Getting to Paestum from Naples (cruise port)

Hi, I am interested in visiting Paestum while my ship is docked in Naples, Is this feasible to do in one day and can anyone tell me the easiest and fastest way to get there. The cruise ship does not seem to have any tours in that area.

Thanks in advance.

The easiest and fastest way would be to use a rental car.

By public transport, you could take a tram or taxi to Napoli Centrale station and a local train to Paestum. The journey takes about 90 minutes. The station at Paestum is about half a mile from the ruins.

Depends how long you have in port. I've gone there using a private car service and driver which although expensive is convenient, maximises your time at the site and is guaranteed to get you back to the ship in time. The museum at the Paestum site is not to be missed and will take some time to see as well. Use the cruisecritic site and see if anyone else on your cruise wants to go to Paestum this way and split the cost with them.
