Where to leave luggage when day tripping - Naples/Pompeii/Sorrento/Amalfi?

So after lots of back and forth with my friend who is traveling with me we have decided with our one week in Italy we are flying to Rome and immediately taking the train to Naples. We will spend that day in Naples, then the next day go to Pompeii and end up in Sorrento, then the 3rd day we want to take a tour of Pasitano, Amalfi, etc... then head to Rome on the train late that night so that we wake up in Rome.

We are trying to figure out safe places to leave our luggage so that we don't have to drag it around everywhere.

1st option would be lockers in Rome train station - leave there for 3 days and then get it when we are done with our south of Rome tour.

2nd option would be lockers in Naples train station - leave for a day or two.

anyone have any experience - is this a safe plan? any other ideas on storing luggage?

I dont know if they all do, but most train stations have a storage room and they are very secure.

Naples does have luggage storage in it's central train station, as does Rome.

And Pompeii has luggage storage, so you can leave your bags there while you visit the site en route between Naples and Sorrento.

Wherever you spend the night after Pompeii, your hotel should be able to store your baggage while you go to the Amalfi coast and back.

So after Pompeii, you could continue on by bus from Sorrento and spend the night on the AC itself. Then maybe bus (or boat if in season) to Salerno and train back to Rome from there.

Pompeii train station does not have luggage storage. There is luggage storage at the entrance to Pompeii.

>>>I dont know if they all do, but most train stations have a storage room and they are very secure.<<<

Only the larger/main stations have storage.

I think what you need to do is pick one hotel, possibly in Sorrento (which has easy transit to everywhere - by train, bus or boat) , and just stay/leave your luggage there. Once you hit Naples everything is within a very small area and moving from one hotel to another while hauling luggage around makes no sense at all. You can easily see all of these things from one base - and then pick up your luggage from the hotel when you head back to Rome.

Perhaps I can offer a local resident's perspective?

On the second morning, from the main station (*) in Naples, take the Circumvesuviana to Pompei Scavi station and drag your stuff to the site's main Porta Marina entrance, just outside of which there's an FOC place to leave it whilst exploring the ruins....


Afterwards Sorrento is only some 30 minutes, and maybe 15 miles, away: just jump back on the train, it's all the same line...


No idea what you might do with your bags on the third day - but unless you want to be returning to wherever you've left them prior to heading off to Rome, you'd be stuck with carting them around.... however retracing your steps really isn't a very good way to be spending that day...

Quite probably then, dropping off almost everything at Naples station, and taking just a day pack would indeed the best answer?


Then, that last day, you could go from Sorrento along the AC as far as Salerno or Vietri sul Mare (the only place on the Coast with a railway station, and the one that would be my preference) and, from either, use one line or another to take you back through fresh territory to Napoli Centrale - where you could retrieve your other belongings and change onto the Rome train.

For photos from several of the places see...



(*) This may also be of help...

and these...
