Train from Rome to Amalfi Coast (Positano specifically)

Our trip is the end of September 2016 -

We need to get from Rome to Positano and are not interested in renting a car.

What are the options with the least amount of headaches?

Thank you very much!

Train from Rome to Salerno then ferry from Salerno to Positano; least hassle and stress-free way to do this -

Bus or private taxi, you don't have a lot of options in that area. I would be surprised if the ferries were not running.

I also bet the ferries will be running just fine, just wanting to weigh my options. THANKS!

We used Aldiamos Limo and were very pleased.

If you want to have a back-up plan, you can email the driver I always use and see if he can be on standby in the event the ferries are not running. His name is Sergio Rianna and his email is info@taxi5positano.com
