Pompei Daytrip From Rome on a Budget

Jump to last reply

A daytrip to Pompei Scavi from Rome is a popular undertaking for many travellers, who typically choose between taking an organized bus tour or going "on their own".

Many travellers understandably prefer avoiding organized tours, which invariably place significant limits on the flexibility of a daytrip to Pompei, as well as actual time at destination. However, some have noted the steep fares of the fast trains between Rome and Naples (currently 88 Euros round-trip in second class on the fastest AV train).

Fortunately, it is possible to do this daytrip by using the trains and spending UNDER 50 Euros per person: taking the Intercity (IC) train in both directions, rather than the more expensive AV and ES trains.

The difference in fare is very significant: 41 Euros round-trip on the IC versus 88 Euros on the AV or 68 Euros on the ES (all fares are second class). The difference in travel time compared to the ES train is modest: only 18 minutes longer each way on the IC train. The time difference compared to the AV train is more pronounced: 53 minutes more each way on the IC train (due to the fact that the AV train takes the new high-speed rail line). AV and ES trains go non-stop between Rome and Naples. The IC trains usually make three very short stops en-route (Latina, Formia and Aversa).

Seats on the IC, ES and AV trains are all reserved. First class seats are not necessary on this route. These trains are all non-smoking and have air conditioning (which does not work 100% of the time). Many travellers have noted that the IC trains are not as "nice" as the ES and AV trains.

In addition to the Trenitalia fare, travellers must also pay 4.80 Euros round-trip for the 35-minute Circumvesuviana commuter train ride between Napoli Garibaldi (underground to Napoli Centrale) and the Pompei Scavi-Villa dei Misteri station, across the street from the entrance to the archeological site. Seats on the Circumvesuviana all all non-reserved. Allow at least 15-20 minutes to connect between trains (based on actual arrival time at Napoli Centrale). These commuter trains run every half-hour.

There are two IC train departures out of Roma Termini station which are particularly useful: at 6:27 a.m. and at 7:27 a.m. Travel time to Napoli Centrale is approximately two hours.

The archeological site opens at 8:30 a.m.

On the return trip, there are IC trains from Napoli Centrale back to Roma Termini at 16:30, 17:30, 18:38, 19:30 and 20:30.

You don't need to pay nearly 100 Euros to see Pompei from Rome: it can cost less than half this amount, as this posting bears out. Of course, the primary "trade-off" in using the IC trains is the longer travel time involved: travellers are saving money by spending more time sitting on a train instead of enjoying Pompei. It comes down to a personal decision.

Fares and schedules quoted above are believed to be accurate as of the date of posting, but are not guaranteed to be correct, since they are taken from internet sources which are not always current. Travel times are accurate but not guaranteed to be exact, and are always subject to travel conditions, delays and other unforeseen circumstances. The IC train departures noted above are not necessarily daily. The Trenitalia website should be consulted by inserting the actual travel date. Also, fares, schedules and routings are subject to change and should always be verified prior to start of travel. The foregoing is general information, and should not be relied upon in the absence of individualized travel planning.
