Looking forward to hearing about your elopement and destination wedding ideas. Cheers!
Via train: The Frecciarossa is the main train station and how to get around in Italy. I highly recommend buying your ticket a few weeks in advance online so you do not have to waste any time at the terminal wasting time or money as it can jump in price. Make sure to book the faster train! The Frecciargento is the high-speed train and is the most expensive option, but also has first & second class options offering wifi if you need to get work done and highly reccomend. 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.
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 instead of bus/train which these transportation methods would'nt not give you access too. From Rome, take the A1 Autostrada which is the toll road into Naples, then to the A3.
To get to Sorrento, take Castellammare di Stabia which is the desired exit 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. 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.
