Public Transit in Naples

Naples's rather old Metropolitana (subway system), also called Linea 2, provides fairly frequent service and can be the fastest way to get across the traffic-clogged city.

The other, continually expanding, urban subway system, Metropolitana Collinare (or Linea 1), links the hill area of the Vomero and beyond with the National Archaeological Museum and Via Toledo. Many of the stations are also mini-art galleries. Trains on both lines run from 6 am until 10:30 pm.

For standard public transit—including the subways, buses, and funiculars—an UnicoNapoli costs €1.30 and is valid for 90 minutes as far as Pozzuoli to the west and Portici to the east; €3.70 buys a biglietto giornaliero, good for the whole day (€3.10 on weekends).

Bus travel has become viable over the last few years, especially with the introduction of larger buses on regular routes. Electronic signs display wait times at many stops.
