That route was still going in early 2010 - twice daily in one direction, once in the other, weekdays only... by that winter it was down to one and one, and now seems to have gone completely!
Think you'll find that this is as close as you can get these days...
Also not on Sundays, nor public holidays!
Except during the current temporary diversion caused by a landslip (*), it would usually be quicker to take the CV train to Sorrento and then a SITA bus the rest of the way...
(*) This will no doubt end eventually, but if travelling over the next few days....
Thanks for the replies.
It seems like Positano is a popular tourist destination and judging by the hotels that are fully booked, I am guessing a lot of people visit Positano.
Which makes it confusing as to why it is so hard to get there. Right now, the only two options I see are to spend 100 euros on a private car or take my luggage on a commuter train from Naples and transfer to a bus.
There really should be a more direct method to get here. But it doesn't seem like the direct bus still runs. And the ferry seems to be in question.
You'd think with this many tourists (obviously coming from Naples), there would be more options.
Yet, somehow the crowds still manage to make it. It would be nice if there was a more direct route that wasn't so pricey but people by the thousands take the public transportation and arrive there.
I'm not sure quite what sort of metropolis you're expecting Positano to be, but they've about 1800 hotel beds, and a population of some 4000...
Whilst stamping your feet about what there really should be may achieve little, giving an idea of when they might expect your visit would at least make assisting you somewhat easier!
