Bike, subway and bus: how to move in Naples
The Best Western Hotel JFK of Naples, located in the tradeshow and San Paolo Stadium area near the Cavalleggeri Aosta subway station, would like to help its guests by giving some suggestion on how to getting around the city.
The city of Naples presents a relatively small historic center in which you can move quite easily by foot without a particular need of means of transport. However, there are the possibility to move faster, especially if you want to explore the more remote areas of the city.
Our tips for getting around Naples without worries:
- Line 1 (recently built): it starts from Piazza Dante and goes up to the Vomero, crossing the line 1 in the station of Piazza Cavour. Line 1 is the so-called Metro dell’Arte, because each stop was built along with 26 major contemporary artists.
- Line 2: from the Central Station of Naples Piazza Garibaldi and goes through the city until arriving in Pozzuoli, in the Campi Flegrei. Along the way there are all stops to reach the city center: Montesanto and Piazza Cavour stops are ideal for reaching the historic center, the road of the Cribs of San Gregorio Armeno, Piazza del Plebiscito and the Beverello dock for boarding. Piazza Amedeo leads to expensive shopping streets and the waterfront. Mergellina station is close to the boarding point of the hydrofoils to the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida. Further, there are the stops of Fuorigrotta to the stadium, Bagnoli for the Science City and, finally, Pozzuoli.
- Line 6: connects Fuorigrotta with Mergellina.
- Cumana: links the area of Montesanto with Bagnoli, west area of the city.
Few steps from the BW JFK Hotel, you are directly connected with the historic center of Naples. The line starts from the Montesanto station, it passes through Fuorigrotta and Pozzuoli and it ends in Torregaveta.
It is the more connected transport system, but buses are affected by traffic: delays and slowness in movements are commons.
Naples has 4 funiculars that connect the upper part of the city, avoiding the traffic: Chiaia, Montesanto, Central and Mergellina. Tickets and subscriptions are available from authorized dealers (bars, tobacconists, newsagents).
It is the means of transport used by those who do not want to wait or should make a particular path not covered by public transportation.
