from Piazza Gesù Nuovo and runs through the city center.

Naples is one of the largest transport hubs in southern Italy. From Naples, you can go directly by train to. Rome, Bari, Salerno, Pompeii and other cities. The high-speed train journey. From Naples to Rome will take just over 1 hour. And the journey to Salerno will take about 40 minutes.

The cost of a train ticket in Italy much depends on the class of the train. High-speed or regional. For example. The cost of a ticket for the high-speed train Frecciarossa on the Naples – Salerno route is €15.

Ferries to the islands of Capri and Ischia

Ferries leave for Capri and Ischia from the port of Naples. There are two ferry boarding points differentiate by the speed of the ships. Slow ferries leave from Calata Porta di Massa. While Molo Beverello offers fast hydrofoils and cruise ships. However, don’t worry, these two places are not so far apart. Within 1 km and there is a shuttle bus between them.

Please note that if you are traveling in Italy. With a car rented in another country. Then you can take the car with you. To the islands only between November and April. The rest of the time. The entry of non-local vehicles on the island prohibited.

Ferry tickets can purchase. At the ticket office before departure or online. You can choose between a speedboat hydrofoil and a slower boat. Keep in mind that faster boats are rocking a lot in bad weather. And you can easy get rocked. Therefore, if you have a weak vestibular apparatus. I recommend taking a pill before traveling.
