Pietrarsa Historic Train. Traveling by train like in the 30's and 50's

Pietrarsa Historic Train

Pietrarsa is, of its kind, one of the most interesting railway museums in the world!

The Pietrarsa Express is, by right, one of the most fascinating and evocative experiences. This is the first historic railway line, inaugurated in 1839 by King Ferdinand of Bourbon.

You can board a fantastic historic train from the 1930s, with electric locomotive, “Centoporte” and “Corbellini” carriages from 1930 and 1950 and wooden seats. A journey that, of course, will thrill both adults and children.

Pietrarsa Historic Train is a leap into the past, along the first, and historic, railway line from Naples to Portici. Starting from October 29th it will be possible to book the trip starting from the following Sundays, according to timetables and calendar available through the website of the Italian railways.
