Naples ferry dock (Calata Porta di Massa)
Naples ferry terminal located in Porto di Massa (map), between cruise and cargo port. Car ferries to Ischia leave from here. According to local terminology, these vessels are called "La Nave" (ship), unlike "Scaf" (Aliscaf), high-speed boats, based on the berths of Beverello on the other side of the Sea station.
Car entrance to this port is to the left of the Sea station (map), passing a couple of times along the port, I tired to answer the questions of drivers who unsuccessfully sought the gate. You can also get here through the gates of the cargo port, which rests via Duomo (map). To these gates from Garibaldi station about a mile, I'm not straining reached on foot on foot in 20 minutes. Parking-storage (pictured) is located next to the pier.
The lobby of the ferry terminal is decorated in a modern spirit, but I do not know how convenient it is to sit on these designer benches. If you go to the hall from the pier, ticket offices will be on the right. In early April, the hall was empty, but in the season would probably be better to come in advance.
From the pier Calata Porta di Massa are two companies-Medmar and Caremar. Their ferries carry out flights to Ischia, Procida, Capri.
You can see the schedule here: Caremar, Medmar. On the websites of companies you can buy tickets in advance, but it is not necessary - for this you will pull an extra 4 euros. Maybe in season this makes sense, especially for motorists, there is nothing I can say.
Closer to the sea station are the berths of long ferry lines-to Sicily and Sardinia.
Walking along the pier in anticipation of the ferry to Ischia, I watched as the Harbor cheerfully went another car ferry. I was impressed by how quite a large ship at high speed maneuvering in a tight Harbor.
At one time, I looked at the slow mooring of the Volga ships, and watching the ferry turned around almost on the spot, I was imbued with deep respect for the skill of the Neapolitan skippers.
After a quarter of an hour, my ferry boarding began, and I went to Ischia island.
