Italy by train

Anyone travelled through Italy by train? Thinking of going solo in November. Fly to Rome spend a few days there with a trip to Pompeii then train to Verona and Florence before flying home.m

      I haven’t done it myself but as a travel agent I could recommend a company that specialises in this sort of holiday, and send you some itineraries, if you would like more Information drop me a message [email protected]

      I’ve travelled overland through France down to Italy stopping in Rome-Lake Maggiore-Positano–Pompeii-Capri-Amalfi -week in Sorrento back through Switzerland- best way to travel see much more than flying

      Was organised Coach Trip this was many years ago company no longer exists did include some trips but had 1 week in hotel in Sorrento so we organised our own trips to Capri etc

      Friend toured Europe with his family by train 3 or 4 years ago, said it was a doddle. Just be sure to leave yourself enough time when getting across a city to pick up connections.

      Sounds like a great trip . I was in Sorrento March 2020 , on my own – did Capri ,Pompeii so if you go that far you must do the amalfi coast ,positano, Amalfi , Ravello . It’s stunning 🤩

      Oh, yes! It was the most amazing and most romantic trip of my life. I decided to escape to this magical land. My friend and I got really drunk then and wanted to be in Rome in a couple of days. It turned out that it was very difficult to find tickets and we searched for a long time on the web until we found a website https://www.dbauskunft.net/de/ where you bought tickets for both the plane and the train. And you know what? After this magical journey, my life got better very quickly and the memories will remain with me for the rest of my life.

      I love Italy. When I arrived in Italy and the trains were on strike 😬.

      Ive only travelled from Rome to Pompeii and back. It was about 20 years ago but back then our train was late. Being British we thought nothing about it but another passenger came over and told us that if a train is late over, i think it was 25 mins, then we were entitled to a full refund.

      We filled in the form and did indeed get a full refund.

      Would be worth checking what the upto date rules are before you go.

      Pompeii was wonderful but allow yourself more than one day there to get the most out of it

      I travel all across the globe with my work, Italy is my most favorite place on the earth, the people…the culture…the architecture, and the food……oh my the food is better than………( its amazing), I always travel by train in Italy, its easy and the service is second to none, and if you get stuck just ask someone they are a really helpful bunch.

      what a wonderful idea. I’ve travelled by train around the Pompeii area, from Naples to Sorrento. Not much further than that though I’m afraid. I found it easy, inexpensive and safe. Good luck. Enjoy

      I have done this before a few years ago. Well recommended.

      There is a website for Italian trains and tickets are available from 90 days before. It is recommended to book in advance and book your seat, and if booked in advance, very reasonable rates.

      To get from Rome to Pompeii, take a train to Naples and change for a local train, the 2nd train you cannot book in advance but they are once an hour and not crowded.

      Good luck and enjoy.
