The simplest and cheapest way to move between villages along this coast is the bus: SITA offers regular service from Positano and its hub in Amalfi. In Positano, the orange town buses make the loop of Viale Pasitea, Via Cristoforo Colombo, and Via G. Marconi (SS 163), stopping several times along the way. They run every half-hour, saving your tired knees from some of the town's endless steps. You can purchase the 1.60€ ticket onboard.

Ferries are a convenient alternative to slogging along the local road. You can also hire a boat, with or without a skipper, to take you to secluded beaches. A boat service links Marina Grande to Fornillo during the summer, with departures every half-hour (about 5€).

To reach other towns and villages, hiring a taxi (tel. 089-875541) or a car service with a chauffeur makes sense, especially if you plan to stay here only a day or two; plus, an experienced local driver can double as a guide.

Renting a car is an option we don't recommend, especially in summer, but you can do so from major national and international companies as well as from Rent a Car, Viale Pasitea 74 (tel. 089-812033 or 333-3310224), or one of the companies in Sorrento. Rent a Car also rents out motor scooters for 60€ per day.
