Napoli (Naples) Artecard trains

This may have been discussed before, but I can't find a thread on this. I would like to know specifically what trains, busses, or boats the Artecard (for Naples area) covers. I am hoping that it will cover the train from Naples to Paestum or from Sorrento to Paestum. Does it cover any of the boats, ferries, hydrofoils, etc. to Capri? I have figured out that it covers the Circumvesuviana, but it was not easy to do. The web sites that cover this are confusing to me. Thanks in advance.

Check out the website for the Campania Aretcard... http://www.campaniartecard.it/EN/Home.cfm. Each card has different benefits. It does show that the 3 or 7 day region card gives you unlimited access to the entire network of transportation, including the Circumvesuviana. It also includes a round trip boat ride on the MM1 line, but that line does not include Capri as a stop. Most of the links offer an English version. We used the card last fall and it did save us a lot of money at the sites and museums. They didn't have the regional transportation option when we went. It's 12 Euro more for the 3 day regional version - just check to see if you will use the Circumvesuviana enough to make it worthwhile.

I read the part in your post wrong about the Circumvesuviana.... You can use the link for the Consorzio Unicocampania to see your transportation options (scroll to the bottom for English version). Most all of the towns are listed, but Paestum is not. You might want to call or e-mail to verify. The number and e-mail address are in the contact us section. Most of the tourist services have at least one fluent English speaker, so they should be able to give you all the information you need.
