This guide on how to get from Rome to Naples It will help you organize the transfer to one of the most authentic and charming cities in Italy.

Located 240 kilometers south of Rome, Naples is well connected by train and bus with the Italian capital and other cities. In addition to public transport you can choose to rent a car to travel this distance in just over two hours on the A1 motorway and then use it to know the nearby Amalfi Coast, although we recommend using the first one if you do not want to make a route through the area.
Another less advisable option is the plane being more expensive and wasting a lot of time traveling from the city to the airport and vice versa.

Based on the experience of our trip to Naples, in which we made this transfer, we explain the different options of get to Naples from Rome, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. We start!

Train from Rome to Naples

The fastest way to go from Rome to Naples is to take one of the high-speed trains of the Italo or FrecciaRossa companies. These trains leave from the central station of Roma Termini, make the journey in one hour and 10 minutes and are priced between 15 and 30 euros. You can save money by booking tickets in advance.

To get to Termini you can take metro lines A and B or with several bus lines such as H, if you are staying in the Trastevere neighborhood.

Another cheaper option is to take a regional train that takes more than 3 hours or the Intercity that takes more than two hours, for about 13 euros.
Once at Naples Central Station, if you do not have the accommodation nearby, you have the Piazza Garibaldi stop from which subway lines 1 and 2 depart, which pass through most points of interest in the city.

If you have only one day and want to learn more about the history of Naples, we recommend you book this high-speed train tour with a guide in Spanish.

How to get to Naples from Rome by bus

The bus is the cheapest way to go from Rome to Naples by having tickets starting at 9 euros. This route is made by several companies such as Flixbus or Marinobus and usually lasts between two and a half hours and 3 hours, and they leave you near the central station of Naples.
In addition to taking longer than the train, the stations from which they leave in Rome: Autostazione Tiburtina and Anagnina, are far from the center, so we believe that it does not compensate for the price difference.

Another comfortable option by bus is to book this two or 3 day tour with a guide in Spanish from Rome that includes a visit to Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri.
