Easy...

EuroStar (23 euros, 2nd class) Rome to Naples (Centrale Station), then Circumvesuviana (3.8 euros, local train) to Sorrento. If you leave by 8:45a, you can be in Sorrento for lunch.

Ditto. We did this as a family of four. It was easy, relatively inexpensive and doesn't take too long.

www.trenitalia.com for trains from Roma to Napoli (journey time 2-3 hours, depending on type of train, at least one train every hour). Alight at Napoli Centrale or Napoli Piazza Garibaldi (one station is above the other, so trains stop at one or the other). Then follow signs to the Circumvesuviana (www.vesuviana.it) and take the train to Sorrento (about one hour, every half hour).

It's a short train ride from Rome to Naples so book the 2nd class Eurostar and you will be fine. There aren't any reservations for the Circumvesuviana from Naples to Sorrento as it is a commuter train somewhat like a subway.

You can leave Rome around 8:45a via EuroStar (2nd Class) & Circumvesuviana and arrive in Sorrento for lunch. You can also go by boat, but you will need to cab over to the dock. The cost is a little more and the boats are less frequent, but the boat trip takes less time.
