Arrive at Naples Airport at 815pm, Train to Vico Equense?

What are the chances I will be able to catch a train to Vico Equense from the Naples airport at 830pm at night on a Wednesday evening in September? Should I plan on staying the night in Naples and catch a train in the morning? I am traveling alone and will have had a long flight all day before arriving in Naples airport.

Thanks for your advice!

The chances are zero, because there's no train station at the airport.

There is a bus direct to Vico Equense from the airport, but the last run of the day departs at 7:30 PM, too early for you: http://www.curreriviaggi.it/

If you're up for it after a long day of travel, you could take the Alibus from the airport to Napoli Centrale train station (3 Euro, runs every 20 - 30 minutes throughout the day, last departure from the airport at 11:40 PM: http://www.portal.gesac.it/portal/page/portal/fckeditor/image/internet/IN%20ARRIVO/Alibus.JPG), then walk downstairs to the Circumvesuviana Garibaldi station and take the local train from there to Vico Equense. The train schedule is here: eavcampania.it/web/…Cx.pdf

elstravels' suggestion is a good one. After flying all the way from the West Coast (like I do), I would opt for a taxi to Napoli Centrale, but I am lazy that way. :-)

Thank you both for great information...I am thinking it might be best to take a taxi to a lovely Naples hotel near the train station and leave for Vico Equense in the morning. Any suggestions for such a hotel?

Your advice is greatly appreciated!

Naples has a fixed-fare taxi scheme, so the trip to the train station or a hotel in the area would be 16 Euro. You must specify the fixed fare before the trip begins; you can download the fare chart from the city's web site here: …napoli.it/flex/…1193 (the third pdf in the list is in English).

I've never stayed in one of the hotels at the train station so I can't help you with that. I like to get my travel over with all at once, so I'd be likely to push through and get to my final destination on arrival day rather than check in, check out, then check in again the next day, but that's me.

Once you've spent 16 Euro to get downtown ... you're about 15%-20% into the cost of a taxi direct from the airport to Vico Equense, maybe that's your answer?

I agree with els - get all of your travel done as soon as possible! For me it would be totally worth it to take a taxi direct from NAP to Vico. I have taken both a taxi and a private driver from NAP to Positano after the long flight from the West Coast and it was worth every penny!

Then you can wake up and enjoy Vico on your first day!

Excellent advice...I think the taxi direct to Vico Equense is the answer! I will be lugging around my bags and full of jet lag, a taxi ride to my final destination is just perfect. Thanks to you both for your thoughts.

Another suggest: book your transfer with a private driver in advance. It will be cheaper than catch a taxi outside the airport.

Hello,

I have been reading this forum and will arrive in Naples at a similar time in August. We will be a party of 5 and wonder if you could suggest acreutable company to book to take us to pompei.

Thank you
