FROM NAPOLI TO SORRENTO : TRAIN, FERRY OR CAR?

Once you have reached Napoli Centrale station you have three choices on how to get to Sorrento:
  • Circumvesuviana : a local train that, in 70 minutes, will take you directly to Sorrento. It is reasonably cheap but crowdy and a bit slow. You can purchase a ticket in one of the newspaper stands in the station; Sorrento is the final stop on the line. A good alternative to Circumvesuviana train is Campania Expess  which takes you to Sorrento in less time, in a more comfortable way but it will cost you twice the fare of Circumvesuviana (around 8 euros) .
