Capri/Naples Railway station to Port of Civitavecchia

by rodtatchell

I want to travel on the 14th June 2008 with my wife, 30 year old son and his wife from Capri to a cruise ship at the Port of Civitavecchia arriving by about 3 pm that day. I am able to arrange to get to Naples Railway station by Hydrofoil and taxi. What is the most efficient/best station to travel to with a minimum of train changes and best method to get to the port, presumably by taxi from the station.

trenitalia is your best friend in this situation

you need to get to Civitavecchia - and then a taxi to your cruise ship

please allow plenty of time for strikes (sciopero) delays (en retardo) and no taxis available

While there are a few direct trains from Naples to Civitavecchia during the day, they don't appear to be any during your desired timeframe. If you do as Jen suggests - visit - you will see that the latest solution is to leave Napoli Centrale at 11:48 on the Alta Velocita' 9440 (arr Rome at 13:15), then take in Rome the InterCity (IC) train Carignano (#526) which leaves at 13:46 and arrives in Civitavecchia at 14:32.

Or you can leave on the AV at 11:10 (#9608), arrive in Rome at 12:37, then at 13:09, take the regional train (#3258) that arrives in Civitavecchia at 14:15.

Once you are in Civitavecchia, the docks are only 10-15 minutes away from the station...if you have no I bet you'll want a taxi ;-). Note that in the summer of 2007, a VTer reported that the city set up a shuttle from the docks to the station...perhaps the converse will be working as well...but in any case, a taxi shouldn't be expensive...

but bill - having just got back from italy and reeling from the plentiful suprises italy always offers the stranger - This is Italy and it is exciting -
suggest the poster be ahead of the game and arrive well before he needs to - be awful if he misses his ship

hahaha, Jen! Actually, that's why I suggested the earlier train as well...and I don't know how early the OP can make it over to Napoli Centrale from Capri anyway...still, you're right that there's no point in waiting until the last minute ;-)

We sailed from Civitavecchia. The railway station in next to the port.
Although we did not travel by train we chatted with many who did. You could walk to the cruise ship terminal in 10 minutes, but a taxi will take you there for very little expence in a coulpe of minutes.
Enjoy your cruise, we did

Travel Tips for Naples

Castel Nuovo.

by oneonta_ni

This castle was originally built in 1282 and is now mainly used as offices. You can walk around most of it, though and the Museo Civico is there. The museum itself is not overly exciting but there are some nice views of the bay. In the chapel are paintings by Luca Giordano and marble fragments like the one pictured here.

Neapolis Station – Archaeological Yards

by egicom05

If you are looking for a suggestive way through hundreds of years of history, you can find it in a new part of National Archaeological Museum. This section of the museum is placed in a wide show-room (free entrance) at the exit “Via Foria” within the Tube “Museo” station (Linea 1).
We try to be your virtual guide.
During the excavations for the new Metro Station, parts of the old city were discovered. They date back to the Neolithic Age until the Middle Age.
A prehistoric discovery is a ploughed field. At the entrance of the museum there is a reconstruction of the original field. This archaeological find has survived years thanks to the muddiness of the soil.
Going forward trough the centuries, you find the Greek city. During the excavation, several fragments of vases of the VII and VI b.C. have been found. They are now placed inside a big and suggestive casket in the centre of the show-room. These vases testify the presence of handcraft workshop along the coast. These discoveries brought to light the line of the ancient harbour, the centre of the Mediterranean trade.
Roman elements are three boats that were used for trading and fishing, ruins of a temple that was used for the Isolympic Games (founded by Augustus), marble slabs that show the names of winners and a wonderful statue of the flying Goddess of Victory (the “Nike”).
The three boats are in an excellent state of preservation. After restoration, one of them will be exposed in a casket in the new metro-station. Several video displays are placed in the show-room to show the excavation phases and to explain the different techniques which have been used to preserve the findings.
A decorative fountain, which date back to the XIII a.C., has been found in a garden. On this fountain there is a design of a ship in procession towards the city, which is depicted as a bastion with towers. A plastic model is shown in the museum.

The food in Naples is...

The food in Naples is fantastic we ate in many restaurants dotted around the city and never had a bad meal.

While there you have to have a pizza or two and try the local wine. Pizza, pasta and pesto mmmm

Santa Restituta Church and excavations

by egicom05

Accessible from the Duomo's left nave is the Basilica of Santa Restituta, founded in the 4th century on the site of a former Temple of Apollo and rebuilt after the 1688 earthquake. It has ceiling paintings by Luca Giordano (1632 - 1705). To the back of the right nave is the Baptistery of San Giovanni in Fonte (fifth century). When you enter in it, watch the ceiling: you can admire a star shining blue sky mosaics that will take your breath away. These mosaics, are among the most precious ones, certainly more beautiful than the ones you can see in Rome and Ravenne.
On the left side of the Basilica you can access a little known but superb archeological area, dating from the Early Greek settlements to the High Middle Age. Upon descending the short stairway, you are left free to explore this hidden world. Since Santa Restituta escaves are not well known, it can happen that you are the only visitor and you will feel like an archeologist who has just discovered a new site: romans structures (opus reticolatum) dating from the first years of the Empire, remains of Greek walls, basis of masonry columns, mosaic pavement dating to the end of the 5th century which cover other more ancient mosaics datable to the 4th century. These older pavements are 14 centimeter lower and decorated with a series of circles and other motives (in the picture the two layers of mosaic pavement).

Chiesa di San Ferdinando

by rsleisk

San Ferdinando is in the area of Naples, that includes the Palazzo Reale, Piazza del Plebiscito, and the San Carlo opera house.

The church of San Ferdinando was built between 1628 and 1660 together with the convent. It was paid for by a Grammar school, the Compagnia di Gesu. The designers were Giovanni Giacomo Conforto and Cosimo Fanzago. 19th Century restoration changed the facade. When the Jesuits were exiled from the Kingdom of Naples governed by Borbone, the church was given to the Constantinian Cavalry and was dedicated, by way of thanks to the saint from whom King Ferdinando I received his name. In the church, popular with the Neapolitans and very well-attended, until a few years ago, there were spectacular religious events during Holy Week - artists from the San Carlo theatre performed Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. The interior is a Latin Cross with a central nave and side chapels.

The church was originally a Jesuit house of worship and was opened in 1665. It was originally dedicated to St. Francis Xavier, friend of St. Ignatius Loyola and one of the members of the first company of Jesuits. The original name of the church was, in fact, San Francesco Saverio. The interior of the church displays numerous works of art depicting the life and missionary activities of St. Francis Xavier. The church was rededicated to San Ferdinando when the Jesuits were expelled from Naples in 1767.
