The best way to travel from Santa Margherita to Sorrento

I wish to travel from Santa Margherita to Sorrento instead day. Going by plane requires getting to Genoa first and at the other end getting from Naples to Sorrento. Is the train less complicated? Which is best?

The 12.42 train departure requires only two changes, at Chiavari and Napoli Centrale, but isn't very fast. From Rapallo (four miles away by expensive taxi) there is one option with only the one change in Naples, and a couple of faster options with two changes.

All other train options require three changes (or more). Travel by air also requires three changes - train to bus to plane to bus. Best will depend on your own criteria for price, speed and comfort which will depend on what date you are booking and the departure time chosen.

Thanks for the information. I now have options. The trip isn't until mid October so I have time.

You could take the train from SMN to Florence at 8:20 [change in Pisa]; next direct train to Napoli Centrale arriving at 3:03PM [or have some lunch, take a later one]. Rapallo to Naples it's 7:37 to 2:03 or 8:34 to 3:52.
