Hi. I have a family member who was very recently widowed. She and her husband traveled to Italy frequently and they loved Posantino. He was cremated and she wants to scatter his ashes there. I will not be able to travel with her but I would love to have a gift available for her when she arrives to the special place. Some kind of memorial stone or possibly a tree planted in his memory. Also, he was an extreme wine enthusiast. Is there a way to have a special wine made in his name or a vinyard named after him?
Could you please tell me the different ways to get from Naples train station to Positano.
Thank you for your assistance
Myhusband and I are planning a 7 night trip from 2nd to 9th July 2013. We have always wanted to go to Amalfi and our trip is for our 50th birthdays so want it be memorable. We are happy to spend time in different areas such as sorrento, , positano, amalfi etc but need so advise.
Hi! Please suggest different means of travel (either/or taxi, bus ,train etc) to return to Naples airport from Positano. We fly out on 19 Sept at 12:25pm from Naples and would like to still spend the night of 18 Sept in Positano.

Buon giorno, my husband and I will be visiting Positano in September for two days, the 17th and 18th. We want to have a simple vow renewal ceremony and are looking for a local person that is willing to assist us with some simple arrangements. We've contacted some of the wedding planners listed on various websites but they are too expensive for what we want. We would like a beautiful outside location overlooking the sea, simple flowers for both, someone to perform the ceremony and a few pictures to remember the event. We will be staying at the Hotel Pasitea. If you or someone you know is interested in helping us plan this small, but special event, please reply. We are willing to pay a moderate fee.
Five adults are planning a car trip from the Rome airport to spend roughly a week each on the Amalfi Coast and on the island of Sicily. We contemplate May 2013. Would it be best to pick two villas, one for each week, and be based at these? Or would it be better to pick two towns each on the southern coast and Sicily and do it that way? We don't want to be forever packing and unpacking. We do NOT want to be in fourteen different lodgings on fourteen nights! None of our party have been to these parts of Italy and we want to have a wonderful, relaxed time! We assume we will be renting a very large car since we have five adults and their luggage. We have driven in Italy before...Any advice from experienced travelers will be greatly welcomed! Thanks!
Hello All Just hoping few folks can steer us to some great day trips from positano My partner and I will be there in Mid July and staying at the Casa Teresa Thanks Andy
My husband and I will be visiting Italy in September. We're staying in Rome but will visit Positano for 2 days. We've been married 21 years and would love to renew our vows. We're looking for someone local who can make some small arrangements for us for a reasonable compensation. We just want an area overlooking the water reserved, someone to perform the ceremony, a small floral bouquet and boutonniere, and several pictures taken by the same individual. This will be something very simple but we want it to be nice. Thank you for any assistance.
My wife and I are heading to Positano on our honeymoon next week from Rome. We are taking a train from Rome to Naples. Then we are renting a car and driving to Pompeii. After spending the day there, I am debating a few things: 1.) Can I make that journey from Pompeii to Positano in one day after spending the whole day traveling and touring? 2.) If so, is it safer and less scary approaching from the North (Sorrento) or from the South (Vietri sul Mare)? 3.) If it is not a good idea to make it, should we stay in Vietri sul Mare, which is to the South of Positano, so that we can drive up the coast in the a.m.? What do you think?
We went to Positano 5 years ago for my birthday and fell in love with the area. We said that when we renewed our wedding vows, we would return. So, we will be renewing our vows for our 10th wedding anniversary in September. We are looking for a restaurant to have our "reception" after the ceremony at Santa Maria Assunta Church. We will have a very small group - less than 10 people. It will be a lunch time affair as the ceremony is a morning one. On our wish list is: Good food with a variety as my mother doesn't eat seafood Great atmosphere Somewhere that feels like Positano - bougainvillea growing either on the terrace or above us, somewhere higher up, great view of Positano - that sort of thing Somewhere that will provide a wedding atmosphere - flowers and/or tulle on the terrace/balcony, a wedding cake, music that sort of thing. We have no problems being in a restaurant with other diners. Has anyone had or been to a small wedding reception at La Sponda or Caffe Positano for example. What was it like? Do either of those provide what we're looking for? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
we visited positano as children and now we are going back in our late teens and early twenties. is there any night life /night clubs fir this age group?
