Get to all of the Vesuvian Excavation Sites aboard Circumvesuviana’s “Archaeology” Trains

Forget driving, private tours, or expensive buses. Getting to the Campanian Archeological Sites around Mount Vesuvius couldn’t be easier, quicker or more economical than with the Circumvesuviana Railway, a regional railway system that operates six railway lines connecting the city center with Naples’ eastern suburbs around Mount Vesuvius.

Along Circumvesuviana’s Naples to Sorrento line you can reach the Vesuvian excavations of Herculaneum, Oplontis, Pompeii and Stabia. Along its Naples to Sarno line you can reach Herculaneum, Oplontis and Boscoreale. And, you can get to each site in less than an hour from Naples’ Circumvesuviana Station for just a few euros. UnicoCampania single trip tickets start at €1,80. Buy a daily pass for €4,70 and you can visit all the sites in one day – or at least try to anyway. What’s more, all of these sites are on the ArteCard Circuit, Campania’s discount museum pass, so you can save even more.

The Circumvesuviana Railway station is located along Corso Garibaldi, and is easily reachable from Naples’ Central Train Station via an underground walkway. You can reach the Central Train Station from the Airport or the Port of Molo Beverello on the Alibus, or if you are in the city, you can take Metro Line 2.

So hop on board and discover Campania’s most important archaeological sites, the Vesuvian Excavations with Circumvesuviana’s “A” Trains.
