    • Rome to Amalfi Italy transportation

      Amalfi May 13, 2015 at 7:36 AM

      I am travelling from Rome to Sorrento and wanted someone to check to make sure the information for our vacation there is accurate. My travel is in October 2015.

      Fiumicino Airport to train station options - You can reach the Railway Central Station with a bus, train or cab from the airport.

      Train - One Way Fare: about €14 Adult, The Leonardo Express Airport Train is a dedicated airport train taking 30 minutes to reach the centre of Rome (Termini Station) with a frequency every 30 minutes. The Leonardo Express is the fastest and most frequent and most comfortable public transport transfer between Fiumicino Airport and Central Rome (Termini Station). The service is a dedicated airport train and runs non stop, every 30 minutes. The capacity and ticketing facilities means no prior booking required, journey time of 30 minutes with trains every 30 minutes, the first departure from Roma Termini is at 5:50 and last at 22:50 and the first departure from the airport is at 6:38 and last at 23:38.

      At Fiumicino Airport the train station is well signposted within the passenger terminals. It’s a 5-10 minute walk. The way is totally undercover using moving walkways, escalators/lifts. There are ticket machines, the official ticket desk and three or four other independent outlets that all sell tickets for the Leonardo Express train. Note: The station has three platforms and other local trains also terminate here. So do check which platform the next Leonardo Express train departs from, even if there is only one train in the station.

      Rome Termini Station - Termini Station as well as being the main railway station for Rome also houses the main local bus station and is the hub where the Metro system radiates out from. It’s also the biggest district of hotel accommodation for all budgets. It’s a very convenient place to stay. The station is like a small city with a large shopping centre, countless restaurants and facilities like left luggage.

      Rome to Sorrento - Rome take the high speed train to Naples cost about $43 Euro. Updated fares and cost at choose "Napoli Centrale" as your destination. No needs to purchase tickets in advance just buy them from the ticket machine the day of travel. Ticket machines have English language options are easy to use.

      Garibaldi / Central Station Naples - Central Station (Stazione Centrale) is the main Naples train station just to the east of the city centre. The Circumvesuviana Trains stop at a physically separate set of platforms to the main train station with their own separate ticket barriers. Circumvesuviana can be crowded in rush hours and when schools and colleges finish (2 p.m.). Best to avoid these times if you have bags. Although you never leave the Central Station building the Circumvesuviana platforms are called Garibaldi Station which can be confusing. Once you get off your train at Central Station you just turn left at the end of the platform and keep going following the signs above.

      Naples to Sorrento - Sorrento can only be reached by taking the private 'Circumvesuviana Line' from Naples. Tickets can only be purchased locally upon arrival. You can buy tickets at the station but note you have to pay cash, no credit cards, unlike the national railways. Circumvesuviana trains depart out of the Piazza Garibaldi station in Naples which is conveniently located in the lower level of the same building as the Naples Centrale Station. Go down to the lower level and catch the local, Circumvesuviana train to Sorrento Cost about 5 euros. Trains between Naples and Sorrento depart once every half hour and take about 55 to 68 minutes in duration.

      Sorrento to Pompeii - Getting to Pompeii and/or Herculaneum is very easy and inexpensive by train from Sorrento... Go to the station and ask for round-trip tickets on the Circumvesuviana: you'll want the Napoli-Sorrento line, trains run frequently (although not 24/7) and the trip will take about 30-40 minutes from either place. You'll want to get off at the POMPEII SCAVI-VILLA DEI MISTERI station (scavi means ruins), which is about 50 yards or so in front of the Porta Marina entrance. The POMPEII stop is for the "modern" city and it's a longer walk, although do-able, to an entrance from there.

      The train station in Pompeii is a short walk from the city center and to the archeological site, this station is very small. The entrance to Pompeii is about 50m away from the station and there's a Tourist Information office further down the street. If you need any maps, it can't get wrong once you get off the train and walk from the station to the center. Pompeii is very small easy to navigate on foot

      Circumvesuviana transport information - A 24 hr ticket at the Circumversuvian counter is available for €6.30 (per person). Remember to validate the ticket. Circumvesuviana trains don't have restrooms.

      Salerno to Minori

      by nalahacjr Online Now May 18, 2010 at 1:00 PM

      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!!

      Specially for the locals (but not only)...questions

      by brandonmarlo Online Now Jan 4, 2009 at 8:20 PM

      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!

      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!
