Shall we talk about Naples today? What about? Well, will you be in Rome for several days and would like to visit a special city, coming and going on the same day? How to get to Naples from Rome, for example? Naples is located 207 kilometers from Rome and is the third most populous city in Italy (in 1st place is Rome and in 2nd, Milan) and is the capital of the Campania region. Famous in the world for music, for being the birthplace of PIZZA, for its history and for its historic center, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Anyway, there are plenty of reasons to visit this city! Let’s find out now How to go to Naples from Rome? Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

1) How to go to Naples from Rome? WITH A GROUP TOUR

This option is PERFECT for those who want to be calm and without having to think about organizing their trips. It is worth remembering the following: many of these tours are usually done in large groups and with guides in Spanish or English. Group tours are a great alternative for those who do not want to spend so much and for those who are not used to traveling alone and therefore prefer to be with other people, where you will have a manager who will organize all the day’s tours! That way you don’t have to worry about anything! Just being rested and willing to visit magnificent places!

Advantages

  • IDEAL option if you are alone, as a couple or with up to seven friends!
  • Save time that you would probably waste going to the train stations to catch the trains, or with transportation to get to the tourist places to be visited.
  • Visit more cities on the same day!
  • Spend less time on travel, taxis, trains and buses.
  • You can enjoy a “bicchiere di vino” (glass of wine) during lunch without having to worry about driving later :), since in Italy the laws are strict against those who drive after drinking!
  • You travel safely and comfortably!

Disadvantage

  • There is practically none! Just the issue of adapting to the program of the day, and meeting the tour schedule!

Important

  • Remember to always check customer testimonials before proceeding with the booking.

2) How to go to Naples from Rome? WITH THE TRAIN

There are many train and timetable options from Roma Termini Station. I advise this transport so that you can enjoy the day more, starting at about 07:00 am. You can buy tickets directly at Termini Station (best to buy the day before) or buy online through the Trenitalia website.

Did you know?

Trenitalia is the main Italian company dedicated to the management of rail transport. Find out here What is the difference between trains in Italy?. Buy your ticket online in advance and save a lot! To learn more, read our post “How to buy a train ticket in Italy?“.

Advantages

  • Ideal option for people who like to do things at their own pace.
  • For people who are used to traveling, mainly by train.
  • For young people, for those who are backpacking.
  • And especially for people who want to save money and are in no hurry!

Disadvantages

  • For families with young children and for elderly people it ends up being very tiring. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT AT ALL!
  • Having to adapt to the fixed schedules of the round-trip trains.
  • Having to go to the sights alone, without knowing the city or speaking the local language.
  • Time wasted on public buses from railway stations to places where tourist attractions are located or money you will spend extra on taxi once you reach your destination.
  • Another detail worth mentioning: get ready because, generally, the regional railway trains are very bad and sometimes very dirty, so don’t create high expectations! If you use the train, always choose the high speed train to avoid this type of problem.
  • One more thing: the time that is lost with all these trips, could be used to get more out of the city visited!

3) How to go to Naples from Rome? WITH A RENTED CAR

You can go to a Rent a Car and rent the car for a day to go to Naples (Pompeii) or Capri. I advise it only if you want to visit Naples and another city together. If you are just going to go to Naples, better to choose the train or a private tour, because it is very difficult to drive in Naples.

Visiting Naples by Car

In my opinion, visiting Naples with a rental car is not an ideal idea. Naples is a very big, chaotic city and, it’s not meant to raise controversy, but unfortunately Naples is very dangerous, so if you choose this option I advise you to pay full insurance for the car. This way we avoid an unpleasant surprise and we will not spoil the trip. In addition to being a big city, you will end up wasting a lot of time in traffic and trying to understand where you are going, but if you are going to visit only Naples, and the other locations I mentioned before, this is certainly a good option.

Good to know!

Among the first options, precisely because it does not have fixed times for sure the rental car is the ideal choice. It is always complicated to drive on roads that we do not know – it depends on person to person and the type of trip you are used to. This option is ideal if you like to drive! – IF YOU’RE DRIVING: DO NOT DRINK!

Pay attention!!!!

In addition, it is important to know that in tourist cities there are places (old town) where PARKING is NOT ALLOWED, and can only be used by residents! So it is important not to go to these places so as not to take unnecessary fines. In Italy it is common for them to tow the car or put that hubcap that blocks the vehicle’s exit! Be careful!

How to understand what these places are? See this post that talks about it, but in any case another tip for those who are unsure about it, is to park a little outside from the center and take a walk to reach the area, spending a little more, by taxi or other public transport.

