We are arriving in Positano by Hydrofoil on 5 th July. Will we easily find porters or do we need to pre book this service ? Does anyone know the cost involved ? Thanks
In high season, I would suggest contacting your lodging - hotel or B&B - and ask them if they are able to arrange this for you. I don't know what the current cost per bag - a number of years ago it was 5 euros per bag but given how everything else has gone up in price, I would be surprised if that didn't as well.
Thanks MomCat . We are renting a villa so we need to arrange transport ourselves
Check this out:
You can book their services in advance: recommend sending them a fax, indicating date, time, what, from where and to where, and then reconfirming with a phone call to make sure they got it.

There are usually some of these motorized porters down by the harbor also.
Last time I arrived in Positano by water (coming from Capri) there were porters waiting to meet the jetcat. It cost us 8 euro per bag and the bag was waiting for us at our very high up pensione when we got there.
Truth is, it's way better to travel with a bag you can manage. Last time I was in Positano was with a carry-on that I could lift up the stairs on my own. Try and travel light - it will be way more convenient.
Great to have up to date info on this. I have never personally used them because I always pack so light and have just a carry on (smallish) and it is easy to carry.
Good luck and have fun!
Thank you for all the advice . Porter service sounds like a good option . Can't imagine I can convince the family to take a small bag for 24 days of travel !
