Train: From Munich by night train
Probably the most ecological way to get to the Amalfi Coast is Arrival by train, This takes a lot longer than traveling by plane, but 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 the ÖBB (tickets at www.nightjet.com) and arrives in Rome at 09:22 according to the current timetable. From here there are numerous connections to Salerno. The travel time from Roma Termini to Salerno is between 1:30 and 4:00 depending on the train category. Trains in the category offer the fastest connection Frecciarossa (red arrow) and Frecciabianca (white arrow) with prices between 40 € and 60 €, whereas the slowest connection with regional trains is already available from approx. 16 € (single journey without discount, booking under www.trenitalia.com).
