Ferry information from Naples to Sorrento with NLG:
The home of Limoncello and a great antiques scene, it is cheap and easy to make a day trip by ferry to Sorrento from Naples. Travelling by high-speed hydrofoil, the c.40 kilometre crossing takes 45 minutes and benefits from a regular 5-times-a-day service. Timed around the working day, the first hydrofoil leaves at around 9:00 a.m. followed by one every two hours until 5:00 p.m. Because the hydrofoil is small, allowing it to make light work of the journey, there is no space for vehicles on the boat. But, Sorrento is relatively self-contained and there should not be any need for a car, and if there is, they are easy to hire at the other end. Unlike other routes on the Amalfi Coast, ferries from Naples to Sorrento are rarely overcrowded, so it should be possible to travel in comfort at any time of day.
From Monday through to Sunday, there should be five daily ferries from Naples to Sorrento, with the same timetable every day. All of these trips are made by hydrofoil. Departing from Naples Molo Beverello (the city’s central port), the first boat of the day leaves at 9.00 a.m. and following on from that there are ferries every two hours until the final departure at 5:00 p.m. The ferries to Sorrento are not as crowded as some of the other routes on the Amalfi Coast – such as that to Amalfi itself – so there should not be any problems finding a seat, but for extra security, it is possible to book in advance. Each ferry takes 45 minutes, and prices are the same throughout the day. Because the boats are small, there is an extra fee for passengers carrying luggage.
Departure Port: Naples’ Molo Beverello, the port of departure, is easy to use and well served by public transport. Although passengers are not told which berth their ferry will depart from in advance, there is one central building at the port containing all ticket desks and a large display board letting passengers know where they need to go. The berths are near to one another and never more than a short walk from the terminal. The port is well connected, with a choice of either one 30-minute metro journey from Municipio or a 25-minute bus journey (from the bus stop ‘Napoli’) to get to the central station. It is also easy to get to Naples airport, with one bus that takes 30 minutes and departs every ten minutes from Beverello itself. If passengers are with their cars, there are plenty of parking options in the neighbourhood, with two on the quay.
Arrival Port: The Port of Sorrento is right in the middle of the town and from there it’s easy to access all the major sites. The ancient churches of the town are a short 10 minutes walk away, and the train station is just under 15 minutes (although up a bit of a hill). There is not much in the port itself, but there doesn’t need to be, because on arrival passengers are in the main bit of the town in no time at all.
Passengers board the ferry most frequently from Naples Beverello, which is located around 1.2 miles (2 km) away from the city centre, and they get off the ferry at Port of Sorrento, located 0.7 miles (1.1 km) away from the city centre.
