Positano is a gourgeous little town perched on the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy. Positano has become a prefered vacation destination of many ; the Moneyed Jetset, as well as everyday people looking for a splurge Dream Vacation, even if just for a couple days, The place is not cheap, which matters not to those with plenty of ready cash. To most it is quite expensive. Some look at as a splurge that's with the cost, while others may not have or want to spend the money to stay there, and will opt to stay in the much more affordable spots of Salerno, Sorrento, Minori, or Maiore furhter down on the coast and make a day trip or tow to Positano, Capri, Pompeii, and or Naples. You can take local buses or ferry boats to get from town to town, or private car if you have the cash.
We wish to help guide you to a great vacation in Positano, or anywhere on The Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, or Capri, no-matter what your budget is, whether you're a budget travel, you have plenty of cash and money is no option, or you fall somewhere in-between, which is the monetary segment that makes up most of the travelers in Positano, Capri, or anywhere on the Amalfi Coast. We'll give you the information and tools, to put together a "Great Time on The Amalfi Coast." So come with us, "It's La Dolce Vita Time."
GETTING THERE :
You vsn Fly into Naples or ROme and make your way to the Amalfi Coast, by private car or by bus, or maybe traing frome Rome to Salerno, and then Ferry Boats from Salerno to Capri, or any town on the Amalfi Coast.
If you fly into Rome, you can either arrange for a private transfer to the AMalfi Coast, or take the Leonardo Da Vinci Express Train from the Airport in Rome into the Stazione Centrale (Train Station) in the center of Rome. When you arrive at the train station in Rome, you find out when the next fast Express Train to Salerno is, buy a ticket and wait for the train to leave. You take the train down to Salerno, which take only 1 hour and 15 minutes.
When you walk outside the train station in Salerno, it's a short 4 block walk to the Marine Terminal where you can catch a ferry boat to whichever town you are going to : Amalfi, Minori, Maiori, Positanom or Capri. Or you can stay at a hotel in Salerno, and make it your base to Positano and The Amalfi Coast.
Salerno is much more affordable than Positano, Amalfi, and other towns on the coast. You can take ferries to visit Positano or Capri for the day, and if you want to visit Naples, make your way to the trains station, hop on a train, and you'll be in Naples in about 50 minutes.
My favorite hotel in Salerno is the Hotel Plaza, which is right across the street from the train satation and 4 blocks walk to the Ferry Boat Terminal, making this hotel suoer convenient to use as a base for exploreing Capri, Naples, Pompeii, Positano and the entire Amalfi Coast of Italy. The Hotel Plaza is a wonderful hotel, that has lovely rooms at affordabel prices, with an excellent breakfast included in the price. Tell them Daniel (from New York City) sent you.
ROME to POSITANO - AMALFI
NAPLES AIRPORT to AMALFI COAST
PROFESSIONAL DOOR to DOOR SERVICE
From NAPLES AIRPORT
You can take a private car or Mini Van from the Airport to anywhere on the Amalfi Coast or Sorrento. Rome to Positano - Amalfi Coast, Naples or Sorrento.
If you are on a budget and want to take public transportation from Naples Airport to Sorrento or The Amalfi Coast, your first step is to catch an airport bus to the Central Train Station. At the Train Station in Naples, you go downstairs to catch the Circumvesuviana Train from Naples to Sorrento. If you're staying in Sorrento, make your way to your hotel. If you're going to a town on the Amalfi Coast, you catch a bus outside the Train Station. There are two options, the local Blue Sita Bus, which is cheaper, but much more crowded and sometimes much more dificult to get on. If you opt for the Local Sita Bus, you might have to wait on a long line, and it might take 30 minutes to an hour to get onto a bus.
Your better option is to take the Red Tour Bus, which cost more, but is worth the extra money, as you shouldn't have to wait more than 15 minutes to get on, it doesn't make as many stops, and it's far less crowded, more comfortable and pleasant to ride. It's worth the extra $10 ...

Since I first stayed at the Casa Albertina on my second visit to Positano, I have Loved this hotel. It's a beautiful little hotel, that though rated as 3 Star, it's more like a Luxury 5 Star Hotel. It's at a wonderful location in town, that affords beautiful views of Positano, and it's only a 1 minute walk to
Da Vincenzo, one of Positano's best and most popular restuarants. And the Latteria, a little Positanese Italian Deli is just a couple hundred feet away, and makes some of the best most affordabel food in town.
