Driving from Amalfi to Sicily on the west coast?

by luckysnap

I appreciate any advice. How long will it take? Are there any good places that are must sees? Or should I take the Autostrade directly to Sicily? Or should I just concentrate on the coast road and skip Sicily? I have 7 days for the round trip.
Thanks,
Dan

Re: Driving from Amalfi to Sicily on the west coast?

by domenicococozza

Hi Dan, following on from Lazy's info, the distance from Positano to Reggio Calabria is approx 500 kms, the bulk of which is on one autostrada(A3).
You should be able to cover this easily in one day, then take a fery across to Messina in Sicily. You will be hard pushed to take in everything there is to see in Sicily in the remaining time you have, but you could concentrate on the east coast - Taormina/Mount Etna/Acireale/Syracusa, returning to Messina across the Madonie Mountains via Cefalu.
Have a great time - you'll love Sicily

Travel Tips for Amalfi

Festival of St Andrew

by sandysmith

Every year on the 27th June Amalfitans remember the event of how St Andrew saved Amalfi from the menace of the terrible pirate Kaien-Din , "The Redbeard". A big procession and fireworks festival takes place in the streets...our visit was just a week too early for this but preparations were well underway for the festivities with the banners going up in the streets of Amalfi.

Inside the mill

by sandysmith

Inside the mill was better than the museum - the machinery for the paper making called “ingegni”, where all here and in working order. We saw the paper soaked in the trough and then pressed out. Some of the paper even had real flowers embedded in it. This old paper could be bought here too if you wished to have a momento of old hand made Amalfi paper.

Grotto Smerelda

by Jetgirly

In Italian, grotto means cave. The Grotto Smerelda is The Emerald Cave, where the water shimmers an eerie greenish-blue and stalactites and stalagmites grow around you. It is a quick boat trip (15 minutes or so) from the port at Amalfi, but it can also be reached by land. Entrance to the grotto is EUR 5 and includes a brief boat trip in Italian (bad English upon request). Oarsmen expect a tip.

Recommended for people with kids and/or nothing better to do.

beautiful buildings of Amalfi

by angiebabe

The Duomo in town is from the 9th century while the Chiostro del Paradiso with its beautiful facade is from the 13th century and its recorded that here the maritime code originated in 1131 making it the worlds oldest - therefore this town has been around and been significant for several centuries.

With the historical effects on the town through the years you can roam around and see a variety of styles and presentations. This is what i love also about travelling - the architecture and design of the people who live there in past, present and future potential tense.

St Andrews Cathedral bell tower.

by K.Knight

Built between 1180-1276 the St Andrews Cathedral bell tower has been renovated on numerous occasions over the years and has been lucky to keep its original look and design. Based on styles from the Norman and arabic periods it has double and triple light windows, topped with majolica domes and is a beautiful sight from most vantage points around the town. This photograph was taken on the beach.
