Naples has a major airport in the north-east suburbs of the city. The main train station is just four miles away, giving direct access to the city metro network and trains to Herculaneum and Pompeii as well as Frecciarossa and Frecciabianca high-speed services to other key Italian cities. Meanwhile, passengers travelling to the island of Capri can catch a bus from the airport to the ferry terminal.
Naples International Airport offers free unlimited WiFi, a VIP Lounge and shops selling swimsuits, clothing, leather goods, pasta, olive oil, chocolate, ice cream, pastries, perfume and mozzarella. There's also a wine bar, sushi bar, bakery and several restaurants. The Alibus shuttle bus takes passengers to the Piazza Garibaldi (location of Naples Central Train station) and the Molo Bevellero Maritime Station. Passengers can head to the parking area for buses to Salerno, Amalfi, Sorrento and other local towns. There are ticket vending machines in the terminal.
easyJet puts on flights to Naples from around the UK as well as from Mikonos, Barcelona, Paris and Berlin. Ryanair operates services from Barcelona and Valencia, and it's also possible to travel by Alitalia from Milan and Rome. Scandinavian Airlines, Eurowings and Condor also fly planes to Naples on a regular basis.
Planes fly to Naples not only from London but also Liverpool, Bristol and Edinburgh, adding to the convenience and cutting travel costs. With the likes of Ryanair and easyJet operating services, there's no shortage of affordable flights. Passengers are also able to fly from other Italian cities such a Venice, Treviso, Palermo, Rome and Olbia, making Bologna a handy stop-over when travelling from the north of Italy to the south (or vice versa).
Local taxis work on a system of flat-rate fares and wait outside the arrivals hall of Naples International Airport. There's also a shared taxi stop by the Viale Ruffo di Calabria roundabout. This offers a set route to the port and city centre. Look for the “Taxi collectivo” sign displayed on the windscreen. For further savings, it's also a good idea to invest in a Naples Pass, which grants the cardholder free entry to museums, free public transport and discounts at local shops and restaurants.
