Rome to sorrento

by happytotravel

Hi everybody..almost ready for our very exciting trip to Europe. I still, however, have a couple of questions. Our family of 4 need to get from Rome to Sorrento on a Saturday. I don't seem to be able to find any up to date info on buses or anything in English about trains. I am wondering pros and cons on both forms of transport, costs and where and when to get tickets Any advice would be very welcome.
The other question i have is ..we need to get from Sorrento to naples airport for a very early flight and I am wondering if anyone know of a good private transfer or taxi company. Once again thank-you for any help given.

Having done that very early morning transfer to Naples from Sorrento (that one was booked by our travel agency so no idea who it was - will try to find it), we wished in hindsight we'd just taken the Circumvesuviana train to Naples the night before and stayed the evening there - it would have beat getting up at 3:00 AM for the cab. Also, I have a very queasy stomach and that ride was no fun...

Any chance you could do that?

To get from Rome to Sorrento you first need to get to Naples. There are frequent trains on that route, and Trenitalia does have English pages. You can buy tickets online, but you can also just do that once you're in Italy.
See: http://www.ferroviedellostato.it/homepage_en.html
From Naples to Sorrento you take the circumvesuviana train. That is a local narrow gauge railway. Trains run about twice an hour, and the fares are quite cheap. They leave from a station below the main station in Naples. Just buy tickets for that train once you get to Naples and get on the next one.

Here's a transfer service someone on Trip Advisor recommended - the website will also give you a quote:

Will see if I can find any others....

Ah, here we go...

This is from the Sorrento travel site - has a list of private drivers, and I see the one I previously gave you is on it:

Wow thanks for all of the quick replies. I really wish that i had thought about staying in naples a bit earlier. Unfortunately I have already booked my accommodation so it is probably too late... i will try an email johnny and see what his story is.
Does anyone know anything about the Rome to Sorrento Bus?

Re: Rome to sorrento

by goodfish

Gosh, I'd think you'd really want to take the train?? Any particular reason why you want to do it by bus? Yu do NOT have to prebook train tickets - the trains run very regularly as you can just get a schedule and go buy your tickets at Termini.

On what date are you planning to go from Rome to Sorrento? If you look at the trenitalia website too far in the future, you won't find reliable information (generally 60+ days).

Also, it is the Marozzi bus that goes from Rome direct to Sorrento...but only twice a day. Again, there schedule depends on what day of the week you go. Today, for example, there are 2 buses: one leaves Rome at 07:00 and the other leaves Rome at 15:00 (the trip takes 3.75 to 4 hours). NOTE: in Rome, the bus departs from the bus "depot" at Roma Tiburtina, the second largest train station in Rome a kilometer or two east of Roma Termini.

The website is www.marozzivt.it, but it's only in Italian...

Travel Tips for Sorrento

Summer Nights

by barryg23

After a long day exploring the sights of Sorrento and the region, it was nice to come back to the hotel and relax on the balcony (overlooking the street, not the sea unfortunately), with a glass or three of limoncello.

Bus between Sorrento and Rome

by gmg61

To go to Sorrento from Rome (or viceversa) apart from train you can go by bus.
There's a daily sarvice that leaves Sorrento at 6 a.m. and Rome at 7 a.m. and get to destination in about 4 hours.

It's quicker tan the train and more cmfortable, because there's no need to change.

Many websites about Sorrento have the timetables, one of the most comprehensive is here below

Interesting flavours

by SallyM about O'Parruchiano

This restaurant is deceptive - a standard frontage opens out within into a massive 'garden' area to the rear, with lots of orange and lemon trees.

The meal we had here was the best we had in Sorrento. I had ravioli with almonds as a starter and it was a revelation. The almond filling in the ravioli tasted rather like marzipan and it came in a rich tomato sauce, garnished with a langoustine. It sounds revolting, but was delicious. My husband's starter of star pasta with orange and lemon sauce was equally good.

I also enjoyed prawns in brandy and creme caramel.

Church of Carmine

by Willettsworld

The origin of this church probably dates back to the years 230 - 240 A.D., when Sorrento was implemented in a persecution against Christians. It was rebuilt at the end of the sixteenth century. The church is in Baroque style with only one nave.

Beaches of sorrento

by mallyak

Sorrento is not noted for its beaches. It sits on a clifftop, above the shore. The nearest sandy beach to the harbour is the small Marina Piccola, which is reached by steps or a lift. The other sandy beach is Marina Grande, around 15 minutes' walk from the town centre. The most attractive beach is Punto del Capo further south. It is reached from the centre of town by following Via del Capo, though it is best to take a bus.
