Best transportation from Naples to Ravello?

We are arriving by train in Naples and need to find out what is the best way to get to Ravello? I heard the buses are really good in this area.

Best option would be private car hire to your hotel in Ravello, not of course the cheapest option !

Otherwise ,

Circumvesuviana commuter train to Sorrento (65 minutes; 4 Euros, frequency every 30 minutes.

SITA bus to Amalfi (50 minutes; 3.60 Euros; hourly frequency) or Coast to Coast coach to Amalfi.

Bus from Amalfi to Ravello.

Thanks for the input. Do you have a recommendation for a private car company?

You could save some money and time by taking the train to Salerno (from Naples or from your starting point, skipping Naples entirely) and either the bus or a car service from Salerno to Ravello. Sorrento is a difficult place to get into and out of by road.

I use them for transfers between Naples and Positano. Last October I paid 110 euro which was worth it for the convenience and time saved.>

We're going to Ravello in early September and were thinking of getting the train from Naples to Salerno, and then maybe boat from Salerno to Amalfi - any thoughts on this? Last time we took the bus from Naples all the way round the coastline - bit of a scramble getting on the bus with luggage, and a long windy journey!

That's fine if you want to do it that way - via boat.

I would highly recommend the ferry from Salerno to Amalfi (then bus or taxi up to Ravello). A wonderful way to experience the gorgeous scenery of the AC!

And is it okay to take luggage on the boat? - since we'll be coming direct from our flight into Naples.

Yes, luggage is allowed on the ferry. If it is a standard size suitcase (not carry-on), then you may have to pay an extra 1.50 for it when you purchase the ticket at the ticket booth.
