How to reach us

By plane

From Naples Capodichino International airport you can reach Molo Beverello (hydrofoil harbour) with the shuttle bus Alibus that directly connects the airport to the harbour.  Tickets are available on board.  You can also take a taxi from the airport to the boarding harbours of Mergellina or Beverello.

By train

From Naples central railway station you can reach Molo Beverello or the farther harbour of Mergellina by taxi or by bus. Tickets are available inside the station.  Mergellina railway station is about 500m from Mergellina harbour.

By car

Go past the Naples exit on the motorway, continue for about 12 km then enter the ring road (“Tangenziale”) following the direction for Pozzuoli.  At the end of the ring road leave at the first exit after the toll gate “via Campana”, follow the directions for the harbour and take a boat for Ischia Porto or Casamicciola.  If you chose to board from Calata Porta di Massa, in Naples harbour, after the exit gate on the motorway follow the directions for “Napoli zona portuale”, then for Calata Porta di Massa.

From Ischia or Casamicciola harbours to the Castle by car 

From the harbour of Casamicciola take the road on your left till you reach the city of Ischia.  After the highway SS 270 you will find some traffic lights: take the road going down on your left, go along the whole via Michele Mazzella till Piazza degli Eroi, then turn right – via Sogliuzzo – for Ischia Ponte.  The Castle is at the end of the main road which passes through Ischia Ponte.

From the Ischia harbour to the Castle without car 

From the Ischia harbour you can take a bus – number 7 – at bus terminus in Trieste and Trento square, a few metres from the harbour.  You can buy the ticket at Eavbus office or on board at a higher price.

You can also reach the Aragonese Castle by taxi, and we suggest you to fix the price with the driver in advance: the distance is about 2 km.  If you have no luggage and you like to walk, you can reach the Castle on foot, through Ischia high street, or skirting the beaches: it is a beautiful walk.
