From Portici to Capdichino in the middle of the night

I need to get from Portici to the airport at around 4am on a Sunday morning. I have more time than money, so I would prefer not to take a taxi the whole way if there is a cheaper option (I'm thinking night bus into Naples, then a taxi). Is there a map of the night bus lines?

There are night buses within the city but precious few from the suburbs into the city.

The latest bus that I know of is the EAV bus that stops at Portici at 11 minutes after midnight, arriving to Napoli Centrale at around 12:25 AM.

There is a "pod" hotel at the airport, maybe you should give up your Portici accommodations and spend the last few hours at the airport: http://bednboarding.com/

Okay, I take that back. There is a night bus that stops at Portici on its way to Naples: www.anm.it/index.php…

Thank you! That bus looks perfect, if I can manage to catch it.

The pod hotel at the airport would definitely be the most intelligent solution. But I am stupid.

If I get off at Piazza Garibaldi, there should be taxis waiting there even in the middle of the night, right? Or will I have to call one?

I'm not sure about that, there are no trains arriving to or departing from Napoli Centrale between midnight and 4 AM so there might not be any taxis hanging around.

I think it will end up being more like 4:30 or 4:45, so I should be OK (hopefully). I just hope I manage to convince one of them to accept the fixed price lol…

Unfortunately the Alibus doesn't start running to the airport until 6:15 AM so that won't work for you, a taxi is your only alternative.

It shouldn't be an issue to get the fixed fare, you simply have to declare it. That said, I would never presume to vouch for the honesty or integrity of taxi drivers anywhere, not just Naples. I've personally never had an issue getting the fixed fare but I've never tried in the middle of the night, either.

Everything went fine: There were taxis at the station at 4:30, and although my driver initially asked for 25 euros, when I said 18 he immediately agreed. The ride was less than 10 minutes.

Remind me never to book a flight that early again.

(insert deep sigh here) ... taxis drivers. Everywhere.

Glad to hear it all worked out for you. Should we put you on a regular schedule and send a reminder every six months or so? As the pain wears off it's easy to forget.
