We are looking at taking a shore excursion from our cruiseship in Naples. We definitely want to see Pompeii, but we have the choice of Pompeii and some time in Sorrento or Pompeii and a drive along the Amalfi Coast. Which would be the nicer choice.
Is there a good way to reach the Roman sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum from Naples by public transport or would you recommend to hire a car?
We are staying in central Naples (Near the main station) in March and will have a Friday afternoon free.
Would welcome any suggestions as the best way to use this time, wander the centro storico? Or get a taxi to the coast? Or?
I'm planning to visit South of Italy next week. Overall I've got two weeks so I'd like to fly to Naples and eventually make my way down to Lipari. I thought I could base myself there and do some island hopping before returning to Naples to catch my flight back home.
From other threads, I understand that people would like to spend a couple of days in Naples, (perhaps visit Ischia and Procida ) stay 1-2 nights each in Tropea and Maratea to see the beautiful beaches, maybe 2 nights in Taormina before taking the hydrofoil to Lipari from Milazzo. It would be a tremendous help if you could help me out with my itinerary. How many days/nights do you think I should spend in each town and from Lipari what would be best alternatives for daily trips to other islands?
I've also got another option where I could take the overnight ferry from Corfu to Bari. Take the train from Bari to see Matera and probably stay overnight before heading to Salerno, Naples and eventually make my way down to Lipari?
Would I be better off renting a car from Naples or would you advise bus and train for the whole trip?
Looking for best service at teh lowest price as I am traveling alone - September 5, 2013
I am horrified of hearing these things of Naples and seriously thinking of canceling my visit in Naples due for the day after tomorrow. I am a woman traveling solo,,What do you think?
I was just in Naples on July7 and shopped for great women's clothes at a small boutique. I brought back lots of stuff for my 2 adult daughters. The store is IC SRL on 84 Chiaia., 80121 Napoli. The tel # is 08134,26.725. I would like to order some clothes from them and ship it to canada. Does anyone know how I can contact the stores by email?
Do the sightseeing buses come near or to the ports of Rome, Naples, and Florence so passengers can hop on?
Hi! We are a family of four who will travel from Perugia to the Amalfi Coast, but we plan to quickly visit Naples and Pompei. We will be travelling by car at this point. Any recommendations on where to stay? In Naples, closeby?? In large cities, I prefer taking public transportation, so a hotel or apartment close to bus or metro stops would be interesting for us. Thanks!
Come fare se si arriva in serata con i trasporti interni ?
Dunque arrivare a Napoli verso le ore 21 e andare con un autobus/treno fino a Melfi ? c'è un servizio di notte ? grazie
hello, we will be traveling from Rome via train to Naples and then on to Minori. We would love to take a ferry for the last leg. Is this possible? Is it easy from the Napoli train station?
Any help would be appreciated. we will be traveling on a weekday -midday in July.
Hi everybody!!! I will spend 6 days in Napoli next June and July. I would like to know how many days should I spend visiting the city and how many in a day trip to: Ischia? Ravello? Herculano? I have been in Sorrento, Capri, Amalfi, Positano and Pompey 10 years ago. I would like to go again to some places, but I dont know if I have enough time to go. I really apreciate any advice!!
Hello everybody!!! i am arriving to stazione di treni Centrale Napoli and have to go to Hotel Neapolis in Via Francesco del Giudice and Via Tribunali. Which is the cheapest and fastest way to go to the hotel? Many thanks for any advice!!!
Some of my friends will be on holiday in Positano, in august, and we would like to take a one day trip to Napoli. We will arrive with our cars, but we would like to find some public parking, to leave the cars during visiting the city. Does anybody know some parking, on the way to Sorento (positano), easy to reach and safe, and close to some public transportation?
My husband and I will be in Naples for four nights in September. I feel like I need some advice on which would be the best neighbourhood(s) for us to stay in. We're in our late 20s and have traveled extensively in Italy and Europe, but never been to Naples. I'm not paranoid, but I am aware of Naples' reputation, so would like to stay in a neighbourhood where I feel safe. From what I gather, I shouldn't stay around the train station, and maybe not even in the Centro Storico?
We will be visiting the Archeological Museum, and will be taking a day trip to Mt. Vesuvius. We will probably also go to Pompeii again.
Thanks in advance!
I should be in Naples when there is a home game soon could anyone tell me if tickets are easily bought at the stadium or are there any outlets in the city?
We will be flying from Paris to Naples. What is the easiest/fastest/cheapest way to get to the port to take a hydrofoil to Capri? Also, what is the name of the port we need to go to to take a hydrofoil to Capri? I've read that taxis can run around 40.00 EUR from the aiport to the port. We would like something a little cheaper than that but something that doesn't stop a lot either. Thanks!
Hello, I intend to arrive in Acerra
on Christmas Eve or maybe a day before. My problem is the arrival in
Napoli, which will be probably around 2.00 a.m. CET/HEC (1.00 a.m. GMT).
