All the towns of the Coast are connected to each other by the state road 163 called ” l’ Amalfitana “, certainly one of the most beautiful roads in the world. Fifty kilometers of bends and sharp turns on the sea, at intervals with the various villages of the Amalfi Coast, climbing on the rock like many small nativity scenes. Beware of traffic, which during the summer and weekends often stops due to the large volume of tourist cars and buses.
The 163 “Amalfitana” road has only one narrow lane per direction of traffic and is often busy. Considering the continuous curves overlooking the sea, we recommend extreme caution in driving. Another problem affecting the Amalfi Coast is parking. The villages all develop vertically, like small nativity scenes clinging to the rock, and therefore finding parking in such a small space can be a serious problem. All the towns along the coast have public or private car parks, but keep in mind that parking for only one hour can cost up to 5 euros. Please also keep in mind that in Positano and other towns on the Amalfi Coast the historic centre is often closed to traffic, especially in summer.
MOTORBIKE AND SCOOTER
The scooter and motorbike are certainly the most pleasant means to go around the Amalfi Coast in total freedom, without worrying about traffic and parking. You can rent a scooter in the major coastal towns. We recommend that you rent a scooter on the Amalfi Coast only if you already have a good experience on two wheels and are not worried about the kilometres of bends.
The main Municipalities of the Amalfi Coast are connected to each other by the SITA bus service. The runs are numerous and are scheduled so as to be spaced only a few hours apart from each other. Despite this, however, it is quite difficult to establish departure and arrival times for buses along the coast, especially in summer, when traffic makes it impossible to predict. The bus service, on the other hand, connects all the municipalities of the Amalfi Coast very well both between each other and with Naples and Salerno.
The best way to reach the coastal resorts is to follow the so-called “Sea routes”. The ferries regularly connect Amalfi with Naples and Salerno and for some years now, with the opening of Metrò del Mare, you can also reach the Cilento and the Domitian coast. Moreover, always by ferry and leaving from Amalfi, you can reach both Capri and Ischia with direct lines. For the summer months there is also a local connection between Amalfi and the nearby Maiori and Minori.
SINGLE COAST TICKET
To make it easier for those who want to travel to the Amalfi Coast by public transport, the Single Coast ticket was born, which allows you to travel on trains and buses of SITA and Cirumvesuviana, with a single ticket. The Single Coast Ticket allows the combined use of means of transport and the different types of tickets, offer the opportunity to buy the title best suited to your needs. For relatively short trips Single Coast is available in the version of 45 minutes (€ 2.00) and 90 minutes (€ 3.00). If, on the other hand, you need to use public transport for one or more days, there are Single Coast tickets for 24 hours (€ 6.00) and Single Coast Ticket for 3 days (€ 15.00). The last two types of tickets give access to a fun ride on the Amalfi-Ravello route, or Amalfi-Minori-Maiori, on board the City Sightseeing, the double-decker tourist bus that moves along the Amalfi Coast.
