Guide to Pompei Train Station

Guide to Pompei Train Station

The archaeological site of Pompeii is one of Italy’s most popular attractions, and yet most people don’t realize there is a modern Italian city with an almost-identical name - Pompei.

The train station that serves the ruins also one of the stations that serves the city, and it’s called Pompei Scavi-Villa dei Misteri. The Pompei station is on the Circumvesuviana line that runs from Naples to Sorrento and it’s a very short walk from the station to the entrance of the Pompeii site.

 

There are two platforms at the Pompei station, one for each direction of trains. One platform is for trains traveling from Naples to Sorrento, the other is for trains going the opposite direction. The station was opened in 1932.

 

The Pompei Scavi station is very small, though there is a bar and an information desk as well as restrooms available. Both platforms are wheelchair-accessible. There is no luggage storage available at this station. There are a number of sit-down restaurants nearby to cater to the Pompeii tourists, though most are rather overpriced.

 

Circumvesuviana trains are not part of the national Trenitalia network, so they have their own ticketing system. Tickets are inexpensive on this line and don’t require advance purchase or reservations, and the trains are all slow, regional trains. These trains don’t leave from the same area of Napoli Centrale station, either - they depart from Napoli Garibaldi station, which can be reached from inside Napoli Centrale by an internal passage.
