how to get from Sorrento to Metaponto Italy

Will be arriving in Rome on 8/10 - 3 ladies and will want to stay in Rome about 2 days then go to Sorrento for another 2-3 days and then on down to Metaponto for a Wedding on 8/15. I know how to take a train from Rome to Naples and then a regional train from Naples to Sorrento. How to get to Metaponto from Sorrento... I tried to see if there was a connection from Naples to Metaponto and I can not find it on the train sites. Am I missing something? Surely you can get from Naples to Metaponto. Please advise. I am not oppose to taking a nice bus.
thanks, Jeannette

You don't need to backtrack to Napoli to go from Sorrento to Metaponto. Take a SITA bus from Sorrento to Amalfi and another SITA bus from Amalfi to Salerno. Take either a train or a bus from Salerno to Metaponto. The timetables on the Trenitalia site list both train times and bus times for Salerno-Metaponto.
