How to get around within Campania

Campania's public transit uses a unified ticket system called Campa Unico, which can be used within the region only. The tickets are organised in zones, meaning one ticket can allow the user to travel within or between certain zones. If unsure how the tickets and the zones work, ask upon purchasing the tickets. Local bus service is also quite efficient and most are included in the Unico Campania system. The journey by bus can become a bit uncomfortable when full, but this is usually the case with most bus rides all over the world. Buses are the only option for transport along the Amalfi coastline.

It receives regular flights from many cities, including Casablanca, Stuttgart, Paris, Milan, Rome, Palermo, Bucharest, London, Athens, Berlin, Brussels, Hamburg, Nice, Geneva, Bologna, Madrid, Moscow, and others.
