help please on train from Milan to Naples

We are thinking of taking a train on July 26 from Milan to Naples but I've only found tickets, for two adults and one child, for 185 euro total. This seems very high. Does anyone know of a less expensive way to get train tickets? I am hesitant to take a flight because of the issue and cost of getting from the Naples airport to our ultimate destination, Sorrento. We could fly into Rome and take the bus from there to Sorrento, I guess. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

That's about right for three people. It's a rather long trip is why. If I were I'd think about paying extra to fly just to avoid wasting the better part of a day on a train.

If you can buy your tickets at least a day in advance you can take advantage of the Amica fare. 2nd-class tickets on a regular Eurostar train will cost you 54 euros each (I just checked at Trenitalia).

By the way, there is a cheap express bus you can take from the Naples airport to Sorrento.

Good luck.

That is the standard 2nd class fare for high speed trains ('AV') from Milan to Naples (73.20 for adults, half price for a child up to 12 y.o.). You could save a little on Inter City trains (IC/ICplus) although there aren't many of them left. One way or the other, book ahead or you may have to re-schedule your trip -- July 26 is a Sat. in peak season, just about the whole world is planning to take one of those trains!

Alternatively, there are low-cost flights to Naples from Milan (MXP) on EasyJet and Bergamo (BGY) on MyAir, but as happens with those flights, prices soar if you try to book just a few days before.
