How to get to Pompeii from Naples?

If you visit Pompeii, we recommend you to discover Naples. If you are driving, it is possible to take the A3 highway towards Salerno and take the exit for Pompeii. If you prefer to use public transportation, you can take the train called Circumvesuviana from the Naples train station to the Pompeii Scavi station, located a few minutes walk from the archaeological site.

Our Top 5 on our map

Many campsites are located in front of or in the immediate vicinity of the site, some are a little noisy because they are also close to the main roads.

We advise you to choose a remote campsite, 15-20 minutes walk away, where you will have a more comfortable setting and better prices.
