Naples, Taxi to Positano? Other suggestions.

But I would again caution that this is Italy which means these fares may or may not be honored. Make sure you negotiate your fare before you get in the taxi.
Thanks for the reply, guess we will inquire as we exit the ship.
Aldo himself picked us up as we disembarked from the ship, and took us on a wonderful tour of the Amalfi Coast, including Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and a visit to Herculaneum. He speaks excellent English (having lived outside of Italy for a few years) as he says do all his drivers. He had a thorough knowledge of the area, was very informative, and was also very flexible as to our wishes.
His prices are very reasonable for a tour of this calibre ie 380 Euros total for all 6 of us for a tour that started at 830am until 500pm. If you are only a couple traveling alone,I would recommend you find others on the Cruise Critic board who would share the cost of this really worthwhile tour.
If you manage to find the SITA bus terminal there is also an almost direct bus (8:45 & 9:10) from Port of Naples to Positano. Takes 2 hrs o/w. There is also frequent bus service between Positano & Sorrento. http://www.sitabus.it/sitabus/campan...A/QUADROXV.pdfBeware of that particular bus route. It only operates on working days (not on weekends or holidays) and there is no return bus until late in the afternoon (too late to get back to the port).
