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.
Connections, bags, schedules...getting to the Amalfi Coast from Rome can be stressful!
The trip from Rome to Positano or Amalfi can be long and complicated: plan for at least 5 hours from when your flight lands, if you are lucky with all your connections.
From Rome Fiumicino, you will need to take the Leonardo Express shuttle train to the main Rome Termini station. From here, you will catch the train to Naples, then the local Circumvesuviana train to Sorrento, and finally the bus to Positano/Amalfi. Or you can take the train from Rome to Salerno and from there get the ferry that stops at a number of towns along the coast (this service is active only in the summer and routes are suspended in case of rough seas).
The connections make it hard to plan ahead, as you risk pre-booking a train ticket (the least expensive tickets do not allow changes or cancellations) and then missing the train. You cannot buy tickets for the train to Sorrento or the bus to the Amalfi Coast in advance.
The Circumvesuviana train from Naples to Sorrento) is always very crowded and has no room for luggage; you will probably have to stand for most of the hour-long trip. Buses from Sorrento the Amalfi Coast are also often standing-room only.
If your flight arrives in the afternoon, your only option is to book a transfer with a private transfer, otherwise you must spend the night in Rome or Naples before leaving for the Amalfi Coast.
With public transportation: total cost of ticket is about €60/person and the trip takes 5-7 hours.
With a private transfer including sedan or minivan with driver and luggage transport from the airport to your hotel, consider a cost of around €500 and a trip time of 3-4 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. It is especially ill-advised to attempt to drive the coast after a long trip and with jetlag.
Do the drivers speak English?
All the car service companies vetted by Positano.com employ drivers who are English-speakers, along with a number of other languages.
Will the driver wait if my flight is delayed?
Yes, the driver will have your flight number and will keep track of any delays to wait for you upon arrival.
I am arriving from Rome. Should I book a transfer from there or take the high-speed train to Naples to get there faster?
If you are landing at the Rome airport, we suggest a private transfer directly from the airport to avoid having to connect at the main Rome Termini station. If you are already in the center of Rome, it makes sense to take a high-speed train to Naples and book a private transfer from the Naples train station to the Amalfi Coast. If you book your ticket in advance, you can take advantage of discounted prices.
Can I combine a transfer with a tour?
Yes, you can book a transfer from Rome or Naples to the Amalfi Coast that includes a stop at Pompeii, Herculaneum, or Mount Vesuvius before continuing on to the coast.
Your credit card will not be charged upon booking.
Very positive experience! We were met at the airport by our driver holding a sign with our name at the arrivals gate, and he was friendly and helpful despite our delayed arrival. During the drive, he told us all about the Amalfi Coast and gave us names of his favorite restaurants, which were all excellent. Highly recommended!John S.
After an international flight and with jet lag, we really didn't want to have to deal with public transportation...we booked this transfer from Rome to Positano, and it was the perfect solution. Our driver was a one-man welcome wagon, greeting us with a smile at the Fiumicino airport in Rome and dealing with luggage. During the drive, he gave us some excellent tips on things to see and do...and great restaurants! Our holiday began on the right foot with his warm welcome, and our transfer was a lovely introduction to Italy!Rita B.
The best part of our transfer from Rome to Amalfi was the two hours we stopped in Pompeii to visit the ruins. The driver waited in the car to keep an eye on our bags, and had cold water waiting for us when we got back. After two hours under the hot sun, it was such a relief to hop in the car and be taken directly to our hotel.Brad N.
