Ferries in Naples

Traveling by ferry from Naples to Amalfi is one of the best ways to get to Italy’s Amalfi Coast.

Ferries between these cities are run by a company called Metro del Mare. They only run services in the summertime, but the 2014 schedule has not been released yet. There are rumors circulating that the company will not operate ferries this year due to financial trouble.

When their services do run, Metro del Mare offers a daily ferry from Naples to Amalfi via Sorrento and Positano from early July to mid-September every year. Boats depart from Molo Beverello port, and the journey takes 1 hour and 55 minutes. There are great views of Capri and the coastal towns along the way.

Ferries on this route only leave Naples once a day, so make sure to time your travel plans accordingly if you want to go by sea. Timetables are updated every year, so check ahead of time to see the most recent departure schedule. Tickets cost 20.00 euros for singles.

If the ferry service from Naples to Positano isn’t running when you are visiting Italy, try taking a ferry from Naples to Capri and then connecting to a ferry from Capri to Amalfi. If that doesn’t work, you can always take a taxi or bus, or hire a car.
