The archaeological train has left for the sites of Campania

2 min read


The holiday begins on the tracks. Because, once you get on the train, you are already in another dimension that takes you back in time and leads you straight to visiting archaeological sites or other tourist destinations. On board a historic train even the journey becomes an experience. Like the one that can be experienced throughout December in Campania on the historic Fs trains.

After the Reggia express, a historic train from central Naples to the Royal Palace of Caserta on 25 November and the Archeotreno express (on 3 December), a historic train from Central Naples to Pietrarsa and Paestum, we continue with other stops for almost the entire month. The cost of the ticket is 5 euros for adults and 2.50 for children. The program includes the connection of the Pietrarsa express, an electric locomotive with 1930s “centoporte” carriages and 1950s “corbellini e luggage” carriages which on the 8th, 9th, 10th, 16th, 17th and 23rd will guarantee trips from Napoli Centrale to Pietrarsa Museum.

For next year we are working on a new edition of Archeotreno Express for which the experts hypothesize of “proposing the service to schools, with midweek circulations to Paestum”. The site is famous above all for the Doric temples which testify to its Greek origins: the city was born at the end of the 7th century BC as Poseidonia, one of the main commercial centers of Magna Graecia. “Travellers – they assure from Fs – will be able to admire the imposing remains of the temples, but also of the amphitheatre, the town and the walls that surrounded it”.

Then there are also regional trains in the panorama which are no longer seen as means of transport for commuters but as real vehicles to encourage tourism.

One more piece in the mosaic which is made up of other significant pieces. Already this summer the Ferrovie dello Stato group presented the “FS Italian tourist trains”, the new company which aims to offer “railway services expressly designed and calibrated for quality tourism, sustainable and attentive to rediscovering the riches of the Italian territory” .
