private car pick up in naples
so often it is suggested when traveling to sorrento that we should take the train from rome's airport to termini then termini to naples then have a private car take us to our hotel in sorrento.<BR><BR>how do we logisticaly arrange for the driver in naples to be there when we arrive. keep in mind that our plane should land at about 9:00am then we should be at termini by 11:00am and in naples by 1:00pm. what happens if our plane arrives several hours late like it did the last time we visited?<BR><BR>please offer practical suggestions.<BR><BR>jacob

Jacob-- why not hire the private car to pick you up at the airport and drive you all the way to Naples---<BR><BR>email [email protected] and ask for Andrea<BR><BR>My plane was 2 hrs LATE due to an air traffic controllers strike and then it took them 45 min to unload the luggage from the plane---and the DRIVER waited for us outside of the Customs Hall with our name on a board--TERRIFIC to deal with--would use them again in a heartbeat!

Why not just get the train from Naples to Sorrento? It's easy and cheap, takes about an hour. <BR>Kay

Ditto on the car pick up at the airport. We used Positano 5 star limo--they picked up at the Rome airport---we were an hour late and our driver was right at the baggage claim with our name on a sign--with baggage and after a night of flying, we weren't up for the adventure of all the additional steps. Also with more than 1 person, the ultimate price becomes more and more reasonable--and we were at out hotel in time to enjoy the day. We highly recommend it. Out total bill was $270.<BR><BR>Good luck,<BR>Robyn France

When we went to Sorrento, we bought a plane ticket to Naples (we had to change planes in Rome). When we arrived in Naples, we went to the bus ticket office at the airport. The bus is practically right there ( distance is like taking your luggage to the parking lot)We have a lot of luggage, we are not young or adventurous and it was very easy. The bus lets you off in the center of Sorrento. The taxi stand is right there. On our return, the hotel people arranged for a private car and driver because our flight was too early for the bus schedule. For your added information, the people at the hotel were able to get us a nice discount. Hope this helps.