Good day, we will be staying in the Sorrento area the first week of April and are planning our stay. We are thinking about taking the bus trip up the coast and spending the day in Positano. Could you please give us an idea of what there would be to do for the day and do you have any idea what the bus schedule is. Thank you

Hello, My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon during April of 2012. We are looking to start our trip in Positano around April 5th, but it looks like this may coincide with the Easter holiday. Can anyone advise if most things in the city close down for the holiday, or is this still a good time to visit? Also, do you think we would be better off finishing our trip in Positano instead of starting here? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
About to finalize honeymoon plans for 2 weeks in Italy with Positano being our final stop. We will have been in Rome, Tuscany and Cinque Terre. Late in our planning, someone told to me that Positano would be too touristy, overcrowded, etc. Thoughts??? HELP!
Hello, Me and my sister are flying to Rome from Turkey in June for 7 days, and we are planing to stay in Positano for 4 nights and see around. Do you think it would be logical to stay in Positano and take a ferry to Capri, Napoli (if it is worth?) and visit Amalfi coast.. We are also planing to rent a car in Rome or Napoli (getting by train to Napoli and renting a car there)so we will be driving to Positano. We would very much appretiate if you could advise us whether Positano is the best location to stay for seeing around and also enjoying a beautiful beach etc. Thank you already!!
Ha anyone stayed at Casa Maria villa? Please describe an offer any comments on its location and nearby recommended restaurants. How close to the bus that circles Positano? Thanks for all replies.
Ciao travelers, Has anyone stayed in this private rental...La Villa Sirene? your thoughts/comments? We will be there in a few months and can't wait! It looks awesome! Second question: there are a number of differing posts on dining in position...some say it is outrageously expensive across the board and others disagree...specific restaurant suggestions would be appreciated along with an approx. cost per person...I don't mind spending the money if the food is wonderful....oh, also, we will have a full kitchen is there a market in positano? Many thanks!
Thank you all who posted a reply to my question(s)! They have been an invaluable help to planning my trip. Based on the answers, I am now planning to stay in Sorrento and do day trips. It has been suggested that I find a private driver to make these trips. I am told that a hotel concierge can usually make these reservations. We are staing at the Hotel Royal. If anyone has any thoughts on this they are appreciated. Again, thanks so much.
I am traveling from Rome to Sorrento for 3 nights stay then back to Rome. I have gotten advice to spend time in Positano. Should I book a room for one of the nights in Positano or forget staying in Sorrento altogether or just travel either place for a day? I am unsure if they are so close to each other it may not be worth it to change hotels for one night and carry luggage. Also, we are planning on spending a day in Capri. Should we depart from Sorrento or Positano? Thank you for you interest in helping.
My son and his wife will be in Positano in mid September on their honeymoon. First time in Italy, and first time for any international travel. They currently are planning on taking private transfers from the Naples airport to Positano, and then private transfer from Positano to Naples Train station for a train to Rome. However, they are re-considering the transport from Positano to Rome. They are a little apprehensive about the train travel (figuring out how to purchase the tickets, getting on the right train, pickpockets)and were wondering if bus service from Positano to Rome would be an option. This would save them some money, and maybe end up being less stressful...depending on how many transfers would be involved. Frst question: Is there bus service from Positano to Rome? Is this an option in mid September and would transfers be involved? Where would they need to change buses? Second question: Has anyone used this private transfer service? He was the least expensive quote they received at85 euros from airport to Positano, and same charge from Positano to Naples Train Station. Giovanni MARESCA www.johnnystourservice.com Third question: Would like suggestions as to things they should do/see while in Positano. If we read correctly, they can catch a bus or ferry to Amalfi, and then travel to the small village of Ravello. Would you recommend they ferry to Amalfi and maybe take the bus back? Any other suggestions? Fourth question: Any reasonably priced restaurants in Positano? Also read where one of the restaurants in Nocelle will send a car to pick you up at your hotel and bring you back. Anybody done this? How expensive is this dinner? Fifth question: Are ATM's readily available in Positano? All information is much appreciated!
We are staying in "La Sirene", private rental, which is up 65 steps. Are there mini taxi's or other small forms of transport that travel up and down the small streets? I'm having knee problems and wondering if there are Taxi's to hire or if I have to WALK THE STEPS and what the cost is?
I am confused about the location of these two hotels. Which is the better location for exploring the town and beach? Anybody ever stay at either of these hotels and could provide some insight? I also considered Villa Franca, but it appears to be even higher up on the cliffside. All advice appreciated!
