Thanks to its strategic position, Naples can be easily reached by air (Capodichino International Airport, code NAP) or by land.

In the following, we provide different solutions to reach the Conference Location starting from the airport or from the main railway station.

Airport to Congress Center by Bus

There is a special bus connecting the Capodichino Airport to the city center, called Alibus, that runs every 30 minutes (Timetable) from the airport.
Tickets cost € 3.00 and can be bought directly on board the bus or also at the Sun Store shop in the airport.

Once taken the Alibus:
  • Get off at the last stop (Municipio/Molo Beverello)
  • Walk for about 200mt south-west to Via Acton
  • Take the bus 154 (Timetable).
  • Get off after six stops (Via Partenope). The stop is located few meters before the Congress Center.

Airport to Congress Center by Taxi

There is a standard fare of about € 23. In order to get such fare, specify Alberghi Lungomare as the desired destination when getting the taxi from the Airport.

We strongly advice to get only authorized taxis, that can be easily recognized by the fact that they are white and expose one of the following two logos:

Railway Station to Congress Center by Bus

Once arrived in the Railway Central Station:
  • Go to the Bus Terminal located in Piazza Garibaldi, just out of the station.
  • Take the R2 bus and get off at Municipio (the eighth stop). R2 buses run every 7/8 minutes from the Terminal.
  • Walk for less than 2 Kms following this path.

As well as healthy (thanks to the walk), this solution is very cheap since it costs only € 1.20 for the bus ticket.

Railway Station to Congress Center by Train and Bus

Another affordable solution from the Railway station could be taking a train and then change to a bus.
In more details, once in the Railway station:
  • Take the Metro Line 2 directly from the station.

  • Get off at the fourth stop, Mergellina.
  • Exit the station and take the C24 bus. (Timetable)
  • Get off at the ninth stop (V. Partenope), just in front of the Conference Location.
Please note that this solution is as cheap as the previous one, since you can take both the train and the bus with the same ticket that costs € 1.20.

There is a standard fare of € 11.50. In order to get such fare, specify Alberghi Lungomare as the desired destination when getting the taxi from the Railway Station.
