Fastest transport Naples airport to Positano (in August...)

Hi all

20 August we arrive Naples at 10:50am.

What's the best option to get to our accommodation in Positano? Not adverse to a private car - our accommodation has quoted 100 euro which is fine.

But is there a better option i.e. by sea? I imagine the traffic will be a nightmare around lunchtime when we'd be getting to the coast.

We'll also have a bit of luggage (at least one large case each).

Thanks

Ash

There is no sensible water option. You'd have to take a bus or taxi from the airport to the port in Naples, then a ferry from there to Sorrento (only the 1 PM would work, arriving at about 1:45 PM), kill about an hour and then another ferry from there to Positano (and there's only one that would work with your timing, at 2:55 PM, arriving just before 4 PM. Then you'd have to get yourself and your luggage up the hill from the port to your accommodations (there are no roads, therefore no taxis, to the port at Positano).

To avoid the long slog by road from the autostrada down along the peninsula to Sorrento and then over the mountain to Positano (two hours on a good day), you could have the car service drive you straight down the autostrada to Salerno (about an hour and a quarter) where you could get a ferry to Positano. You'd still have the issue of getting yourself and your luggage up from the port into town, however.

Hey Els, I am looking at this very thing for my next trip. How about the Buonobus to Salerno? My flight is scheduled in at 0840 on September 13. I've never used this bus though. Website is buonobus.it/trasporto-pubblico-locale/linee-…

I was thinking Alibus to Napoli Centrale then train to Salerno to ferry but I think this might work better.

What do you think?

The fastest would be a car hire for sure. I used joebananalimos.net If you have time, train or ferry.
