3. Reach Ischia by Car

Ischia is an island for experienced drivers! In general, we do not recommend to guests, which have no particular dysmicicità driving, to reach the island by car. Our roads are much smaller than those of the cities and during high season very chaotic.
On the other hand, during uncrowded months, arriving by car could be a good idea to explore independently the island.
We remind you that from June 27th to October 31st 2020 the arrival on the island for cars and mopeds registered in Campania is forbidden.
By car, you can choose to embark from the Ports of Naples or Pozzuoli.

 

  • Pozzuoli (recommended option): FROM NORTH Take the A1 highway towards Naples, past the Caserta Sud tollbooth, go ahead for about 12 Km and take the "Tangenziale di Napoli" towards Pozzuoli, and go ahead until the exit for "Arco Felice" and continue to the port of Pozzuoli.
    FROM SOUTH pass the exit for Naples, continue for Rome until the entrance to the ring road and take the "Arco Felice" ring road exit.
  • Naples: FROM NORTH Take the A1 motorway towards Naples, past the tollbooth Caserta Sud, follow the road signs for Naples "port area" and, ahead for the Porto Calata di Massa. FROM SOUTH From the highway, take the "San Giovanni" exit and drive ahead to Zona Portuale.

We highly recommend booking the ferry in advance during the high season (national holidays, August).
