The coast is quite scenic with mesmerizing blue ocean.We took the 2 hr bus ride from Sorrento to Amalfi and back. If you cant stomach going on twisty roads, then dont take it. Its like 2 hr long roller coaster ride. Both Amalfi and Positana are quite scenic. The small lanes with market in Amalfi is quite beautiful. The views... More

Everyone tells you how. As this road is, and agreed you wouldn't want to drive it straight off the plane from England but having been driving around Europe and more recently Italy it is really no worse than a crowded Italian city. The road is narrow in places and you have to be careful but it's a great drive but... More

Despite the family not getting on. My memory of this place is lovely. I am so happy that I have been here and hope to see it again some day.

ITS A MUST SEE. My husband drove this entire mountain. Although it was scary, it is very doable if you pay attention. It was the most beautiful thing ever. We stopped along the roads and in the small towns...I cant say enough about this. This was one of the highlights of my vacation to Italy.

NEVER AGAIN will i travel these roads. Most parked cars are scratched, marked or dented without side mirrors from the mad / insane drivers that zoom around the tiny roads. A cliff drop of 1,000 plus feet on one side and rock wall on the other. Buses, coaches, motor bikes, cars and tourists all trying to negotiate the very thin... More

A spectacular road. Best taken on a bus to give you the best views. Breathtaking views, definately not for the fainthearted.

Amalfi coast was spectacular. Even from the beginning in Sorrento the landscape is incredible. And the road itself....almost cannot be described in words. All those curves and tight turns...incredible. The most interesting landscapes can be seen from the special prepared spots to pull over and watch the bay and mountain. The cities were a little bit expensive, but taking into... More

We drove on the coast road for the first time on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The road was packed with cars, buses, and an insane amount of motorcycles racing up the middle of the small road, zig zag between cars, buses, and people. It was quite the spectacle. Our second drive was on a rainy Tuesday, from Praiano to Amalfi.... More

Magic. Enchanting romantic and beautifull place for couple. Stairs yes a lot. Slow road and curves yes a lot. But the magic and scenery demands those thing to be beautiful. Otherwise it will be just another town by the see

Thankfully my partner is an excellent driver and enjoys driving and I was fortunate to just be a passenger and sit back, relax and take in the incredible scenery along the Amalfi Coast Road. To be honest though, the road wasn't as difficult as I imagined. Yes, you need some coordination and patience but nobody is going fast, there are... More
