We drive from ravello along the coast , first stop is amalfi town, lots of tourist, full of shops restaurants, typical tourist spot, then we move onto positano, similar to amalfi, however, this sector is the most beautiful coast line in amalfi coast, the road is going up and down, all the time you have sea view in front of...

This is a beautiful place to visit, it felt like I was in a dream. The beautiful villages hugging the hillside, the small winding roadways. We had just finished the "Walk of the Gods" and were debating whether to walk the remaining 1500 steps down to Positano or catch a bus, I'm glad we chose the bus. Sitting in the... More

..but the views are spectacular. Went with wife , needed her to check passenger side space from wall to car frequently as i drive on other side in uk. Parking is a nightmare but we found valet parking as we got into positano. Some kimikaze bikers and drivers but after a while when you recalibrate things become easier. Road from... More

We are currently on a European bus tour and leaving Sorrento this morning. We had a day trip bus ride to Positano. On the way their we encountered at least 3 near misses with buses, motor bikes and pedestrians. On our return trip the inevitable happened. 3 motor bikes had a major collision right next to our bus - 2... More

This is an amazing ride along the coast. I suggest taking the bus, its inexpensive and you can just relax and enjoy the views. In season you can get a hopper pass. Be sure to have a nice lunch on the water!

The roads on the Amalfi coast are not as difficult as described by many. You must be aware, that you have to wait and let a bus or another large vehicle pass.

Just recovered from doing this - glad I wasn't driving! Amazing views going anti-clockwise. Set off at 10.30 and shd have set off sooner. Glad to be behind a coach which seemed to plough all other traffic out of the way for us! A few hair-raising moments as we entered tunnels behind it and passed other traffic. Definitely not helped...

The Amalfi coast drive is a must do if you are visiting the area. The route is winding, picturesque and at times absolutely stunning. Personally, I wouldn't drive it myself as you would miss so much. We took an organised minibus tour which visited Positano, Amalfi, ravello, and another little village in the hills. We also had the opportunity to... More

You have to experience the Amalfi coast drive at least once in your life. It's not as breathtaking as shown on The Italian Job but is an interesting drive with good views at times. Always glad to get to our destination.
