Naples is the main transportation hub for southern Italy with several major train lines. The train and bus stations are in the huge Piazza Garibaldi, on the eastern side of Naples. Naples has an airport, Aeroporto Capodichino, with flights to other parts of Italy and to Europe (International naples airport). A bus connects the airport with Piazza Garibaldi. Ferries and hydrofoils run from Naple's Molo Beverello to the islands of Capri, Ischia, Procida, and Sardinia.
To get from Roma Termini, Rome's main train station, to Napoli Centrale, Naples' main train station, there are several train options. Trains run directly between the two stations so most trains don't require a change at another stop. Trains run from early morning until late at night (currently 22:13).
Here are options, starting from the least expensive:

  • Rapido (R) and Regionale - the slowest and least expensive trains take nearly three hours. Rapido trains usually have only second class with no seat reservations.
  • IC and ICplus - Intercity and Intercity Plus trains take just over two hours. They have first and second class compartments and seat reservations can be made (mandatory on ICplus). Cost is almost double the cheapest rapido fare but since trains can be crowded, having a seat reservation is a good idea.
  • ESA or TAV - Eurostar trains high speed: they take less than two hours, have first and second class compartments, and seat reservations are mandatory. These are about triple the lowest rapido fares but much faster. Note: there are some Eurostar trains that go to other stations in Naples (not Centrale).
