Positano is a small picturesque town with splendid coastal views on the famous Amalfi Coast in Campania, Italy. As the town rolls down toward the waters of the Amalfi Coast, it is perched on an enclave on the side of a hill.
Naturally beautiful, Positano attracts thousands of visitors every year. For most of the year, the town is full of people, but if you plan to visit Positano, it would be best to schedule your trip during late spring or early autumn, when the weather is beautifully warm and the crowds more manageable than in the summer months. However, all the months from March to November are still great times to visit, and thanks to its mild Mediterranean climate, the winter months aren’t bad either.
Get in Positano by Bus
If you’re taking the bus from Sorrento, choose a window on the right-hand side for the best view.
From Salerno, sit on the left side for the best views and excellent photo opportunities. The bus drops you at the top of the town.
You must walk, taxi, or bus to your hotel. During the peak season (starting in late April), this bus can get very crowded.
You may have to wait a couple of hours and fight your way onto a bus to get back.
Get in Positano by Car
Take the main road off of the Autostrada from Sorrento but make sure to have a reservation at a car park as it is challenging to find parking.
Get around Positano By bus
A local bus goes down and – especially – up the hill following the meandering, always congested road. On that bus, no Unico Campania tickets are valid! The charge to ride the orange bus around Positano is €1.20 if you purchase your ticket from a local shop, or €1.60 if you purchase directly from the bus driver.
