Naples to Sorrento train winter timetable

We are flying into naples on 29th Dec for three days. We want to visit Sorrento, Pompeii, Herculaneum etc, so will be hopping on and off of the Circumvesuviana trains. On the napoli unplugged website (napoliunplugged.com/naples-circumvesuviana-r…), they give the following link for the train timetable:

eavcampania.it/web/…sorrento_0.pdf

Does anyone know it this is the correct current timetable, valid for this winter? When i go directly to http://www.eavcampania.it/web and type in my travel info, it gives me different train times!!

Pls advise!!

It shouldn't change much - it is not a train for tourists primarily; it is local commuter train making many stops for locals who live in the area who, obviously, need it year round.

I have found the trains to run about 20-30 minutes to any of the locations mentioned - It isn't like you are going to be stranded unless they have a worker action/strike or something.

I'd just confirm times when you get there; while there was a schedule, I found they didn't really usually run right to the second per the schedule.

Personally, for purposes of checking, I'd use the website vs the PDF schedule as the site is live, so to speak.

That's the correct website. I just tried a dummy booking for Dec. 29 from Naples to Sorrento and there were no issues pulling up train options. It lists a train every half hour. I'm not sure what you mean by " it gives me different train times!!" Can you be more specific?

Thank you both of you! Its good to know they are so regular.

To the second post, what i meant is that earlier when i typed in random examples to see if the chart was correct, the results it brought back differed slightly or missed options out. but its fine, because we'll use it as a guide, thank you!

Are you staying in Naples or Sorrento?

Pompeii and Herculaneum will be very impressive, even better without the crowds but Sorrento is a tourist town, very pleasant, but a lot of it will probably shut down after the package season has closed.

A better bet would be to visit the Archeological museum in Naples, the historic centre, or get a ferry and spend a day on one of the islands, Capri, Ischia or Procida.

ShawFamily - You're there for New Year's Eve? Try and spend it in Naples on the bay front - you won't believe the fireworks. I was there last NYE and I've never seen anything like it - it was out of this world!
