The train, Pompeii – Transportation

Transportation in Pompeii The Train

Pompeii is one of the important cultural and historical attractions in the country of Italy. An ancient Roman city, it was demolished in 79 A.D. when it was completely buried in lava as a result of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Because of this, it has been a popular tourists destination for over two centuries. The following are some of the best ways to get around and get to Pompeii.

Get Off at the Pompeii Scavi

The trip to Pompeii from Naples only takes about 40 minutes and about the same to get there from Sorrento. If you don’t want to lug your bands around all day as you sight see, you can store them at the station of a nominal fee. Just be sure to pick them up by the cut off time which varies day to day. The train station is close to the Pompeii Visitors Center.

Take a Day Trip While in Rome

A visit to Pompeii is a popular day trip for those vacationing in Rome. It is a popular destination because, although it is ancient, it is still mostly intact, making it an ideal trip for those interested in Roman history. If you are traveling to Pompeii from Rome, be sure to leave as early as possible and buy your tickets the night before. The best train to take is the Eurostar Train. The train takes about 30 minutes.

Take a Cab to the Station

The best way to get to the train station in town is to take a cab. It is fairly inexpensive. Make sure that you agree on the price before you get in the cab. The drivers picking you up at the port will try to charge you more than you need to pay.
