From the Airport

Shuttle: Alibus Shuttle Bus departs every 10 min. from the Naples International Airport and runs from 6:30a-11:30p.

Taxi: Travel by taxi is problematic at best due to incredibly high fares, reckless driving, and horrible traffic conditions. It is not a recommended form of transportation, but if you are going to take one, confirm that it is an authorized service. They are easily located outside the terminals.
