Is 13 mins enough to get from Circumvesuviana to Ferry?

Would love to arrive in Positano by Ferry as we are staying at Fornillo so it would be easiest to meet the Le Sirene shuttle than take the bus and have to walk down.

We could make the Circumvesuviana that arrives in Sorrento at 15:17.. could we make the 15:30 Alicost Jet?

Very doubtful - Can you take an earlier Circumvesuviana?

Thanks.. we'll have to weigh it up.. i have been worried about the SITA bus being full, about not knowing where to get off, about the walk down to Fornillo.. all with three kids but getting an earlier Circumvesuviana will leave us with not enough time to see a tiny bit of Naples. I think I might toss our bought Rome to Naples Intercity (36 euros) and buy a new earlier/faster solution to get to Naples earlier so we can get an earlier Circumvesuviana.

If you're going to buy additional train tickets and spend the money anyway for 4 people why not just hire a car service to take you to Positano? That way you can stay in Naples as long as you want.

Price it to see what works best - as you might even stick to the same arrangements, with then a car firm to take you from Sorrento to your accommodation in Positano?

But just checking.... in your "20 questions" thread you'd listed...

"Trenitalia Intercity 1551 from Roma Termini to Napoli Centrale 09:39-11:43"

... and with that you'd easily catch the CV train at 12:11 (or at worst 12:41), to be in Sorrento by 12:47 (or 13:17), with plenty of time to get from the station to port - with either a taxi or:

Change of plans, or crossed-wires somewhere?
