Naples Airport (NAP) - access to the center and other destinations

Naples is an extremely popular destination for Polish tourists. It is a great option for a weekend City break. In addition to just visiting Naples, it will also be a great idea to visit nearby Pompeii, Vesuvius or Herculaneum. Flights to Naples are operated by Polish low-cost airlines Wizzair and Ryanair, and ticket prices are often just a few dozen zlotys. You can get to Naples airport by Ryanair from Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw. Wizzair offers cheap flights to Naples from Katowice and Warsaw. Naples airport is located very close to the city center, so getting there should not provide us with any problems. It is located about 7 km from the center of Naples. The airport itself is one of the largest airports in Italy and the largest in the Campania region.

    If one has some time and does not necessarily need to go to Garibaldi Square, then 8 minutes from the airport from the stop Maddalena Aeroporto Civile there is a bus 182 ( more or less in the direction of via Feria ). Tickets - 1, 20 euros - you have to buy at the airport because there is nowhere near the bus stop. It suits us better because of the finish line.
