Day trip from Sorrento with late evening return

We will be staying in Sorrento for 3 nights next week and would like to take a day trip to Positano. We got a recommendation to see Chef Andrea at Buca do Bacci and I noticed they have a cooking class followed by dinner which sounds fun but I think we will finish too late to catch the ferry back to Sorrento. I would like recommendations on the best way to get back from Positano to Sorrento in the evening. What are the options and estimated costs? Thanks!

Private car service which would run about 80 euros (give or take) or the SITA bus. The bus would be less than 10 euros - not sure what one ride costs these days but probably around 5 euros.

The bus schedule: amalficoastweb.com/orari_sita_bus_timetables…

Not sure how late they run.

If you decide on car service, plan to walk about 15 up through the pedestrian only portion of the village to the first possible pick up location: Piazza dei Mulini (Buca is down near the beach reachable via stairs, pathways)

Currently, the LAST bus from Positano to Sorrento is at 23:40 (daily except Sunday). The penultimate bus back to Sorrento from Positano is at 21:40 (daily). The one-way fare is 3.80 Euros. During the summer, these buses can get crowded.


(Use this timetable, which is OFFICIAL)
