Trains in rural India have higher quality and are less rickety. Forget air conditioning, some of the trains don’t have electricity / lights. The timetables are at best an approximation. The train makes unexpected stops all the time (in addition to the hundreds of scheduled stops 1.5 km apart). I’ve never had a delay of less than 20 minutes with 30-40 being common. I suggest allowing for two hours from Naples to Sorrento (or the reverse) if you have any type of connection. I say even as someone who loves trains: if you have any way to avoid this train, do so. Otherwise, prepare to stand, swelter, and wonder if you’re living in the early 1900s.

Firstly we actually wanted to visit Pompeii but found out at the station that it is closed on a Monday so without any research we bought return tickets to Naples. Price for 2 was around €15 which is good value. The train to Naples had the hard plastic seats and the return cushioned fabric. Both were reasonably clean but covered in graffiti ( they all are ) any how so all ok but Naples was a huge let down. We spent 4 hrs there and did not walk through a street that was not full of litter , discarded furniture or men hanging around staring at you or more to the point what you have. It's like the city has given up on itself .... Overall the train was fine but go somewhere else.

Unbreathable air, sweaty, no social distancing at all, train delayed. Impossible to understand from the website that the express train needs a separate ticket. Next time we will better off walking.

While I spent a lot of time looking at reviews of this train and everyone’s comments on pickpockets, I took the informed decision of using this train to get to Naples as it was quite convenient and very cheap. As we got to the station in Sorrento there were two oddly dressed (by Italian standards) middle aged men standing right by the entrance to the platform. As soon as I saw them I knew what they were doing, I went 20m away from them and just watched what they were doing, they were literally staring at peoples bags and pockets as they walked through the gates. They noticed me watching them but didn’t pay too much attention to that. Our train arrived and I headed over to it still watching the two men, it was then that I noticed one of them pretending to smoke a cigarette ( it wasn’t lit) but he was staring at two ladies in pink while looking at another man who had already di boarded the train ( also dressed slightly oddly) In hindsight I think the unlit cigarette was to tell the man on the train that these two ladies were targets. We then boarded the train and the two pink ladies sat in front of us and then low and behold the 3rd man from the train changed carriages to sit next to the two pink ladies. He shifted seats once to get closer to the ladies and spent a considerable amount of time staring at their bags very obviously (they didn’t notice) then the second man (fake smoker) walked past the window where the pink ladies were sitting, he started at the layout of their bags and finally the third man came past following another young lady with an open bag. We decided to switch cars to the last one to avoid these guys knowing what was about to happen. As expected they pickpocketed a number of people, got off at the next 2 stops and then I guess headed back to Sorrento for round 2. Moral of the story is these guys are there in their numbers and are not hard to spot but you must be watching out for them. If they know you are watching them, they won’t do anything to you but really don’t go around with fancy watches, jewelry or gadgets and cash it’s just asking to be robbed. P.S they are also at Garibaldi station in the metro stop and again very obvious if you open your eyes.
