I had planned to hire a car upon arrival. The coach from the airport convinced me that it was simply best to enjoy the scenery and let someone else take the strain of driving me around. The coach drivers were extremely skilful on narrow, constantly turning mountain roads. I think that if you looking not to increase your stress levels,... More

We left Sorrento at 8am so we could drive the Amalfi Coast Road by motorbike while it was cooler and quieter. The scenery is stunning with little villages perched on the edges of the cliffs. The road is very well maintained with good crash barriers and I felt safe riding on them. There are plenty of stops along the way... More

I drove from Positano to Ravello morning (mad with too many coaches). later that evening (7pm during daylight June) after day has stopped for the buses and lorries it was fantastic. Just breathtaking. So the tension... More

To give some idea how chaotic this road is, we caught the bus from Conca-Grotta Smaraldo to Positano, which is 11 kilometres, the bus timetable states it takes 25 minutes. Late morning, in April, NOT peak season, this trip took 55 minutes. This is the same bus which runs between Amalfi and Sorrento, can’t imagine what the ‘1 hour 40... More

I have heard how gorgeous the views are along the Amalfi coast, I can now attest to that! The views, the towns, everywhere you look it's just jaw dropping. I would recommend a small mini van tour instead of a large tour bus. The smaller vehicles can travel all the way to the top where the roads narrow down to... More

We hired a taxi to give us the full tour, which she quoted us €45/hr. Between 4 of us, that was very reasonable, and, knowing that road as well as she obviously did, we stopped at the best viewpoints, and towns along the route, including an hour stop at the stunningly beautiful Positano, and the same again at the bustling...

The drive along the Amalfi coast is a must. It stretches from Salerno through Amalfi to Positano and Sorrento. How you do it depends on your nerves but you must do it. Scooter - you need to have a no fear attitude. By car, if you used to corners and revving in second gear with split second braking, you are... More

We went on a trip from our ship docked at Salerno, 7 of us in large Mercedes Van. Loads of room with big windows to see the spectular view. Make sure you book a vehicle with plenty of space with 'leanover' room. Lots of picturesque places to stop, take in the view, buy local goods, I bought pasta spice kits... More

If in Italy make sure you take the Amafi Coast Road this is a UNESCO's listed world heritage site. Beautiful views, scenery travelling along the edge of the cliffs overlooking the lovely blue Tyrrhenian Sea. Unless you are very keen to drive yourself a whole lot more relaxing on a bus tour as you can really get to see the... More

The Amalfi coast is beautiful, there is no doubt about it. The cliffs are stunning, the sea is very blue and villages are build into the mountains. Very photogenic! The drive however, is horrible. The road is narrow and passing busses or trucks is really challenging. Italian busdrivers are very competent but also completely insane. The roads are often blocked... More
