"Circumvesuviana- the commuter train" The train Tip by monorailgold

The train, Pompeii: 34 reviews and 25 photos


Once you get to Naples on the train, you must still catch another train to the Pompeii Scavi ruins. This train is the circumvesuviana. It is downstairs in the train station and a roundtrip ticket will cost less than 5 euros. The train leaves every 30 minutes so it is never a long wait for the next one. Once you get on the train, pay attention to the stops. There is a list of the stops by all the doors and an announcement is made at each station. For the Pompeii ruins you want to get out at the Pompeii Scavi stop. This will put you almost at the ticket center to pompeii. In less than 5 minutes you can walk from the train station to the ruins. There is also a small restaurant and shop in the station. I would suggest buying a bottle or two of water as the restaurant inside pompeii, when open, is verrrry expensive.

To get back to the Naples station, you must go down a corridor that leads you under the tracks to the platform on the opposite side. This, too, comes every half hour.
