Driving Distance: Positano to Cinque Terra

by USAStefano

We are thinking of driving from Positano to the Cinque Terra region. I would be interested in people's thoughts. How long a drive is that? Is it easy to rent a car in Positano or would I be better advised to get to Sorrento or Naples to do that?

Thank you in advance for your comments.

if you are flying into naples, get the car at the airport. if you are flying into rome, pick up the car in rome and drive all the way down ( three lane expressway all the way to naples, very fast and easy ).

as for driving to the cinque terra, i have driven all the segments of this trip several times but never in one fell swoop. michelin's website will give you an accurate time to the minute but off the top must be 9 hours or a little more ( plus stops ) ( may i recommend orvieto ).

it is pretty far - how long of a stay do you have - i have been to the cinque terra the last two trips prior, and this time went to positano - they are somewhat similar - yes different i understand, but there is sorrento, positano, amalfi, capri - i think all of which deserve time - there is the ruins of pompeii - so to go from south to the north - and to see similar dramatic coastlines - well i am more apt to say that if the stay is not real long - to choose one this time, another the next.

Re: Driving Distance: Positano to Cinque Terra

by Beausoleil (above) lists the time from Positano to Riomaggiore as about 7 hours. You don't say which of the 5 towns you plan to drive to, but it is easy enough to park your car at Riomaggiore and hike to train to the other villages. It is a national park so you must pay admittance to hike the trails. We bought a combination train-park ticket and walked one way and took the train back to parking. BTW, rain and mudslides closed parts of the trail one day so we trained around that.

If I were you and didn't have a car, I'd simply take the train and avoid paying for parking in the Cinque Terre.

From Positano to "Five Lands" renting a car...
I'd rent it in Naples Airport, I think it's the simplest way.

Anyway I suggest to go to "Cinque Terre" area by train. It is more comfortable.
Take a look on
and test a possible travel from Naples to Riomaggiore

One last thing. It's not so simple to park the car on "Five Lands" area: trains, boats and feet are by far the best transportations over there.

Feel you welcome in Italy!

Travel Tips for Positano

The Coast vs. Sorrento

by TRimer

If you are planning a trip to the Amalfi Coast and trying to decide where to stay- here are some hints/guidelines. Sorrento is a little city with lots of value accommodations. However, it lacks the charm and the beauty of the little towns on the coast. If you are going on your honeymoon or looking for a once in a lifetime experience, splurge and stay in Positano, Amalfi, Praiano or even Ravello. You can find values on the coast and you will be making memories to last a lifetime.

I am impressed by the way you...

by paulapes

I am impressed by the way you are treated in eating establishments in Italy. No matter how busy the place is, they will not bring you your check/bill until you ask for it. At one restaurant (Chez Black in Positano) there were people standing outside waiting for tables and still we had to ask for the bill. This never happens in the US!! I like that!

Also, most restaurants try to be very accommodating when you're looking for something that might not be on the menu. I was really in the mood for prosciutto and reggiano parmesano for lunch one day, but it was not on the menu. I asked the waiter if it would be possible to get that and he said 'sure, no problem'. He brought it out and it was fantastic. Don't be afraid to ask, unless you get a REAL sourpuss!! But in general, the waiters in Italy are much more pleasant than the waiters we ran into in Spain :-)

Also, as far as tipping is concerned, we normally tip 15 to 20% here in the States and I usually feel like giving Italian waiters the same because they are usually so accommodating. Maybe this is why they seemed to like us so much!!! :-) BUT, I'm told that the normal tip is do what you want to do.

Take a day trip to Amalfi

by Geisha_Girl

The town of Amalfi is only a 30 minute boat ride from Positano. We spent one afternoon cruising to this neighboring town. You can choose to either sit inside the Hydrofoil or enjoy the deck outside in one of their smaller boats.

You can purchase tickets for these day cruises at the booths on the beach in Positano. No advanced reservations were necessary when we were there.

When using car at Positano

by ubiq

Althought the most panoramic way to go to Positano is rented or own car, the best way is to go with the bus. If you are going with car, check out in advance that your accommodation has parking slot or garage.
Getting a parking place for car in Positano is maybe not impossible, but can be quite difficult.

Also the *only* serpentine road through Positano village is oneway; so if you want to go to upper parts of Positano, you have to first go to the bottom of the slope and then head back.

It is much easier to walk upward and downward steep stairs around.

On the other hand, it is very difficult to get lost with car in Positano. :-)

The "Old School" Pizzeria!

by Geisha_Girl about da Constantino Ristorante/Bar/Pizzeria

One of the simple things I will miss the most from my trip to Positano is falling asleep and waking up to the aroma of the wood-burning oven that is housed at da Constantino's ristorante across from our villa. Everyday we would pass this establishment and be greeted by the family that owns this local favorite joint. Luigi is the owner and has his whole extended family running the place. The restaurant sits at the top of Via Monterpertuso and showcases the best view of Positano from their dining room. Towards the side of the building is where the famous wood-burning oven is housed and Elia...the pizza busily twirling his dough and flirting with all the female patrons (while his wife slaves away in the kitchen!) The "Pizza con Funghi" is to die for and Luigi's special "Spaghetti Bolognese" was out of this world, man! We craved this pasta dish every day......and would complement it with a bottle of the vino rosso from Ravello that Luigi sold to us each time! The "Spaghetti Bolognese" was simple yet unique in flavor!
