Naples Cruise Port Tours

1,408 Reviews
With Mount Vesuvius looming on the horizon, vibrant Naples stretches along the coastline, beckoning visitors to explore its world-class sights. The city’s busy shipping port makes an ideal starting point for a tour, and is also the gateway for visiting some of southern Italy’s most famous attractions.

The Basics
Naples is a fascinating city with a long history and captivating historic center. From the cruise port of Naples, join a private tour to visit the the Royal Palace and other important monuments, or join a walking or Segway tour with a private guide to explore the picturesque neighborhoods in Old Naples and sample the city's famous pizza. Shore excursions depart from the cruise port to other popular sights in the surrounding region of Campania, including the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the islands of Capri and Ischia, the clifftop resort town of Sorrento, and the Amalfi Coast’s waterfront villages of Ravello, Positano, and Amalfi.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Cruise excursions and walking tours usually depart directly from the Naples port of Molo Beverello.
  • There is no train service from Naples directly to the Amalfi Coast; you must take the Circumvesuviana train to Sorrento and transfer to a local bus there. Note that there is limited space on these crowded public buses, so passengers often have to stand for the duration of the 30- to 45-minute trip.
  • The commuter Circumvesuviana train runs from the lower level of Naples’ Centrale train station to Pompeii (Pompei stop), Herculaneum (Ercolano stop), and Sorrento, but can be crowded in summer with limited seating.
  • Public ferries depart from Molo Beverello and Calata di Massa ports (a shuttle runs between them) for Capri and Sorrento year-round, and for Ischia and Procida in summer. To avoid long ticket lines, consider booking a private boat tour.

How to Get to Naples From the Naples Cruise Port
Most cruise ships dock at Molo Beverello next to the Naples’ cruise ship terminal, the Stazione Marittima. Molo Beverello is set right in the city center, an easy walk to many waterfront sights. The Napoli Centrale train station is located in Piazza Garibaldi and can be reached by public bus or taxi.

Port Information
All the major cruise lines dock at Naples. The Italian currency is the euro, and you’ll find exchange bureaus, banks, and ATMs in the cruise terminal. English isn’t widely spoken as Italian is the local language, but it is usually understood at major tourist sites.
