How to reach us by air or train
From Capodichino Airport and Naples Central Station (Stazione Centrale), take a bus or a taxi to the Molo Beverello in the Port of Naples if you want to arrive on Ischia island with the fast hydrofoil service, or to the Porta di Massa if you prefer the ferry.
By Hydrofoil (“Aliscafo”)
The hydrofoils (trip duration approx. 50 mins) come in to the island at Ischia Porto, Casamicciola or Forio depending on the carrier you choose and the time of your trip. We would recommend that you come to Forio, which is the closest port to Sant’Angelo. The trip takes 20-25 mins by bus, via routes no. 1 or CS, or less by taxi.
By Ferry (“Traghetto”)
The ferries (trip duration approx. 90 mins) arrive in Ischia Porto or Casamicciola. The bus trip from Ischia Porto to Sant’Angelo is approx 50 minutes, via routes no. 1, CS or CD, or less if you choose to come by taxi.
From Sant’Angelo bus/taxi stop to Villa Franz
Sant’Angelo is almost entirely traffic-free, so the only ways to reach us from the bus stop once you get to Sant’Angelo are by foot or electric taxi. Villa Franz is approx. 20 minutes’ walk from the Sant’Angelo bus stop, on a beautiful but slightly hilly road that follows the coast. As you will be carrying luggage with you, we would recommend that you take an electric taxi for this first trip to us. These can be found approx. 200 m from the bus stop, or you can call us when you get to the bus stop and we will arrange for one to come and pick you up (OK Carmen?).
Alternatively, we can arrange for a transfer service that will bring you directly to Hotel Villa Franz from Naples Airport or its train station, or from your chosen port of arrival in Ischia. We can also arrange your transfer by bus from most large Italian cities. To request further information and costs, please contact us via e-mail and we will be very happy to help you make your travel arrangements)
How to reach us by car
Ferries depart from Porta di Massa in the Port of Naples, and from the Port of Pozzuoli to the north of Naples and arrive either in Ischia Porto or Casamicciola, depending upon the carrier and the time of departure. On disembarking at either port, follow signs for Forio, and then for Sant’Angelo (S. Angelo). On your arrival in Sant’Angelo, you will have to park your car in one of the car parks at the entrance to the village and proceed on foot or by electric taxi. For directions on how to reach us from the car park, please see above (“From Sant’Angelo bus/taxi stop to Villa Franz”).
