TI ( near track 23),and ATM (Banco di Napoli near track 24),a bookstore(La feltrinelli,near track 24),and baggage check( deposito bagagli,near track 5).Pay WC are down the stairs acrosss from track 13.Shops and eateries are concentrated in the under ground level ( IMPORTANT FOR YOU) The Sorrento trains generally depart from platform 3, to access this binary there are no escalators or elevators. Attention to the message on the display that announce the incoming train to be sure to take the train to Sorrento, or else you risk finding yourself in Sarno! ( it's a single train track, look at the display) At Sorrento station you will find instead the elevator. The station is at the center of Sorrento.Once you arrive at the Circumvesuviana station in Sorrento, you will need to take the Sita bus which runs between the Sorrentine peninsula and the Amalfi Coast.Sit on the right hand side of the bus to get the best view! Sita buses depart from in front of Sorrento's train station hourly ,(marked Amalfi via Positano).and travel stop first in Positano ( Chiesa Nuova) and then at all Amalfi Coast Towns(Positano in 50 minutes;Amalfi in another 50 minutes).To reach Ravello ( the hill town beyond Amalfi )or Salerno ( at the far end of the coast),you'll transfer in Amalfi; Ticket prices with trip lenght (one-way to Positano -euro 1,80,to Amalfi -euro 2,70).for Ravello,you'll change in Amalfi and pay an extra euro 1,20).All ridesare covered by the 24-hour Costiera Sita Sud pass ( euro 8) You can buy bus tickets at most newsstand and, Tabacchi Stores, unless you already hold a valid ticket from your earlier trip. Tickets CANNOT be purchased on board the bus. The road is a series of stomach-churning curves: take all the precautions necessary if you suffer from car sickness. Stop in Positano: I recommend the second stop - CHIESA NUOVA near the Bar Internazionale.In Italian you would ask: Per piacere,puo' farci scendere al Bar Internazionale,a Positano? (Please,can you let us get off at Bar Internazionale ,in Positano?)
Keep in mind that the timetables of the sita buses is not respected due to road traffic and the narrow streets, especially on weekends In summer. So simply wait until it arrives, without checking the time. This also applies to the terminus, where the bus can arrive late due to the previous route.
A lot of guests make the mistake on arrival in positano to get off the Sita bus at the SPONDA stop, this is actually a bit of a mistake given the stop is 1 km from Casa Perla. It is necessary to get off at the first stop in Positano / Chiesa Nuova near the Bar Internazionale

The Valle delle Ferriere is a place unique to this world.Departure can be either from Pontone or AmalfI .Duration: 3 - 4 hrs Kilometers: 6 Difficulty: easy
(Pontone is near Ravello).The route commences in Pontone, a district of Scala, some 225 meters above sea level. To reach Pontone you can take the Sita bus which runs between Positano-Amalfi, Ravello and Scala.Not all buses stop at Pontone: but you can easily reach Pontone on foot from Ravello or from Scala by way of a pleasant little lane.From here it descends towards Amalfi through a wood of tall chestnut trees and rare, long leaved ferns. The ruins of the medieval foundries, which gave the valley its name, can still be seen.The valley is also known as the Vallone dei Mulini and, the final stage of the walk, takes visitors past a number of water powered mills which once the produced Amalfi's famous paper.
From the main piazza in Pontone, take the mule path which passes in front of the Trattoria Antico Borgo. Once past an archway, to the left youll come to a junction where, at Christmas time, locals stage an impressive nativity scene.Immediately after this, to the left, a long flight of steps lead down, towards Amalfi. Dont take these, but go towards the valley, descend a few steps and then take the short uphill path amidst the lemon trees and vineyards.At the top of the hill, a path leads to an aqueduct, beyond which, after a few meters, take the downwards path to the left.
Youll soon come to the first foundry and the Canneto stream. The path leads all the way down to Amalfi following the stream and passing by the ruins of the foundries and mills.Before commencing the descent, you can make a detour to reach the Riserva Integrale, a habitat for rare fauna and flora The only remaining examples of Woodwardia radicon, a fern which dates back to before the ice age, survive here thanks to the unique microclimate.
The detour is brief but demanding, and should be avoided if you are not particularly fit or are walking with small children.
In order to reach the Reserve, you will need to cross a stream, (a tree trunk serves as makeshift bridge) and follow the little uphill path which leads to the fences around the Reserve.At this stage, turn back and take the no.25 route which traces the left bank of the river and in circa 45 minutes leads to the center of Amalfi.Once in Amalfi, check out the Paper Museum where you can visit an old 13th century paper factory. The museum library houses more than 3.000 volumes highlighting the history of paper making, an ancient art for which Amalfi is renowned.
Money Italy uses the euro currency:To convert prices in euros to dollars,add about 10 percent.The standard way for travelers to get euros is to withdraw money from ATMs ( which locals call a bancomat) using a debit or credit card,ideally with a Visa or MasterCard log.Before departing,call your bank or credit-card company:Confirm that your cards(s) will work overseas,ask about international transaction fees,and alert themthat you'll be making withdrawals in Europe.Also ask for the Pin number for your credit card in case it'll help you use Europe's chip-and PIN payament machines.
Dealing with CHIP AND PIN Much of Europe ( including Italy) is adopting a chip -and Pin system for credit cards,and some merchants rely on it exclusively.European chip-and -Pin cards are embedded with an electronic chip,in addition to the magnetic stripe used on your American -style cards.This means that your credit(and debit)card might no work at payment machines,such at those at train and subway stations,toll roads,parking garages,luggage lockers and gas pumps.Major US banks are chip-and-signature cards,for which your signature (not your PIN) verifies your identity.In Europe,these cards should work for live transactions and at most payment machines,but probabily won't work for offline transactions such as at unattended gas pumps.If a payment machine won't take your card,look for a machine that takes cash or see if there's a cashier nearby who can manually process your transaction.Often the easiest solution is to pay for your purchases with cash you've withdrawn from an ATM using your debit card(Europe's ATMs still accept magnetic -stripe cards).

If an ATM offers to lock in or guarantee your conversion rate,choose proceded without conversion.Other prompts might state,You can be charged in dollars:Press YES for dollars,NO for Euros.Always choose the local currency.
