      1.Easiest way to get to Naples from Rome 2. Hotels in Island of Ischia

      Naples Jan 8, 2017 at 3:01 PM

      Dear local experts:
      I am traveling from Los Angeles CA, will land in Rome. 1. What is the quickest and easiest way to get from Rome to Naples. Please give me specific links, your personal experience, etc.
      I will stay a couple of days in Naples. I want to book a hotel on the island of Ischia and also want to spend at least one entire day in Prochida. I understand that the same ferry that runs from Naples stops on both islands - Prochida and ischia. How much is a ticket (average)?
      2. What hotel on Ischia is NICE, having a good THERMAL pool, a spa facility (sauna, jakuzzi), near beaches AND up to 150 US dollars a night? (hope it exists :-)
      Thank you all. Best,

      Bus to Salerno

      by latanacio Online Now Oct 4, 2016 at 10:23 AM

      Have booked a 9:52am train from Salerno and am staying in Positano. Should we be able to make it using the buses or would it be wiser to spend the night before in Salerno?

      Traveling from Rome to Positano

      by baileypowell Online Now Jun 22, 2015 at 11:36 AM

      Hello! I am working my way through booking a trip for my honeymoon and we've decided to take a side trip of two nights to Positano from Rome.

      I understand to access Positano we could take a train from Rome to Naples, then on to Sorrento, then take a bus to Positano...

      Is this the best way to access Positano from Rome, in your opinion? It does sound a little complicated, but we are on a budget. And should I book these train tickets in advance or just figure it out when we get to Rome?

    • Getting to Positano from Naples

      by jlhenry5 Online Now Nov 5, 2014 at 7:45 AM


      I'm planning a visit to Sorrento and Positano for next Friday. We will be staying in Naples and plan to take the Circumvesuviana from Naples to Sorrento. We thought it might be nice to wander around Sorrento for awhile before boarding a bus to Positano. I'm having a hard time understanding the SITA time table in regards to bus times to and from Positano. This is the last day of our trip, so it's important that we don't get stuck in Positano. Does anyone know what time the buses run until? Or any other advice for traveling from Naples to Positano or suggestions on must-see's would be appreciated!!

      We are planning traveling along the Amalfi Coast for 4 nights the end of April this year. We fly out of Naples. We'll be coming from the south through Salerno and wonder which town and hotels or B&Bs to stay at that offer good views and location at a reasonable cost. We'll be driving our own car so parking may be an issue too. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

      by WayneHartmann Online Now Oct 20, 2013 at 9:06 AM

      We are debating where to stay next view is Positano because transport options are better, especially water options. View 2 is Praiano because it is cheaper and quieter. This means we would have to travel to Positano and then do water transfers from there. We are thinking water because the busses are supposedly this so in May? What advice?

      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?
