Medmar is a market leader in ferry transportation in the Gulf of Naples, Italy, making nine thousand connections each year to the islands Ischia, Procida and Ponza from the mainland.

Founded over half a century ago, Medmar transports almost two million passengers and five hundred thousand vehicles annually, serving one of the most important and visited touristic destinations in southern Italy. From both Naples and Pozzuoli, the Phlegraean and Pontine Islands are roughly an hour’s journey, while the interisland routes can be as quick as thirty minutes.

Medmar Customer Reviews

  • "Easy trip!"

    Our journey too/ from Naples to Ischia worked well last week. The online booking through Direct Ferries was simple from the Uk sometime before departure. The ferries were on time. Good experience overall. We travelled from Rome to Naples by train (very easy, comfortable, quick, efficient, clean. No need to print out tickets, just show the booking reference to the guard on the train). The information point in Naples station directed us to the underground metro ( line1, 2 stops to the Port) again very simple. We caught the bus on arrival at Ischia - again simple. The bus stop can be seen as you disembark - a gathering of buses to the left of the port. Our journey to Sant Angelo took about 35 mins and cost 1.20 euro so don't be tempted to take one of the taxis lined up in the port! ischia is beautiful!

  • "Great!"

    Everything was better than expected. I was very late after almost losing my phone. They let me board with only 5 min to spare. Pleasantly surprised to find air conditioned seats.

  • "Smooth Cruise"

    My husband and I travelled between Pozzuoli and Casamicciola on our trip to Ischia between 18.10.15 /24.10.15. We sat on deck for both trips as the weather was good. The ship was clean and the staff were efficient. Unloading and reloading took 30mins and the ship was spot on for timing with the journey lasting 1hour. We did not use the catering but would definitely rebook with Medmar and also recommend to friends. Our only regret was that Medmar was running a special offer with our hotel which we missed.
