Catania to Naples by Night Train: Any experiences?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip next March that includes getting from Catania to Naples. My two viable options appear to be a mid-day Alitalia flight for about €35 apiece for the two of us (plus, of course, at that price, a baggage fee, and airport transfers), or the overnight train that leaves around 11 PM and arrives in Naples at about 7 AM. For a 2-person sleeper compartment, it appears to be a bit more expensive than flying, but of course eliminates a night of lodging.

But if it doesn't work out well, it could also eliminate a night of sleeping, so I'm interested to know if anyone has made the trip that way. Since it involves the entire train being shifted onto barge to cross the Straits, I'm particularly interested in whether that's a sleep-killer, or if it's interesting enough to postpone sleep until across the water.

Thanks for any information or suggestions!
