Positano to Pompeii/Vesuvius

We'll be staying in Positano for several nights. We're trying to figure out the best way to get to Pompeii, and then maybe on to Vesuvius. I know there are good train connections in Naples or Sorrento, but can't find out about Positano. Any thoughts on the best way to get to Pompeii/Vesuvius?
Thanks, Scott

From Positano, you can just take the SITA bus to Sorrento and take the train from there (there are no direct connections by train or bus from Positano)

There is a bus from Positano to Sorrento,about 1 hour,then take the Circumvesuviano to Pompeii(less than 1 hour).There are no trains in Positano.There are ferrys from positano to Naples,but then you still have to get the Circumvesuviano to pompeii.BE WARNED-the circumvesuviano is cheap,but not comfortable,hot and SKANKY! Watch your belongings,and you will be OK.
