It was very stressful at the beginning, we couldn’t get on the first train to Sorrento because it was very full and no one would let us on. We felt very unsafe at the train station, and we had no idea what was going on....More

Train from Naples to Sorrento to be avoided at all costs. Packed full of pickpockets , locals and African robbers. No police presence . Probably taking a share of the profits.

In other parts of Italy, the train service is good, modern and punctual. This, however, is quite different. EVERY train is late. But because ALL the trains are late, they run at the correct intervals. So basically, ignore the timetable, turn up at the station...More

Booked travel online on their Campania Special Tourist Service. Disappointing. The reservations shown on the printed booking sheet don't mean a thing. Its first come first served to get a seat and they only open one set of doors on each of the two carriages...More

We took the Circumvesuviana from Sorrento to Pompei scavi today. Cost was under €10.00 for the two of us, round trip. The train was clean inside, no garbage to be seen. We felt very safe at all times. A pair of local musicians busked on...More

I would use the Trainline EU app to purchase your tickets as it saves queuing and you don't have to print anything off as the tickets are held on your phone. I just made sure that I had downloaded the tickets at the hotel... More
