Pompeii tours from Naples cruise terminal


When you decided to have a cruise stopping in Naples and if you researched on the transportation to explore the area, you must have thought that it would be impossible to visit even a small part of the many landmarks around Naples in one day. In fact, if you had to rely on public transportation to reach Pompeii from Naples cruise port, the only choice would be to buy a ticket to take a city bus going to the central train station, then queue again there with many other tourists to get a ticket for a local train, reaching then Pompeii station and walk for some time to reach the ruins entrance. It will literally take a few hours just to do that! Not to mention how long it would be to visit the towns of Sorrento, Positano, or Amalfi. You would spend more than half of the day just queuing and standing on crowded buses and trains and you would have to choose only one location to visit.
