How long does it take to get to Capri from the Naples port?
By high-speed ferry, about an hour; by speedboat, 40 minutes.
If my hotel is located in a pedestrian area, how can I arrange a transfer?
Where possible, transfers are provided by taxi. However, many hotels in the center of Capri and Anacapri are in pedestrian areas, so the final let must be completed on foot. Your luggage will be transported directly to your hotel.
What time does the last ferry to Capri depart?
From June to September the final ferry from Naples to Capri departs at 9:00pm. The remaining months of the year, the last ferry departs at 7:00pm. If you are arriving in late evening, you will have to book a private transfer by speedboat, or spend the night on the mainland.
My flight lands in the late afternoon. How can I be sure to catch the last ferry?
Generally, you need to allow for at least an hour between your flight arrival time at the Naples airport and the ferry departure time for Capri; in normal traffic conditions, the drive between the Naples airport and Molo Beverello is 30 minutes. From the Rome airport to Naples, allow for at least 3 hours by car. Remember that the baggage reclaim at Fiumicino is notoriously slow.
What happens in case of rough seas?
If seas are so rough that boat crossings are suspended, our partners will advise you as soon as possible and help you find accommodations on the mainland; your transfer will be moved to the next day. It is extremely rare that crossings are suspended between April and October, as the sea conditions are generally calm during those months.
Do I need to book my ferry ticket myself?
No, ferry tickets are included in the price of the transfer and will be provided by your driver, who will take you directly to the pier.
Getting to the Amalfi Coast stress-free has never been easier!
There is no direct route by public transportation between Naples and the Amalfi Coast: if you are landing at the Naples airport, you have to take a bus to Sorrento and then transfer to another fro Positano or Amalfi. The trip takes at least three hours.
If you are arriving at the Naples train station, you need to take the local Circumvesuviana line from Naples to Sorrento and from there the Sita bus from Sorrento to Positano. The Circumvesuviana is a commuter train and not set up for long trips (it can take over an hour to get from Naples to Sorrento). You will probably have to stand for most of the trip. There are no escalators from the ground floor of the train station in Naples to the Circumvesuviana platform underground. In addition, Sita buses are always very crowded, especially in summer, so often there is no seating. Often there is quite a distance between the bus stop and your hotel in Positano, meaning you have to walk carrying your luggage!
The best option for a simple and easy arrival is to book a private transfer
With public transportation, the cost of the entire trip is about €30/person, and takes about 2 hours.
Private transfers include pick up at the Naples airport or train station and car or minivan transfer to your hotel. The trip takes about 1.5 hours.
If you were planning on visiting the ruins of Pompeii during your time on the Amalfi Coast, consider booking a transfer than includes a stop at the archaeological site to make the most of your time!
Why do you suggest booking a private transfer rather than renting a car?
Navigating the roads around Naples and the Amalfi Coast is not a simple endeavor for those who are not used to narrow, curving roads with heavy traffic. Getting around the Coast by car can be complicated and costly: there is limited parking and it's expensive: figure about €5/hour.
If my flight arrives in the evening, can I make it to the Amalfi Coast on the same day?
Public transport service to the Amalfi Coast runs until about 9pm. If your flight lands in the evening, the only way to reach the coast is by booking a private transfer.
Do the drivers speak English?
All the car service companies vetted by Positano.com have drivers who speak English and a number of other languages.
Will the driver wait if my flight or train is delayed?
Yes, the driver has your flight or train number and keeps track of any delays and will be waiting for you upon arrival.
Can I request an infant car seat?
Yes, car seats are available upon request and at no additional cost from all the car service companies.
Can I request to stop along the route?
Yes, you can book a transfer with a stop at Pompeii, which is a great way to optimize your time and budget.
Your credit card will not be charged upon booking.
A fantastic service! The driver was waiting with a sign in the airport, even though our flight was delayed. During the drive, he gave us some great information about the area that was helpful during our stay and made our arrival on the Amalfi Coast very enjoyable. We definitely recommend this service...worth every cent!Jacquelyn J.
