Travel to Ischia

If staying in Positano, what is the best/quickest way to get over to the island? How long?

Thanks in advance

It varies hugely with the time of year - when, and at what time of day, would you be travelling

Ean,

Thanks! At that time of year, by far the easiest way to get here is on the daily fast boat service, operated by Alicost.

This summer they used the M.N. Raid, and ran from 15th June until 30th September - picking up from Positano at 08:50, and arriving at Ischia Porto some time around 10.30, with tickets costing 19 Euro.

The 2009 timetable is still available - although it may be taken down at any time - here:

There were no other scheduled services between the two this summer - the alternative would involve coming via Sorrento or Capri (one connection per day from each) or travelling to Naples and changing there (a much longer journey), so the Alicost is the one I'd recommend!

Peter
