Train tickets for Napoli Centrale to Pompeii/Herculaneum

Hello,

I am a little confused about the way the train tickets for the Circumvesuviana work.

I have read that to visit Pompeii, you buy a return ticket, which seems quite simple. However, let’s say that you also wanted to visit Herculaneum on the same day, after you have visited Pompeii - would you need to buy a new train ticket at Herculaneum to get back to Napoli Centrale?

You don't have to purchase your return tickets in the morning. The Pompei Scavi Circumvesuviana station has a manned ticket office while the Ercolano Scavi station (for Herculeneum) has ticket machines.

Each segment of this trip would require its own ticket.

Naples to Pompei: NA3 Aziendale, 2,80 euro

Pompei to Ercolano Scavi: AC2 Aziendale, 2,00 euro

Ercolano Scavi to Naples: NA2 Aziendale, 2,20 euro

If you'll use a second (or second and third) method of public transit when you return to Naples at the end of the day (for example, you'll take the metro from Napoli Centrale or a bus to your next location) you need a different ticket. In this case you'd want the NA2 Integrato, which costs 2,70 euro. This is a timed ticket that allows you 120 minutes from validation to complete your trip. Given that the train from Ercolano to Naples takes only about 20 minutes, this allows you plenty of time to make your connection.
