Advice on getting to the Amalfi Coast - recommendations, your experiences

Jump to last reply

OK - for you AC experts...

I am not fond of making air connections (at least the fewer the better) or waiting around for too much on my vacations. We can fly to Rome and connect to Naples from there (or from CDG, which is even less appealing to me). However, the layover in Rome would be almost 4 hours and then we would still need to get to Positano from Naples. Just a day lost in my mind.

Is it totally crazy to scrap that and hire a driver from Rome and just be on our way? Anything to see on the drive from Rome to Positano? Or a train from Rome to Salerno, then the ferry to Positano (I assume in May they will be running)? Are any of the trains from Rome to Salerno high speed?

I am not necessarily looking for the least expensive option here but I am leaning toward what is most expedient...I am gonna want to GET there and get on with the vacation.
