Circumvesuviana is a railway operating services in the East of the Naples metropolitan area. It is managed by EAV Ente Autonomo Volturno. The Circumvesuviana railway service covers a wide catchment area of over 2 million people, distributed in 47 municipalities, including Scafati, San Valentino Torio and Sarno in the province of Salerno and Avella and Baiano in the province of Avellino. The network forms an important commercial artery, and provides services to the important tourist destinations of Pompeii (How to reach Pompeii) and Herculaneum (How to reach Herculaneum).

All routes start from the Napoli Porta Nolana terminus near the Porta Nolana, and pass through Napoli Garibaldi station before splitting into several branches to towns in the province. A journey along the entirety of the longest route, the 47 km (29 min) from Naples to Sorrento, takes about one hour.

    Hi, we are flying ton Napoli on Sunday . We will be staying in sorrento till Thursday. I am wondering if there is a way that I reach on time the airport on Thursday morning: fly at 09:00 or if it is better to rent a car? I find it hard to get time tables . I know that there is a bus from sorrento directly to the airport but it is too late for our flight. Thanks in advance for your help and advice,

      It will be early morning when you’ll leave the airport so I would suggest you to rent a car or get a transfer to the airport. Don’t take a chance!

    È possibile di comprare i biglietti per un gruppo di 103 student e 8 prof in anticipo? Vorremmo andare da Sorrento a Castellamare, il 8 aprile 2019 alle 21.00.
    L’anno scorso, quando sono venuto alla biglietteria della stazione Circumvesuviana di Sorrento, per comprare tanti biglietti, sorse un caos nella linea dietro di me!

    In attesa di una risposta, vi mando i miei cordiali saluti!

      Salve Herman, al momento non penso sia possibile comprare i biglietti in anticipo. Penso la cosa migliore sia mandare qualcuno alla biglietteria un pochino prima per comprare tutti i biglietti in modo da non bloccare tutto. Inoltre non si preoccupi troppo, fare un pochino di chaos da queste parti è normale. 🙂

      Hi Mercier, it depends of the station but mostly is accessible via a Wheelchair. You may found challenges around the stations tough.

    How early does the train run from Sorrento to Naples? Looking to make a 7:30am train at Naples on AUG24.

    Does the sorrento – Naples train pick up at Sorrento early enough?

    I need to get from positano to Naples. What’s my best option. Should I take the Sita bus to sorrento and then the EAV train to Naples. And is the Sita bus stop and the EAV train station close by. Do send me the time table along with the rates of the EAV.
    Thanks and regards
