How to reach Hotel La Lucertola [Vietri sul Mare (Salerno)]

 

You will probably arrive by airplane either at Rome, Fiumicino Airport (FCO) [aka "Leonardo Da Vinci" Airport], or at Naples, Capodichino Airport. In both cases, you will find hereafter the instructions [A or B, respectively] to reach by train the Salerno Railway Station (Salerno), unless you arrive in Capodichino in time to take the direct bus Capodichino-Salerno, [see B* below].

 

Once in Salerno you may reach Hotel La Lucertola by bus. The Hotel is actually located in Marina di Vietri, near the sea, whilst Vietri sul Mare is on the side of the mountain. Therefore, you need to follow two steps:

- first, take bus n. 4 or bus n. 9 from Salerno Railway Station to the second stop in Vietri (close to "Piazza Matteotti" (Matteotti Square)). You should buy the ticket ("UNICO Salerno", also called "urbano", € 1.10) at the railway station's newsagent or at the CSTP office, and stamp it on the bus.

- then, take the bus n. 68 to Marina di Vietri from "Piazza Matteotti" in Vietri. Get down just in front of the Hotel La Lucertola (actually just before entering Marina di Vietri). As the ticket  "UNICO Salerno" is valid for 90 minutes, you don't need another ticket. 

Another possibility is to take a taxi at the cost of around € 12 from Salerno Railway Station Square directly to the Hotel.

 

 

A. From Rome Airport (Leonardo da Vinci) to Salerno

You have the following two steps.

 

A1. From Rome Airport (Leonardo da Vinci) to Roma Railway Station (Roma Termini)

You may reach Roma Railway Station (Roma Termini) from the Rome Airport by train; a taxi is not recommended because of the distance. Once at the Arrival, follow the signs to the Railway Station inside the Airport and take the train to Roma Termini: the ticket must be bought at the FS office: the ticket is € 11 or € 5.50 (fast  or slower connection, respesctively) and must be stamped at the yellow machines before getting on the train. At the same office you can also buy the ticket from Roma Termini to Salerno. For the timetable, click here.

 

Remember to stamp the ticket at the yellow machines before getting on the train.

 

A2. From Roma Railway Station (Roma Termini) to Salerno Railway Station (Salerno)

There is an on-line official timetable of the Italian Railways (FS) and you can use the name of the railway stations we quoted above in rounded parentheses (Fiumicino Aeroporto, Roma Termini, Salerno) as departure or arrival railway stations.

 

Remember to stamp the ticket at the yellow machines before getting on the train.

 

 

B. From Naples Airport (Capodichino) to Salerno Railway Station (Salerno)

You have the following two steps, unless you can profit from the bus Capodichino-Salerno [see B* below].

 

B1. From Naples Airport (Capodichino) to Napoli Railway Station (Napoli Centrale)

At Naples Airport you may take the bus 3S (orange bus) just in front of the Airport entrance (every 15 minutes): the tickets (€ 1.10) are sold inside the Airport at the newsagents and should be stamped on the bus. You have to get down at "Piazza Garibaldi" (Garibaldi Square) and walk a little bit through the square towards the Napoli Railway Station (Napoli Centrale). There's also a direct bus departing from the parking lot just on the right of the Airport Arrival gate ("Alibus" - ticket on board € 3). Another possibility is to take a taxi (around € 20).

 

B2. From Napoli Railway Station (Napoli Centrale) to Salerno Railway Station (Salerno)

Once in Napoli Railway Station (Napoli Centrale) get a train to Salerno Railway Station (Salerno) [Ticket "Unico", Fascia 5 Orario (€ 3.30), but faster trains IC (€ 6.50) and ES (€ 13.30) are more expensive].

There is an on-line official timetable of the Italian Railways (FS) and you can use the name of the railway stations we quoted above in rounded parentheses (Napoli Centrale, Salerno) as departure or arrival railway stations. For the sake of completeness, you should consider also the departures from "Napoli Piazza Garibaldi", which is another railway station, exactly under Napoli Centrale (there is a direct stairway). 

 

Remember to stamp the ticket at the yellow machines before getting on the train.

 

B*. From Naples Airport (Capodichino) to Salerno

At Naples Airport (Capodichino) you may take the SITA bus running directly to Salerno (€ 7, to be bought on the bus). One baggage is free, but for each further piece the fee is € 5. This bus runs only 2 times a day (Monday to Saturday), therefore you must check carefully the timetable. Departures from Naples Airport: 9.30 a.m and 3.30 p.m.. The bus  leaves from bus terminal in front of Arrivals. Get down the bus at Salerno Railway Station.
