Circumvesuviana train to Pompei

I am arriving in Pompei on June 30th. We are staying overnight and carrying large (28 inch diameter) luggage. Is there above seat storage for luggage on this train? I am hearing nightmares about not even finding sitting room let alone luggage room.

Thanks for your help

Jana

The train does get crowded so you may end up standing. Keep your luggage right in front of you.

Depending on the location of your accommodation, you might do better to take a Trenitalia train to the Trenitalia station in Pompeii. You need to ask your accommodation which would be better.

Both trains are commuter services that will become crowded in the afternoon peak.

There is another alternative, the Campania Express. On this you will get a seat and there is room for your luggage: https:/…campania-express-2018-it

The Circumvesuviana is the local commuter train like a subway here in NY and at certain times it's packed. Do not leave your luggage unattended even if that means standing with it the entire way.
