To travel from Sorrento to Naples, you have several travel options. For travellers on a budget, the cheapest way to travel from Sorrento to Naples is by public transport, as there are a few train, bus and ferry companies that offer this transfer at a low cost. The fastest way to travel from Sorrento to Naples is by ferry or train, but if you care about convenience, the best way to travel from Sorrento to Naples is by car.

Sorrento to Naples by train

Taking a train from Sorrento to Naples is a cheap and popular option among tourists. The Circumvesuviana train leaves daily from the main station in Sorrento every half hour from 6 AM to 10 PM in the high season, and a bit less frequently in off seasons. A one way trip takes an hour and ten minutes, and you can purchase your ticket at the station for about 4 euros.  A great deal for a cost-savvy traveler, but keep in mind these trains have no luggage area, no air conditioning, and are often overcrowded, especially in the summer. For 4 euros more you can shave 20 minutes off of the trip by taking the Campania Express, a special tourist line with guaranteed seats, air conditioning, and luggage storage. Tickets can be purchased online at the EAV Campania website or at the Circumbesubiana ticket office. These trains run less frequently than the Circumvesuviana and the schedule depends on the season, so be sure to check the time tables in advance.
