Map and Directions


TO NAPOLI (NAPLES) – Italo & Trenitalia trains leave from Rome every half hour and, depending on how much you spend, it takes between 1 and 4 hours. For about 20 Euro there's an easy, comfortable, 2-hour Italo train, and the ones for roughly 10 Euro leave 4 times daily.

By plane, you can fly directly to Napoli from just about anywhere in the world. And it's much cooler than Rome.

FROM THE MAINLAND – catch a boat across the spectacular Gulf from Naples, Pozzuoli, Sorrento, Procida, Salerno, Positano, Amalfi or Capri and sail to Forio (which is then only 5 minutes by bus from our door), or to Casamicciola (about 20 minutes) or Ischia Porto (30 minutes). From Sorrento and Capri, the fast boats (aliscafi) leave from the Marina Piccola and, like the ones from Salerno, Amalfi and Positano, they operate from Spring to Autumn.

See the two timetables at



FROM NAPOLI CENTRALE RAILWAY STATION – follow the signs to "M (Metro) Linea 1" inside the railway station.
* Buy your ticket from any ticket office near the entry barrier gates, saying "Un biglietto", said like "On billy-et-toe" (1 ticket), and please, please, DON’T say “please”!. You can use the machines to buy your ticket, but there's no guarantee the machine will actually give you one! Napoli Centrale is an exceptionally safe (albeit bustling) station, so relax. Outside the station is safe too, but can seem a little chaotic at nights.
* Follow the signs, after passing the barrier gates, to the “Binari” (platform tracks) in the direction of PISCINOLA.
* You must get off the train at UNIVERSITÀ for Porta di Massa (for the cheap, slow ferries (traghetti) to Ischia Porto or Casamicciola),
or MUNICIPIO for Molo Beverello (the more expensive fast boats (aliscafi) directly to Forio).
* It’s difficult to describe the next part on the street outside the Metro station, but it’s best to walk towards the water or port… ask people for directions to whichever port you are going to. The people of Napoli are among the most friendly and helpful, and generally they speak English or will find someone who does.

TO THE CHEAPER BOATS – if you unwittingly end up at Molo Beverello, go behind the cafes, away from the fast boat terminal, and catch the free, blue shuttle bus to Calata Porta di Massa (about 5 minutes away by walking)...

On the island…

BUSES FROM ALL PORTS – catch the buses numbered 'CS' or '1', going left (when you are facing the sea). The bus stops are outside the port area on the same side of the street as the port, except at Ischia Porto. At Ischia Porto you must walk around the port to the main bus stop (la capolinea).

It’s easy to find us. After you leave Forio – all the buses go through Forio –

1 LOOK for the big sign on the top of a hotel saying “SORRISO Thermae Resort” on the right of the bus (5-10 minutes out of Forio). Beware of the various small directional signs for Sorriso… the sign you want is huge and on a hotel building. When you see it, wait until you...

2 GO AROUND THE CORNER, then press the bell…

3 GET OFF at the next stop and look behind the bus. You’ll see our sign saying “PARADISE BEACH”. Walk 30 seconds or so down our original, historically ancient, island path to the big white building. And don’t worry if the doggies bark… they are just happy to see you!

We’re here to help, and while you’re probably a fit backpacker, if you’re not, leave your bag at the TOP OF THE STEPS and come down to get some help.
