I will arrive at Ciampino Airport at 11:20 am from Madrid and will like to buy train tickets to Salerno on line. But not sure how long it will take to get to Roma Termini from Ciampino to be able to buy train ticket on line for the Freccuarissa train. First I don't know if I can buy train tickets from Ciampino to Roma termini on-line. Neither how long it will take from Ciampino Airport to train station. Playing safe I was thinking to buy ticket to depart from Roma Termini to Salerno at 13:45 hrs, non stop, but not sure if is too tight. Next train is at 14:25hrs. Anyone have done this can tell me if is safe to buy tickets at 13:45
Any recommendation on what is better to bring to Italy. I'm not sure if is better to bring plenty of euro or travelers check. I will like to know what is safer to deal with to pay for goods, transportation and accommodation. Some body told me that American Express have a prepaid debit card. I will be based on Salerno for the first leg of my trip then Rome. Can I use my ATM debit card to get euros? I also read that in some hotels and B&B does not accept credit cards.
I'm planning to be in Roma/Naples and Salerno during the first week of May 2014 vacationing. I'm on a small budget and will like to know if anyone had any experience with the concept of Bed & Breakfast in Italy. Any recommendation will be great. The plan is to spend most of the time in Salerno but will try to venture into the surrounding areas like Pompeii and Amalfi.
I´ll arrive at "Aeroporto Internazionale di Napoli" on saturday the 26th of october at ~13:45 and have to reach "84098 - Faiano Salerno Costa d'Amalfi Airport" the same day. No problems during the week - but there is differing information concerning the bus connection....
Can pleeeease somebody who knows this route tell me correct departure times and where to change the bus for "Pontecagnano"?
thanking you in anticipation,
I have been warned by many of my friends and the internet to stay away from Naples and Sorrento due to the high crime rate and pick pocketer's. Does anyone know anything about traveling to Salerno and is it safer? I will be traveling alone and I would prefer not to have to worry about being robbed. Thank you.
We will be arriving by cruise ship to Salerno for one day and would like to go to Positano. We could leave Salerno about 8AM and need to be back from Positano by 5:30.
Would the ferry boat or the buses be a better choice?
Can you walk from the cruise shop dock to the ferry dock or the bus?
Thanks so much.

I want to visit Amalfi,salerno in July. plz suggest an indian restaurant in amalfi,positono or salerno, if exists.
When researching train schedules on the Italia Rail site, i see there are 3 stations listed for Salerno: Salerno, Salerno Duomo Via, and Salerno Irno. Is there a map somewhere that shows me exactly where each of these are located? I am going to be staying at the Hotel Plaza. I know there is a station very close to it but does anyone know which one it is?
hello, sorry if this has been posted elsewhere! have just booked flights for my parents to Naples, they are heading for the war cemetery in Salerno and we plan to book a hotel there for them. They are seasoned package tourists and happy to go it alone but but only if we have it sorted for them! i'd like some ideas on how they should travel from Naples airport to Salerno,bus,train etc??
Also,if we were to book them a hotel in Sorrento instead, so they could make a holiday out of it, would they be able to travel to Salerno easily?
many thanks as any help would be fabulous.
Hello to All -
My wife and I will be coming to the Amalfi Coast in early July with nothing but a couple of backpacks and a tent. We fly into Rome and plan on taking the train from Rome to Salerno, with our final destination being a campsite in Minori. We arrive in Rome at 15.45 and I have looked into trains that leave at 17.30 and arrive in Salerno around 19.30 or 20.00. Now I am looking to find the best way to get from Salerno to Minori... bus, taxi, other? I am thinking bus, but haven't been able to locate anything online and was wondering if you would be so kind to tell me if this is possible and how frequent I can expect there to be buses - as we are arriving in Salerno around 20.00.
Also, I am not 100% sure we will be able to make the campsite by the time it is closed for the night we arrive, so if you have any suggestions along that route of a cheap place to stay for one night please feel free to share
Thank you in advance!!
I will be staying in Positano and I've heard an alternate way to get to Rome is to take a ferry to Salerno and then a train from there to Rome. Has anyone tried this and is it a good way to go?
Every trip when I arrive in Rome I take a bus,right outside the airport to Salerno.I am arriving on Sunday and would like to know what time the bus leaves the Rome airport.
Anybody knows when is going to be ready Salerno's airport?
Any news welcome!
I am planning a trip next spring. I would like to visit Rome for a few days and then travel down to Amalfi Coast given my family heritage is from the town of Amalfi. Where is the best location to stay and what is the best mode of travel? Should I rent a car or use other forms of transportation. I also plan to visit Pomepii, Positano etc. Any suggestions would be helpful.
OK I was in Salerno and really enjoyed it. I was just 3 days so I didn't move basically out of the center (pedestrian area and old part of town mainly).
My question are,
1) How is the rest of the town in direction south, but without leaving the town (Cristoforo Colombo - Leucosia - Clark - Salvador Allende?) It looks like the town continues about 5 kilometres more in the map. What happens 2 - 3 - 5 km from the center?
2) Does the city change? If it does in which way?
3) Is there seaside also there, I've seen one after the Piazza della Concordia but didn't know if continued all the way south or what, it was pretty rainy and the sea wasn't calm when I was there (in December). Is there seaside all the way those 5 kms in Summer? How crowded they get? Are there hotels too, which ones?
I want to know about this especific area, the rest of the city of Salerno SOUTH out of the center, not about what is before, going to Naples, that I already know.
Thanks a lot!
I would like to visit Salerno sometime between Nov-Dec for 3-4 days.
Just want to hang out a bit there to get away from colder Germany, and basically eat good and walk a bit around (NOT to visit museums, etc at this time) to relax a bit from work.
My questions are:
1) How do I get from Naples airport to Salerno?
2) Which hotels you recomend me to be in a nice area (next to the see?) with many restaurants and safe (not looking for youth hotels) under 100 a night (I've seen that hotels are much less than this in general but just in case I mention it).
3) any extra comments, things I should know about the place, whatever, are all welcome!
I will be vacationing in Praiano this coming September and I would like to visit friends in Cava dei Tirreni. I know there is a bus that goes along the coast to Salerno, but is there a train from Salerno to Cava? My friends live in the old part of cava. I would appreciate any travel tips. Thank you
I will be in Amalfi in early/mid May and am thinking of getting a tattoo while there (I already have several, so this isn't a new thing) - does anyone know of a particular (reputable) place to go or have tips on choosing a place (i.e. uses new, sealed needles) and what prices start at in general? Is there any tipping protocol?
Any help here is much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
We a traveling from Positano to Salerno by bus, and then taking the train to
sicily. How far is the bus station to the train station.
We will be on a cruise in October that will be in the port of Naples for one day. We would like to see Hurculanueum and the Amalfi coast. It seems like that would be a tough trip on a good day. Our ship offers this tour (Pompeii instead) plus a lunch too. I think it would be a very hurried up experience. We want to spend less time eating and more time exploring the sites. We think doing the sites on our own will give us an oppertunity to see more of what we want to see. The only problem is trying to figure out the traveling modes. From what I can tell the train to Serrento then the bus to Amalfi will be at least 2 1/2 hours one way (total of 5 hrs of just riding) We then don't have time to see Hurculaneum. The Metro del Mare is about 2 hour one way but I can't figure out the time schedule from their chart. Any help would be appreciated. Is a shorter route Via a Northern way. Train to Salerno then bus to Almafi. Can this be done? Is it worth it.
