Naples, Pompei and Capri/Sorrento

by jimjo11

I will be in Naples from May 30 until June 2nd, and I am interested in going to Pompei, Capri and Sorrento.
What are some good Pompeii tour companies? Is it easy to get there and what is the best route and means of transportation.

Also, I want to go to Capri and Sorrento. Is there a frequent train schedule to those places and can I go to both Capri and Sorrento the same day?

How early do I have to be in Capri to be able to see the Blue Grotto and the island? Do you reccomend a Capri tour?

RE: Naples, Pompei and Capri/Sorrento

You don't need a tour to do these places, you can easily do them on your own. The local commuter train, called the Circumvesuviana, will take you to Pompei and Sorrento. You can take a boat from Sorrento or Naples to Capri.

The Circumvesuviana leaves from the basement (underground) level of the Naples Train Station. It runs every 20 to 30 minutes, and takes about 35-40 minutes to Pompei, an hour to Sorrento.

You buy your ticket in the basement level, too.

There are licensed guides outside of Pompei who will take you on a two hour tour. Then you can wander the grounds on your own after that. Most people underestimate the size of Pompei, and how much time they would like to spend there. So I would plan on at least four hours, more if you can. Be warned that on a hot day, Pompei can be brutal. Almost no shade. So take plenty of water, sun hat, sun screen.

Re: the Blue Grotto, I'm fairly sure that the times for visits depend on the tides. Maybe someone else here can confirm.

By the way, the stop you want for Pompei is called "Pompei Scavi - Villa dei Misteri." Sorrento is the end of the line.

Travel Tips for Naples

Sunglasses

by rsleisk

Sunglasses are prevelant everywhere in Italy but none more noticeable than when I was in Naples. It seems everyone young and old have a pair of sunglasses on at all times of day morning, noon, dusk and night! Bring your best pair of sunglasses and you will fit right in with the locals.

Biglieto giornaliero (Day ticket) UNICOCAMPANIA

by Ritchie_Lionheart

Public transport in and around Naples - in fact allover the Campania county - is frequent and cheap. S dinglr ticket anywhere within the Naples region costs Euro 1, so best you buy a Dayticket (Giornaliero) at the station or any tobacco shop in the morning. It costs 3 Euros for a calendar day of unlimited travel by bus, tram or metro within the Naples area (Fascia 1 covers this area). If you want to go further, then the UC dayticket will be more expensive. For example the Fascia 6 ticket costs Euro 6.40, but allows you to travel as far as Sorrento, Positano, Salerno etc.

A great way to avoid many of Naples' traffic hazards.

Archaelogical Museum

by deeper_blue

The archaeological museum is on Piazza Cavour, entrance is 10 euros, audioguide 4 euros. Some of the exhibits were not open, there is a large collection from Pompeii, my favourite section was the mosaics.

CAPRI !!!!!

by Jannick_L.

I have been to several countries but this is probably the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. This must be the most romantic place in the world.
Capri is situated in the south part of the Gulf of Naples, facing Sorrento and Positano. It is famous worldwide for the tourist and bathing resorts spread out along its coastline. Formerly the headquarters of imperial courts, the site of monasteries and a place of exile, its fame has grown over the centuries and is now a place of great natural interest and a destination for lovers of luxury and elegance. Amongst its most famous beauty spots must be included the little town of Capri, which is the capital of the island, the Blue Grotto, which can be reached from Marina Grande, and Villa Jovis from which Tiberius ruled the Roman Empire in the last years of his life. The most extraordinary feature of the island, however, is undoubtedly the famous group of steep crags – called the Faraglioni – standing in the sea off the east coast of the island.

Castel D'ovo

by suhadis

Castel D'ovo is situated right in the south of the city; it faces the open sea. If you want to explore the grounds and go to it's top to get great views of the city and the sea, and Mount Vesuvius - it's free!

The attached pictures are of the internal castel paths. To see views out of the castle's roof area, go to my next tips:
