My husband and I will be in Sorrento for three days (having come from Capri) and are looking for the fastest way to get to Salerno to pick up a rental car to drive to Calabria. Our date to leave Sorrento is Thursday, 3 June. After reading elsewhere on this site, It will be over 3 hours by bus. Since we would like to visit Paestum that day on our way to Amantea, I would like to see if there are faster options. Is Salerno the best place to pick up a car? We will be heading to Tropea after Amantea, and plan to drop off the car at Lamezia airport before flying to Rome for the last 4 days of our trip. FYI, the reason we are driving in the first place is that I am visiting my grandfather's village near Amantea, and we need the flexibility of a car. Thanks!
