Travel from Rome to Sorrento

by valscamp Online Now Feb 19, 2012 at 2:33 AM

We are staying in Rome for 2 nights and then travelling to Sorrento for 2 nights. We wish to visit Montecassino and Pompeii on our way to our accommodation in Sorrento but will have our luggage with us. Can you assist me with a travel company who would be able to help us.

Many thanks
Valerie

    luggage can [actually must] be kept at both entrances in Pompei and it can be visited on the way to Sorrento
    imo going to Montecassino it is better as daytrip from Rome.

    I can't help with a travel company but cgf is correct that there is a luggage storage facility at P{ompeii.

    You can easily take the train from Rome to Napoli Centrale station (takes just over an hour on the fastest trains) then walk (undercover) to Napoli Garibaldi station. The cheap, frequent Circumvesuviana trains which run from there stop at Pompeii Scavi station (fare will be less than 5 euro, journey time around 30 minutes), directly opposite the site entrance. Pompeii is on the Naples>Sorrento line.

    After you have left your bags and explored Pompeii (allow at least 3 hours for this...it is a huge site) you ca take the Circumvesuviana onward to Sorrento (again, less than 5 euro and around 30 minutes).

    Train times, details and fares Rome>Naples in English:

    No need to book tickets online in advance. Ticket machines are easy to use and have English language options. Buy them on the day you travel or, if you prefer, a day or so in advance from the station.

    Circumvesuviana timetables in English:

    Trying to fit in Montecassino as well is simply not feasible, imo, unless you are happy to pay a large amount of money for a car+ driver for the whole day.

    From Rome, you can take the train to Cassino (from just over an hour) and then the bus to Montecassino (or a taxi). Bus times here:
