Who needs a ticket?
There are no discounts for age, neither for children nor people over 60. In general, though you need to check with the individual transport companies, children under 1m tall don’t have to pay for a ticket. If you are travelling with a pushchair/stroller, it must be kept folded up for the length of the journey and the child/children must be carried.
If you are travelling with animals, it is best to check with the specific company. The MetroNapoli website (which covers some buses, trams, lines 1 and 6 of the metro and 4 funiculars) states that: It is possible to bring one dog per passenger aboard, provided that the animal is small or medium size (Art. 7, par. 4 of law 16 of the Campania Region of 24/11/2001 defines “small” as a dog not exceeding 2 Kg, and “medium” as a dog not exceeding 8 Kg), equipped with a leash and muzzle and held at all times by the owner so as to not disturb other passengers. In such cases the pet may travel free of charge. It is also possible to transport small pets in containers not exceeding the dimensions 70x50x30 cm. It is forbidden to transport large animals, with the exception of Seeing Eye dogs for the blind, transported free of charge as a result of their special function. The passengers who bring such pets aboard will be held responsible for all damages to the train car, other passengers, and their belongings.
Buying a ticket
Hourly, daily, weekend and monthly tickets can be purchased at any Tobacco Shop (Tabaccheria). There are also ticket machines at many of the railway, metro and cable railway stations as well as at select bus stops throughout the city. Monthly tickets can only be purchased between the last four days of the month preceding the month of validity and the first two days of the month of validity. They are available at most Tobacco Shops.
Hourly, daily and weekend tickets must be validated upon use in the electronic ticket machines located on the buses and in the train stations. If a ticket machine is out of order you must validate your ticket by writing the day, month and hour on the back of the ticket in the space provided. Monthly tickets must also be validated on the first day they are used.
