We are landing in Naples at 11:30am and would like to book a train to Rome at 12:57pm, will that be enough time to get to central station?

yes, but I do suggest you to hire a cab (taxi). central station is not very far... but it's better to consider roush hour, strange things ahappening on the way, alien invasions.. etc

Hi Sara, I wouldn’t advice you to book this close for various reasons:
1) if the plane doesn’t waste time after landing to open its doors for passengers to get off (once we waited almost 10 minutes in a Ryanair after landing).
2) if you are not from EU and so you have to pass border control .
3) if you have luggages to take from the conveyor belts.
4) if you finally make it out but arrive to the bus stop and there is queue;
5) you find traffic on the road (unfortunately Naples roads are very busy).

Looking at the bus time from airport to train station, these are the time of departure: 11.45, 11.55, 12.05, 12.15, 12.25, 12.35, 12.50. The journey lasts around 15 minutes when there is no traffic, with traffic it could be double that time, if you are unlucky. So my safest advice as someone who uses the bus often is to shift the train booking time to sometime after 1pm. Better safe and sorry and also you don’t loose money. :)

It would depend on how you are getting to Central station and you are also gambling that your flight will be on time and that you disembark quickly. If you have checked luggage this will also increase time

The same thing I said is valid even taking a taxi because it is the same route and around the same journey time.
