Surely, the best way to get to Sorrento is to land in Naples at the Capodichino airport, which is less than 50km far from Sorrento. Indeed, the airport of Naples, Capodichino, is the closest airport to Sorrento, Pompei, Capri and the Amalfi coast.
At the entrance of the airport, you can find the busses of the company Curreri Viaggi.
The Curreri coaches connect the airport of Naples with Sorrento and viceversa. The ticket costs 10 euros, while the trip, usually, lasts
less than one hour and a half. However, in summer, the busses' scheduling may not be respected due to the traffic jams caused
by the large number of tourrists' cars. The stop in Sorrento corresponds to the Sorrento's station and is the last one.
It is possible to book the tickets in advance from the company's website.
An alternative to the Curreri busses is provided by the
Alibus, a Naples city-bus, which connects the airport with the train station and the dock of Naples.
The ticket of the Alibus costs 4 euros and it can be purchased on board. Depending whether you would stop at the central train station,
Garibaldi's square, or at the dock, "Molo Beverello", the trip's duration ranges between 15 and 30 minutes.
