If you are in a car you must drive along here! It can be hell raising at times but so worth it!! The view of the sea and all the little beaches and pastel colour homes make sitting in traffic waiting for the busses trying to turn the tight corners worth it! Be sure to look in the mirrors dotted... More

I've driven in New York City, the Boulevard Périphérique in Paris, Dubai and Malta, each one of those drives were interesting to say the least, but non compare to the coast road of Amalfi. We drove from Sorrento to Solerno during which I noticed the following:- 1. All Italian traffic signs translate to 'Just do what you want!' 2. Any... More

I scootered from Sorrento to Salerno with 3 other friends and it was one of the top 5 days of my life (31 yrs old). My friends and I had never ridden a scooter before so the first few km really got the adrenaline rushing. We were fed straight into a busy roundabout and one friend fell off on the... More

Having driven extensively in Italy, I didnt find the coastal drive particularly hairy - indeed I would say driving around Naples is more dangerous. Yes, the buses swinging around corners were somewhat unnerving, but really the death-road reports on tripadvisor are exaggerated. And we drove in a Mercedes ML - a big car... As long as you are a proficient... More

For anyone who loves driving, this road is a must. It twists and turns back and forth for around 30 miles and I had a huge grin all the way. Even with it being the summer, we didn't encounter too much traffic, and the views are spectacular.

Must do as the scenery is worth every attraction you have ever paid for...be sure to stop wherever the small in.ets occur for photo shot but as mentioned before no photo can capture the view

Seriously book a tour and don't attempt driving, it's easier to soak up the astonishing views and not spend time watching the twisting roads on the passenger seat, let someone else drive. The views were breathtaking and there are many stops along the way to take amazing pictures even if you have no talent in taking pictures (me).

The Amalfi coast is south and east of the town of Sorrento, and the first area you encounter that is directly on the Mediterranean. Starting in Sorrento, you travel along the cliff side road and switchbacks for about 30-45 minutes to the coast/resort town of Positano. See lots of small bays and coves, with yachts buoyed small and large. Beautiful... More

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
