Travelling from Florence to Naples with Frecciarossa

I took a Frecciarossa 9527 train for my journey from Florence to Naples. The train departed from Firenze Santa Maria Novella station at 12:30 and arrived in Napoli Centrale at 15:30, calling at Roma Tiburtina, Roma Termini and Napoli Afragola.

Departing from Florence

After spending a lovely weekend in Florence, it was time for me to get back to Firenze Santa Maria Novella station. It took me about 5 minutes to walk there from my hotel. I headed  to platform 12 to catch my train.

Boarding the train

Boarding the train was super quick and easy. On the platform, there were clear signs showing where each Frecciarossa class was located, so finding my seat in Frecciarossa Business was a piece of cake!

My seat was super comfy – it was a wide leather reclining armchair with a big table, plenty of legroom and a power socket. Every row was separated by a glass divider for greater privacy and free WiFi was also available. Luckily, I managed to book a window seat facing forwards, which was perfect for enjoying the views, from Tuscany’s beautiful hills to the majestic Mount Vesuvius.

A few minutes after our train departed, we were offered complimentary snacks and drinks – we could choose between a savoury and sweet snack, including gluten-free options, and a hot and cold drink, what’s not to like?

Arriving in Naples

Once I got off at Napoli Centrale station, I headed towards Metropark Napoli Centrale bus station to catch the bus bound for Avellino and get back home.

Overall, the journey was very relaxing – I got from one city centre to another without having to worry about traffic or parking. Travelling with Frecciarossa from Florence to Naples is definitely a must!
