Driving, parking , groceries?

We are renting a villa near S'ant Agata due Golfi. We will have a car to primarily get us there and to our second destination the following week. As we want to visit sites including Ravello, Sorrento, Amalfi, and a few others, wanted to find out if any have easy parking access or whether we should just rely on SITA to get us around.

Also rather than start another topic. Since there are 13 of us staying together, we most likely will be cooking our own meals especially dinners. Recommendations re markets etc to purchase food where we can actually drive and park?

There's no 'easy parking' on the Amalfi coast !!! Stick to the buses, mind you - with 13 of you, you might have to catch two buses ! If you do venture to Ravello by car, you'll have to be prepared to hand your car and keys over to a little man in a flat cap, who will park it for you ... they spend most of the day juggling the cars around so they can get them all in- then when you call back to collect your car, they'll be juggling the cars around to get yours out again ! No neat little spaces each- they're packed in like the proverbial sardines ! It's like those puzzles they used to have where you have to push the little squares around inside a big square, to make the 'words' fit.

Re shopping for food - with thirteen of you to do the shopping, forget the car, just carry a bag each and do it on foot, locally !

I must say, I used to think they left the top ventilation 'hatch' open so they could climb in and out without having to leave enough space to open the doors !

Very funny, ok forget the driving. We will bus it.

But trust me while there are 13 of us we are not all going places together and especially not grocery shopping together.

The place you are renting from - or individual owner - will be able (and should) give you all the information you need to live in the villa including grocery store locations, and other wanted amenities.

I assumed that, but a few were arriving earlier and wanted to go grocery shopping before we checked in.
