We visited the Amalfi Coast as part of our 3 week voyage to Italy last October. We rented a car in from the RR station office of Hertz in Naples and one way to wide for Amalfi (we originally ordered a Fiat 500 L and got a large Volvo SUV). I always wanted to drive the twisty roads of Amalfi,... More

My husband loves driving trips and the Amalfi Coast drive was in his bucket list. This IS NOT for the faint of heart!!!! The views are amazing, and the curves are even more..... At one point we came upon a full size bus that was taking up the entire road - which is not too wide to begin with -... More

This steep, extremely serpentine cliff side road is best experienced while letting someone else do the driving. We concur with other reviewers that to maximize your views, it is good to get a "sea side" seat on the route heading from Sorrento to Positano. Each new curve exposes a new perspective, and having crystal clear blue skies certainly helps the... More

To me, this is a must do! We got this idea from a Rick Steves book, so take a peak at the book or online for further details. The bus ride has two things going for it: beautiful scenery, and the best drivers in the world! Sure, you can drive it, but if you do, take a scooter so you... More

The Amalfi coast road regularly rates as one of THE drives you have to do. We loved driving it and it's not as scary as many people suggest - but if you don't have a car or the road makes you nervous you don't have to miss out. We hired scooters to zoom up and down - about €35 per... More

Definitely not an easy drive, even for an experienced Italian driver (me !)... Narrow, curves, villages and the other drivers Nonetheless, it's one of the most spectacular views in the world So, drive safely and enjoy the ride... Only alternative is to stay he and watch pictures :-)

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
