Naples Airport and Transportation
Getting to and around Naples
ARRIVING IN NAPLES BY TRAIN
You'll most likely arrive in Naples by train from elsewhere in Italy. It's just 2.5 hours from Rome, and 8 hours from Milan. You'll be arriving at the Central Station in Piazza Garibaldi, from where you can take a taxi or a bus to your hotel. Alternatively, prebook a transfer from/to the station to/from your hotel:
Private Arrival Transfer from Station
Private Departure Transfer to Station
ARRIVING IN NAPLES BY AIRPLANE
If you're arriving by plane, you'll land in Capodichino Airport, where domestic flights connect Naples to Rome and other cities. From there, a 15-minute bus ride takes you to Piazza Garibaldi by the central train station, from where you can easily reach your hotel by public transportation.
Perhaps a better option is to prebook a transfer from/to the airport:
Private Arrival Transfer to Hotel
Private Departure Transfer to Airport
GETTING AROUND NAPLES AND GETTING TO THE AMALFI COAST
Getting around in the city is easy, although you'll have your nerves tested at rush hour. Avoid taking the bus at that time unless you don't mind being pushed and shoved around. Instead, use trams number 1 or 4 whenever you can, or take the metro.
To/From Amalfi: You may choose to book a transfer to your Amalfi hotel from your Naples hotel, Naples airport, or Naples railway station, as well as your return from Amalfi to Naples Airport, railway station, or hotel.
To/From Sorrento: If you're just visiting Sorrento instead, you have the following transfers:
Naples Airport, station, or hotel to your Sorrento hotel
Sorrento to Naples Airport, station, or hotel
To/From Positano or Ravello, you have the following transfer options:
Naples Airport to Positano or Ravello Private Arrival Transfer
Positano or Ravello to Naples Airport Private Departure Transfer
Driving around Naples is a true nightmare. Don't do it. However, do rent a car to drive through the breathtaking Amalfi Coast (you can pick up and drop off your car in Naples). You can also use the easy train service to reach many of the cliffside towns, but you'd be missing the views along the zigzagging way. Once in Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, or any other town, use your feet to get around -- these are all tiny towns.
To visit Pompeii, take the train from Naples. The archaeological site is located right outside the train station. A frequent train service will then take you back to Naples.
To get to Capri, take a short ferry ride from Naples or Sorrento. Capri is small enough to be explored on foot, although you'll need a bus to reach the center of town at the top of the hill from the ferry terminal.
