National Railway Museum - Pietrarsa

Italy's very first railway line ran along the coast, past Vesuvius - from the royal villa
in Portici to the capital of the Kingdom of the two Sicilies.

Today the Pietrarsa railway museum is housed where Ferdinand II built his trains, on the
seafront only a mile or two from the centre of Naples - and within easy reach of Sorrento.
