Ready, Set, Go! What you need to start living in Italy
NSA Naples Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) conducts bi-weekly in-person AO at the Support Site. Once you arrive in Naples, you will begin your experience at the Support Site Movie Theater by having lunch and being welcomed by the CO and other Quality of Life departments. You’ll get a sense of what living in Italy is like from our Intercultural Relations (ICR) specialists. We’ll then take you on an experiential tour of nearby locations. The tour is designed to peak your interests regarding services available and the vibrant culture that Naples offers.  
Prior to your arrival, there are some things we can work on that will help with your successful transition. We recommend that you register with our team, so we can assist with a smooth process in collaboration with your Sponsor. Your sponsor will play a key role in helping you navigate the steps for coming to Naples. Registration can be completed via email/phone.

Area Orientation updates as of 15 May 2022

We are pleased to announce that in-person rotator pick-ups have returned for newly arriving community members at the Capo Air Terminal.  As such, large bus service to the Navy Lodge at Support Site is no longer necessary, and a new – more personalized and reimbursable– service is available.  Sponsors and Commands can utilize this new service immediately, starting with the next rotator, which is set to arrive this weekend, Nov. 13/14.

The face-to-face welcome and support that Sponsors provide is critical to getting newcomers quickly settled, but we realize not all Sponsors have enough vehicle space for new families and their luggage, pets, etc.  To ensure adequate resources are available to Sponsors, NSA Naples has coordinated base access for the taxi service “Muto Travel”.  Sponsors should make arrangements in advance at +39-339-161-8395 or +39-366-521-6413, or  As an additional service, the NSA Naples Public Works Department will provide utility vans for excess luggage and pet crates, based on the # of passengers traveling on the rotator.  This “free to newcomers” service will help ease the burden of these bulkier items, while Commands and Sponsors ensure Sailors and their families get the proper welcome they deserve.
Finally, we understand anything can happen, so our USO volunteer family has graciously committed to helping new arrivals get in touch with Sponsors if the Sponsor is delayed while getting to the Capo air terminal.  As always, your Command Sponsors are the key to making sure our newest community members get off to the right start.  NSA Naples is proud to continue serving each of you, and we hope these options and services make it easier to provide first-class service to our Sailors and their families.
