Naples in a day?

We are going from Sicily to the Almafi via the overnight Ferry to Naples. Is it feasable to arrive in Naples in the AM, visit the National Museum and then catch a train to Almafi- All in one day?

Hi Kim,

Depends on the day you arrive and how much luggage you have.

The Archaeological Museum is closed Mondays.

Isn't it closed on Tuesdays? I only know this because I've been building a file for our trip and most of my books and reference sources say Tuesday.

Yes, it's closed on Tuesdays.

You can leave luggage at Naples Station, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Hope this helps ...

Hi kim,

After you have stashed your luggage at the Naples Centrale station, look for a tobacco shop and buy your metro tickets.

Go downstairs to the metro and take the train to Piazza Cavour. You will see signs directing you to the Museum.

Thank you!
Tabacco shop- as in cigars?
Also, do you know if the ferry lets off near the train station?

The ferry dock is a 10 minute tram (- or taxi) ride from Napoli Centrale Station.

You can get metro tickets at the metro station ticket office, downstairs from the luggage store.

Hope this helps ...

Does anyone know when the last train leaves from Naples to Almafi?
And- Can the Museum in Naples be completed in one day?

There are no trains to Amalfi, just buses and boats. I've never gone there from Naples, only from Rome (train to Salerno then bus) or Ravello (taxi) but put out a call for GAC - he is an expert on the best way of getting from A to B via public transport in Italy.

Hi Kim,

From Naples you take the Circumvesuviana train to Sorrento and then the SITA bus to Amalfi.

You shouldn't try do do both Naples and the Amalfi Coast on the same day.

You can see the Archaeological Museum in Naples in a few hours.

You might find the Naples part of my trip report helpful.
