Taking a taxi from Positano to Naples Train Station is a stress free experience, where you can truly enjoy the ride and the scenery.
Our time in Positano went by too quickly and after spending 4 nights, it was time to go to our final destination, Rome. We read about the different ways to get to Naples on Trip Advisor and settled on taking a taxi. We used Positano Taxi for this service and could not have been more satisfied.
Our experience with the bus system convinced us that we made the right decision on using a taxi. Especially the day we went to Amalfi. We were returning to Positano on the 5 o’clock bus and had been waiting since 4. There was only one more bus running that day. When the bus finally arrived, everyone converged to get on the bus, pushing and shoving. It did not matter that people had been waiting an hour for the bus. Luckily for us the bus stopped almost in front of where we were standing, so were able to get on the bus, but we still experienced people trying to push their way ahead of us. We got two seat towards the back of the bus. By the time the bus left, people were standing in the aisles. When the bus stopped in Positano, I was the last person to get off the bus. When I reached the front of the bus, people had started making their way on the bus not waiting for everyone to get off. This made it extremely difficult for me to get off the bus. I was going against the crowd, being pushed back on the bus. I finally started pushing my way out. When I got off, it was even worse outside, as these people were determined to get on that bus. It was not an experience I would want to do again. This turned me off on the bus system. There are not enough buses running to handle the large number of people that ride the buses. Forget about it if you have luggage. Even though it was more expensive to take the taxi, the time and convenience was well worth it after our encounter using the buses.
We contacted several companies before our trip. We ended up selecting Positano Taxi. Positano Taxi was very responsive to all our emails and was very easy to deal with.
The day Positano Taxi was to pick us up, we walked out to the road to meet them. I am sure that if we would have waited they would have walked to the hotel to get us, but we were anxious to be on our way. We made one last trip walking these steps to get to the road.
We only waited a couple of minutes before our taxi came. Our pickup time was 7:30 a.m. They arrived early, allowing us to get on the road by 7:20 a.m.
Positano Taxi, our luxurious ride to Naples train station.
It was an enjoyable hour and twenty minute ride to the train station. We were able to admire the beautiful coastline with virtually no traffic this early in the morning. Our driver was pleasant, giving us insight into the Italian culture, answering our many questions about the area. Before we knew it, we had arrived at Naples train station. She directed us on where to go to catch the train. I would highly recommend using Positano Taxi if you are ever in the area. It was a very nice stress free ride, where you can enjoy looking at the coastline from the comfort of a car, instead of a crowded bus.
