Getting from Rome to Sorrento by Bus

The bus is one of the most convenient, economically speaking, ways to transfer from one place to another. From Rome to Sorrento there are a few bus rides a day and if you are not in a hurry and have a lot of luggage, it can be the best solution. As a student, I took the bus from Rome to Sorrento dozens of times. Mostly, it was a pleasant and enjoyable experience but some days of the week, holidays and specific times, I absolutely do not recommend it.

From Rome two different lines of buses lead to Sorrento centre: Marozzi and Flixbus, and both buses leave from Triburtina Station in Rome.

Marozzi

The Marozzi bus is one of Italy’s most popular bus providers and the bus line runs directly between Rome and Sorrento in 4 hours. Buses arrive and depart Piazza Tiburtina in Rome.

  • Ticket can be purchased online https://www.marozzivt.it , at the Rome Triburtina station and in travel agent offices and cost €19.
  • You can choose your own assigned seat on the bus when you purchase tickets (I recommend next to the window to enjoy the view) – seats number are above the seats.
  • The bus leaves from Roma Tiburtina Station at two different hours: 7 am and 3pm , except on Sundays that  has only one departure at 7am.
  • The ride takes approximately 4 hours but the trip length depends on the traffic on the highway.
  • The bus stops in five little towns (Castellammare, Vico Equense, Meta, Piano di Sorrento, Sant’agnello) before approaching Sorrento.
  • The bus makes a 15 minutes stop along the way at an Autogrill to use the rest rooms and buy food and drinks.
  • The Marozzi bus shows up only a few minutes before the departure time at the Rome Triburtina station.
  • If you are traveling with luggage, you will have to store them in the luggage compartment on the lower deck of the bus. With a small hand carry, there is overhead storage space on board the bus.
  • There is air-conditioning on the bus.
  • On Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday afternoons expect longer journeys, there may be delays.
  • There is no bathroom on board.

  • The total journey takes approximately 4 Hours and 15 Minutes. The time of arrival is at 12:15, depending on traffic on the highway.
