No it is not possible.

Trenitalia trains go to Napoli Centrale station. will give you train times,details and fares from Catania in English (link at top of page). You may or may notneed to change trains during the journey.

You don't need to book your tickets in advance, but you can if you choose to do so.

From Napoli Centrale you will need to take the Circumvesuviana (commuter-type)train to Sorrento. Trains go from more or less the same place as Napoli Centrale, one level down (just follow the signs). You don't need to book tickets in advance: trains are frequent and reasonably-priced. Journey time is around and hour, and Sorrento is the end of the line.

Timetables in English here;

Remember to validate (date-stamp) your tickets before boarding the trains (both types) using the yellow machines on the platform. There is an on-the-spot fine if you don't, and they do check.

No, you can't travel on the same train. The only railway reaching Sorrento is the Circonvesuviana, not managed by Ferrovie dello Stato, the Italian national railway company.
The Napoli - Sorrento ride on Circonvesuviana lasts 1 hour approximately, the ticket cost is 3,- Euro.
You might consider the chance of travelling by ferry boat from Catania to Napoli ( and by hydrofoil from Napoli to Sorrento ( -

If you take the Metro del Mare (or other) hydrofoil/ferry from Naples to Sorrento you will need a taxi/bus to the Beverello dock from Napoli Centrale and then a bus/taxi from the port at Sorrento up to the town.

Taking the Circumvesuviana is much simpler and easier if you are arriving by train.

A taxi from Napoli Centrale is also possible, but I suspect you are looking at around 100 euro for the journey.

Take the Circumvesuviana! :-)

Travel Tips for Sorrento

Pomodoro di Sorrento (Tomato of Sorrento)

by Balam

This large, round, ribbed eating tomato is light red in colour, verging on pink with green hues when harvested, it is very fleshy and firm and has a sweet, delicate flavour. Today the main production area of the Sorrento tomato coincides with its native land and is a limited hilly area on the Sorrento peninsula, in the communes of Piano di Sorrento and S. Agnello. It is these farms that have reproduced the "Sorrento ecotype", which was probably derived by selection from the "Cuore di bue" or "bull's heart" tomato (so-called due to its shape).According to others however, the cultivation of this variety was developed at the beginning of the twentieth century, when the Sorrento shipowners, who shipped lemons to the Americas, imported the seed directly from the New World.

Since the beginning of the nineties, when demand increased, this tomato has also been grown in limited areas of plains in the communes near Vesuvius, such as Gragnano, Boscoreale and Torre Annunziata (though the tomato has slightly different pomological and organoleptic characteristics to the Sorrento tomato grown in the traditional production area). The Sorrento tomato owes some of its success to the famous Caprese salad, the classic dish of tomatoes, basil and local fiordilatte cheese (mozzarella) from the Lattari Mountains. The renewed and considerable interest that this product has raised with local vegetable farmers has lead to the setting up of a promotional committee to apply for the IGP brand (Protected Geographical Indication).

By car

by Willettsworld

I travelled from Pompeii (where I was staying) to Sorrento one morning and the journey was pretty good. The road along the coast into Sorrento is a little slow as it's used by lorries and buses. The thing I found is that I didn't know where I was when I was nearing Sorrento. It's a little confusing to know if you're actually in Sorrento or not. I parked in a covered car park a couple of roads up from Corso Italia on a road called Via San Renato and then walked past the train station to Piazza Tasso.


by pecsihornet

Ravello is situated about 5 km from Amalfi; up on the mountain, overlooking the coast from Maiori to Amalfi.
Ravello was founded in the VI century A.D., reaching the apex of the splendor in the X and XI century; following the same sort of the Amalfi Republic, even after obtaining the independence from her, when they refused to follow, in the XI century, Amalfi in a war against Guiscardo.

To visit:
- Villa Rufolo
- Villa Cimbrone
- The Church dedicated to San Pantaleone

Amalfi Boat Trips

by Jetgirly

Several companies run trips along the Amalfi Coast, connecting cities like Sorrento with Naples, Capri, Ischia, Positano, Amalfi and Sapri. I travelled from Sorrento to Amalfi with Metro del Mare, an extension of the public transportation service that is only offered in the high-season. It was EUR 7.00 to travel from Sorrento to Amalfi and the trip took about fifty minutes, which is significantly faster than the busses and affords much nicer views. Tickets are sold at a kiosk near the Marina and schedules are available at tourist information or the ticket office. Service begins (sporadically) around April and runs until about October, with frequent service during the summer months.
