Sicily - from Positano area?

What is the easiest way to get to Sicily (Taormina) from the Positano area? Flying into Rome, having driver bring us to Positano, want to stay a few days in Sicily at the end of our trip and then back to Rome. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Dear mrszuhwiggins,

I think it would be easiest to hire a private driver for the drive from Positano to Napoli Capdichino Airport and then take a flight to Palermo with AirOne, Alitalia(watch out for strikes), or Alpieagles(choose Palermo in the drop-down menu):

You can also take an overnight boat from Napoli Molo Beverello or Salerno to Palermo:

Then I think you might need to take a train from Palermo to Taormina, however, perhaps someone might help out and let you know if there's air service available at least to Catania.

Buona Fortuna...
