Bus from Positano to Salerno

by Qdevaus

Three ladies visiting Positano from Australia in October 2010 and looking for bus to take us from Positano to Salerno so we can catch train to Termini on Tuesday 12 October. We would prefer not to get the ferry to Salerno and do not want to get train through Naples. Can anyone help with relevant timetable? We would like to get the 11.32am train from Salerno to Termini.

I think you will first need to get to Amalfi then change buses there (both buses under quadro 15).

Make sure you indicate clearly that you want the Positano>Amalfi bus to stop.

Alternatively, you could take a taxi to Amalfi then get the bus from there.

the bus transfer in amalfi is really easy. just a small building near the harbor, all the busses on the south shore stop there.

Re: Bus from Positano to Salerno

by Richard.GVA

Leics is correct.
I am too lazy to check the SITA bus website, but can confirm that the (blue) SITA buses to Amalfi leave from Salerno station in roughly hourly intervals (more frequent during peak season), and that there are regular connecting buses in Amalfi to Sorrento via Positano. The bus is cheap, comfortable and will take a couple of hours for the whole trip. Relatively narrow road, nothing but curves, tunnels and breathtaking views.
Also don't miss Ravallo.

Travel Tips for Positano

Positano - my (almost every) day trip from Praiano

by dvideira

Although I have stayed in Praiano, Positano was my starting point to many activities.
There, in a small dock besides the grey peebly beach we find ferries to Amalfi, Sorrento, Salerno, and Capri - and also we can take the Sita bus to Sorrento if we want to go to Pompeii.
Almost every day I took the Pullmino Giallo ( a small yellow bus ) that conects Praiano to Positano and enjoyed the road climbed through orange and lemon groves and terraced vineyards - thanks to the heroic-genius italian bus drivers, who made me feel confident in miracles and relax while we were on perhaps the most winding narrow road in Italy, with its sheer cliffs, and the cobalt-blue Tyrrhenian Sea 300m below...

Italian Beaches

by kcochran111

Most Italian beaches are not free. Sadly, if you want to sunbathe in the sandiest, sunniest part of the beach, you'll probably have to pay a couple of Euro for the privilege.

Beaches in the Amalfi Coast are divided with orange ropes to separate the free side from the private side. For about 5-10 Euro you can rent a lounge chair on the private side.

Ravello

by TRimer

About seven kilometres (10 minutes by car or bus ) from Amalfi is the town of Ravello, set like a natural balcony in mountains and ravines over the Gulf of Salerno. Rich in scenery, culture, and good living, it’s an ideal summer retreat for travelers seeking an escape from the heat, and time to relax and breathe the fresh air. In July, an outdoor musical festival is hosted in the gardens of Villa Rufolo overlooking the sea.

Check out my Ravello pages for more info and pictures.

Steps

by barryg23

The bus to Positano stops outside Bar Internazionale, on the main road above Positano. From here it is quite a climb down to the Positano (steps, steps and more steps), and while the views along the way are spectacular, it was still a fair old hike. As we got the boat to Amalfi, we did not have to climb all the way back.

Buca Di Bacco is a great spot!

by Erin74 about Buca Di Bacco

Buca di Bacco is located right on the beach in Positano, a very convenient spot for dining during your visit. While it's always crowded due to its location, I found the service to be extremely good and the food quite tasty. They also have a gelato bar if you just want to pop in for sweets. I ordered the catch of the day, a local whitefish. It was roasted whole and then filleted tableside (very impressive to all of us). The fish was delicate and flaky-- really delicious. It was great to eat something so light after all the heavy pasta dishes we'd been having. It was served with roasted potatoes. We also had a good dessert here. It looked like a pie and had custard and fresh berries in it. Yum!
