Civitavecchia to Naples

I am trying to travel to Naples central station after I finish the cruise @5am. What is the cheapest and convenient way to go? If I travel by train, should I prebooked the ticket to save money and long line up? If I prebooked the ticket, do I need to stamp it before I board the train and approx how long do I need to spare for customs, travel from port to civitavecchia station......if there is a change of train in Rome termini, is it easy to found?........

Tickets purchased on line do not need to be time-stamped before boarding.

On trenitalia.com/tcom-en enter Civitavecchia in the "from" field and Napoli Centrale in the "to" one. Pick an hour of departure based on the scheduled arrival time of your ship at Civitavecchia.

The site will tell you if, where and when you'll have to change. If you can find flights and gates in huge airports all around the world I guess you should be able to find your track in a relatively smaller station. Don't worry!

On trenitalia.com walk-up fares are called BASE, all the other fares you'll see on the site (SuperEconomy etc.) are discounted ones. Those are cheaper, but come with restrictions on changes and/or refunds. Even BASE fare tickets are wasted one hour after the departure of the booked train.

Thanks

Just want to confirm that I should booked the base ticket with no restrictions, in that case I can change it anytime to another departure train within an hour, correct?

I still want to know approx how long it will take for me to go thru the customs and travel from port to civitavecchia station? (Assuming I am 1st group who can get off the ship)

If I booked the ticket from civitavecchia port to Naples that requires a transfer in Rome termini, I miss the second train due to the late arrival of the first one, what can I do? Am I responsible for it?

Why would you buy in advance a BASE fare ticket? Trenitalia doesn't need your money before the day of travel! Get the tickets to Napoli either at Civitavecchia station or on trenitalia.com after the ship has docked (I guess you have free internet access on those ships).

> Am I responsible for it?

No, in this case Trenitalia would protect you even if you had purchased the most discounted type of ticket. Note that You wouldn't be allowed to board a later train, you must go to the counter first.

Hello,

I am planning my trip to Naples, also leaving the cruise ship terminal in Civitavecchia, Rome! I was wondering how you got about finding the train station from the port of Civitevecchia, (and how your whole commute was).

My itinerary is leaving "Civitavecchia" and heading to "Napoli Centrale" with the transfer in "Rome Termini", as well. I am also looking to book through the "TrenItalia" website. should i prepay at $19 CAD, or wait until the day of (as i do not know what time I am disembarking the cruise ship).

Your help would mean the worldddd ! :)

Cheers,

-Jo

Take into account your ship's scheduled arrival time. It takes a while for the crew to handle the arrival paperwork. Then they start grouping passengers to disembark. Most passengers will be off and have their luggage by about 10:30 or 11:00 (because they have to empty the ship and get the cabins cleaned to start boarding a new set of passengers by mid-afternoon).

The buses that take people from the ship to the port entrance only take about 5 minutes. The connecting buses to the train station might have a little wait to fill and then get to the station in about 15 minutes. So if you book on a train leaving Civitavecchia at noon or afterward, that should give you plenty of time. Allow yourself more if you just want to be sure..

Thanks for the tips! Is the "Trenitalia" train station fairly close to the port? I have never been to Civitavecchia and I am traveling solo.. so just getting an idea of where to head once I am outside of the cruise port. Did you buy your train ticket prior or the day of?

Appreciated!
