If you are trying to figure out the best way to get there from Rome, you have several options to choose from – planes, trains, or automobile – find whichever one works best for you.
Rome to Naples by Train
You have your choice of how fast you want to get to Naples and how much you want to spend to get there. These trains run from Roma Termini directly to the station in Naples, Napoli Centrale, so you probably will not need a transfer at any point. They also run from very early in the morning to late at night.
Train options: The three different trains that can transport you from Rome to Naples are: the Regionale, Intercity, and Frecce. The Intercity train also has Plus trains available.
Regionale: This train is the least expensive but also the slowest. It will take you almost three hours to get to Naples. You do not have the option to reserve your seats and some of the trains only have second class available.
Intercity and Intercity Plus trains: Each of these trains takes a little over two hours and they do have both first and second class sections. You can reserve your seat, and in the Plus trains it is mandatory.
Frecce: Known as frecciarossa, frecciabainca and frecciargento, these trains are the fastest way to get to Naples from Rome. Most trains can get you there in about an hour, first and second class seating is available and you must reserve your seat.
Where to buy tickets: You can buy tickets directly at the station or any of the multilingual kiosks for your convenience. Trenitalia.com is another option but they may not accept credit cards.