Can anyone suggest
first transport to Acerra in the morning? And where could I spend few
hours relatively safe ? (24/24 cafe, maybe). Help me on this, thk. u.
Place of disembarkment (from bus) at arrival: Via Amerigo Vespucci (most likely), or maybe P-zza Garibaldi (v. staztione di Napoli Centrale). I also understand that there is a problem with transportation in the Christmas Day.
Prompt me on email@example.com, pls. thk.u.

Do some of the trains on the Circumvesuviana line only stop in certain stations? How will I know which ones?
I was trying to get to Via Gianturca to check out a hotel but it bypassed the station which means I had an hour long trip for no reason since I had to get off at the first available stop and return to Napoli Central. It was getting dark by then and I didn't fancy wandering around in it!
Hello, we arrive in Naples on 2nd October on our cruise ship NCL Epic. We have been in this port previously and on this occasion we visited Pompei. This time we would like to see Sorrento/Amalfi drive. Any suggestions on transport? As ever, the cruise ship excursions are expensive, but we are worried that if we take a private excursion and then get caught up in the traffic then we could miss our departure time. Its always a worry. What should we do in Sorrento? Just walk around or are there lots of must sees? Hope we get some nice weather here at this time of year. Thanks and regards, Alison
Hi everybody!!! I would like to know which is the safer way to go from the Naples train station (I will be coming from Sicilia) to my hotel in Via Francesco Del Giudice 13. It is safe to take a taxi in the rail station for a woman travelling alone with 2 piece of lugagge? Many thanks for any advice!!!
After reading all the posts, I am still very nervous (and dreading) having to fly out of Naples in October 2012. I will travel by train from Sorrento on a Wednesday and fly out the next morning early (4:00 am check-in). I thought to stay at a hotel near the airport... I had reservations at the Charming Int'l Hotel, but just got notice that they went out of business. They suggested the Millenium Gold Hotel nearby. Anyone know about the airport hotels? If I check into a hotel after arriving, then try to go out to see the city and then get back to hotel, is that reasonable? I don't want to be out after dark. Is the airport far from town? Sorry to sound like a chicken...but I guess I am!
Can someone advise me exactly where to purchase the Artecard in Naples Airport. I seem to miss things right in front of my eyes unless I know exactly where they are. Many thanks
My grandfather came to the USA (alone) via Naples from Coreno,Italy when he was 16 many years ago. It's a small town (approx 850 families) about 50 miles from Naples and I know from Internet searching, the town directory and Ancestry searches that there are many families there with our family name connected to my grandfather. We will be arriving in Naples by cruise ship. We have secured a driver and our car rental is from 9:30 to 3:30. (We arrive at 8 and depart at 5) Can anyone tell me what the roads are like to Coreno from Naples and is the time we have reasonable. This is our 50th wedding anniversary trip and I have waited many years to go to Coreno. I am so proud of what my grandfather accomplished that I want to see where his journey began. Any info or suggestions would be appreciated.
I do not know what hotel to choose: Hotel Piazza Bellini, or The Decumani Hotel de Charme?
It seems that Decumani has larger rooms, but the location is in not very pleasant and safe area.
I saw only very positive opinions about Bellini and its location.
I understand that they are located not far one from another and close to many sightseeing’s.
Is it really a big difference between the location of these two hotels, from point of view of safety and cleaning?
Which of them do you recommend?
Does anyone have any experience with "Tours of Pompeii" (toursofpomeii.com)?
They've gotten great reviews on TripAdvisor but can't find any other place with reviews. Help!
Can someone please tell me when arriving from sorrento to Naples by train will I be coming in on the lowest level of the train station? And where would I go in order to get a train to Rome?. And how long would it take to walk to where I need to catch the train, do I need to have a lot of time between trains? Thank you for your help.
I'll be traveling from Rome to Sorrento in September. My travel agent has suggested the Eurorail from Rome to Naples, and then said we're "on our own" to arrange transportation to Sorrento from there. Based on our hotel website, it seems the best way to complete this trip is by using the local train "Circumvesuviana" to Sorrento, then take a bus or taxi to the hotel. Does this seem like the best way? Can anyone tell me how often this local train runs? And the price of a ticket?
I need to tavel from Rome to naples in June. Could someone please advise the best/quickest way to do this.
Many thanks in advance!
First time flying out of Naples and I know we will have to pay for extra luggage and wondered if anyone knows if it is a separate counter or does the check in agent handle it all at check in. Lawt year in Catania we had to go to two differrent places to check in and pay for the extra baggage. Also I hear the naples airport has been re-done and is really well organized.
We will be in Sorrento and wondering if anyone knows of a walking tour. We are thinking of possibly taking a boat to Naples and would like to join a walking tour for a few hours if anyone knows of one
