It is easy to travel by train from Paris to Naples. There is an overnight option, using the Thello night train from Paris to northern Italy and continuing the following morning on a daytime train to Naples. Yet many travellers prefer doing the journey entirely by day, using the following route.
Changing trains at Turin Porta Susa gives the best timings in both directions.
The journey starts by boarding a high-speed TGV from Paris to Turin. That train sweeps through Burgundy and the Alps, reaching Turin less than 5 hours after leaving Paris. In Turin, you join a high-speed train to Naples. This journey from Turin to Naples is on either an Italo or a Frecciarossa service. Both trains offer very high levels of comfort.
Paris to Turin
Fast TGV trains speed south from the French capital, cutting through Burgundy to reach Lyon, their first stop. After that, the pace slows as the terrain becomes more mountainous. All trains on this route stop at Chambéry and Modane before entering Italy, where the train makes two stops at Bardoneccia and Oulx.
Upon arrival in Turin, the high-speed trains from Paris stop at Porta Susa station, an easy 10-minute walk west of the city centre. Porto Susa affords an excellent range of onward connections - including high-speed services to Florence and Rome, as well as direct trains to Verona and Venice. The TGV from Paris continues beyond Turin Porta Susa to Milan, dawdling rather than dashing on the final leg of its long journey from Paris.
Torino Porta Susa to Naples Centrale
This 940-kilometre journey is almost entirely on state-of-the-art high-speed railway lines. Trenitalia’s Frecciarossa services leave three to five times each day from Turin Porta Susa station, taking 5 hrs 30 mins for the journey to Naples Centrale. NTV Italo offer three departures a day on the same route. Note that tickets are not usually interchangeable between the two companies. Milan, Bologna, Florence and Rome are the main cities on this journey from Piedmont to Campania.
