From 18.04.12 Ed to Naples direct.
Looks as if there will be a Wed and Sun flight

Wed leave Ed 06.00 leave Naples 10.55
Sun leave Ed 07.45 leave Naples 12.40

Looking forward to reading suggestions on getting from Naples to Calabria as this flight would be great, save travelling to London for us up North.

Saw this announced the other day, but at the time the flight times weren't up. Going out seems really good (especially since we are only 15mins from Edinburgh), but it's a bit of a pain getting back to Naples for 10.55. Still, it's not perfect, but it's a step in the right direction towards direct flights to Calabria, and hopefully better than having to fly to Stansted first!

How are you and your family?
We were in touch ages ago. Hope things have worked out for you.

Yes, anything beats having to go to Stansted. We go back over in October and trying the Lamezia / Paris / Edinburgh route this time.

The fares to Naples are really cheap but just wondering how to get from there without driving.

Having been driven through Naples several years ago going to the Amalfi Coast I could not suffer the white knuckle ride again.

Can anyone else can suggest a way of getting from Naples to Calabria... safely!!

I am a big feartie when on the roads, the tail gaiting, speeding and the dangerous overtaking has me trembling.

I am taking my bike out when we move but will only cycle on wee country roads.

Poor other half is a nervous wreck with me praying, cursing, breaking, hiding and ........ myself in the passenger seat.

Thank you Ursla and TonyMac

i have booked flights to Naples and return from Edinburgh for July/August and would you believe it ... the prices have gone up!!

Anyway we now know about bus to train station and good journey to Calabria.Thanks to you both.

No doubt I will be back on here in a few months asking advice about Trenitalia.
I have tried to book with them on line before and even though I have a password I fail .
Decided one year to get tickets at Rome station... fully booked ended up in a hotel and expensive flights down the next day. Feel like an eejit when it comes to booking trains on the web. Still I have 9 months to practice .

Meanwhile going over in October via Stansted returning via Paris.

My husband and I are looking to travel from the UK to Madrid and then from Madrid to Croatia and back to the UK. Does anyone know when these flights from Madrid to Zagreb will be introduced?
