Rome to Positano via Salerno or Naples?

Jump to last reply

I have seen a few posts advocating taking a train from Rome Termini Station - 70 minutes to Naples, then from Naples to Positano.

When I look at the map, Positano is much closer to Salerno than to Naples: why do many people suggest going through Naples instead? is it because of the fast train (70 minutes)? Salerno to Rome most trains even the fast ones will take about 90 minutes. But that's only 20 minutes difference.

Does anyone know the travel time between Naples-Positano, versus Salerno-Positano? I though car or bus will take about 1.5 to 2 hours. Is that correct?

I am thinking of Rome - Salerno by train - then Salerno to Positano by ferry. On the way back, a private car from Positano to Naples, then train to Rome.
