There are two companies that support passengers looking to travel via train from Florence to Sorrento: Italo and Trenitalia. Each company provides passengers with route options traveling from Florence to Naples, where passengers are required to change to the service provided by Ente Autonom Volturno (EAV), which will operate the final leg of the journey. Typically, both train companies provide a fairly consistent daily service that presents travelers with morning, afternoon and evening options; however Trenitalia may have two or three-times more service options available. While Trenitalia has a greater number of train routes, and the company does provide options that run earlier, later and with greater frequency at mid-day, the duration of the options varies greatly. Most of Italo’s routes operate within a consistent duration, while Trenitalia has fast and slow options. What’s more, Trenitalia may require a transfer on the first leg of the journey—between Florence and Naples.
Typically, the first daily train will depart around 8:14 a.m. and the final train around 8:14 p.m. However, on weekends the first departure may be around 12:40 a.m., after which there’s a gap until about 5:45 a.m. when the schedule becomes regular. The final route on weekends is around 11:07 p.m. Trenitalia’s services operate a variety of train types, too; some routes run regional and intercity trains, while others operate Frecciargento and Frecciarossa fast trains. With several trains servicing the route, passengers have about 15 to 30 options daily, meaning there are several hours with multiple departures. All of the routes supported by Trenitalia terminate at Napoli Centrale, so passengers must transfer to a service by EAV to complete the journey. Travelers should note that a few Trenitalia routes require passengers to transfer once before arriving at Naples. These variations mean the Trenitalia routes can range from about 4h 30min to around 11h 30min; the longest usually being the overnight option.
The first route operated by Italo each day departs Florence at roughly 8:43 a.m., while the final departure typically leaves around 7:43 p.m. The schedule provided by Italo is fairly consistent throughout the week and passengers can expect the journey to run from about 4h 30min to around 5h. All of the roughly eight to 12 daily routes via train from Florence to Sorrento supported by Italo will end in Napoli Centrale, at which point passengers will need to transfer to a service run by EAV, which departs from the nearby Napoli P. Garibaldi.
Both Trenitalia and Italo typically have generous space available to passengers to store their luggage. Upon boarding the trains, travelers are responsible for putting their luggage away so that it is safe and secure for the journey and it does not obstruct the passage of other train customs. This includes bicycles, which are allowed on most trains, but they must be disassembled and packed in a bag for transport. Passengers may also travel with small pets for free. On Italo routes, small pets are not required to be in a container, whereas Trenitalia requires containers and their policy prohibits containers larger than 25in x 12in x 19.5in (70cm x 30cm x 50cm). Larger dogs are allowed onboard so long as they remain on a leash, are muzzled and a ticket has been purchased for them. The exception is for guide dogs, which travel for free. No animal is allowed to occupy a passenger seat, regardless of the class of ticket held by the passenger. On Trenitalia, ticket classes range from Standard to Executive; Italo offers Smart to Club Executive tickets. All passengers benefit from wi-fi and all passengers with limited mobility benefit from available support services, such as help boarding and disembarking from the train, wheelchair storage and other needs. Passengers requiring special assistance are encouraged to reach out to the train company about their needs in advance of their journey.
There are a variety of ways to affect ticket prices. For example, tickets for trains operating on regional or intercity train lines are typically lower when compared to routes that run fast trains. This can be particularly helpful for travelers who have greater flexibility with their schedule. Passengers who are comfortable booking a ticket for a fixed time will benefit from reduced costs by opting for a semi-refundable or semi-flexible ticket—tickets with choices and flexibility tend to incur an upcharge. Additionally, the Standard seats on Trenitalia and the Smart seats on Italo trains both provide free wi-fi and access to amenities, so passengers who don’t require additional frills for their journey may opt for these seat classes to save some money. When booking their tickets, travelers are also encouraged to review their eligibility for any discounts offered to certain groups; for instance Trenitalia allows minors aged 15 and younger to travel for free in family groups of two-to-five people.
