My son & his girl have Eurail 2nd class Youth passes and wish to take this train to Bari Central on the 1st of June. Is there a bus/taxi - (time,cost & availability?) from the station which will take them to the ferry port in time to get their tickets for the overnight ferry to Patras Greece.
Unfortunately they can't book tickets for the ferry online - as Superfast/Blue Ferries don't book customers for deck seats travelling using Eurail passes at a reduced rate.
Yes, they can take a bus from Naples Centre to Bari Central arriving at about 4pm however as they are travelling from Sorrento they had hoped to spend the morning at Herculaneum - so a whole day was not wasted on traveling.
They are concerned that if they arrive at the ferry port about 7pm (I am guessing) that the ferry tickets will all be sold.
Can they book the ferry a few days earlier by phone while in Sorrento? They can give Superfast/Blue ferries in Bari cc details to secure their seat. Anyone have a phone number?
I have read every blog and post on this subject without much luck. Can any TA member give us some good info.
Thanks for any feedback - much appreciated.
