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.

I drove it 3 times during a recent stay the 1st time took 4hours from Sorrento this was on a weekend and coaches simply kill the road they are far to big cannot drive round the bends and cause excessive...

We drove a rental from Pompeii over the mountains and down to Amalfi. The road is terrible, curvy and tight, and if you are the driver you do not get to enjoy the views. As much as I could notice, the buildings (private houses, villas and inns) are not impressive at all, and they are all perched directly above the... More

Lovely coastline to explore, Positano was delightful, but will be overfull in the summer months. Take time to stop and buy the lemon frappe from one of the carts, sip and enjoy the view!

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
