Travel to Ischia: Ferries

Ferries, Ischia Porto

Ischia is most easily reached from Naples, which has an international airport (Napoli Capodichino) and is well-served by the Italian railway network. Ferries and hydrofoils run from two ports in Naples - Beverello and Mergellina.

Taking a traghetto - boat - is slower and cheaper than choosing a hydrofoil (aliscafo), which makes the trip in about 45 minutes. Some services, such as the slower car ferries, also call in at the neighbouring island of Procida. Different companies run services, but the information and booking desks are close together so you can arrive and take your pick. Prices vary from approximately 5-12 each way, depending on which service you take. Read more on our Ferries from Naples page.

Ferries also connect Ischia (more frequently in the high summer season) with other destinations in the Bay of Naples, such as Pozzuoli, Capri and Sorrento. Occasional services run further afield - for example, up to the island of Ponza.

A few Ischia ferries run to Forio, or Casamicciola (from Pozzuoli), but most dock at the island's main port, Ischia Porto, a round basin that was once a lake.
