Arriving in Naples by Train

You'll most likely arrive in Naples by train from elsewhere in Italy. It's just 2.5 hours from Rome, and 8 hours from Milan. You'll be arriving at the Central Station in Piazza Garibaldi, from where you can take a taxi or a bus to your hotel. Alternatively, prebook a transfer from/to the station to/from your hotel:

Naples Airport

If you're arriving by plane, you'll land in Capodichino Airport, where domestic flights connect Naples to Rome and other cities. From there, a 15-minute bus ride takes you to Piazza Garibaldi by the central train station, from where you can easily reach your hotel by public transportation.
A better option is to prebook a transfer from/to the airport:

If you're going straight to the Amalfi Coast, here are all your transfer options:

Getting Around Naples and Getting to the Amalfi Coast

Getting around the city is easy, although you'll have your nerves tested at rush hour. Avoid taking the bus at that time unless you don't mind being pushed and shoved around. Instead, use trams number 1 or 4 whenever you can, or take the metro.

Car Rental in Naples

Driving around Naples is a true nightmare. Don't do it. However, do rent a car to drive through the breathtaking Amalfi Coast (you can pick up and drop off your car in Naples). You can also use the easy train service to reach many of the cliffside towns, but you'd be missing the views along the zigzagging way. Once in Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, or any other town, use your feet to get around -- these are all tiny towns.
To visit Pompeii, take the train from Naples. The archaeological site is located right outside the train station. A frequent train service will then take you back to Naples.
To get to Capri, take a short ferry ride from Naples or Sorrento. Capri is small enough to be explored on foot, although you'll need a bus to reach the center of town at the top of the hill from the ferry terminal.
