It's a good idea to book tickets for embarking your vehicle in advance so you can exit from the A1 highway and follow the "Napoli Porto" signs to pass the Bausan entrance directly and avoid traffic.
To reach the Calata di Massa pier from the center of the city, take the Pisacane entrance on Via Marina.

You can also embark your vehicle at the Pozzuoli port, avoiding the traffic in the center of Naples.
