1. Re: Best choice for travel from Positano to Cortona

I have gone Cortona to Positano via train to Naples/Sorrento, then ferry. You could do the reverse of that - Positano to Sorrento by ferry, Sorrento to Naples via train, train to Rome/Cortona.

Many seem to do the Salerno route - I have never done that but it sounds easier to me and I would do this next time personally. Positano to Salerno by boat, then train from Salerno to Rome and train on to Cortona (2 possible train stations for Cortona - Terontola or Camucia).

To get all the way up to the town center [Piazza de la Republica] a taxi costs €12. Recommend the Hotel italia.
