How to reach Procida from Naples airport and Naples train station

Hydrofoils to Procida are operated from Molo Beverello, the main passenger service wharf in the Naples harbor, whose entrance is just opposite Piazza Municipio.

Ferries are operated from Calata Porta di Massa wharf, which can be accessed through two main entrances in via Marina, Varco Pisacane or Varco Immacolatella Vecchia; both can be reached by shuttle bus service from Piazzale Angioino (close to Molo Beverello) or walking either from the train station (about 25 minutes) or from Molo Beverello (10 minutes).

If you have traveled to Naples by train, you can either walk (about 35-40 minutes from the train station to Maschio Angioino and Molo Beverello) or take a taxi to Molo Beverello from the train station (a flat rate of 10.30 euros applies, which you should request on boarding the taxi; however, on a Sunday and in light traffic conditions, going by the meter will probably be less expensive. Please check that the taxi driver turn on the meter when starting the ride). Bus 151 departs every 30 minutes or so from in front of the train station and has a stop in via Acton, opposite the entrance to Molo Beverello. You need to buy your ticket before getting on the bus; tickets can be bought from newsstands and ticket offices within the station. A subway line (line 1) runs from Piazza Garibaldi (just outside the train station) to Università, a short 5-minute walk from the Molo Beverello.

From Piazza Municipio, you need only face the sea to see the entrance to Molo Beverello; on your right you will find the ticket offices of individual companies connecting Naples to the Naples Bay islands. The main companies operating ferries and hydrofoils to Procida are Caremar and SNAV. The schedule can be found at the links below: ferries (traghetto) reach Procida in about 1 hour, hydrofoils (aliscafo) in about 30 minutes. If you opt for the hydrofoil, you can buy your ticket and then access the passenger area from Molo Beverello. If you take the ferry, walk to Porta di Massa and enter the harbor area from the main entrance; then walk to your left (facing the sea) until you reach a large building on the right which gives access to ticket counters and the passenger area. Please note that ferries call at Procida harbor and then proceed to Ischia, the larger island opposite Procida: please make sure you get off the boat at the right island!

Timetables to ferries

Hydrofoils leave from Beverello while ferries and fast-ferries leave from Calata Porta di Massa; a shuttle service connects both quays from 6 a.m. to midnight. Passengers can board cars just with few companies leaving from Calata Porta di Massa quay or from Pozzuoli's Port. Some limitations about cars can exist. More info and booking options at:
