Rome - Positano. Any Suggestions?


I am traveling to Italy in May with 2 other adults. What is the best (easiest+cheap) way of getting to Positano? Would like to get to Positano in a day. I have read a private car but only wanted go down that road as a last resort.

Thanks in advance.

I suggest taking the bus from Rome (bus leaves at 7am and 3pm from Tiburtina bus terminal) to Sorrento. The link to the bus web site is as below, cost 18 Euro, 3.45 hours. You can buy ticket online too.


Then from Sorrento, take the SITA bus to Positano. Buy ticket at local tobacco shop.

Take direct train from Rome to Salerno, then (depending on the time of your arrival) take a ferry (or bus) from Salerno to Positano.

If you do a search of this board you will see this discussed MANY times and the various options.

I would consider taking the train to Naples, and then a private limo transfer to Positano from the station. The driver/car would cost about 100 Euros (+or-) but split 3 ways...and it would be by far the quickest...and easiest.
