Private Driver in Ischia

We will be coming to Ischia from Naples by Ferry and would like to see a much as we can for the day and we were wondering if anyone could recommend a private driver to meet us at the ferry when we arrive to take us around.

Another question would be if not a private driver will there be taxis available when we get off the ferry?

Thanks so much.

There were taxis at the ferry port.

If I'm not too late with this, taxis licensed by the Comune of Ischia offer a fixed price tour of the island - 80 Euro for three hours, including stops.. the last item on this list:


We've done it once with friends who were briefly visiting from Sorrento, and it worked surprisingly well... although a bit expensive if only two of you?

The rank is at the shore end of the hydrofoil quay... otherwise, a day-long ticket for the island buses costs 6 Euro, from the booth at the nearby depot!

Wow, that is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much Peter. That helps us so much and no, you are not too late. We will be there the end of September.

We we be arriving in Naples by cruise ship and I understand the ferry to take us to Ischia is right there when we get off the ship. There will be 4 of us so the cost is fine. The 3 hours will be great because we also want to spend some time in Negombo.

This is our plan. I hope I am correct in assuming that the taxi can drop us off at Negombo at the end of the 3 hours and then after we spend time there again I am assuming there will be taxi's available there to take us back to the ferry to return to Naples.

We are all really loking forward to seeing Ischia. Hope the weather the end of September will still be warm to enjoy Negombo.

Thanks again Peter.

That sounds a great plan! And yes, we've always seen a line of taxis waiting outside Negombo...

Might be an idea to download a copy of the island magazine - August's is currently at the head of the list, here:


Hope you'll have a lovely day, September's a gorgeous month:
