Updated March 6, 2002
Arrival date: May 26. Departure date: June 2.


Ravello is a small town located 6 km from the larger (and perhaps better known town) of Amalfi, 60 km (by road) South of Napoli and 30 km West of Salerno.

We intend to hire two or three charter buses for May 26 and June 2 (arrival and departure days). These buses will transport participants from Napoli (central train station, airport) to Ravello, and back. Some preliminary details are given below (item 1), more will be given later. You will also find details on how to reach Ravello by public transportation (please note: it takes at least two hours to go from Napoli to Ravello by public transportation). Again, the information given here is preliminary, and will be updated later. A taxi from Naples to Ravello will cost approximately 86 Euros.

Napoli (or Salerno) can be reached by air and by train. The Web site of public transportation in Campania (Naples county), at, has a search engine that takes as an input the place you wish to reach. Note that to reach Ravello you have got to go to Amalfi before and then change. Schedules of buses can be found on the Web page of ``Autolinee SITA'', at

Some translation: vai alla pagina = go to the page; Feriale = Monday-Saturday; Scolastico = not on bank holydays; Giornaliero = every day


1 - From Napoli-Capodichino-airport to Ravello with OUR shuttle coach

We are organizing a shuttle coach Napoli-Ravello. There will be two/three departures on Sunday May 26 from the Napoli railway station to Napoli Capodichino airport and then to Ravello. The departures will be in the afternoon and in the evening, at times to be announced later.
Please write as soon as possible to Eva Ferrara Dentice ( and give her the following information:

  • at what time you expect to arrive in Naples on the 26th, and where (which airport or train station, ...).
  • at what time does your plane, train, boat ... leave on Sunday the 2nd.

    Return coaches will be scheduled for the morning June 2. Information will be available at the meeting. Please note that the lectures on June 1 will end in late afternoon, so that catching a plane that day will be difficult without missing any lectures.

    2 - How to go to Napoli/Salerno from Roma (airport) by train

    People arriving in Roma should first go to Napoli (or Salerno). The simplest way is by train. The main railway stations in Roma are: Roma Termini (the main station), Roma Tiburtina, Roma Ostiense and Roma Tuscolana. There are trains from Roma Fiumicino airport to Roma Ostiense, Roma Tuscolana, Roma Termini. Roma Ostiense is connected by a subterranean walkway to the underground [=Metropolitana] station Piramide. Underground trains also stop at the lower floor of station Roma Termini. Anyway, we recommend you to ask the local information offices once there.
    To get from Roma to Napoli we suggest you to use ES*-trains or IC-trains, avoid local trains, which are really slow (but cheap).
    Useful links: (and then "Orario") or [Finally, we heard there are trains run by airline companies from Roma Fiumicino airport to Napoli Mergellina railway station. Ask your airline company about this.]

    You can arrive at Napoli Centrale (often written Napoli C.le, the main railway station in Napoli) or at Napoli Campi Flegrei (= Napoli CF), Napoli Mergellina, or Napoli Piazza Garibaldi (= Napoli PG). These four stations are connected by underground trains [= Metropolitana]. Keep in mind that Napoli Piazza Garibaldi is simply the lower floor of Napoli Centrale.
