Getting To Naples

Reaching Naples is simple! The easiest way to get to the city is by high-speed train and routes run to Rome and many other major Italian transport hubs. Naples' main train station is called Napoli Centrale and both Trenitalia (Italy's national rail company) and private Italo trains arrive and depart here. Those coming to Naples from overseas will probably opt to fly into the Capodichino International Airport, the city's main airport where a number of direct international flights arrive and depart daily. Naples is also easy to reach by car; highway A1, also known as the Autostrada del Sole that runs the entire length of Italy north to south, passes through the city.

Getting to Naples by Train

The fastest and easiest way to reach Naples by train is via a high-speed Trenitalia or Italo train. The two train companies are very similar, so choose a train based on your schedule and budget.

It takes about four hours to reach Naples from Milan, three hours to reach Naples from Florence, and just over an hour to arrive from Rome.

You can find discounted tickets if you book in advance, but they generally cannot be changed or refunded so if you miss your train or travel plans change, you will not be reimbursed. We recommend taking that into consideration when booking, especially if you are catching the train after connecting from another train or flight that may be delayed. Regardless, you can always buy tickets at the station or online via the train company's app or website up until a few minutes before departure. Numerous trains arrive each hour in Naples, so you shouldn't have a problem finding a seat.

High-speed trains to Naples arrive in the Napoli Centrale station. On the lower level of this station, called Napoli Piazza Garibaldi, Circumvesuviana trains running between Naples and Sorrento arrive and depart; metro lines 1 and 2 also have stops on the lower level.

In contrast to a few years ago, the Naples train station is safe and guarded by security officers 24 hours a day. You should have no issues with safety inside the station, but should be cautious in the surrounding neighborhood late at night.

Getting to Naples by Car

You can drive to Naples easily by following the A1 motorway, though driving in the city itself and finding parking can be daunting. We suggest leaving your car in one of the outlying parking lots and garages near the exits for the motorway and beltway around the city, and take public transportation into the city center.

The least expensive parking lots and garages:
  • Parcheggio Brin: located at the motorway exit along Via Marina. From here, take tram n. 4 or one of the buses to the city center. Daily rate: EUR 8.
  • Policlinico: located at the beltway (tangenziale) exit near the Policlinico stop along metro line 1. Daily rate: EUR 6.
  • Colli Aminei: located at the beltway (tangenziale) exit near a metro line 1 stop.
