How to get from Amalfi to Naples
After spending time on the beautiful Italian coast, you might find yourself needing to get back to the Metropolitan hub of Naples.
If you are travelling from Amalfi to Naples, you have several travel options. The cheapest way to travel from Amalfi to Naples is by public transport. However, there isn’t a direct route from Amalfi to Naples by bus or train, so you’ll have to take a bus or a ferry from Amalfi to Sorrento, and then take a bus or a train to Naples Central Station. The fastest way to travel from Amalfi to Naples is by car. This is also the best way to travel from Amalfi to Naples because it’s direct, sparing you the annoying transfers and overcrowded busses.
Amalfi to Naples by train
Since there is no direct train from Amalfi to Naples, you will need to get to Sorrento first by bus. From Sorrento to Naples, a train 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 the off season. A one way trip takes an hour and ten minutes, and you can purchase your ticket at the station for 3.10 euros. Keep in mind that these tickets can’t be purchased in advance, so they tend to be overcrowded or sold out. For an additional 4 euros you can shave 20 minutes off of the trip to Naples by taking the Campania Express, a special tourist line with guaranteed seats, air conditioning, and luggage storage. You can buy these tickets online at the EAV Campania website. 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.
