Driving routes and more along the amalfi coast

I am arriving Rome airport (FCO) mid day in June 20 and planning to pickup a rental car and then drive to Positano, then stay the night and then drive to Ravello and throughout the coast and go back to Rome early evening.

How ling will it take to driver to Positano from the airport mid day and will I reach there by evening? Any recommended routés for trip to Revello and back to Rome? Anything you would stop to see on the way? Is all this possible to do in a day and a half?

It's possible to do in a day and a half - but you're not going to se a whole lot. Unless you can spend more time (to see Pompeii, Capri etc) I would just use the day elsewhere on your trip.

It is about three hours or more from Rome to Positano. There are back roads to the autostrada from Amalfi area and also from Furore so you don't have to backtrack along the coast.

Hi D,

If you are flying in from the US, I strongly urge you not to drive to Positano that day. Jet lag could literally kill you.

If not, driving routes and directions are at www.viamichelin.com and www.mappy.com.

You could also train to Salerno from Rome, take the ferry to Amalfi, visit Ravello by bus, go to Positano by bus, overnight, take the SITA bus to Mehta and the Circumvesuviana train to Naples, from whence you train to Rome.

I think that this would be a lot more enjoyable.

For Ferry schedules Positano Amalfi - Salerno (P.zza della Concordia):

For trains, see http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html

Enjoy your visit.
