The Alilauro's fleet is composed by 11 operational ferries, being its new Catamaran Angelina Lauro the "crown jewel". But the modern history of the Lauro family business began long time ago at the port of Ischia, in 1944, with Agostino Lauro aboard the Freccia del Golfo.
The crossing time is only 45 minutes, so the facilities on board are limited. You'll enjoy the wonderful landscape while you approach to your destiny.

About Ischia Porto
Ischia is the largest island in the bay of Naples and although Capri is by far the most famous island in this region, many people consider Ischia to be more beautiful. The largest town in Ischia is also called Ischia. This can be initially confusing. In the town of Ischia, there are two different centres. These are Ischia Porto and Ischia Ponte. Ischia Porto is the region where the port is located, and the region itself, is, of course, named after the port. This area is the commercial centre of the island.
Ischia Town stretches along the north east coastline of the island. Ischia is a delightful and vivacious town. Multi-coloured houses stretch along the edge of a lake which was once a crater. This lake was converted into a safe harbour by Ferdinand II of the Bourbons by opening up one side to the sea. You will find lsh pine woods throughout the town that stretch down to the beaches.
The area of Ischia Ponte is renowned for its beaches, thermal springs, historical attractions and luxury hotels built on fantastic sites of stunning natural beauty.
