Travel from Paris to Naples

by Pasquali56

We're going to Paris, then directly to Naples for a stay in Sorrento. I see that there aren't any direct flights from Paris to Naples. Any suggestions? Would flying to Rome, then taking a train to Naples be a good option? Thanks.

Easyjet flies from Orly to Naples everyday around noon. If booked in advance you can get some good price.

Hi,

Who told you there are no direct flights ? Depending on the day you fly both Air France and Alitalia go direct to Naples. And even another small company called Meridiana go direct. Cost is upwards of 220 Euros out of CDG.

If I were you, I would not bother trying to find a flight from Rome to Naples. There's always troubles with the airlines - take the train to Napoli and from there a taxi to Sorrento. Buon viaggio! Saluti, stellamia

A taxi to Sorrento from Naples will be 60+ euros:it's a fair distance.

Far easier to get the Circumvesuviana train from Napoli Centrale station (that's where you will arrive). Just go down one level: the Circumvesuviana is privately owned, so its times etc are not on the Trenitalia site.

The journey takes about an hour, and trains are frequent (and very reasonably priced). http://www.vesuviana.it/Reteeorari/Ferrovia/Orario for timetables (Linea Napoli Sorrento).

If you fly in, take the Currieri dedicated airport bus direct to Sorrento from Naples airport. The bus stop is almost directly outside arrivals, and it takes you to the middle of Sorrento (outside the Circumvesuviana station). Reliable, friendly and very good value (in my experience).

Travel Tips for Naples

Vesuvius

by toonsarah

Everyone has heard about how the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79 destroyed the town of Pompeii, but Vesuvius isn’t just a story from history – it’s a live volcano that broods over the city of Naples and the surrounding region today. You’ll see it from many parts of the city, especially down by the bay. It is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years, and is still regarded as an active volcano although it is currently dormant. However, it has erupted many times since the famous destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum, most recently in 1944, and is regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world because of the population of 3 million people who live close to it and its tendency towards explosive eruptions.

When you look carefully at the mountain, especially from the side by the sea (e.g. if passing on the Circumvesuvio train as we did several times) you can see that it is in fact a cone within a cone. The central cone is known as Gran Cono, and this is partially encircled by the steep rim of a caldera caused by the collapse of an earlier, and originally much higher structure called Monte Somma. The Gran Cono was produced during the eruption of 79. Its has been constantly changed by eruptions but is currently 1,281 m (4,202 ft).

I love mountains generally but there was something a little disconcerting looking up at this brooding presence and remembering just what power is locked inside it. I found myself wondering if the people of Naples ever think about the time-bomb waiting to explode just a few miles from their homes, or if they’re so used to it that they don’t give it a second thought as they go about their lives. Maybe though it is precisely this life lived on the edge that gives these people their energy and passion?

Capri

by ruki

From Naples, it is a short trip over to the fabled island of Capri - playground of the rich and famous. You can reach the island by hydrofoil or by ferry. On arrival at the dock, you can ride a tramway up to the small town of Capri. The famous Piazzetta square in the center of town is a good place to shop or enjoy a drink. A walking tour of the town enables you to view the magnificent garden terraces, and historic churches and villas. Very near the town of Capri is another small village called Anacapri where you can take a chair lift to the top of one of the highest peaks on the island and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Bay of Naples.

Don't go further if you want real pizza napoletana

by baronedivandastad about Pizzaiolo dal Presidente

The place is always very busy with locals and the occasional tourists, and since it does also take away the street in front is often bustling with scooters and cars.

The place is nice inside, with a surprisingly airy basement and a fast, if sometimes a bit rude, service.

The pizza is quite unlike any other you can taste in Italy. It's soft and thick in good stile napoletano, and the fillings they use are of good quality. A unique specialty is fried pizza, see below.

As drinks, you can choose between Italian beer (not bad) and a drinkable house wine. The bill was very honest, you should not pay more than 10-12 euros for a pizza meal with drinks and coffee.

Be prepared to wait if you come after 8 pm, especially at weekends. What a delicious thing that pizza was! and it was fried! try asking "pizza fritta" for yourself and see!

Curch of Santa Chiara and its Cloister

by Polly74

This church originated in 1300 and was restored after the Second World War during which it was damaged in air-raid bombing. It was returned to its original Provencal Gothic style. The funeral monument of Robert I of Anjou is to be noted. In the nearby Convent in Piazza del Gesù, there is a wonderful majolica-tiled Cloister to be seen.

Piazza Plebiscito & the Palazzo Reale

by yooperprof

The Piazza Pebiscito is the largest in Naples, similar in size to the square in front of the Vatican in Rome. Fortunately, the Piazza is car-free, but the space is actually a little _too_ large to "work", in that it usually seems rather deserted, forlorn, and somehow oppressive, IMHO. On the positive side, it has become a successful "forum" for Neapolitans when they wish to express themselves politically or socially, and the center of the Piazza is now a site for annual "installations" that reflect the growing significance as a center for contemporary art.
