My first journey along the Amalfi Coast Road was by car which makes for an exciting journey, but the main problem is stopping and parking which is extremely difficult, so whilst I enjoyed the journey it was not as fulfilling as I hoped, so... I decided to take the bus from Sorrento to Amalfi. The bus is very cheap only... More

The road is very scenic and from the bus there is less time to admire there views ,its better to walk a part of the area on a footpath.Both Amalfi and Positano merit attention as well as the smaller villages.

This is a spectacular drive along the Italian coast. If you have the opportunity to it, take it. Not for people who have a fear of or don't like heights as this road has 1190 hairpin turns over about a 50 km distance (or so I was told). Each time the road turns a new vista opens up, each one...

A real highlight of our trip, stunning scenery. We travelled by bus to Amalfi, scary but exciting at the same time. Then on the way back we stopped off at Positana, for a dip in the sea before catching the ferry back to Sorrento, a lovely journey sat on the top deck, (we even got the chance to swim from... More

A friend had been telling us about this drive along the coast for years, so we had to see for ourselves when we finally got to visit Italy. Wow! The views as you drive down the coast are spectacular. The "roller coaster road," to quote our bus tour guide, was as exciting as the views were magnificent. Though you better... More

If you are on the Sorrentine Peninsula, then it is a must that you do the Amalfi Coast Road, the views are absolutely stunning, how they managed to build the roads, well I hope they all got medals. If, like my wife, you don't like heights, then make sure that you sit in the vehicle away from the sea side... More

Amalfi drive was so beautiful that I actually put down my camera to just stare in fascinated awe! The photos couldn't do it justice so I stopped photographing and just soaked it all in! The sea is beautiful and clear! The vegetation is gorgeous!! This is a view not to be missed! In the early part of the morning when... More

Wow, you can look at pictures of The Amalfi Coast all day, but nothing is the same until you see it for yourself!! Unbelievable scenery that is so amazing it even captured both my boys attention so much so that it may have rated over The Colosseum in Rome which was their number one thing to see on vacation!!

But the bus to Amalfi didn't make it. Our driver abruptly stopped just outside of Positano saying "Change Bus", turned around and headed back telling us another would be along in 20 minutes. It was 85 minutes and there was nothing scenic about where we were standing. Nowhere to buy a drink or food.

The SITA bus is cheap and frequent, but if you're caught with standing room only it's long, winding and extremely uncomfortable. Several American student groups got on. Standing room only. And then locals were also jostling to get on,.obviously not wanting to wait for the next bus. It was like a stifling, hot cattle market in the aisle as the... More
