A Pass for the Amalfi coast that includes the ferries?

We will be staying in Sorrento for 4 nights in May and plan to get the Campania Arte Card - Tutta la Regione Pass. Does this pass include transportation on the ferries? If not, is there one that does? Thanks.

No - none of the ferries participate in that scheme.

Neither, by the way, do most - if not all - of this area's privately-owned bus operators, such as Curreri and Marrozi.

Those that do can be seen amongst the UnicoCampania membership, listed here...

No edit, but instead read that first sentence as....

No - none of the ferries participate in that scheme, nor any other that I've seen in eight years of living here!

A couple of years ago (2008), the 3 day Campania Arte Card did include one ride on the Metro del Mare. It wasn't posted on their website, but was on the brochure. May have been a one summer thing.

How quickly one forgets!

Although each has come and gone in its turn, over the years offers have indeed allowed some Campania Artecard holders use of the seasonal Metro del Mare hydrofoils.

Digging around at home, I've found a card we didn't use, probably bought in 2005 or 2006, when there were only three types: a 7-day card with no transport, and two 3-day ones that included a round trip on the MdM.

Ours happened to be the 'Naples and Campi Flegrei' card, and you can see what was provided by its 13 Euro price (and by the €25 3 day "All Sites" version), including the greatly-missed Archeobus services, here:

What great value it was in those days!

Subsequent editions have been much more limited: one after the other the Archeobuses were withdrawn and, from what I've read, the MdM offer was perhaps restricted to just one route, the former MM1 ?

As so often with the internet, once information gets posted, it's not always removed or corrected as circumstances change - and one continues to find, for instance, outdated stuff such as this:
http://www.pintostorey.it/campania_a..._13en737en.htm

More's the pity!

......................................

Perhaps then I should have a third go....

"No - none of the privately-owned ferries participate in that scheme, nor - recently - has the publicly-funded Metro del Mare. Neither, by the way, do most - if not all - of this area's privately-owned bus operators, such as Curreri and Marrozi."

There again, it might have been simpler to mention this, which explains the Transport that IS covered by the card:

For a list of participating operators, click on the Italian flag there - but ignore the presence of a hydrofoil's photo!
