The Campania Express is a convenient alternative to local trains to go to the most famous attractions in the region.
Naples is amazing! Yet, once here, it is impossible not to tell travelers to also explore the places in the Vesuvian area. Among them, there are stunning locations such as the excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the Railway Museum in Portici, the Sorrento peninsula, the main islands of the Gulf (Ischia, Capri, Procida).
To easily visit villages and towns of the Vesuvian area, you can take local trains. The simplest solution to move around this area is the local train which is called circumvesuviana. As suggested by the name, it is a train that connects Naples with the hinterland areas. This area is always crowded with students and workers who take the circumvesuviana train daily. That is why many people prefer to take the Campania Express train. Here’s how it works.
Campania Express, fundamentals
The Campania Express is an alternative to the Circumvesuviana train which allows you to go to your favorite destination more comfortably and quickly. This is due to the fact that the Campania Express is a direct train to the major attractions of the region.
The Campania Express makes several stops:
- Herculaneum excavations
- Pompeii – Villa dei Misteri
- Castellammare di Stabia – Faito cableway
- Vico Equense
- Meta di Sorrento
- Piano di Sorrento
The cost of the ticket is different as well. While the ticket for trains usually varies by distance, the Campania Express costs 15 euros for a single journey; the round-trip ticket costs 25 euros. Even if the cost of the ticket seems really high compared to the standards, the Campania Express ticket comes with several advantages. For example, round trip can be booked for different dates! Also, with one ticket you can take the Campania Express train all day long.
