Drive from Pompei to Sorrento

How difficult is the drive from Pompei to Sorrento? I have zoomed in on Mapquest and it certainly isn't as bad as Sorrento to Amalfi. Has anyone driven on S145 in this direction.

i just did it on a bus tour. It took about 80 minutes because we hit some traffic first getting into Sorrento. Other than that it went pretty smoothly

It normally takes 30 minutes. The drive is just a little winding, bur the road is wide and easy. Only the part from the archaeological site to the next 2 or 3 miles needs your attention. (by the way, make sure your doors are locked at the traffic light a mile away from the site!-the only one the way..."better to be safe than sorry")

Take the train. Under 30 minutes and the station is at the gates into Pompei. Trying to drive in a car is a nightmare. If you are an experienced biker ( and I meen experienced) get yourslf a bike or scooter it's the only way to travel around the Bay of Naples. I've been doing it since 1965. As they say, "When in Naples!"
