Train from Naples to the Amalfi Coast
The best way to get from Naples to Sorrento, gateway to the Amalfi Coast, is to book a shuttle transfer and NOT a train. Click the 'Book Shuttle' button for details.
Naples is a major Southern Italian city with a big train station and proximity to major tourist attractions like Pompeii and Vietri sul Mare. It's often the first destination for those traveling on to the Amalfi Coast. While incredibly popular, the Amalfi Coast has absolutely no train service.
The best way to get from Naples to the coastal gateway city of Sorrento (or back) is not by train but by shuttle. We recommend securing your transfer in advance—especially during the high season in summer. Book a shared shuttle transfer with us for a comfortable and safe ride.

Travel Between Naples and Salerno
To get to Salerno (the Amalfi Coast's other major gateway) from Naples, there are high-speed train options. Trenitalia's Alta Velocità (AV) trains run from Napoli Centrale train station 10 times on most weekdays for a total of 42 trains per day. That trip is quicker, with the fastest journey being just over half an hour, and ticket prices on this route range from $5-20. The first train leaves Naples at 5:40 a.m., the last at 8:10 p.m.
Amenities on Trains from Naples to the Amalfi Coast
The top of the line AV trains are Frecciarossa, and these train cars all come with air conditioning and power outlets in the seats for your convenience. There are both 1st-class and 2nd-class cars (1st-class passengers get a free drink and a choice of newspaper), and a cafe car that's available to all passengers.
Naples and Amalfi Coast Train Stations
Napoli Centrale is Naples' biggest station, and it's on Piazza Garibaldi which is a main hub for city and regional buses. There's also a Metro (subway) station connected to Centrale called Napoli Piazza Garibaldi. The area around the station is decidedly unappealing, so it's a good idea to know where you're going when you walk out of the station itself—whether that's a specific bus line or the taxi queue or you're meeting a greeter for your shuttle transfer.
The Salerno station is also relatively small, with only five platforms, and buses bound for the Amalfi Coast also stop near the train station.
