Full attention to the road and good judgement of distance required when driving here. Second time for us and it is the last. We were here 10 years ago and the traffic has increased considerably. ALSO, parking is difficult. For us there are nicer places...More

Drive from Sorrento to Positano in August. The coast is beautiful but Positano is tourist hell; absolutely nothing authentic or attractive about it at all.

We had heard this road was spectacular, and went on it during our tour. It was very nice, but the Big Sur drive in California and the Road to Hana in Hawaii are far more impressive.

Costiera Amalfitana was on our bucket list, however, we were a little bit deceived after our trip on a Sunday in July 2018. The road is really-really boosting your adrenaline, not only because of the sights, but also due to the traffic which is incredible,...More

Was able to do large portions of this drive in a rental vehicle and by bus in places. It's better to be a passenger than driving as the driving requires your undivided attention. It's narrow and busy... really busy. We travelled in mid May and...More

Driving from Salerno to Naples along the Amalfi coast was a once in a lifetime experience as although a beautiful coastline, you may only want to drive it once due to the craziness. As many others have commented, you have to drive crazy to join...More

You are much better off driving. If you have never driven that road you should indeed leave extra early. The very narrow road does not leave much room for error and the traffic will slow you down especially on a Saturday... More

Our car was $37 a day plus we spent about $60 on gas. It's a good drive.

Driving is ok but it is very twisty and with coaches and cars parked it can be challenging. We used a driver as it wasn't too expensive and he knew where to take us for the views etc
