The train is packed and be prepared to stand all the way to Pomeii. Wear comfortable shoes and you will be fine. I still cannot get over the price, €3.80 per person one way to Sorrento. It takes about an hour by train but we...More

if you're open minded and fairly independent, the Circumvesuviana trains are a great getaround if you're based in Naples and want cheap train services to tourist sites. partner and I were so surprised at the cost... around 11 Euros for the both of us for...More

I’m not sure I’d want to travel on it late at night. But for a family of five it cost us much less than a single organised transfer from Sorrento to Pompeii. And we had the flexibility to leave when we wanted. Forget the tour,...More

Cicumvesuviana is a convenient and cheap way to travel from Napoli Centrale to Pompeii ruins. If you are arriving from a long distance train on TrenItalia, after getting off at Napoli Centrale, walk towards the Napoli Plaza Garibaldi direction. The Circumvesuviana is at the lower...More

Crowded, graffiti-covered on the outside (and making some station nameboards unreadable, so count the number of stops to your destination), doubtless with a risk of pickpockets - but it is very cheap, fairly frequent, and the stops are conveniently located for Pompei and Herculaneum. Tender...More

Great service to Sorrento but be very cautious. There are many pick pockets about constantly eyeing up people's bags and back packs. Not so bad if you manage to get a seat but standing makes you very vulnerable. Some will cough straight in your face...More

OK, the carriages are covered in graffiti but apart from that, a brilliant rail system. It links Naples to Sorrento and the sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii, amongst others. An hours journey cost me about £2:75, far better value than Southern Tail, and prettier views!

It's great service between Sorrento and Naples. Service runs approx every 30min. Train ticket cost only €4/single journey. If you want to visit Pompeii, Herculenium or Mount Vesuvius this service is the best option. It might be very busy especially in the summer months.

Docked at the cruise terminal. Thought that we could take the tram to Garibaldi but the area outside the terminal is under construction so there is no tram running. Took the metro outside the terminal-about two blocks from the entrance to the terminal-to Garabaldi for...More

Count the changes the ticket sales clerk return to you. They often give you less changes than it should be. They hope you don't pay attention, or you simply don't know how much the tickets cost. You should probably just have exact amount to minimize...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
