How to get to Casa Buonocore

Positano is a magical place. The town's amazing location, clinging to the rocks, right in the middle of the Amalfi Coast, is one of the reasons it's such a sought-after destination - and one of the reasons it's so difficult to reach!

The narrow coastal road which links Positano with the rest of Italy is one of the most scenic in the world. It's also one of the most tortuous, which is why we suggest you take a note of our tried and tested tips for a stress free journey to Casa Buonocore - before you depart!

Transfers from the airport or station

If you want to reach Positano from Naples airport, you have three options:

Why we suggest you choose a private transfer

Whilst the road between Naples and Positano is just 60 kilometers long, at least half of those kilometers is made up of curves and hair-raising, hair-pin bends! The road is narrow and, in the evenings, not particularly well lit. You'll be better off enlisting the services of an expert local driver - especially when you're at the end of a long and tiring journey.

We use only the most professional and experienced of qualified drivers for our guests' transfers from the airport to Casa Buonocore.
