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 (http://www.romametropolitane.it). 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 FA-trains or FR-trains or IC-trains, avoid local trains, which are really slow (but cheap).

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).
