I'm very early in my research, I guess it all depends if you're flying into Rome or into Naples itself. From Rome it's an hour to 2 hour train ride and from Naples it's just an hour and a half.

Would Salerno be considered a good base location?

It might be. I did some research and from Salerno is easier to go to Vietri or Cetara.

If you can fly directly to Naples or Salerno, it would be much easier. You can then hire a car to get to Positano.

From Positano, you can also take ferry to Capri, Amalfi, etc...

We landed in Rome, took a 2 and a half hour bus to Naples, and another bus to Sorrento. There are also boat services.

We spent a couple nights in Sorrento, a couple nights in Praiano (spectacular view of Positano from our hotel in Praiano) and I think one night in Amalfi. During that time we visited Positano, took the train to see the ruins of Pompeii, ferried to Capri, and visited the gardens of Ravello.

I went to Amalfi Coast. Definitely a good trip, Furore was my favourite spot.

Glad you enjoyed it. The scenery is spectacular. You like Furore more than Positano?

I know people that have been there they say it's really nice (and expensive), but it's mostly a place that couples go to for romance thing or something. My friends that know I'm single told me to wait until I'm older and stick to the places that are better for single guys.

It is better when you are young. There are a lot of steps and walking. The scenery is spectacular whether you are single or not.
