Getting to and around Naples | You’ve arrived, now what?
Chris and I have been to Naples a few times and we’ve always loved this city. Its got great places to stay, great food and drink, great trips out of the city and a history that is captivating and keeps you wanting more. Oh and the public transport is fantastic.
Getting from the airport to the city?
You’ve arrived at the airport, eager to get into the city. If you’ve not got mountains of luggage or are with a larger group who can split the cost of private transfer then the alibus is your best bet.
How much does it cost?
You can pay on the bus and its not too costly. €6 the last time we were there and it whisks you right into the centre of Naples. Its route also takes you to the port if that’s what you need.
Come out of the airport and you’ll see the bus shelters up to the right and the Alibus terminus is clearly signposted
It takes about 20 – 30 mins to reach the centre of Naples depending on traffic of course.
