Getting around in Naples - Napoli

There are several ways to see Naples and the surrounding area. These include by taxi, train/subway, bus, boat (ferry and hydrofoil) and car.

By taxi - Taxis are the quickest way to see Naples, but is also the most expensive. Before getting into a taxi make sure it is licensed. Licensed taxis will have a city crest on the door and a taxi number. Also, make sure it has a meter.

By train/subway - There are four different trains and/or subway services that operate in Naples and the surrounding areas: 

Circumvesuviana - this rail line operates out of the basement of the main train station at Piazza Garibaldi and has different routes that service the local Naples area. One route goes from the train station to Sorrento with several stops in between, including Pompei Scavi and Ercolano. A second route travels around Vesusvis. Other routes go to Acerra and Nola-Baiano. The Circumvesuviana website has more information on timings, routes and cost of tickets.

Cumana - This is the rail line that operates from Montesanto in Naples and follows the coastline for approximately 20 km before ending in Torregaveta (Bacoli). The Cumana runs the urban centres of Montesanto, Fuorigrotta, Bagnoli, Pozzuoli, Arco Felice, Baia, Fusaro before reaching Torregaveta.

Circumflegra - also starts in Montesanto and ends in Torregaveta. However, it runs along the western edge of Naples through the districts Soccavo, Pianurat, Quarto Flegreo, Licola and Cuma. It is also approximately seven kilometers longer than the Cumana. Because the Cumana line and Circumflegra start and end in the same places, one can quickly transfer from one train to the other. Both services are owned and operated by the same company and more information can be found at the S.E.P.S.A website.

By ferry/hydrofoil - There are several ferry/hydrofoil services that connect Naples and local ports/islands. Ferry and hydrofoil services leave from either: Molo, Beverello, Mergellina, or Pozzuoli. Some of them are listed here:
