Florence to Positano via train to Naples or Salerno – which do you recommend?

Jump to last reply

We (two sixty–something couples) will be traveling from Florence to Positano on a Saturday in mid-June of 2014. We have narrowed our options down to taking a train to either Naples or Salerno then have a car service take us to our hotel in Positano. For several reasons (mostly less hassle – more convenience), we have ruled out the options of taking buses or taking ferries from either city. We will spend four nights in Positano and we have decided to then have a car service take us to Naples to catch a train to Rome.

It seems there are pros and cons for going via either Naples or Salerno but we are leaning towards Naples. In May of 2001 my wife and I flew in to Naples, picked up a rental car and drove to Positano. I had originally set it up to return the rental car in Salerno to take a train to Rome. However the people at my hotel in Positano said it would be much better to drive to the Naples Centrale train station rather than Salerno so they talked me in to it. I guess their recommendation to not drive to Salerno is why I’m leaning towards Naples.

There probably isn’t much difference between either option but in your opinion, given our situation, is there any advantage for choosing Salerno or should we just stick with Naples? Thanks for your help.
