    CNN and the Daily Telegraph have recognized Toledo as the most beautiful metro station in Europe. Toledo, opened in 2012, bypassed Munich's minimalist Westfriedhof and the luxurious (according to CNN pompous) Komsomolskaya in Moscow. Architect Oscar Tusquets and artists William Kentridge and Robert Wilson have developed an unusual design of the deepest (50 m) station in Naples. Or rather, the part of it where the escalator is located. The unusual overflow of light at the top really catches the eye. We were here late in the evening and this is the best option to linger near the escalator and look up. I think it's not safe during the day. However, all the admiration will remain here. It seems that the designers were contracted to do only the lobby. Or they weren't paid. The same photo in all ratings and there are no trains! This is because the platform itself is nothing unusual. There are hundreds of such platforms around the world. Therefore, CNN's rating is controversial. I would recognize Toledo as the most beautiful lobby of the metro station.

    Travelled on the GNV Antaries Naples to Palermo Sept 4 2022.
    The Company GNV could treat it's customers much better
    No waiting room available but luckily weather was fine so sat outside in the balmy Naples evening for 2 hours. very poor signage to find the ticket office
    Had booked a so called double suite with sea view, it was a shoe box with a double bed squeezed in to one side with barely enough room for 2 large wheelie bags and you had to stand on the bed to look out the window
    We had purchased a meal voucher which was a waste of 80 Euros as we could not doo much considering the ship left at mid night.
    Cabin was hot but at least the showers worked.
    Save your money, just get a twin cabin and buy food as you want it

    We took SNAV round-trip from Naples for a day trip to Capri. Buying advance tickets online was easy and saved time day-of. NOTE: you need to exchange your confirmation for an actual ticket. (This is clearly stated in the confirmation email.) Both ferries ran on-time, boarding process was easy and efficient. Seats were plentiful and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but no complaints. PS. I have to agree with another reviewer that they should clean their windows! :)

    Napoli is situated on two levels. Unless you enjoy a long steep climb to upper part of the city, the best way up is using the convenient funiculars or the metro.

    This funicular is one of four in Naples and takes the strain of walking up and down some serious hills. Cheap to use and works most of the time, occasionally out of service so be prepared.

    It dates back to 1928, one of four in Naples and the busiest with over 10 million passengers annually. Rising 170m over 1.2km it moves slowly on 2 cars from Via Toledo to Piazza Fuga, taking about 10 min, stopping 3 times. It is very clean, a little “blah” but very functional helping many save time and energy.

    My wife and I came to Naples for a week long vacation. We rented a beautiful hose right on the water. La Casa Sull Acqua. We wanted to take in the whole experience of living here. We decided to take public transportation. The local bus line here is ANM bus line. We got on the bus at the stop by the house. The bus was easy to use with the exception of buying a pass on the bus. There were a couple of us from foreign countries that tried to buy passes with no luck. Within a couple stops the transit police entered the bus and fined us all for not having passes. We explained that the machine doesn't work. However, the wrote us tickets for no pass and the penalty was 50 euros each. We had no choice to pay it or go to jail. We went to the ticket office and tried to buy a pass but they said that the ticket the police gave us was good. Then we got caught again several hours later for not having a pass.having. we showed him the ticket where we paid the fine. He said no good and had to pay another 100 euros. What a scam. Dont ride the bus. Take a can and save yourself some money better yet don't go to Naples. The rest of Italy is fine.

    It was not easy to get your arms around what tickets to buy for the Capri tour! A lot of different counters with different names and prices, so we were only guessing when standing in one of the lines to get tickets for the Capri ferry. Price EUR 38.50, quite pricy for such a short ride, but I guess that the price is ruled by supply and demand…
    Almost chaotic upon return, there were a lot of people wanting to get on the ferry, and were trying to get on board when the boat was too crowded!

