Naples port to train station Afragola

Hi there- we land by ferry from Ischia to Naples port at 12.20 then we have a train from Afragola scheduled at 13.40. Do u think that is enough time?

Are you 101% sure your train stops only at Afragola station and not also at Napoli Centrale?

There are only two departures from Napoli Afragola between 13:00 - 13:59, so the OP is probably referring to the 13:39 Italotreno to Milano. This train starts at Napoli Centrale at 13:22.

Your only realistic option is to get on the train at Napoli Centrale, even if you've bought a ticket starting at Afragola. It's the same price either way.

So the question really is whether there is enough time to get to Napoli Centrale from Molo Beverello if you arrive at 12:20 and need to be there by 13:22. The answer is yes, there is plenty of time.

You could take a taxi for the fixed fare of €13, a bus (#151) for €1,10, an express bus (Alibus) for €5, or the metro (line #1) for €1,10.

Thanks our tickets are definantly departing Afragola to Rome Termini at 13.40pm. Is there many taxis at the Port? I think we should be ok, but I don’t know how the distance tfe I’m the port to the station and was concerned about timing!

What we are telling you is that this is the same train that departs from Napoli Centrale at 13:22, its first stop is Napoli Afragola at 13:39. Just go to Napoli Centrale and get on there.

By taxi there is no fixed fare to Afragola so you'd have to pay the meter rate. The best case in the middle of the day is probably about 40 minutes (14 miles but through heavy city traffic).

You have to know despite its name "Napoli Afragola" that station is not in Naples actually, it is quite far from the city and barely it exists a road to get there. Go to Napoli Centrale instead.

My ticket says Roma termini to Napoli Afragola. Riding on the .italo in November. Are there busses outside to go to Positano? WHy would they even sell tickets to a distant place!

Ticket says Roma termini to Napoli Afragola. DO they have taxis and/or busses outside?

There are no normal bus services heading towards Positano at Afragola, and rather than a taxi you should pre-book a car service to Positano to meet your train.

Italo has its own special buses twice a day from Napoli Afragola to Sorrento. But these can only be booked simultaneously with a train from elsewhere, e.g. from Roma Termini. They cannot be purchased alone from Afragola.

To connect with normal public transport, you should continue on your train to Salerno and take a ferry to Positano from there. Or continue to Napoli Centrale, if the train terminates there.

I just took a quick look through the quadri orario on line and it looks like every Italo train coming from Termini that stops at Afragola next stops at Napoli Centrale. Some go on to Salerno and some end at Napoli Centrale.

I would get to Termini early on your travel day (or a day or two before if you're in Rome and have the time) and go to the Italo ticket office to see if you can have it changed to the Napoli Centrale. Plead ignorance, throw yourself on their mercy, the Italo employees may be more sympathetic than the folks at Trenitalia.

Even if they charge you a change fee it will be cheaper than paying for a car service all the way from Afragola. Unless, of course you're planning to use a car service from either station. In that case Afragola won't cost you that much more.

It's actually easier to go to Salerno rather than Naples because from Salerno you can get a ferry right to Positano, faster and less expensive than public transit options from Naples to Positano. Therefore, if they're going to make you buy an entirely new ticket I'd just go to Salerno.
