Travels from Rome
I will be in İtaly on the 3rd week of May.We will spend 3 days in Rome(the hotel is not mentioned yet).I am planning to visit Napoli,Pompei and Capri on the same day. I would like to get your advices about the best route.I can get up early and turn back to Rome late.It is no problem.But I want to explore these three places as good as possible.
If anyone have any other advices about the my place choices(Napoli,Pompei,Capri) I would like to hear. Besause sometimes there may be other places more interesting and exiting than the places mostly visited by tourists.
Also need information about where we can find delicious fish for an acceptable price.
Thank you all.
Re: Travels from Rome
You only have one feasible option, and that is to travel by train to Naples (assuming you do not wish to take an organised day trip)
It is highly unlikely that you will be able to visit Naples, Pompeii and Capri in one day and then return to Rome.
will give you train times from Rome to Naples.
You will arrive at Napoli Centrale station. From there you can walk to the Circumvesuviana station next door, and take the cheap Circumvesuviana train (more like a Metro carriage) to Pompeii-Scavi-Villa dei Mysteri station (about 30 minutes).
Circumvesuviana train timetable here:
You need the Naples>Sorrento line.
The train stops directly outside the site entrance. But Pompeii is absolutely huge (probably uch bgger than you think). You need to allow at least 2 hours to even begin to explore it, and it deserves much more time.
Then take the train back to Naples (another 30 minutes) or onward to Sorento (another 30 minutes).
From either place you could get a ferry or hydrofoil to Capri. Timetables here:
Once back in Naples, to catch the ferr or hydrofoil you would have to get a bus or taxi to Beverello Dock. In Sorrento you would have to get a bus or taxi to the marina. You could walk, of course, but this would take much longer.
Once in Capri there is only very limited transport: it is an island for walking, and deserves at least 3 hours to enjoy (including time to get to/from the ferry dock by bus or funicular).
Then you must ensure that you are back at Napoli Centrale in good time for the return train to Rome.
So you can see that your plan is not really feasible, unless you are happy just to 'tick boxes'.
My suggestion is that you concentrate either on Naples and Pompeii (and nearby Herculaneum, which is a couple of stations back towards Naples and entirely differnt) or on Naples and Capri.
Both places deserve more time than you could possibly give, even if you do find that it the train and ferry connections allow you to visit them in one day.
Do not forget to factor in time for queuing to buy tickets for Pompeii/ferries etc, and time to actally orient yourself (e.g. finding the correct ferry ticket office, finding the Circumvesuviana station). O, and you will want to eat...fish?....so need to allow time to find a good restuarnt, and actually eat your meal.
I do not think you will find anywhere more 'interesting or exciting' than the places about which you have already heard. They are famous because they are unique.
Travel Tips for Rome
The Capitoline Museum
The creation of the Capitoline Museums has been traced back to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV donated a group of bronze statues of great symbolic value to the People of Rome.
The collections are closely linked to the city of Rome, and most of the exhibits come from the city itself.
We went to see Lazio v Atalanta at the Olymipico stadio. Its in a lovely area.
Its easier to get tickets for Lazio than Roma, the good thing is one of them will always be playing at home, so if you really fancy some footy, then you should have no problems.
Old Christmas Cards
It's a basic stationery store, nothing fancy. At the time I went they had Christmas cards and I was able to buy some old ones for about 50 cents!! This store also had childrens books, Italian design markers and pens, and other stationery items. Reasonably priced.
The best Roman food in town
Small tables, very friendly service, very crowded almost every night, this place just has a certain charm to it that is best experienced rather than described. It's been Rome's favorite restaurants for years now and when you enter you can see the photos of the many celebrities who visited this place. You might even run into one of them! But don't think it's a modern furnished designer cuisine, FAR from that!
But this place simply has the best food in town! I go to Rome every two months or so and I always come back to this place. Their Anti pasta buffet is incredible, their paste is heaven but my favorite is the roast with potatoes in the oven.
Dress very casual. Nothing about this place is uptight. However because of the amount of clients every night, I recommend to reserve earlier in the day. It also saves you from standing in a LONG waiting line. The roast with the potatoes in the oven was out of this world. The portion was perfect if you had just had your first course already. The sauce is amazing and you need to try it with their house wine.
La Dolce Vita
Made famous in the '60s by la Dolce Vita, Café de Paris continues to be a chic meeting spot for high society in Rome. When taking a stroll up Via Veneto, take a break here for a delicious coffee and some people watching, and experience la dolce vita.
