Where is the Siremar ferry terminal in Napoli?

Does anyone have advice on getting to the Siremar ferry terminal in Napoli? We are heading out on the 10 pm ferry to Stromboli and are not exactly sure what the ferry terminal is like or even what its name is. I see where it is on a map, but not sure how to tell a taxi driver to get us there without a name. We will be arriving at the central train station, and will need to take a taxi to the terminal. Is it comfortable to wait at the ferry terminal for several hours?

You need to ask your taaxi driver to take you to the porto. Tragehtto siremar - he will know - its on Via Marina, but Im sure he does the trip regularly. Its not a nice place to wait particularly - its a working port so is low on creature comforts.

All you need to tell the taxi is traghetto Siremar, Calata Porta di Massa.

Thank you! Very helpful! I would have probably gone to the wrong place as the map shows the ferry at Immacolatella.

The port is very large in Naples. Head to the port Calata Porta di Massa, the Varco Immacolatella, and the ticket office is located at Angioino.

Thank you everyone. It was an adventure. The taxi driver was a an awesome person (he was so excited to talk to us about American politics that we had to remind him that we needed to pay him when he dropped us off). However, he didn't know where to take us. He ended up dropping us off where the cars were loading which got us stuck in a traffic jam. So we got out and wandered around looking for where to go. Advice for future travelers on Siremar: make sure your taxi driver drops you at the ticket office (a red and white brick building), even if you already have your tickets, as that is where you check in. Other advice: once on board either walk the stairs (quick) or take the lift (long line) to the main level where you check in to get your cabin key. Once the ferry starts moving, there is a mad crush to get in line for food. We sat up on deck for an hour and then had food later, when there was no more line. The ferry is gigantic, cabins are small but comfortable.

as usual, thanks Vagabonda.

I'll let you know what the overnight boat ride is like after we've done it.

Thank you luckyduck52!

It would be great to have a current report for this crossing.

It's not a cruise, but it is acceptable, saves time, and it saves the cost of a night's hotel stay, and the views are priceless.

Best wishes for a fantastic holiday!

Hopefully you'll have lots of time to enjoy all your future trips PWMW.

These forums are dangerous for planting ideas! :-)
