Assisi to Sorrento

by slimjess07

I am going to be staying in Assisi for two nights, and then I want to go to Sorrento. I was wondering what the best way to do that would be. Should I take a bus? Is there a train that would get me there faster? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

To go by train, you will need to catch a train in Assisi and change trains in Roma Termini for the connection to Naples. From Naples you go down the stairs in the main station to the private Circumvesuviana line where you will catch a train to Sorrento. It's about 4.5-5 hrs from Assisi to Naples and then about an hour to Sorrento. the Sorrento trains leave very regularly and there is no need to book, just buy your ticket at the booth before you go on to the platform.

You can catch a train from Assis to Naples with a cchange in Roma Termini. When you get to Naples, you will need to go downstairs in the main station to the Circumvesuviana Line where you can catch a train to Sorrento. It's about 4.5 to 5.5 hours from Assisi to Naples and a further hour to Sorrento. The Sorrento trains leave very regularly and you simply buy your ticket before you go on to the Circumvesuviana platform.

Sorry, I have a problem with my trigger finger which causes me to give multiple replies, sometimes. I'm working on it, however.

I'm impressed, Kate - it says "5 replies" and I see only 4...you must have really confused VT ;-)

Yep, as Kate said, the train is the way to go. I asked www.italybus.it (Italian only) for a solution between Assisi and Sorrento, and all I got was a database error ;-). No, even if there is a bus that is direct (which is unlikely), it is likely to run only occasionally, like a few times a week, whereas the trains ran a lot.

Look at wwww.trenitalia.com , click on English at the top, and practice looking at train schedules. Note that there are some direct trains from Assisi to Roma Termini, but there will also be connections, so have a look. Note that the faster solutions will be more expensive...

Yay! That's some claim to fame I have Bill. Fancy little ol' me confusing VT to the point where it can't add up!

Travel Tips for Assisi

Interior of San Damiano

by icunme

The church of San Damiano does not have a great importance under the artistic point of view, especially if you compare it with some of the basilicas of Assisi, however it is a place that is a critical link in the history of both Saint Francis and Santa Clare. Saint Francis hid himself from his father who was obstructing his monastic choice in the cave under the edifice.

Houses in Assisi

by dfactor

One of the things I really like about Assisi is the stone houses lining up the streets. It feels like travelling back in time and you are in some Medieval town. People don't make houses like these anymore.

Day in Umbria

by Lhenne1

"See the Umbrian countryside from Assisi"

From the hills of Assisi you can look down on the gorgeous countryside of Umbria. So even if you're not looking for a religious experience, the views, the people and the artistry of this city will keep you entranced.

Assisi is located about half-way up mount Subasio and dates back to the Etruscan period. It was a Roman outpost and was often at odds with its' neighbor, Perugia.

Assisi is now regarded highly for its Catholic history, having been the home (and now burial places) of Saints Francis and Claire. The churches dedicated to the saints are filled with fantastic frescos, stained glass and marble art.

"The People"

We found the people in Assisi to be very friendly, despite the heat of the mid-July afternoon. After coming from busy Florence, it was nice to slow down a bit, wander through the local shops and talk with people. They were very patient with our broken Italian.

Assis is built on a hill, so expect to do plenty of walking up and down. Enjoy the great views of the Umbrian countryside from the high points in the town.

Religious artwork can be seen on the sides of buildings as you wander the city streets. the town is not large, so just take some time to wander around.
