The best and cheapest way to visit the likes of Pompeii herculaneum and naples is to get the Circumvesuviana train. The station is just a short walk from the centre or Sorrento (at the top of the road opposite piazza A. Lauro) tickets can be purchased from the station (either the shop before you enter or the ticket office) and you can travel for 100 minutes for 1.80 euro. So to get to Pompeii or herculaneum it costs 1.80 euro one way to get to naples you must purchase a 3.20 euro ticket.

The time starts from the moment you put your ticket into the machine in the station (whith validates it and prints the time on it) so most locals will wait untill the last minute but even if you have just missed one train as you go through you will still have plenty of time to get on the next one and complete your journy before your time runs out. Most locals will carry spare tickets so should their time run out they can put another into the machine on the train (if you can find it )

We found the train to be easy to use, Fast and efficient a copy of the time table is usefull and cam be obtained from http://www.sorrentotourism.com or here at the official site http://www.massalubrense.it/circum.htm
