train

by sammyk

Hi
Does anyone have information on a high speed train to Salerno from Naples. We thought maybe we could return back to Naples that way instead of the local train out of Sorrento. How long of a drive is it on a bus along the coast from Sorrento to Salerno? Do you have to make reservations for a high speed train? We are on a cruise and must make it back in time for the ship's departure.
Thanks

www.trenitalia.com, the official website, suggests that there are no Fast Trains on this route. Slow Regional Trains take less than i hour (minimum 40 minutes) for this route.

Going back to Naples by way of Salerno will take much longer and be less reliable than the Circumvesuviana train from Sorrento to Naples. First, you have the SITA bus ride across the length of the Amlafi peninsula, which will not only take upwards of three hours (Sorrento to Amalfi, then change and take Amalfi to Salerno), but then you would need at least 35 minutes to take the train up to Naples. Oh, and you're also subject to the vagaries of traffic on the narrow winding roads there.

Curiously, there are some premium trains that run from Salerno to Naples...but they are not any faster than some of the regional trains, and cost more than twice as much. But it doesn't matter. Unless you were already over near Salerno when you started, returning via Salerno makes no sense.

PS. remember that from Sorrento you have the option of taking a ferry or a hydrofoil back to Naples, if the weather is good...

We have been trying to look into taking the ferry from Naples to Sorrento but it seems it is not operating at this time. We will be there on the 4th of May ( a couple of weeks away) That is our prefered method of travel but cannot seem to get information of when services start up again this year. Metro del Mare's site is not up and the other sites are in Italian and unfortunatly I do not read or speak Italian. If you have any other information on these site could you please post it.
Thanks in advance

Hmmmn, well, there is Alilauro, which operates ferries in the Bay of Naples...
see
http://www.alilauro.it/orari.pdf
which is the schedule from April 1 to June 14...look for Sorrento - Napoli.
"Ora di Parentenza" = departure time
"Porto di Arrivo" = Arrival port
"Porto di Partenza" = Departure port
"Bev" = Molo Beverello, or the Beverello pier

Note that this ferry has a page sort of in English - http://www.alilauro.it/index.php?lingua=english

There may be other ferries as well, but this should reassure you...

Travel Tips for Naples

As we all know Italy is known...

by Daffy_Duck

As we all know Italy is known for several things, Art, Cuisines and Fashion.
In Naples if you have relatives let them take you to the stores they shop in because when a tourist is detected, well, the $$$ come in to play. Naples can be a scary place if not alert!!

Packing List

by sargentjeff

A good day pack will help. Make sure you can lock it, and always be attentive on public transportation, and when walking on crowded streets. Always secure your belongings, and never let your attention wander in crowds. Safety pins are another added security measure you can use for zippers comfortable shoes, and an umbrella are advisable. Bring sufficient medications, as it may be tough to find what you need if you don't speak Italian. Also, some of the hand sanitizer may help, as you may not find soap in restrooms Digital is great, but any will do. A wide angle lens would be wonderful here, as the vistas are worth capturing. There are beaches nearby, so if you come in the summer don't forget your suit I left Napoli with a beautiful Italian souvenir. She is the love of my life and definitely has the Italian ability to talk loudly and with her hands.

More on parking in Naples

by sargentjeff

Parking in downtown is nothing less than hell on earth. As if just trying to find your way around isn't enough, you eventually have to park, or give up and take the trains and buses. The second option won't sound so bad after you attempt to park on occasion.

There is one parking lot in the Centro Storico district just behind Santa Chiara, but getting to it is an adventure in itself. Just follow the blue "P" signs if you are in this area, and eventually you'll get there. It's convenient for exploring the heart of Naples, but also costs 2 Euro per hour, or partial hour. Make sure and secure all valuables before leaving your car, and remember your wallet, as I almost forgot mine in the car while leaving it in the lot.

Chiesa Gesù Nuovo

by toonsarah

This is one of two churches well worth visiting in the Piazza del Gesù (the other is Santa Chiara – see below). Its unusual façade is in a style known as "ashlar" and it is one of the few examples of this characteristic 15th-century façade in Naples. The shape also struck me as unusual for a church, and I read later that this is because it wasn’t originally built as one but as a home for Robert Sanseverino, Prince of Salerno, in the 15th century. The residence was passed down through the family for several generations but when one of them was disgraced and had to flee the city it was put up for sale and found its way into the hands of the Jesuits who converted it into a church.

The contrast between the sober exterior and the riot of Baroque decoration inside is what makes this church special. We couldn’t look round as fully as I‘d have liked as a Mass was being said, but we did explore the western side aisle with its stunning ceilings. At its far end we came across a little side chapel tucked away which was covered all over its walls and ceiling with metallic plates symbolising various body parts – legs, arms, heads, even breasts, as well as whole babies. It appears that the saint to whom the chapel is dedicated, St Ciro, is known for his ability to heal the sick, and these medallions were each a sign of someone’s prayer.

We didn’t however manage to see properly the frescos on the ceiling of the central nave, by Belisario Corenzio and Paolo de Matteis, nor the painting of The Expulsion of Heliodorus from the Temple (1725) one of the most noteworthy works by Francesco Solimena, the great painter of the Neapolitan Baroque. Nevertheless I enjoyed my visit to this inspiring church.

Do open my extra photos to get the full effect of the contrast between exterior and interior.

Duomo

by toonsarah

The Cathedral of Naples (or Duomo) is dedicated to San Gennaro (Saint Januarius), the city's patron. Originally built between 1294 and 1323 in French Gothic style, it was considerably restored and altered after an earthquake in 1456. It was built on the foundations of two early Christian basilicas. Beneath the church, excavations have revealed Greek and Roman artefacts, just as at San Lorenzo Maggiore. In the centre of the front, which dates from 1877 to 1905, is an older doorway dating back to1407.

The church houses a vial of the Saint's blood, which is believed to have the power of liquefaction. According to the legend, this occurred for the first time when the saint's remains were transferred to Naples in the time of Constantine . It is now brought out twice a year, on the first Saturday in May and 19th September, and usually liquefies. According to legend, if the blood should fail to liquefy, then something bad will happen to Naples. The saint's tomb can be seen in the richly decorated Confessio (1497-1506) under the high altar.

We didn’t go inside as a Mass was just finishing and it would have meant fighting against the people leaving the building. Instead we went to get a quick lunch, planning to return – but decided while eating that it was time to leave the Centro Storico and explore another side of Naples.
