Choosing among route on site for Campania Express

I'm on Campania Express site to buy round trip tickets from Naples to Sorrento in May. Under "Tratta" I have to choose the name of route. I chose Napoli Porta Nolana/Garibaldi-Sorrento, but said "no races" that day. Am I choosing the correct one to get to Sorrento? Google translate app has been a big help. Thanks!

I think it's too early for the 2020 tickets to be available. On the website I found that the Campania Express ran from mid-March through late December in 2019, so am guessing that it will have a similar schedule this year.

The Campania Express can't sell out, it's like an overground express metro line or a city bus making less stops than the usual services . Get tickets online in late April or on the day of travel. Would you try to buy a NYC Metrocard 4 months in advance?

You can see photos of the train by googling "Campania Express". There are no reserved seats. Like getting on the subway, the first folks on get the seats, the rest stand. The reason you have to choose stations is that journeys shorter than Naples-Sorrento cost less.

I’ve been on the Circumvesuviana but not on the Campania Express. It sounds like what people are saying is that it’s a premium product, but, only, in comparison to the jammed and sweltering Circumvesuviana on the same tracks. (Ironica typeface ...) The OP was right to try for tickets in advance. Welcome to southern Italy.
