Rail: From Munich by night train
Probably the most ecological way to travel to the Amalfi Coast is to Arrival by train. Although this takes considerably longer than travelling by plane, this disadvantage is not so significant if you have the option of using a night train connection. As of October 2018, there is only one possible night train connection from Germany: The Night train between Munich and Rome is operated by ÖBB (tickets available at www.nightjet.com) and arrives in Rome at 09:22 in the morning according to the current timetable. From here, there are numerous connections to Salerno. The journey time from Roma Termini to Salerno is between 1:30h and 4:00h, depending on the train category. The fastest connection is offered by trains of the category Frecciarossa (red arrow) and Frecciabianca (white arrow) with prices between 40€ and 60€, whereas the slowest connection with regional trains is already available from about 16€ (in each case one way without discount, booking under www.trenitalia.com).
