naples to sorrento travel

My wife and I are traveling from Dallas to Naples and arriving next Saturday at noon. We then need to travel to Sorrento. The train (circumvisuviano) looks pretty along the coast. There appears to be a train station close to the airport, by do you need to take a taxi to get there or is there a bus or tram to transport you? Given all of this, is it easier to just take a bus to Sorrento?

bus from the airport is recommended. No lugging bags up/down stairs/escalators to platform, no crossing busy roads with luggage, guaranteed seating on the bus. The train is a commuter train with no dedicated luggage storage space, while the bus has luggage holds.

Listen to bibimbob,

bus is defenitely the easiest/hassel-free way to travel to Sorrento. Curreri Viaggi runs direct buses from Naples airport:


once you are in Sorrento, and have left your luggage at the hotel, then you can use either the train with Circumvesuviana:


or the boat and hydrofoil from Sorrento:

I have I have traveled to Sorrento from Naples on the Circumvesuviana and other than being crowded when one is close to Naples, it is ok. The Circumvesuviana runs every 30 minutes. The buses run less often than this.

To take the Circumvesuviana from the airport, you take the Alibus (3 euros) to the train station at Piazza garibaldi. You buy the Circumvesuvaina tickets at their own window or a newstand. It is NOT a trenitlain train but a locally owned one. You get on in the basement of the train station on the train that has Sorrento lsited as the final destination.

In addtion to riding the Circumvesuvian from Sorrento to napler and vice versa, I have ridden it many times at all hours of the day and night between Pompeii and Sorrento and back and during the day to Herculaneum adn back to Sorrento.
