Naples Centrale from Frecciarossa to Metropolitano train - not CV

Jump to last reply

We are taking the Frecciarossa from Rome down to Naples and I want to take the train to Pompei town to access the Ampitheater entrance to the ruins instead of the main entrance.

My question is that for the train,Trenitalia.com says 5 minute Urbano from Centrale to P.za Garibaldi and then a Metropolitano train from NPG to Pompei.
I read somewhere that the Metropolitano trains are one level down like a mezanine half way down to the Circumvesuviana level. I read somewhere else that they arrive at platforms 2-3, which appear at the end of the only map I could find of the ground level of Centrale.
I read somewhere else that the Urbano in this context means use an FS train (or others said a Metro) to move from one train station to another in a city like Rome with multiple stations.

My guess is that there is no reason (maybe not possible) to use a train or Metro from Centrale to the Metropolitano train in P.za Garibaldi. I am also familiar with train stations where a few tracks for regional trains are set back from the main terminal or separated somehow , but I would like to know where to go once off the train from Rome. I don't like wandering around Centrale and missing the connection.

I think we will buy the tickets form Naples-Pompei before leaving Rome so one less thing to do in Centrale when making the connection.

Anyone use a metropolitana from Centrale? (I know our alternative is the Circumvesuviana toward Poggiomario with stop at Pompei Santuario, but the metropolitana train connection is better.)
