Great trip. Take the train from Rome, to Salerno, walk out of the station and turn left and buy a bus ticket, to Amalfi. Get on the bus (the stop is right there), make sure you sit on the left hand side, so you can see the scenery. Go see St. Andrews crush and sit in the square in Amalfi... More

This road really lived up to all the accolades others have given it. Stunning views of steep hills/cliffs with quaint and colorful homes and villas nestled among them. Speeds on this very curvy road averaged about 30 kph, if you don't count the motorcycles zipping in and out. Keep an eye out for little miniature house models someone had crafted... More

Riding the Coast Road each day is an xperience unto it own. Beautiful and shall we say exhilarating, lol. There are so many small gems tucked away on this highway between the towns do that it would take an entire season to truly explore them all. Breathtaking scenery unlike any other place that we've been in our 30+ years of... More

Off the A3 near Salerno to Amalfi, the road is a nightmare, potential health hazard if you have a bad heart. Twisting, turning, with cars and scooters parked wherever there is a bit of space, the narrow road is not for the fainthearted.

Took a bus tour along the coast. The views were absolutely amazing. The cliffs, water, towns and home were a wonderful sight.

We drove this winding, tight-curve Amalfi coast road (more like a sidewalk in places due to the narrowness of the road) on a Sunday and it was a heart-attack experience. The locals drive too fast on their motor scooters/bikes, zipping in between the vehicles on the road; they pass you on the curves in their big cars and in no-passing... More

Amazing drive and landscapes! As we stayed in a villa up in Furore, between Positano and Amalfi, we had to drive daily on the steep hills and very tight bends. My husband got used with it relatively quick, but we knew how are the italian drivers always in a rush so we`ve let them space to overtake us... the only... More

The Amalfi coast drive is stunningly scenic. Each town is as charmingly beautiful as the next one. Ravello is not to be missed. The translucent waters and gorgeous coastline provide photo opportunities at every bend in the road. A day well spent.

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
