Sit on the right side of the train for the best views. The train skirts Vesuvius on the route out of Naples. Heading south, the railway plays cat and mouse with the wild Cilento coast, here and there diving down to the sea before retreating inland. Once into Calabria, the line more consistently hugs the coast. At Villa San Giovanni, the entire train rolls onto a ship for the short crossing to Sicily. Dry land is reached at Messina, from where it is just 40 minutes down the coast to Taormina.