Benefits

  • If you are in a group with 4 or 5 people it will be a great option instead of taking the train;
  • Great for visiting more places on the same day, at your time and pace;
  • It is the best form of transport for people who are used to driving anywhere and it is easy to locate!
  • IF YOU DRIVE: DO NOT DRINK!

Disadvantages

  • Generally, those who drive cannot enjoy the beautiful view around, because you can’t take your eyes off the road!
  • Extra expenses with GPS (average price of € 15.00 – A DAY) so you don’t get lost so much.
  • Another thing, folks: to drive in Italy, as I have explained several times, is it essential to have an International Driver License AND your original driver license (in English) or with an official translation, ok?! If you don’t have these documents: DO NOT DRIVE, as you will have a lot of problems if you are stopped by the Italian police!  * So before you travel to Italy don´t forget to check if your country is listed as one that needs the PID and get everything ready to go.  READ ALSO: DO I NEED THE IDL TO DRIVE IN ITALY?
  • Those who drive cannot drink, the Italian laws on this are very strict and you take the risk of getting a really huge fine. So if you intend to taste great Italian wine during lunch pay attention! Don’t risk ruining your vacation!
  • It is not a suitable option for people who do not have the confidence to ask for information, especially if they do not speak Italian, as with the train or the bus not knowing the territory you can end up wasting precious time that could be used for tourist visits.

Traveling by car in Italy

How about if I give you a rental car option? Are you ready for it? If you are renting a car be sure to read our posts in the section Driving in Italy on the blog Your Travel to Italy. In addition to car itinerary tips, we have everything about signage, tolls, roads and many more tips.

4) How to go to Naples from Rome? WITH A PRIVATE TOUR

The last option is a private tour.  The advantage of the private tour is the total freedom to decide your own time, not having to wait to leave, wasting unnecessary time and using it to get to know other places. In addition, the tour departs comfortably from your own hotel, which is important when you have little time available to visit a few places. In addition, of course, the arrival will not be at the train or bus station, but directly at the tourist spot you want to visit. And if you book in advance, you will often be able to have the driver in your own language, so you can easily ask for clarification about the trip.

This type of tour is ideal for VIPs and for small groups of friends or for the elderly. This type of service guarantees absolute comfort for those who travel. Basically, you should just enjoy the tour without the stress of attending train, subway, bus schedules, or worrying about where the main places to be seen are!

  • You can enjoy a “bicchiere di vino” (glass of wine) during lunch without having to worry about driving afterwards :), since in Italy the laws are strict against those who drive after they drank (even a small amount of alcohol);
  • You won’t have to worry about train or bus schedules, you won’t have to worry about whether you will be able to return to Rome or not.
  • No need to ‘stick to’ schedules and itineraries.
  • You will save a LOT of time, which you would lose traveling by bus and train.

Disadvantages

  • The value is a little higher, but a worthwhile investment! Especially if you like to do everything on your own time.

Hotel I suggest near the Historic Center

If you are passionate about art and would like to stay in the center where you can move around walking, as well as having countless possibilities for places to have lunch / dinner or a snack, I advise you to stay in the historic center. Regions near the Trevi Fountain, the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Imperial Forum and the Villa Borghese, Piazza Spagna and Piazza Navona can be considered as “historic center”. These are the most expensive areas, but you will be close to everything, literally!

If you want to save a great option is the B&B, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices.

If you prefer a good hotel, I have three options that I really like, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices;)

Hotels that I suggest near the San Giovanni Region

For those who want to find cheaper alternatives in quiet areas, but at the same time close to the means of transport to the center, I suggest the region of San Giovanni or Monti (near the metro stations San Giovanni, Castro Pretorio and Circus Massimo) – which it is a more residential neighborhood; therefore, more economical and quiet! And with just 15 minutes by subway you will be in the center too!

Hotel I suggest near Termini Station

For those who prefer to stay in neighborhoods that have good access to the rest of the city and at a better price, then you should choose accommodation in the surroundings of Termini Station (from where a dense network of public means of transport starts, serving both: the local people and tourists).

Hotels that I suggest in Trastevere

For those who prefer to “taste” authentic and characteristic Rome, there is nothing better than booking a hotel in Trastevere (on the outskirts of the city’s historic river), full of typical Roman history and traditions, known for the tortuous streets of sampietrini stones and the centers medieval style housing.

The neighborhood is in the historic center and to the right of the Tevere River, in the midst of a spectacular landscape, where each visitor can observe the countless churches and squares (such as Santa Maria in Trastevere). In addition, this neighborhood offers several local restaurants and canteens for those who want to try typical Roman cuisine.
