:: How to Get to Ischia

Ischia is an island and is normally accessed via Naples by boat, so you will need to travel to Naples first, then take a boat to Ischia.

Via Airplane
The closest domestic and international airport to Ischia is Capodichino Airport just outside of Naples. If you are flying to Italy from the U.S., it is likely that you will stopover at Malpensa Airport in Milan or Fiumicino Airport in Rome, and then make a connecting flight to Naples. There are direct flights into Naples from Paris, London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Munich and Brussels, in addition to national flights from Rome and Milan.
Via Train
You can reach Naples by train. There are three main train stations in Naples: Central Station (or Napoli Piazza Garibaldi, which is located exactly under the Central Station), Mergellina Station, and Campi Flegrei Station. The train service from Rome is frequent, and the trip takes about two hours.

There is a direct bus connection called Alibus which connects Naples Airport, Central Rail Station, and Molo Beverello harbour, no other stops. Service starts at 6.30 and stops at 23.30, trips each 30 minutes. Special fare 3 Euro.
Regular bus from Airport to Central Rail Station / Piazza Garibaldi, line 3S: 1 Euro. Tickets are valid for 90 minutes and cover all commuter traffic (bus, metro, local trains, trams) in the region.

To go from the Central Rail Station to Mergelina, take Metro line 2 towards Pozzouli.

To go from the Central Rail Station to Pozzouli harbour, take first Metro line 2 to Montesanto (towards Pozzouli). Then in Montesanto, change to local train line "Cumana" direction Pozzouli. The "Cumana" Pozzouli station is near the harbour. The Metro line 2 stop in Pozzouli is far from the harbour.

Taxi service is 24 hours a day.

There are three harbours with boat service between mainland and Ischia Porto: Molo Beverello, Mergellina and Pozzuoli:
