Naples Airport bus FAQs

I arrive late at the airport. Will it be a problem for me to get to the city?

No, even though the last shuttle bus is at 23:40 (11:40 PM), you still have the taxi (19 euros to Piazza Municipio and 16€ to Central Station) or you can pre-order a transfer. They are available 24/7.

I have an early morning departure from the airport, are there any airport hotels I can stay at?

Yes, there are several hotels near the airport, at 1.5 km distance, which means the terminal buildings can be reached on foot.
However, you can ask at the reception to arrange a transfer to the airport if you have a lot of luggage. Some of the hotels near the Naples airport are Luxor Hotel, Hotel Daytona, Millenium Gold and Le Cheminee Business hotel.

I would like to visit Naples in between flights. Is that possible?

Yes, if you take the airport shuttle bus, you will be in downtown Naples in about 20 minutes. You can use the luggage deposit at the Central train station at Piazza Garibaldi. Keep in mind the time you need to come back to the airport and enjoy your day in Naples! 

I am continuing my journey outside Naples. Are there any direct lines to other destinations?

Yes, there are several bus lines directly from the airport, offering connections with smaller towns and villages in the region, e.g. Salerno, Sorrento, Potenza, Caserta, Serre, etc.
However, these buses go only few times a day, so you might have to wait a bit longer, depending on your flight arrival. For all other destinations like Naples to Orvieto, Naples to Bari, Naples to Rome, or Naples to Frosinone, you will need to reach the main bus station in Naples. You can check all further destinations online at

    Sadly this website fails to provide details. Comprehensive information on Bus services to and from Naples Airport seem impossible to locate.anywhere, even at the Airport itself. For example, looking for times for buses from Naples Airport to Battipaglia on a Sunday, no information is found. However, I know are 3 services each way that operate ONLY on Sundays.

  2. Peter   •  

    Please could you inform me of a local bus /mini bus service from Naples Airport to Sorrento, including pick up point at airport,

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Peter,

    Can you advise if the Naples to Sorrento airport bus runs runs in November also? If so, do you have a timetable? Thank you.

  4. Trish leask   •  

    Hi – I have booked a bus to Polignano a Mare which leaves from Naples Metro Park. Does the airport bus go to Mtero Park bus station?
    Or is it a different bus station?
    If it’s a different bus station, how do I transfer between the 2 please?
    Thanks, Trish

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Trish,

      The airport bus goes to Central Train Station but the train station is in the proximity of Metro Park bus station (200m), so there’s no need for a transfer.

      Best regards!

  5. Melanie H.   •  

    Ciao, can you please tell me if there is a city bus that will transport me from Capo airport to Naples city center? I need to go to and from airport a few times during my 2-week stay and so I’d like to use the Unico pass to travel to and from airport, rather than the more expensive Alibus (5 Euros each way). Mille grazie.

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Melanie,

      There’s actually one local city bus line C68 which stops near the airport. It departs from Piazza Carlo III. You can check the route and timetable here –

    • Melani   •

  7. Harriet Ruth Gill   •  

    I arrive into Naples at 20:40 next Tuesday. I have read that I can get an airport shuttle bus called Alibus to the centre. How frequently do these comes and do they come after 21:00 at night?
    I am staying in Sorrento so have read I can get a bus, train or metro to Sorrento. I have looked all over to find a timetable. Can you tell me what is the latest bus or train to Sorrento?

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Harriet,

      There are buses departing from the airport to city centre at 21:10 and the next one at 21:30. However, if you are staying in Sorrento, you can take a direct bus from Naples Airport, here’s the timetable.

      Best regards!

  8. Dave   •  

    Good afternoon.

    We are 4 young friends reach Naples Airport next week on Wednesday afternoon. Need to go to Hotel San Pietro. Don’t you think it is more economical to get Taxi rather than Alibus?

    How much is Taxi to Hotel San Pietro for 4 passenger?

    Please advise

    Many Thanks

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Dave,

      An approximate price for a taxi ride from Naples Airport to Centro Storico (city centre) would cost €18 and shuttle bus costs €5 so it would be a better option to take a taxi and share the cost.

      Best regards!
      Melani, GBB Team

      • Bill Choi   •  

        Your explanation would make sense if they charged 18 Euros. The airport taxi drivers and handler insisted on 25 euros to take 4 people (2 adults and 2 children) with 4 bags to the central bus station. I showed them the trip advisor and your estimate but they wouldn’t change their price. Clearly, they’re hanging up to make money off the foreign tourists.

        • Melani   •  

          Dear Bill,

          Taxi prices are prone to changes and may vary depending on the taxi company, the price we put is an average price. To avoid getting overcharged, we suggest booking a private transfer with fixed price. More info on

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Tom,

      In these cases it would be best to book a transfer online. That way you will have a fixed price right away and there’s no worry of getting overcharged.

    My wife and I arrive into Naples Airport from the UK on Sunday 12th May 2009. We are staying at Casa Neo Cuore Di Napoli, Via Monteoliveto 86, Naples Historical Centre, 80134.
    Is the shuttle bus a viable option and how much will it cost for transfers please.

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Stephen,

      Since there’s no direct bus connection between Naples Airport and your accommodation, I suggest to book a transfer in advance or take a taxi. A booked transfer would cost you around €40 (in total).

      Best regards,

    Ciao Melanie,
    Thanks first for all the replies to make our trips easier.
    In my case, my wife and me are arriving at Naples airport tomorrow (31/Dec/2018) at 22:10. I understand there are no buses at that time on that day. Can you please let me know how much I should be expecting to pay for a taxi on that day at that time from the airport to the Spanish Quarter?
    Thanks in advanced.

    • Kristina   •  

      Hi Jose,
      You are more than welcome, we are trying to help our readers as much as we can. 🙂
      The last shuttle bus from the airport should run around 23:40. Nevertheless, you will find many taxis parked in front of the airport building, and the prices of the ride from the airport to the city centre usually go around 20€.

      All best,

    Where I can find a transport from Naples Centre to the airport about 4 a.m.?

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Maria,

      Currently there’s no public transport from Naples to the airport at this hour so you will probably need to order a taxi.

  14. tonya Murphy   •  

    Please can you advise if it is easier to get a taxi to Via Catullo or is there a bus from the airport and what is the cost for both please

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Tonya,

      There’s no direct bus from the airport to Via Catullo, the airport bus runs to Napoli Centrale (main train station) and Piazza Municipio. You should either use combination of train and metro to get to Via Catullo, but in my opinion, the least complicated option is to just get a taxi. It will cost around €20.

    Hi, are there any AliBus service running from Naples Airport to Varco Immacolatella bus station during the weekends? Thank you!

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Shandy,

      First you need to take the shuttle bus from the airport to Piazza Garibaldi and then transfer to L1 (Piscinola) metro line and get off at Università metro station. From there you have additional 5 min walk to Varco Immacolatella.

      there is a bus that departs 3 times a day from Naples Capodichino to Potenza (stopping in Picerno) with the first one being at 2pm.
      The estimated time of arrival is 2,5 hours.
      There is also a train option from Piggioreale but you should change train at Garibaldi station. There are several departures (the 1st one you can catch is at 4:20pm).
      Depending on the departure, you might need to change the train in Salerno or Eboli.
