Moving on Ischia

ON FOOT OR BY BICYCLE IIschia has a rather wide territory (approximately 80 km of street network) and it is advisable to move on foot only in the town centres or for pleasant walks along the various country itineraries.
During the tourist season there is a lot of traffic on its streets, it would be therefore better to use a bicycle only for short distances.

BY CAR Using an own car is always possible, but please pay attention to the numerous no parkings situated in the town centres, where it is advisable only to park either in the public or in the private parking areas (on charge). In some towns (and anyway in certain well defined street areas) it is allowed to park by showing a pre-paid ticket, which costs Lit. 1.000 and is valid for an hour.
Obviously, it is possible to hire a car on the island as well as a motor-bicycle or a bicycle, at the numerous rental centres located in each town.

BY TAXI OR BUS The public transport service is rather effective and is formed by taxis, microtaxis and multi-seats vehicles (it is however advisable to agree previously the journey charge) as well as by the public bus transport by the SEPSA Company.

THE PUBLIC BUS SERVICE

The public bus service connects quite good the various centres of the island through frequent journeys, most of them having their terminus in the town of Ischia Porto close to the harbour. The charge for a single journey (valid 60 minutes) amounts to Lit. 1.800, but is also possible to purchase tickets with a wider validity at cheap prices.
These tickets can be bought at very numerous shops (notably newsstands, bars, travel agencies and tobacconist's).
