      Bus to Salerno

      Positano 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?

    • Amalfi base in early April

      Sorrento Oct 18, 2016 at 4:57 PM


      My fiance and I are planning out the details of our honeymoon, and will have 4 nights (2 full days, 2 partial days) to spend in the Amalfi region in the beginning of April. We will head there from Rome, and need to go back to Rome at the end of our last day for our flight home.

      I've done a lot of research and I can't decide on the best city in the region to base ourselves; I'd appreciate some help in making that decisions. I am aware that it is low season and some hotels will be closed and the buses/ferries will be more limited.

      Things that we want to do/see (hopefully with fairly easy transport from our base) -
      - Pompeii
      - coastal views, hiking, +/- horseback riding if we can find somewhere reasonably priced and the weather cooperates
      - possibly Paestum (both ruins and mozzarella) - if we have time, not super high on the priority list
      - not sure about Capri, leaning against it

      Things we are less interested in -
      - shopping, souvenir shops
      - beach time (not the time of a year, not a priority)
      - high-end tourism/restaurants/bars
      - Naples

      Any pointers on where we should use as a homebase and how to spend our days with these things in mind? Sorrento is what I've heard is the easiest base, but I've also been reading about some of the smaller towns being potential options (Vietri Sul Mare near Salerno, others) - what is the best choice given time of year and ease of transport?

      Park & Ride Naples?

      Naples Sep 29, 2016 at 11:10 AM

      We are planning to stay outside of Naples, and then drive part way in when we need to. Is there a good place to park where we can then easily catch a bus or metro further into the centre?

      Any recommendation on what is better to bring to Italy. I'm not sure if is better to bring plenty of euro or travelers check. I will like to know what is safer to deal with to pay for goods, transportation and accommodation. Some body told me that American Express have a prepaid debit card. I will be based on Salerno for the first leg of my trip then Rome. Can I use my ATM debit card to get euros? I also read that in some hotels and B&B does not accept credit cards.

      Salerno to Minori

      by nalahacjr Online Now May 18, 2010 at 1:00 PM

      Hello to All -

      My wife and I will be coming to the Amalfi Coast in early July with nothing but a couple of backpacks and a tent. We fly into Rome and plan on taking the train from Rome to Salerno, with our final destination being a campsite in Minori. We arrive in Rome at 15.45 and I have looked into trains that leave at 17.30 and arrive in Salerno around 19.30 or 20.00. Now I am looking to find the best way to get from Salerno to Minori... bus, taxi, other? I am thinking bus, but haven't been able to locate anything online and was wondering if you would be so kind to tell me if this is possible and how frequent I can expect there to be buses - as we are arriving in Salerno around 20.00.

      Also, I am not 100% sure we will be able to make the campsite by the time it is closed for the night we arrive, so if you have any suggestions along that route of a cheap place to stay for one night please feel free to share

      Thank you in advance!!
