Passionate about my adopted home, for me Naples is the perfect canvas. From its breathtaking vistas to its rich cultural heritage, I could live here a lifetime and never see it all, photograph it all, or write about it all.

      Hi Marco – you can purchase most tickets online at http://www.fsitaliane.it/homepage_en.html, but the easiest way is to buy them is at the station. The regional trains are around 11,00 euro and take about 2 1/2 hours. Inter City trains are around 23,00 euro and take about 2 hours. However, if you book far enough in advance, you can get a high speed Frecciarossa train for as little as 19,00 euro and you’ll be in Rome in 1 hour and 10 minutes. These tickets would have to booked in advance online at http://www.trenitalia.com.

    How does the Metro in Naples work?

    If you for example have an ArteCard for Tutta La Regione (which is first two museums free, plus discount on other museums and free transportation – naples metro, busses to amalfi coast, bus up to vesuvius, busses in naples, etc.) then how do you get on the metro in naples with it?

    Yes, you validate the card once on a bus or wherever you use it… but do you have to go through a turnsyle at the metro or re-scan the card? Is there no gate or turnstyle and you just hop on the train without having to scan a ticket?

    I’m going to have the Artecard and just wondered how the metro worked (turnstyles, taking passes and touching a touch-pad, etc)

      Hi Rob – yes, you do go through turnstiles to get on the metro. I believe this particular ArteCard is paper, so once validated, you should just run it through the machine to activate the turnstile. If it is plastic, there will be a touch pad on the turnstile.

    What about children? I’m soon to travel with my son who is 13 – we will be in Naples for one week.
    We are not EU (we are from Australia).
    What do I pay for him on the metro?

      Children your son’s age pay full price.

    Bonnie: To clarify … if one arrived in Naples in mid-October, it would not be possible to purchase a monthly pass until the 28th?

      That shouldn’t be a problem Jamie. Write your name on the back when you first use it and don’t forget, you must also validate the monthly in a ticket machine.

      Hi – Naples does have something similar for residents with disabilities. I believe it is a monthly pass, and it requires documentation and the completion of a form, so I’m not sure if you can get that as a tourist. Your best bet would be to check with the Information Point in the airport upon your arrival.
