Rail connections from Germany to Southern Italy are excellent. For example the fastest way from Munich (Southern Germany) to Pisciotta-Palinuro only takes about 18 hours. There is a motorail train to Naples. Apart from that you can also take night trains (NightJet by ÖBB), regional and Intercity trains. The fastest connection by Euro-Night (daily scheduled) takes the route from Munich via Austria to Rome, from where Italian trains continue on to Pisciotta-Palinuro.
