If you maintain situational awareness, pack and dress sensibly, use standard travel theft precautions and try to assimilate with the people you're visiting, you'll appreciate this train ride. We've been on it many times and had fun experiencing unfiltered Italy. It occasionally feels dangerous, but...More

We took the Circumvesuviana from Sorrento to Pompeii Scavi. And thank God we were lucky enough to arrive early and get on the train before everyone else. I was actually surprised how few people were there when we got on and I actually though it...More

I've ridden the metro in Paris, London, New York, Beijing, Chengdu, Montreal, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Mexico City, Berlin, San Fransisco, Munich, Rome, and Chicago, and this is by far the most depressing, run-down, and uncomfortable train ride in history. Even in early May, it's hot....More

I was leery about taking this rail service to/from Sorrento (to both Naples and Herculaneum), however I was pleasantly surprised by how efficient and harmless this service really is. I take public transportation in a major US city so I may not so easily scared,...More

Firstly please beware of Pick Pockets on this trip! They are everywhere and very slick. The train gets very full indeed, the modus operandi is to press against you with a light coat over their arm whilst they use the free hand to open zips...More

Certainly a bit of a shock having just got off the fantastic frecciarossa from Rome. It is basically a pretty grubby but functional commuter service between Naples and Sorrento that also serves the great archeological sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii. It's not run by Italian...More

Unless you want to go by bus, slow and dodgy, this is the only Sorrento peninsular railway to Naples. It is the pits! Some of the stations near Naples look like they are out of a Mad Max dystopian movie. The trains are little different,...More

The train is packed and be prepared to stand all the way to Pomeii. Wear comfortable shoes and you will be fine. I still cannot get over the price, €3.80 per person one way to Sorrento. It takes about an hour by train but we...More
