For some reason everything I type is not getting posted, anyway make sure you check the bus stop locations because it is weird along the road. They will not wait very long for you and you may have to flag them down to stop as the roads are very narrow and not passable for two cars in the same direction. cheerrs

SITA bus, stops in positano on the way to amalfi, change in amalfi for ravello (which is breathtaking and should not be missed as you know ). the bus up to ravello may stop in the little seaside village of atrani also worth a stop.

many use the ferry to get to amalfi, with only a short walk to the bus station from there, but since you wish to see three places presumably in one day i think using the bus will be more reliable.

The Metro del Mare ferry closes down after Oct 8, 2010 till next summer, so the bus is the best way, as mentioned.

Check with your hotel about bus stops. We stayed at Villa Fiorita and there was a bus stop right at the hotel. It was very convenient. We parked the car the entire time we were in Sorrento and just used the bus. We were able to buy bus tickets at the hotel front desk.

Enjoy your trip.

Hi,
You can buy a bus ticket right at the train station in Sorrento and the bus stops right across the street. I think it was about 7 euro roundtrip and it stops in Positano and Amalfi. You can then catch the bus up to Ravello. You can tour the Villa Ruffalo, which is amazing and has beautiful views of the sea.

We were there on Nov 1st and the weather was gorgeous, with flowers still blooming in the gardens. There is also a pretty little square where you can have a coffee. When you are through with your coffee, you can take the stairways (which are like streets) back down to Amalfi. This was one of my favorite places in Italy.
Hope this helps.

I went to Sorrento and the Amalfi coast last year in mid-May for 3 days, 4 nights, and that wasn't enough to take in all the beauty. I would recommend staying longer than 2 days for sure. As others have posted, the SITA bus is the best method of transport. The station is 1-2 blocks away to the south of the main town plaza.

Travel Tips for Sorrento

Capri

by barryg23

I had expected Capri to be a tourist trap, but, while it is full of tourists, overcrowded and expensive, it also offers amazing scenery, lovely walks and many interesting things to see and visit. All in all it was one of the nicest places I visited in Italy. Have a look at my Capri page for more about this.

Capri is easy to reach from Sorrento. The hydrofoils leave very regularly (alomst every hour 19 Euros return) while the cheaper, but slower, ferry travels less often (14 Euros return).

Many ways to get to Sorrento ~ Train

by BorneoGrrl

You can get to Sorrento by car, rail, sea or bus and I opted for rail because I came from Florence. Chances are, if you go with rail, you will start from the central rail station in Naples. Then, you can buy a ticket from the ticket counter or tobacco shop (around $5) and walk towards the metro or Circumvesuviana station.

There will be several rails moving in the same direction but be sure to jump on the train where the end station is "Sorrento". The journey roughly takes an hour and you will pass some interesting stops, including Pompeii Villa Misteri, which is halfway between Naples & Sorrento and where you may consider a day trip

See Food!

by kcochran111

While in Sorrento, don't pass on local dishes featuring delicious fish and seafood. I enjoyed the most flavorful tuna salad and risotto allo scoglio on a vine-draped restaurant balcony in the center of town. And don't forget a chilled shot of limoncello as a digestivo.

Go to Capri Island

by longsanborn

For a fun 1-day excursion, you can go to Capri island from Marina Piccolo (Small Marina).

Take the local bus (orange color) that goes to Marina Piccolo. Buy the ferry ticket (Euro 24) from the ticket booth. Ferry ride is about 20 minutes.

You can spend the whole day in Capri. Don't have to stay overnight in Capri island as it is quite expensive.

Last ferry from Capri to Sorrento is in the evening; I will put the time schedule here later, as soon as I've scanned the information.

Marina Grande

by leics

Marina Grande is the ancient fishing village part of modern Sorrento, and well worth a wander.

It's tucked under (and built into, in some cases) the cliffs at the western end of the town, accessed by a road or (better) by a series of steps down from Via Sopra Le Mura.

There are bars, trattoria and restaurants (all closed when I visited)...no doubt the whole place is heaving in the season, with expensive sun-loungers out on the jetties and prices to match the customers.

But out of season it was possible to get a feel for what life was once like when this was a tiny village. Higgledy-piggledy houses, heaps of nets on the quayside packed away for the winter, fishermen mending nets for the coming season, local lads loudly playing football in the street (and annoying the residents). February is clearly the time to prepare for the season; apart from the net-mending, there was much evidence of painting, renovating and sorting-out everywhere.

And in the middle of it all, the church. A pretty church, worth going inside.

I liked Marina Grande very much out of season. I'm not sure I would like it so much when it is thronged with visitors and sun-worshippers, but it is the money they bring which allows such places to continue existing. Which is fair enough.
