Easiest & Most economical way - Naples to Positano w/ luggage

by bjudge

My husband and I going to Positano in 8 days and it's our first time in Italy. We can't decide if we should try to take the ferry from Naples to Positano or take the Circumvesuviana to Sorrento and then the SITA bus Positano.

Any recommendations? If we want to take the ferry, do you know if it's possible to make sure the ferry is running before we leave the Naples train station? Are reservations required for the ferry? What the easiest way to get to the ferry from the train station (with luggage)?

Any info or suggestions is much appreciated!

Thank you.

I would opt for the ferry every time, having done it last year. I have also done the train and bus thing but much prefer the ferry especially when the weather is good. The ferry goes from the port at around lunchtime and takes a couple of hours (from memory!) to get to Positano, but the trip is spectacular.
One thing however, you will have to climb steps from the ferry terminalto your hotel, so if you have too much luggage or if you suffer from baxk problems, then maybe the bus from Sorrento would be better. What you have to weigh up is 1. the bus is notoriously unreliable time table wise and 2. In rough weather the ferry will not dock in Positano as the wharf is very small. If you get off the train in Naples and it is a fine sunny day, then you can be pretty sure that the ferry will be running. Take a cab from the rank in front of the station. Do not accept a lift with a cab driver who approaches you in the station, you will probably get ripped off if you do. The cabfare should be about 10-12 euros to the port. The ferry terminals are wll signed, but if you're not sure just ask someone. I think the ferry company is called Metro del Mare or something like that.

I think the train/bus option is cheaper but the ferry is probably easier for you. You could always do one option going and the other on your return. The bus trip from Sorrento is one of the great bargains (see my Sorrento pages) and despite postings to the contrary, we found it ran on time. You can look up the ferry timetable from their site - sorry, I can't remember it off hand but it is the line that the previous poster mentioned. Or just google "ferries Naples Positano".I am not sure if it runs all year in any case, but the site will indicate this. Otherwise, if the day is fine and it is supposed to run, it will, etc.!

www.metrodelmare.com will give you all info. First of all, click on the Union Jack! It's all pretty self-explanatory after that.

Travel Tips for Naples

Go to Sorrento! This is about...

by Razorart

Go to Sorrento! This is about 90 minutes on the Circumvesuviana and is very easy to get to.

What a beautiful town. There are breath-taking views of the azure sea, lovely churches, flowers everywhere, piazzas, interesting buildings, and very inexpensive shopping.
This is the perfect little seaside town and definitely one of the most romantic places I've ever been, as it appeared that there were couples everywhere!

Campi Flegrei

by Polly74

The Phlegraean Volcanic District is probably one of the most complex volcanic structures in the world, due to caldera collapse and repeated volcanic activity within a limited area.

Within this area there are sites of special interest; these include the Solfatara fumarolic field, Monte Nuovo caldera, Astroni caldera and the evident bradyseism.

The Solfatara crater has been a site of intense hydrothermal activity since Grecian times and is the most impressive manifestation of the current hydrothermal activity of the Campi Flegrei caldera. The manifestation includes both focused vents with a maximum temperature of approximately 160°C, and large areas of hot steaming ground.

The most obvious manifestations of bradyseism occur along the coastline where the Roman coastline can be noted to lie approximately 10m below the current sea level. One of the areas where this phenomenon is most easily seen and recorded is in the town of Pozzuoli where within the main square there is the temple of Serapeo which was constructed between the I and II century AC The site had to be restored at the beginning of the III century AC as sea water had invaded its floor.

The calderas of Monte Nuovo and Astroni are well preserved manifestations of the last period of eruptive activity.

by Jeannkelly about Trattoria Medina

Molto Bene!!!

A great experience for Napolitan dining with the real Napolitan pizza baked fresh from the Napolitan oven not to mention the many, many things that I gnawed to death...

National Archaeological Museum

by guell

The National Archaeological Museum has an extraordinary collection of frescoes and mosaics from Pompeii and Herculaneum. It is said that this museum has the best collection, and I don't doubt it. While there, we sign up to see the "Secret Room" which has an erotic collection of statues, frescos, mosaics and jewelry. See my "Secret Room" Travelogue for a sneak peak. Amazing!

The Banks on Via Toledo

by sargentjeff

When in downtown Naples, don't pass up a chance to get inside one or two of the banks. They are some of the most beautiful buildings in Naples. The guards won't let you take photographs for security reasons, and I recommend you don't try to sneak one, as they won't just kick you out, they may take your camera or arrest you.
