      Bus to Salerno

      Positano Oct 4, 2016 at 10:23 AM

      Have booked a 9:52am train from Salerno and am staying in Positano. Should we be able to make it using the buses or would it be wiser to spend the night before in Salerno?

    • Amalfi base in early April

      Sorrento Oct 18, 2016 at 4:57 PM


      My fiance and I are planning out the details of our honeymoon, and will have 4 nights (2 full days, 2 partial days) to spend in the Amalfi region in the beginning of April. We will head there from Rome, and need to go back to Rome at the end of our last day for our flight home.

      I've done a lot of research and I can't decide on the best city in the region to base ourselves; I'd appreciate some help in making that decisions. I am aware that it is low season and some hotels will be closed and the buses/ferries will be more limited.

      Things that we want to do/see (hopefully with fairly easy transport from our base) -
      - Pompeii
      - coastal views, hiking, +/- horseback riding if we can find somewhere reasonably priced and the weather cooperates
      - possibly Paestum (both ruins and mozzarella) - if we have time, not super high on the priority list
      - not sure about Capri, leaning against it

      Things we are less interested in -
      - shopping, souvenir shops
      - beach time (not the time of a year, not a priority)
      - high-end tourism/restaurants/bars
      - Naples

      Any pointers on where we should use as a homebase and how to spend our days with these things in mind? Sorrento is what I've heard is the easiest base, but I've also been reading about some of the smaller towns being potential options (Vietri Sul Mare near Salerno, others) - what is the best choice given time of year and ease of transport?

      Park & Ride Naples?

      Naples Sep 29, 2016 at 11:10 AM

      We are planning to stay outside of Naples, and then drive part way in when we need to. Is there a good place to park where we can then easily catch a bus or metro further into the centre?

      buffalo farm tour price

      by primocat Online Now Sep 6, 2015 at 11:54 AM

      I really could not find any indication of price on the buffalo farm website, but then everything was in Italian, so I could have just missed something. Does anyone know relatively recent prices, and how far in advance would you need to book it. I am just wondering if I need bother about sorting it before I get to Italy, or whether I could ask my hotel to help with it?

      I will be having a day trip to see the ruins of Paestum and would also like to visit the Buffalo Farm there as well. Is it possible to visit the farm without a tour guide and also, is it possible to walk there from the ruins.

      Paestum Ruins

      by aussolo Online Now May 19, 2015 at 12:05 AM

      Thank you members for your information on transport to Paestum from Salerno. I had a look at the area around the station in Paestum and wonder is it safe for me to walk to the ruins on my own.

      Is it possible to do a day trip from Sorrento to Paestum, stopping on Amalfi Coast & Salerno as well? Is it possible using public transport or should we do an organised tour?

      Paestum temples

      by Turska Online Now Mar 7, 2012 at 3:45 AM

      I have red now many Paetum pages at VT and at internet elsewhere, and none of them seem to tell how the temple area at Paestum is open. Should I belive it is open allways then? Wouldn´t want to go by train first to Napoli (from Sorrento) and then tuo Paestum, and find out it´s closed..

    • Rome To Paestum?

      by asaustrup Online Now Feb 13, 2011 at 1:01 PM

      We are arriving in Rome (airport) at 8:00 am from the states and want to immediately head south to see Paestum, Sorrento/Amalfi, Pompeii, and Naples over the next week.

      I had the idea that we may as well travel as far south as we are going (Paestum) and then work our way back north. Can you get fairly direct train from Rome to Salerno and then transfer in Salerno for Paestum and make the whole trip in maybe 4 hours or so?

      Is this reasonable or a crazy idea?

      We will arrive in Paestum with our luggage by train.
      Is there a possibility for deposit our luggage while we visit the site ?
      Alternatively we plan to stay overnight . What is the best possibility for a transfer from the Station to Hotel Villa Rita .
      Do you have a hotel recommendation better than Hotel Rita ( 76 Euro B&B for a double room )?
