    1. Hi!

      Circumvesuviana trains starts their journey from Porta Nolana in Naples therefore you can buy tickets in newspaper kiosks or in bars near Porta Nolana. If you are leaving from Piazza Garibaldi then you can buy tickets in newspaper kiosks near it.
      You can also book tickets online on the official website of the company: Ente Autonomo Volturno ( but now it is too early to do that.
      In addition, you can check the more detailed information about the train and bus connections with Pompei here. Please note that the timetable can be different in November.

      Have a safe trip!

  1. 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,

    1. 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!

  2. Buongiorno

    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!

    1. 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. 🙂

  3. Vorrei comprare biglietti per un gruppo. Da Sorrento a Castellamare, il 8 april 2019.

    Come facciamo questo?

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

  4. 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?
