Either if you are staying in the down town or a little bit out, don’t worry because public transportations can take you everywhere.
If you are landing at Naples airport and you don’t want to spend your money with private transfer or taxis , it is still very easy to get to Sorrento. There is, in fact, the Curreri bus that leaves from outside the arrival gate in Naples and takes you at the main train station of Sorrento. It runs only in specific times.
It takes about 1 hour and half and the cost is about 10 euro. See the timetables
Once you are in Sorrento you are able to move around so easily.
For example if you are planning a day trip on the Amalfi coast and you want to save money the best way to reach it is by bus , the Sita bus leaves from Sorrento train station to the Amalfi coast every half an hour and it takes about 40 minutes to get to Positano (first stop), once in Positano you can admire the beautiful characteristic town and maybe lay down a little bit to relax on the beach. Than always by catching the Sita bus you can reach Amalfi and Ravello ( the other two must see sites of the Amalfi coast).
The day ticket cost about 8 euro. See the timetables
To Capri and Ischia islands there is the Ferry, no need to book the tickets in advance.
In the summertime there are many organized tour and excursion to Capri Island with private boats that compared to the Ferry and hydrofoils prices are worth it every cents, because with no stress they pick you up from your hotel and they take you to a full day escorted tour on a nice Gozzo Sorrentine boats like the ones of Capitanoago, he really knows how to make of your day to Capri a glorious day!.
A day trip to Pompeii ruins and Mt. Vesuvio is super easy! you just need to catch the circumvesuviana train ( either from Sorrento, St.Agnello, Piano di Sorrento) and in 30 minutes train ride you will be just outside the ruins. The visit inside takes at least 2 hours but they can take also the whole day to visit them. They offer headphones , group guides ( only at a fixed time) and private guides.
The entrance fee is about 11 euro.
To reach Mt. Vesuvio simply catch the bus just from outside Pompeii ruins.