    I wanted to sample a "cruise" in Italy and make my trip efficient by traveling from Naples to Catania at night while I sleep. Located at the front of the ship, the superior cabin was great, bigger than expected with a small fridge (complimentary bottle of water), desk, sufficient lighting and a (dirty) window. The ensuite bathroom features a sink, shower and efficient toilet.

    At Naples, Alibus stops right in front of the TTT Lines ferry terminal, which is a little waiting room with convenient, automated luggage lockers (3 euros), English speaking ticketing staff and free wifi, which in itself is an awesome amenity in downtown Naples. Note the weird opening times (closed from 13:00 to 16:30 among others) because you won't have access to your luggage at those times. I got there shortly after noon, picked up my printed tickets, left my luggage and explored the surrounding area (there is a LOT to see in the neighborhood of the ferry terminal).

    From the terminal, it's quite difficult to get to the boat: you have to haul your luggage through uneven roads, pass through a gate that is also used by trucks to drive onto the ship and disregard misleading signs (CATANIA arrows in 2 different directions on my way to the boat). Once you get by the boat, you have to haul your luggage by yourself on the same platform as the trucks and then take the escalators to the 2nd floor and check-in. You will be asked to leave your photo ID in exchange for the key. The boarding and check-in process could have been easier and more convenient but I understand that this line mostly caters to truckers and drivers so it wasn't designed for walk-on passengers.

    There was plenty of room on the ship as there were only 6-7 people in the cabins and about a dozen truck drivers. There are sitting rooms, a bar and a restaurant that had a simple, Italian-only menu with no options for vegetarians or pescetarians.

    Air conditioning and air circulation is pretty loud in the cabin but I found sleeping on board most comfortable. However, the staff will wake you up and make you leave your cabin a FULL HOUR before arrival in Catania (at some point, they were so rushed that I though they would make us jump into the water while the ship was still sailing) so they can clean the ship. Nevermind that you will miss sleep and have to stand for an hour waiting for the ship to dock, as long as they have the time to clean the cabins, that's all it matters. They want you out and they want you out fast...

    In that sense, service is TERRIBLE and offers very, very poor value for money. For 150USD per night, not being able to enjoy the sleep and have to stand for an hour before docking is unacceptable. As is often the case in Italy, customers exist to serve employees and not employees to serve customers. On arrival in Catania, a shuttle bus will transport you and your luggage to the entrance of the port where you can walk to the train station (8 minutes) or downtown (6 minutes).

    Due to the terrible service, I don't know if I would use this ferry again. The product was 7/10, the value for money was 7/10 but the customer service/staff was 1/10.

    Although still in process of making it work and expanding its network, Naples metro is ok, with rather clean stations and trains.

    TERRIBLE! Do not recommend this company that treats its customer with disrespect. In Naples port we were told to wait for our departure in a certain port and with 5 mins left and no boat in sight, I went to the ticket office and the lady told me "Oh, sorry, this is not the right port for you oops" and I have lost a day of Capri. After like 20 emails geting the same automated response, I still didn't get my money back. I recommend SNAV company, the staff is more competent.

    We did the all day Capri trip from Sorrento and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had 12 people on our boat, and we cruised around Capri, stopping at various grottos and sites and to swim in a couple of different places. We weren't able to do the Blue Grotto because there was a one and a half hour wait, but there were so many other things to see, that it wasn't missed. We got 4 hours on Capri and made it up to Anacapri for the chairlift to the top of the mountain. The boat driver and guide were excellent, and we even got some limoncello on the way back to Sorrento. Highly recommended.

    Are use the service from room to Sorrento with two tours. I use them again from palermo to trapani and San Vito back to palermo. Drivers were excellent and very safe, cars were clean communication for pick up was exceptional. The hardest part when traveling in Europe is having to rent a car pay the expensive fees, gas insurance let along having to drive in an area you’ve never been. The trip takes all the hassle away I will use them every time I travel to Europe. This was the best experience I’ve had in years highly recommend them!
