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.

We had Positano Drivers take us by private car from Naples to Positano and enjoyed the experience in comfort as well as the amazing views. We could stop at key vantage points and take postcard perfect photos. The road is very winding so if you get car sick I recommend sitting in the front seat.

Overall I would say that the road is not really worth the amount of stress I went through on that drive and I had an Italian driver. My lord, buses, trucks anything with wheels would drive down this road, on occasion to pass each other people would pull their mirrors in to fit through gaps. But, somehow that seem to... More

I have just driven from Sorrento to Amalfi using the awful coastal road. Bear in mind this is June and not the high season, it was appalling and not in the least bit fun. I dread to think what it must be like in the high season of July and August. Yes, the views are stunning. Not much use when... More

We just returned from Italy and used Aldo Limos. A great experience all around and what a way to spend my birthday touring the Amalfi coast. We were fortunate enough to have Aldo himself be our tour guide. A wonderfully warm knowledgable tour guide who provided a wonderful day of touring, feasting and education about the area. We met the... More

We took a private tour from Naples. Post card views with every bend. Positano, Sorrento, Amalfi were great. Nice stops along the way for photo taking, sipping on fresh limon hello or shopping local produce. The roads get very narrow at places so best to use a local seasoned guide and enjoy the scenary.

8 of us took a private excursion from a cruise stop, and visited Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento....with this amazing ride in between! A couple of us have taken the road to Hana on Maui and were comparing the two experiences........obviously different...but at the same time similar emotion and amazement!
