Dear balmainboy,

If you're planning your trip for April or May, indeed you'll be able to take a ferry from Sorrento to Positano and another one from Positano to Salerno Porto Turistico(closer to Centro/Rental Car Places/Salerno FS Train Station) or Salerno Molo Manfredi:




Also, I'm pretty sure that you can take a boat from Salerno to Messina. I think the boats leave the port at the end of Via Ligea near the Vietri Sul Mare border.


Otherwise, there are at least three rental car agencies on or near Corso Garibaldi right across the street from the Salerno FS Train Station.

Also, if you're arriving by SITA bus or boat in Positano, you can take a taxi or use that porter service recommended in the forum to help you up to your hotel.

Buon Viaggio...
