SITA buses leave from Sorrento frequently throughout the day, more often in summer than winter, for the rather thrilling ride around the hairpin turns on the coast road to Positano and Amalfi; a one-way fare is 1.40€. From Amalfi, buses leave for Ravello from the terminal at the waterfront at Piazza Flavio Gioia almost every hour 7am to 10pm, costing 1.10€ one-way. For information, contact SITA (www.sitabus.it; (tel) 081-405145).

The Circumvesuviana railway is convenient, as are ferries to harbors along the coast. Another option is to rent a boat or join a tour group.

You will find taxi stands at the harbor, on Piazza Tasso (both tel. 081-8782204), and in the adjacent village of Sant'Agnello (tel. 081-8781428).
