Positano from Naples airport: train or taxi?

by USAStefano

I'm interested in the pros and cons (including cost) of taking a taxi or private car service to Positano from Naples airport. Is it possible to take a train from the airport to either Sorrento or Salerno and then catch a bus? If so, is that more advisable vs. the taxi? We'll be landing at Naples around 3:00 p.m. (15:00) on a Tuesday.

Replies would be much appreciated. Grazie.

What time of year?

If it's in the summer months, your best best is taking Circumvesuviana train from Naples to Sorrento, and then ferry from there to Positano. You'll get a nice look at the coast along the way!

if you are going by public transit, the most reliable way is the circumvesuviano train to sorrento and then the SITA bus to positano. the ferry may be more scenic but the bus is more convenient and easier. a taxi or private car service will be very expensive as much as 100 Eu.

may i suggest renting a car, especially as you are interested in then driving north. you will never see the scenery better than from a private vehicle, and you will have the freedom to drive where and WHEN you want and not wait for the notoriously unreliable and infrequent bus service. just hop in the car and drive to places like ravello ( breathtaking ), furore, etc. but do make sure your hotel has parking for the car. the difficulties of driving the amalfi peninsula i feel are grossly exaggerated. one does not need a Ph.D in driving to go up a hill and handle a curve at the same time.

enjoy your trip.

Between train or taxi I should choose taxi but it is my opinion.
Take a look on this web page, it could give you some interesting options:

goodfish, I appreciate the advice. But what about luggage? If we take the ferry to Positano, we'll then have to drag our luggage from the port up a whole lot of steps to get to our hotel (which is a small B&B).

Porter Service:

Porters are also how you get luggage to your hotel in Capri as the town is (like Positano) almost completely pedestrian. First off, I would contact your B&B to see if these services are part of their amenities. If not, I would ask them for detailed instructions on finding the porters and cost. As most guests staying in the hills of Positano will have the same issue, the luggage question should be a common one for your B&B hosts.

Travel Tips for Positano

Driving Challenge

by paulapes

I'd drive others along the coast road and then down into Positano on the one-way, extremely narrow road. I love a challenge! Walking down to the beach and restaurants, and driving on those crazy roads..

Daytrip to Pompeiji

by ubiq

From Positano it is quite easy to take daytrip to Pompeiji. The bus will take about one hour from Positano to Sorrento, where train takes about half hour to Positano. Train goes hourly; just timing your bus back to Positano.

The only existing fjord in Italy. The zone which begins at the bay of Conca dei Marini and continues to the feet of the faraglioni of Capo Sottile, is the most spectacular sight on the Amalfi Coast. Suddenly a road sign directs you to a village which, well, which isn't there... Welcome to Furore. To see it you've got to and look down from the street to where, at the bottom of a fjord cut into the cliffs, a small fishing village crouches among the rocks. Our driver took us by Furore on the way home from Ravello. You can best appreciate its charms from the sea, where the enchanting effect of the tiny coves and terraces carved into the rock hits full force.

Wonderful food and view (for less $)

by ct-bound about Santa Caterina

With no official advertising, only a handwritten whiteboard, only in Italian, we knew we had to try it. Notably, the prices here were even a couple Euros less per dish than everywhere else in Positano.

The Restaurant is on a huge patio, overlooking the town and the ocean and the view at night is breathtaking. You can even hear the waves breaking on the beach below while you enjoy your dinner. My favourite was the pasta Puttanesca. With whole olives and the freshest of ingredients ('Grandpa' who runs the place and does the cooking picked the herbs fresh off the plants while he was making it), it was the best meal I had while in Italy.

I also highly recommend the house wine, which I suspect the proprietor makes himself in the basement, since our bottle said 'Blanco', yet it was a red wine. However, it was great!

Almost forced choice if you are here

by gmg61 about Santa Croce - Ristorante Pizzeria

Nocelle is a tiny village 400 metres above the sea and Positano. From every point of it you can enjoy a wonderful view over the coastline, the sea and the islands.
Nocelle is also one end onf the "Sentiero degli Dei" trail. And you you arrive here and get hungry you have only two choices, this restaurant and another pizzeria.
If you choose Santa Croce you'll find a very attentive service, a great view over the Amalfi coast and correct food, not bad neither excellent.
Fish and meat are both available, along with pasta and desserts.
