The Strategic Ring
The Metro Line 1 is, in the Municipal Plan of transport, the pillar of public transport, serving the metropolitan area of Naples, also thanks to the many interconnections with rail systems and park & ride areas north of the city that allow to leave your private vehicle in favor of public transport.
