    Hi Jeanie,

    Sorrento is located only on a private rail line called the 'Circumvesuviana Railway'. This rail line runs between the Naples Piazza Garibaldi station and Sorrento. Since these trains are privately owned and operated, the tickets can only be purchased locally when you're there.

    The Circumvesuviana trains from Naples to Sorrento depart every 30 minutes throughout the day, and the ride takes 55-68 minutes.

    To get from Rome to Naples, you would take either a Frecciarossa high-speed train, a Frecciabianca high-speed train, or an Italo high-speed train.

    You would purchase tickets from Rome to Naples by searching the route under 'Tickets & Reservations' on the homepage of our website, Generally, these trains can be booked once within 120 days of an intended departure date.

    Conveniently, the Piazza Garibaldi station is located in the lower level of the same building as the Naples Centrale station, which is considered the main rail station in Naples where most trains from elsewhere in Italy will arrive into (including trains coming from Rome). Since the Circumvesuviana to Sorrento departs from the Piazza Garibaldi station, you would just want be sure to choose a train from Rome that arrives into the Naples Centrale station.

    Trains provide sufficient space to store luggage. There is space between seats or in the overhead racks. In many cases, there is also space at the ends of each train car. A typical amount of luggage per person is 2 large items, plus one smaller item. Regarding luggage, the general rule is that you can take on board as many items as you can carry. Luggage is the responsibility of the passengers.
