If your used to driving on the one - lane mountain roads of the Rockies, then you'll feel right at home on the Amalfi coast - with the added bonus of views to die for. Just don't take your eyes off the road for too long - pull over and enjoy a refreshing lemon grinata from one of the many... More

We took the bus from Sorrento to Positano and then on to Amalfi . Sit on the right The scenery is stunning . The road between Positano and Amalfi as it winds along the edge the cliffs can barely accommodate to two cars side by side let alone the buses . Glad I wasnt't driving ! The skill of the... More

The scenic route from Salerno to Sorrento through the Amalfi coastline was stunning and very picturesque - a once in a lifetime journey. The coastal road is very narrow and caused mayhem a few times en route. Salerno was a great place to visit, then we headed to Amalfi (a beautiful resort) and stayed there for a bit, then headed...

Whilst on holiday in Sorrento, staying at the Continental, our little party of two couples decided to go on a hotel organised Amalfi Drive Tour. Our hotel was the first pick-up point for the 21 seater bus, so we had the pick of the seats, and, naturally went for the ones with the best view, the front and right side.... More

As a frequent solo traveler, I believe that most every trip is possible with adequate preparation, good supplies and a little help from kind locals. I've met my Waterloo on the Amalfi Coast, one of the most beautiful if not the best scenic view in the world I've traveled. For context, I live in Minnesota and drive fearlessly through snow...

For me, once in a lifetime. I did not want to miss this experience, it is one of those things you need to do while you are here, but once was enough for me. Only went on the bus from Amalfi to Positano, but we experienced the full sensation of driving the coast road. Tight spaces, beautiful views, backing up... More

We tackled the amalfi coast 4 days ago and it was certainly eventful and a must do but a good understanding of what you are in for is helpful beside the scenery. The buses get crammed packed and probably 20 people are expected to stand. Get to the bus stop early or wait for the next bus to arrive. If... More

The scenes are mesmerising, the drivers are absolutely off their heads. The cliffs are steep and there is so much to take in at once, surrounded by beauty all the way. Postiano is a must see, it's unlike any other place. However, people overtake huge coaches on blind bends, it makes you cringe how risky it is at times.
