6. Things to avoid

Positano and Amalfi by ferry

We do not recommend going to or coming from the Amalfi Coast (Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, etc.) by ferry.

Ferries to the Amalfi Coast leave from the port of Sorrento, which is 1,3 Km away – 19 minutes on foot from the B&B.

If you plan a 1-day trip, the two best options are a shared boat tour (with a visit to Positano and Amalfi, lunch and swimming included) or rent a scooter; a car rental with driver is also a good option.

Napoli Capodichino airport by train or ferry

Do not come or go to Napoli Capodichino airport by ferry or train. The two best options are the direct shuttle bus or a car rental with driver. Read here for more information and costs.

1-day trip to Capri by ferry

We advise against going to and returning from Capri by ferry on the same day.

Ferries to Capri leave from the port of Sorrento, which is 1,3 Km away – 19 minutes on foot from the B&B.

The best option to visit Capri in 1 day is with a shared boat tour, which includes a tour of the island and disembarkation in Capri, lunch and swimming. Suggested tours embark just 200 meters away from the B&B.
