What is the best way to reach the Pompeii archaeological site?
By private vehicle transfer:
The most comfortable, convenient and fast way to get to your tour on time! You can book a transfer service from Rome directly to the Pompeii archaeological site. The vehicle waits while you visit the site, then brings you back "home." See the available upgrades for this tour.
By train from Rome:
First, take a train from Rome (“Roma Termini”) to Naples (“Napoli Centrale”). You can view train times, prices and book your tickets in advance on www.trenitalia.com.
We recommend taking the fastest train, Frecciarossa, which takes 1hr, 10mins and costs about 58 euros per person, each way, in first class, or 45 euros per person, each way, in second class. The slower trains cost less, but run less frequently and are less clean and less comfortable.
Once at the Napoli Centrale train station, take the Circumvesuviana train, which you can access directly from the Naples station. Take the Napoli-Sorrento Circumvesuviana line. Trains leave about every half hour and cost around 5 euros for a round-trip ticket, arriving at the Pompeii Scavi – Villa dei Misteri stop in about 30 minutes. For more information about the Circumvesuviana train schedule, please view this website.
By train from Sorrento or Naples:
Take the Napoli-Sorrento Circumvesuviana line. Trains leave about every half hour and cost around 5 euros for a round-trip ticket, arriving at the Pompeii Scavi – Villa dei Misteri stop in about 30 minutes. For more information about the Circumvesuviana train schedule, please view this website.
