Help getting from Furore to Amalfi, Ravello & Positano

Hi there,
We are staying in a farm house on the Amalfi coast in Furore. We would like to see the coast cities
without hiring a private driver. There is a bus stop very close to Agriturisomo Sant' Alfonso but we are concerned whether the travel time is too long and that buses might be very crowded. If we take a bus to Amalfi for example could we take water taxis to Positano etc? We have 4 days to see the area.
Any idea what land taxis take?
Thank you!!

Has anyone walked from Furore on the Path of the Gods to Positano? If so how long was the walk?
Thank you

You don't mention time of year you're travelling - that will make all the difference, however I presume it's the summer months. The only way to guarantee space on the bus is to catch it very early - say before 9am.
You can use ferries to go from Amalfi to Positano. There are a few services per day. The bus goes from Amalfi to Ravello but in high season it is packed and the line extremely long.

The bus timetables for the route Sorrento to Amalfi are online. I don't have them available at the moment but just search for them. We were there in May and occasionally had to stand on the bus. As mentioned above, there are ferry services between Amalfi and Positano. Again timetables are available online. There is also an alternative bus service plying the coast which is more expensive but less popular so may be more comfortable. We used it to get to Ravello on one occasion as the queue for the normal bus was long.

We walked the Path of the Gods but don't remember it going through Furore. However, it was an extremely foggy day and who knows what we missed! From Bomerano to Montepertuso took us very roughly 4 hours, walking slowly with photo stops and a snack break along the way. The walk is marked on google maps (sentiero degli dei).

We used the Coop Sant'Andrea boat line many times when we stayed in Minori. The small ferries run frequently. The schedules are listed under Line Ferries on their website: http://www.coopsantandrea.com/index_en.asp

From Furore, you have no other option than to take the bus.

To get to the Path of the Gods, you would have to hike up to it, as it is high in the mountains.
