Direct transfers to your hotel on the Amalfi Coast!

Why choose a private transfer to the Amalfi Coast?

  • There are no direct public transportation routes connecting Naples and Positano
    To get to the Amalfi Coast from the Naples Capodichino airport involves taking two buses, or a bus, a train, and then a second bus and travel time averages about 3 hours, with connections to make and stairs to lug your bags up and down. From Rome, of course, it's even worse!
  • From Rome to Positano and Amalfi you will need to make at least four changes
    Consider that it will take at least 4 hours from Rome, if you are lucky and make all your connections! You will have to change at least four times, and you will have to take a lot of stairs with your luggage. In the crowded summer season, some connections will be standing room only.
  • If you are traveling with a group of family or friends, the cost of a private transfer is often not much more than the combined ticket price for taking public transportation. Positano.com has vetted a select number of transfer companies with professional drivers.

From Rome

Why you should book a private transfer

Be aware that the journey from Rome to the Amalfi Coast will take at least four hours from the time you land, and only if you make all the connections. If your flight lands in the late afternoon, you will need to book a private transfer or consider spending a night in Rome or Naples and continuing your journey to the Amalfi Coast the following day.

From Rome's Fiumicino Airport, you must catch the Leonardo Express shuttle train to the central Rome Termini station. From here, you first take the train to Naples, then transfer to the Circumvesuviana to Sorrento, where you will board a bus to the Amalfi Coast. The trip will take 5-7 hours, including connections and stairs to navigate with your luggage.

Cost: around €70/person; Duration: 5-7 hours

FAQ - Private Transfers

Why is travelling by private driver better than renting a car?
It takes experience to navigate the streets of Naples and the Amalfi Coast, as they are narrow, winding, and heavily trafficked. In addition, if you are tired and jet-lagged from a long flight, it's better to avoid driving yourself.
Do drivers for private transfer companies speak English?
All the private transfer companies selected by Positano.com have professional drivers who speak English and often other languages, as well.
If my flight is delayed, will the driver wait for me at the airport?
Yes, drivers have all the flight information for each client and will wait for delayed arrivals.
If I am flying into Rome, should I book a transfer from the Rome airport or take an express train as far as Naples and meet the driver there?
If you are flying into Rome, we suggest booking your private transfer from the airport to avoid having to take the shuttle train to the main Rome Termini train station and then catching the express train to Naples. If you are already in Rome vacationing, it can be faster to take the express train to Naples and book your private transfer from there. If you prepurchase your train tickets, you will often find discounts.
Can I add a tour to my transfer?
Of course! You can stop to visit Pompeii or Herculaneum during transfers from Rome or Naples to the Amalfi Coast.

From Naples

Why you should book a private transfer

There are no direct connections between Naples and the Amalfi Coast. If you are arriving at the Naples airport, you must take the bus to Sorrento and then transfer to another bus for Positano or Amalfi. The trip takes at least three hours.

If you are arriving at the train station in Naples, you must catch the Circumvesuviana train which runs between Naples and Sorrento, and then transfer to the Sita bus in Sorrento to Positano. The Circumvesuviana is a local commuter line, not designed for long trips (the trip between Naples and Sorrento takes more than an hour) and the route is often standing room only. There are also no escalators or elevators to help you get your bags to the tracks. Public Sita buses are also always very crowded, especially during the summer months, and there is often no seating available.

Cost: around €15/person; Duration: around 3 hours
