Train from Fiumicino Airport (Rome) to Sorrento

by GlendaSouthAfrica

Hello ... please advise the best way from the Fiumicino airport to Sorrento. Must I go into Rome first or can I go directly from the airport (presumably to Florence), and then on to Sorrento? Thanks!!

Re: Train from Fiumicino Airport (Rome) to Sorrento

by travelfrosch

A quick look on trenitalia.com indicates you need to change in Rome and Naples (Napoli Centrale) to get to Sorrento from Fiumicino Airport. In Naples, you will need to change to the private "Circumvesuviana" train to Sorrento. You'll need to head downstairs, purchase a ticket from the Circumvesuviana ticket counter, then downstairs to the Circumvesuviana station called "Napoli P. Garibaldi" to catch your train to Sorrento. One way fare is approximately EUR 7.50. For more information on this and other possibilities to get to Sorrento from Naples and/or Rome, take a look at http://www.sorrento-online.com/english/orari.htm .

Hope this helps!

welcome to VT, Glenda. If you are proceeding directly to Sorrento from Fiumcino by train the directions above are of course correct. Have you considered renting a car? To within perhaps 10 miles of Sorrento, the driving is all easy autostrada driving. Having a car on the Amalfi peninsula will give you the freedom to visit Positano and lovely Ravello on your own schedule as these towns are served only by the SITA busses, not known for schedule accuracy. For Pompeii, just take the CircumV train back a few stops. Easier and far more convenient than three trains.

you need to look at a map, florence is north of rome and sorrento is south.

you will need to change trains twice as noted before, in Rome and Naples.

"presumably to Florence" - I am guessing that Glenda meant to write [the town of ]"Fiumicino" here, as going to Florence would certainly be in the wrong direction...

The Lion’s Share

by von.otter

“War alone brings up to their highest tension all human energies and imposes the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have the courage to make it.”
— Benito Mussolini (1883-1945)

THE COURAGE OF A LEO Perhaps Italy’s most infamous Leo, Il Duce, was born on the 29th of July.

Is your astrological sign Leo, the lion? If it is, or if you travel with some who is a Leo as I do, here is a fun way to honor that person and that birth sign and to make unique photos: pose with lions, not real ones, but architectural ones, decorative ones.

The Eternal City does not want for lions: indoor, outdoor, ancient, modern, large and small, on doors as knockers and integrated into fountains, in Rome, there’s a lion for every Leo.

The lion, the king of animals, was mainly associated by the Romans with Hercules, who was always portrayed wearing a lion’s skin. This association was not lost and was used again in many Renaissance works. Lions protected the dead in the Roman sarcophagi. Ancient Romans were fond of scenes that showed a lion hunting and killing a deer.

Photo #1 — The lions that flank the steps leading to the gardens of the Villa Medici are copies. The originals had stood there since they were sculpted by Flaminio Vacca in 1600. At the end of the 18th century, Villa Medici was sold by Ferdinand III, Grand Duke of Tuscany, and the originals were moved to Florence. When, in 1803, Napoleon relocated the French Academy to the Villa Medici, the copies were added.

Photo #2 — The lion detail from Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s 1650 marble grouping “Daniel in the Lions’ Den” in the Chigi Chapel in Santa Maria del Popolo.

When you arrive on the airport of Rome, and you buy a trainticket to the city, you better buy a return ticket, so you don't have to waste time when you're going back to the airport by waiting in the line for buying a trainticket.

We had two very nice dinners, one at the Hotel Hassler and one at the Hotel Majestic. They were both very nice, but on the expensive side. The view from the Hassler is outstanding but plan on dropping a couple of hundred on dinner for two

Trajan's Column

by fishandchips

Trajan's Column is located near the Quirinal Hill, north of the Roman Forum and is a monument raised by Apollodorus of Damascus at the order of emperor Trajan.

Finished in 113AD, the spiral bas-relief commemorates Trajan's victory in his military campaigns to conquer Dacia. It is about 30 metres tall (38 including its large pedestal). The shaft is made from a series of 18 marble drums each weighing about 40 tons.

A 200 metre frieze winds around the shaft 23 times and is full of very interesting carvings though you can see only a few from the bottom. Maybe when it was erected there were ways to see more of them?

Inside the shaft, a spiral staircase of 185 stairs provides access to a viewing platform at the top. It's a good walk with excellent views over the Trajan Market.

Originally, the column was topped with a statue of an eagle and later by a statue of Trajan. In 1588 it was replaced by the current statue of St. Peter by Pope Sixtus V.
