Positano is a picturesque town located on the Amalfi Coast, Italy. The houses are colorful, the streets are steep and the views are to die for. During the summer months the area is packed with holiday makers looking to soak up some of the Italian sunshine, relax and eat the delicious pizza and pasta that Italy is known for.
Those arriving from an international destination can fly into either Rome or Naples. From Rome Airport it is approx a 4 hour drive – however this is largely dependant on the amount of traffic as the windy roads of the Amalfi Coast can get very crowded in the summer months. Alternatively, you can take a train to Naples then a bus/ transfer into Positano.
If flying into Naples, then it would be best to organise a transfer to pick you up from the airport and transfer you to Positano – this will cost around $100 to $120 for a private transfer.
Aldo Limo’s provide exception service in the area and are reasonably priced.
