Train: The Frecciarossa is the main train station and means of travel in Italy. I highly recommend buying your ticket a few weeks before hand online so you do not have to waste any time at the terminal with confusion or delays. In Italy it is much cheaper than other countries to take the train, one rule of advice, book the faster train! The Frecciargento is the high-speed train it is the most expensive option, but also has first & second class options which offer wifi if you need to get work done. We made the mistake of trying to save a few dollars and took a slower train and it was the longest ride of our lives! If you’re taking a train during rush hour, it will be quite crowded and you may have trouble finding a seat, so plan accordingly.
The main train station in Rome is Roma Termini. To get to Amalfi, you'll first need to catch a Trenitalia train from here to Napoli Centrale, the main station in Naples. Trains run directly between the two stations. We stayed near a local bus stop named Cavour and was only a short walk to the main station, was in a super upbeat area of town with bars and restaurants, and two blocks from the colosseum. From Naples you will have to hop on another train system or hire a driver to get to Positano. If you have an extra day, we suggest staying and enjoying the sites of Sorrento which is the last stop that the train goes to. Positano can only be accessed by ferry or car.
Car: If you are able, a car might be your best bet. You are not on any one elses time schedule and have the freedom to hit the road and explore new areas bus/train would not give you access too. From Rome, take the A1 Autostrada (toll road) to Naples, then the A3 Autostrada.
To get to Sorrento, take exit Castellammare di Stabia and take the SP 145. We highly recommend eating at a restaurant called Zio Sam's. The food portions are massssive ( we got a a calzone, calimari, shrimp pasta, and drinks for 35 euro) and the view looks over the entire city and beach. To get to Positano, follow directions toward Sorrento, then take the SS 163 (Via Nastro Azzurro) to Positano. To get to Amalfi or villages near Amalfi, stay on the A3 and exit at Vietri Sul Mare. I would give you advice on how to drive on the roads out there, but quite frankly Im not sure how anyone does it.
Ferry: Our friends took a ferry down and said it was beautiful. The fare for taking a ferry to Positano is extremely reasonable as well, I believe 13-15 euro per person.
