    We took the train from Sorrento to Naples. The train itself was fine, but very very packed and stuffy. The train seemed to break down a couple times at the start, but was fixed fast enough. We arrived in Naples. The traffic outside the station is crazy!! Drivers beeping at pedestrians when the light went green for the pedestrians. We then tried to find the toilets because the train journey had been 1 hour and 30 mins from Sorrento. We had come to find out that the only available toilets that were open to public, cost €1 to use??? Mad, you don’t pay to use the toilet in most countries. We went to platform 1 to get the train home to Sorrento. There is zero air conditioning at the platform, so it felt extremely stuffy also. Nice train station but very very busy, so watch out where you are walking at all times.

    Napoli Centrale, a monster of a station
    An enormous station that offers excellent train services throughout Italy. The station facilities are all you could ask for and please don't forget a Euro coin if you want to use the toilets there, there are change machines, although I must admit I didn't notice them. I used the Italo Napoli to Milano high speed service, which reached a speed of 300 kph at times. For people with disabilities, Sala Blu offers outstanding assistance and support. As with all transport hubs be aware of your surroundings and the people nearby. Youll often see recommendations to avoid offers of help at ticket machines and this is well worth heeding. There are plenty of options available for food and shopping at the station.

    Main station in Naples
    This is the primary train station in Naples and is known as Napoli Centrale. This station was built in 1950s-1960s There are 25 tracks at Naples' Station Station. Its connected to an underground station called Napoli Piazza Garibaldi which we used to get to Pompeii. There are shops and restaurants, ticket office, tourist information office, and currency exchange. Seating is limited at this station so this can be improved. There is public transportation in front of the station, and a taxi queue. Our hotel organised a fixed price taxi from the station at 10 euros.

    Checks all the boxes as a convenient transportation hub
    This is one of the few European central train stations which is constructed post-World War II although the first station on this site dates back to the mid 19th century. Nothing really unique about the postwar modernism design of Napoli Centrale, but with 25 tracks and connections to virtually every corner of Italy, this train station checks the boxes in terms of functioning as a convenient transportation hub of the city. Shops and cafes in the station serves all the basic needs of passengers passing through the station. However, the surrounding exterior is a different story altogether - the homeless people camping outside the station and vendors hawking fake luxury goods at Piazza Garibaldi across the station certainly gives one the unsafe feeling as you walked outside the station.

We wanted a good safe luggage storage option at Naples Central railway station. After some research we visited Kipoint on the main platform. I asked the person who served us to confirm the cost for three days (as we were going to Capri) and he responded that it would be 6 euro per bag per day. When we returned three days later a different salesperson said the charge would be 64 euro - this was double the original price. He would not listen to any argument and denied that any conversation had taken place and refused to give us our bags unless we paid up! As we were running late for our train to Florence we reluctantly paid - but a warning to anyone who uses this company-don’t!!

The Napoli central station is an area of controlled craziness!! It is a big station with many platforms for arrivals and departures, plus many stores. Additionally, on the bottom floor is the Garibaldi Stazione for regional train tranportation. Outside you will find many modes of transportation. It is a great sea of people. Patience is a must. If you do not speak the lingo , it is hard to negotiate

Not as nice as the stations in the other large Italian cities, Napoli Centrale has a bit of a grit about it. Upstairs is the main station handling intercity trains (Circumsuviana, Campangia Express) and the lower level (Napoli Garibaldi) is the local train which can get you directly to Pompeii and Sorrento as well as around Naples in general. Some places for a fast meal, automated and in-person ticketing on the main level for the intercity trains.

I love Italy - But Naples is a disgusting place - full of roma woman beggars, Dippers and illegal Africa immigrants especially at the train station - ITS EASY TO SEE - they are controlled by shadowy men lurking outside by the taxis.
It feels unsafe - and the police and Army ? are there but do nothing constructive to stop it
they will nick your bags if your not attentive
sorry - its getting worse - all the surrounding streets are clearly controlled by African immigrants selling fake goods and using the streets as open air toilets
AVOID Naples and head North to ROME - Its much more interesting and safer
Italy is in trouble !!!

Arrived today in Naples bound for Sorrento for a lovely holiday, but not to be.
Used the train and it was so crowded that we were unaware that professional pick pockets were working on the train. They stole £200 from my husbands belt bag and unzipped my bag and stole my iPhone. Let me tell you that we are seasoned travellers, always have the bag across my front and they used professional distraction techniques and the money was gone and the phone gone and we did not even know it had happened.Do not think you are immune.
There is no CCTV! The police don't want to know, and no one cares to help.
They know the main line to sorrento is full of tourists, you are distracted and an easy target.
Stop using it and they will stop robbing us.
