is the closest railway station to molo Beverello and can be reached by taxi in a few
minutes. Taxis are also the ideal form of transportation for those arriving at Capodichino
airport. Choosing this option offers the additional advantage of being able to see unique
panoramas such as Capri, Vesuvius, Ischia and the whole of the Sorrentina-Amalfitana
coastline. Boats departing from molo Beverello stop at Positano as well as at Amalfi.
From Positano you can reach us by taking a water taxi which charges Euro 30,00. Our hotel
is only 50 meters from the landing-stage.
Our management will reserve water taxi services for you with pleasure if you request us
to. Alternatively, we dont recommend that you disembark at Positano, as the distance
from the dock to the main road is over 500 meters. Covering this distance on foot with all
your baggage would be very tiring. Instead, we advise you to disembark at Amalfi, where
there is a bus stop only 20 meters from the port. Take a
SITA bus going
towards Sorrento from here.
Seven km after Amalfi, ask the bus driver to let you off at the stop located in our
from Capri to Onda Verde Hotel in Praiano:
Daily ferry boats from Capri (Marina Grande) to Positano.
From Positano with pleasure we could arrange water taxi to the pier below the Onda Verde

Naples offers a wide array of boat, ferry (traghetto),
hydrofoil (aliscafo), and steamer services to the islands in the Bay of Naples and
to the Sorrentine peninsula across the bay.
leave from the Molo Beverello - the dock just off Piazza Municipio in Naples, opposite the
More hydrofoils depart for Sorrento and Capri
from the Mergellina harbor (a short walk from the Mergellina train station), west of the
Villa Comunale and about 1½ km/1 mi to the west of Piazza Municipio.
Complete ferry and hydrofoil listings, as well as
schedules for Naples-Rome trains and flights from Capodichino Airport can be found in the
"Per chi Parte" ("For Those Departing") section of the local Il
Mattino newspaper; Qui Napoli, the helpful monthly English-language periodical
for visitors to Naples, also lists ferry and hydrofoil schedules.
Hydrofoil service is generally twice as fast as ferries and double the price. Service is
considerably more frequent during the summer months.
Capri is well connected with the mainland in all
seasons, though there tend to be more sailings between April and October. Ferries,
hydrofoils, Seacats, and similar vessels leave from the Molo Beverello (just southeast of
Piazza Municipio) in Naples and from Sorrento's Marina Piccola, while aliscafi
(hydrofoils) also sail from the small Mergellina harbor, a short distance west of the
Villa Comunale in Naples (about 1½ km/1 mi to the west of Piazza Municipio). From May to
October, there is also regular service to Capri from the Amalfi Coast.
Note to those planning a day trip to Capri: You can't return to Naples after 8 PM, which
is unfortunate if you hoped to cap off the day with an evening meal on the island.
