travel from Positano to Naples

by cineteach

Four of us will be in Positano in July, 2011 and would like to know the best way to get to Naples. I know that we can hire a driver for around 100 euros but is there a way to travel by ferry or hydrofoil? I can't seem to pull up any schedules at this time.The website for the hydrofoils seems to be shut down. We would appreciate any information we can get.

Yes and yes. But as far as I know they only run in summer, which might explain why the site is down as you said.

Positano isn't that big, you won't have trouble finding the pier.

The ferry passes through Positano several times a day for most of the year. the only problem you must bear in mind is that it won't call in to Positano in bad weather as there is no terminal as such only a small jetty. There are also buses which will take you to Sorrento and from there you can get the Circumvesuviana train to Naples. the buses, I am told, are not always reliable as far as punctuality is concerned but the trains from Sorrento are very regular and it is an excellent service.

as maryimelda has indicated, the SITA bus service, as dubious as its alleged schedules may be, is still far more reliable than the ferry service, as we discovered the hard way. the circumvesuviano train line to naples from sorrento runs frequently and goes right to the main train station.

My sister and brother-in-law just got back to our home town yesterday from Positano. The hydrafoils run between Naples and Positano during July and the website for the lines has changed from .com to .net. You should get the site at:

Please let me know it the site comes up for you. It does for me. :-)

Thanks to all of you for your quick responses to my question. I just found this site today and didn't expect to hear from anyone so soon. I appreciate your advice and will look up the website for the water transports, but keep in mind the advice about the train from Sorrento to Naples as well. Again, thanks.

The Metrodelmare ferries only run during the high season months and will thus be avaialable during July.

Otherwise, you can simply get bus (or taxi, if you wish) to Sorrento, then take the Circumvesuviana train to Naples (hiring a car all the way will cost you a lot of money and, imo, is entirely unnecessary). The bus stops outside Sorrento station and trains are safe, comfortable enough,frequent and cheap. Sorrento>Naples takes an hour, Positano > Sorrento about 40 minutes. The whole journey will cost you less than 10 euro one way.

Circumvesuviana timetables:

Bus timetables here under quadro 14/15:

This is also the way to get to Pompeii (train stops outside the siteentrance at Pompeii Scavi station), Herculaneum (station Ercolano, 10minutes well-signed walk from there) and Villa Poppaea (station Torre Annunziata, 5 minutes signed walk from there).

Travel Tips for Positano

Virgin Maria's finger

Here is the natual arch you can see driving from Positano Belveder to the town centre.

The legend says that it was created by Virgin Maria to chase the Devil. She put her finger on the rock and the Devil felt in the Sea.

S. Maria Assunta view from Marina Grande beach

by dvideira

Right in the centre of Positano, in the small Piazza Flavio Gioia, stands the parish church of Santa Maria Assunta. The building with its large majolica-mosaic dome contains important works of art, outstanding between them is a Circumcision, a stupendous work by Fabrizio Santafede, from the end of the sixteenth century, and a delightful thirteenth-century Byzantine-style panel depicting the Virgin and Child.

Burn a Rented Rubber!

by Geisha_Girl

Rubber boat, that is! Some of the best times we had was when we rented various size boats....both wooden and rubber....and set off to cruise the coastal towns. There are several small islands off the coast of Positano that offer the best secluded areas for swimming, snorkeling, and yacht watching!

By car ??

by dvideira

Driving along the Amalfi Coast , except for the A3 to and from Salerno, means driving on winding two-lane narrow roads. Although (and perhaps because) driving there requires high levels of concentration, accidents are not frequent.
Even so, WATCH OUT !! Scooters and buses are everywere and it's amazing to see these people driving along these serpentine roads... If you don't have a bit of sense of adventure, do not drive there...
The roads are realy narrow and driving conditions are extreme but, on the other hand..... the views will make you forget all about it.

Le Terrazze

by HELEN about Le Terrazze

A menu without prices usually means rouble... This restaurant sits on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean. It's beautiful, but the food is not worth the price. The menu is very minimal and the food is very average.
