Naples Boats and Ferries

Speed Boat transportation started again for the season between between the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno. The service is known as Metro del Mare. Rapid sea connections will be provided between 24 ports of the Campania coast,reaching a total of nine lines in 2008. The MM2 and MM3 lines will be running between Naples to Salerno, stopping at some of the ports of the Sorrento and Amalfi coast. The monohull and catamaran hydrofoils will be equipped this year with onboard bar services, and announcements will be made to passengers in Italian and English to indicate the next docking port. Brief tourism information will also be provided. An information call centre, info-points at the stops and on mobile phones, will further enhance the offer. Some of the Sea Metro Lines are complemented by road transportation services that make it possible, with one ticket, to take mini-excursions to the archaeological sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum, as well as to Mount Vesuvius. During the summertime shows at Villa Favorita in Herculaneum night time service will also be offered. Good news for tourists of limited budgets.
