Naples to Positano Transportation?

Hi,

I am looking for the best options to transfer to Positano without spending too much money. I have read that renting a car is not a good idea to drive around the Amalfi Coat but instead to hire a private driver to take you from point A to B. What's your advice?

Option 1 - Rent a Car

Option 2- Hire a pick up services to transfer us from Naples Airport to Positano and use public transportation during my stay ( ferries, buses, or even renting a vespa)?

Thanks in advance,

Taymi

Don't rent a car. Don't rent a car

Hiring a private car and driver Is great, but expensive.

Naples Airport to Positano by bus:

1. www.curreriviaggi.it (airport bus to Sorrento): 10 Euros

2. www.sitasudtrasporti.it (Line 5070 Sorrento to Positano): 3.80 Euros

A taxi or private transfer from the airport will cost 130 Euros to your hotel in Positano.

Line 5070 schedules include Sorrento/Positano/Praiano/Amalfi

SITA also has an hourly bus between Amalfi and Ravello

UNICO COSTIERA BUS TICKETS:

45 minutes: 2.50 Euros

90 minutes: 3.80 Euros

24 hours: 7.60 Euros

3 days: 18 Euros

There is also limited hydrofoil service between Sorrento and Positano/Amalfi:

www.alicost.it

There is also ferry boat service between Positano and Amalfi:

www.travelmar.it

The UNICO COSTIERA tickets do NOT cover the boat services.

Option 2: when on the coast (after driver takes you there) use ferries to get around as much as possible. The buses are a nightmare.

To Fabby55 - See my post on your question... I strongly recommend for you to get a private transfer even if is a little pricy will be worth it otherwise it can be a little chaotic. I don't know what your time in Positano will be but I'm sure you don't want to waste too much time in public transportation.

Just don't take the train to Sorrento. LOL!! It is a disaster - it takes a LONG time and the taxi from Sorrento to Positano still costs over 100 Euros. We booked a private driver to take us BACK to Naples after visiting Positano and he stopped for 3 hours at Pompei and it only cost us 160 Euros. Have fun! You will love it there!!
