    All things considered I really do think busses

    Our bus parked

    The bus is the best way to get there I am sure. The road is so narrow and difficult to negotiate I think that you need an experienced Italian driver to do this. The other, not so fun aspect of course is one based purely on my survival instinct. It goes like this.........if the bus has one wheel either front or back over the edge there is really little chance of it going the whole way........but put a car in the same position?

    The Devil Coast Drive!

    You might think from home that the beautiful winding roads of the picturesque Amalfi would be a lovely place for a romantic drive.

    Think again. This spawn of Satan road is the most evil thing I encountered on my entire trip. Unless you are Schumacher or Montoya, dont even think about driving on this thing. First, it does as many twists and turns as a ballerina on cocaine. Second the streets are narrow and they have decided its a good spot to park cars along side the road to make it more narrow. People dont exactly obey the whole "you stay on your side of the road" motto. All of Italy is a "dive at your own risk", but this adds new meaning to it.

    Bud for sight seeing

    the easiest way to view the beautiful cliff and ocean os to take the bus. You don't need to worry about the traffic situation and don't be afraid to get lost. All you need to do is find a window seat and enjoy the amazing scenery from Sorrento- pocitano-amalfi.

    Boat or Bus... if you haven't car!!

    sailing...

    I think of the best way to go around Costiera Amalfitana and the nice city is going there by boat.
    You can see all coast and have a nice relax.

    Going by bus... with a lot of turn and a lot of people inside... it's not so nice!!

    Bus Terminal

    bus station Amalfi

    The scenic way to get to Amalfi by car is to leave the A3 motorway (autostrada) in Salerno and drive along the S163 (Costiera Amalfitana).

    Amalfi is a bus terminal for the costiera (on the front of Amalfi) and as such is a good base for exploring the area by local transport. Buses go in one direction to Atrani, Minori, Maori and down to Salerno, whilst in the other direction buses travel to Conca dei Marini, Positano and Sorrento.
    Tickets must be purchased in advance and validated on the bus. Tickets are purchase for travel up to a certain time..for example a 1 euro ticket enables you to travel on a bus anywhere within I hour - so the further you go the better the value.

    Driving la Costa Amalfitana

    Unless you're:
    A) a Formula 1 driver
    B) the owner of a high-performance vehicle
    C) the rider of a motorini/motorcycle or
    D) all of the above...
    I would avoid the drive around the Amalfi Coast.

    Large cars simply do not fit within most of the towns' narrow hair-pinned streets. Park your car (especially if it's large) in Sorrento or Salerno and take the bus into the other Amalfi Coast towns. This is the only way to keep your holiday free of stress and your car free of tickets (as parking is cliff-hanging and non-existent).

    Horse and Carriage

    horse and cart

    Horse and carriage rides as in most tourists areas are available - at an inflated cost no doubt. Really though, Amalfi is mot such a big place so I doubt in the ride would take you far.
