In Naples, ferries arrive and depart from Molo Beverello in Piazza Municipio (next to the pier where cruise ships dock).

The Amalfi port for all ferry arrivals and departures is Molo Pennello in the town center.

In Positano, the ferry pier is located at the Spiaggia Grande beach. If you need to arrive in the upper section of town, we do not suggest arriving by sea, as there are no roads connecting the pier and the highest section of town, but only flights of stairs. Regardless, there are luggage porters available at the pier.

In Capri, the port is located at Marina Grande. To reach the center of Capri town, you'll need to use the funicular or take a taxi.
