Hi there, i see you asked the question about getting from Rome to Ravello. i also see you went in May. Can you tell me what you did in the end as i will be travelling from Rome to Ravello in September?!
Any help would be great, many thanks
Michelle - Salerno indeed the closest you can get to Ravello by train. Out in front of the station is taxi stand. I believe a taxi to Ravello from there is about 50 euros. You can also opt for a SITA bus - but I'm not sure there is a bus that runs direct between Salerno and Ravello. You can find out in the tourist info office at the station.
thank you very much, thats very kind and helpful :O)
we did jump in a cab from Salerno to Ravello; cost 90 euro which seems expensive however it is almost an hour drive and there were four of us.
We booked a cab for the trip back from Ravello to Salerno a week later and again paid 90 euro.
From what I could understand it is the best way to get to and fro the station.
If you're lucky enough to get a cabby who speaks English and is happy to act as tour guide (as we did) then it makes for a fabulous introduction to the Amalfi coast.
Are you staying in Ravello? It's pretty close to heaven!
This is very helpful information as we want to do the same. Can you advise whether you have to change trains at Naples? Many thanks.
Actually, Vietri Sul Mare FS Train Station technically might be the closest train station to Ravello and the Costiera Amalfitana. However, many fast trains like ES Eurostar and IC Intercity don't stop in Vietri.
Take a Van from Naples to Ravello which should be around €130 for up to 6 persons.Try DriveAmalfi,email firstname.lastname@example.org
For those who get carsick, want to take a boat, and don't mind walking a bit(2 blocks out to the ocean and down a pier), one could use a ferry from Salerno Porto Turistico behind Salerno Piazza della Concordia to Amalfi and then a cab up to Ravello:
There's a charge of around €1.50 for each piece of luggage taken aboard.
I heard that there is a ferry between Naples and Amalfi...is that a good possibility? Then take the bus up to Ravello....
