To reach the island of Ischia you have to take a hydrofoil or ferry from the ports of Naples, Pozzuoli, Procida and, only in the summer, Salerno, Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Capri and Formia (in these cases it is necessary to inquire beforehand on races). The media call at the ports of Ischia, Casamicciola Terme (ferries and hydrofoils) and Forio (only hydrofoils).
The means departing from the Port of Naples leave from Mergellina, Molo Beverello and Calata Porta di Massa. From Mergellina and Beverello only hydrofoils. From Porta di Massa only ferries. A free shuttle freight village (in service until the last link to Ischia) connects Molo Porta di Massa and vice versa.
The hydrofoil is a fast means that only passengers embark. It takes about 50 minutes to reach Ischia and Casamicciola Terme; About 1 hour to reach Forio. Hydrofoils Caremar and SNAV carry out flights to Procida before continuing to Ischia and Casamicciola. The dell’Alilauro hydrofoils do not make stopovers and dock at Ischia and Forio. To reach the Hotel Internazionale Ischia must disembark at Ischia Porto.
The ferry allows the boarding of passengers, cars and trucks. With the Procida flights takes about 90 minutes to reach the ports of Ischia and Casamicciola. No, about 70 minutes.
