How to get around Amalfi Coast

Practical guide on ways to move around and discover this beautiful part of Italy

Getting around Ravello is quite easy as it’s almost a pedestrian only town. So, you get around by foot. You only have to familiarize yourself with the map of the town.

by Foot

There are a number of walking trails that you can take to reach the nearby towns: Scala, Amalfi, Atrani, Minori. With the except of Scala, all the other towns are seaside.

You’ll be walking on paths and trails used for hundreds of years by locals as the only means of transportation, long before roads existed on the coast.

All are pretty well marked and while they are not very hard to make, they do require some physical exercise.

If not for getting up to Ravello from one of the seaside towns, walking down to them is quite pleasant and offers spectacular views as you descend towards the sea. You could walk down to Amalfi, let’s say, and come back up with the bus.

Possible routes:

  • Ravello to Amalfi
  • Ravello to Atrani
  • Ravello to Minori
  • Ravello to Scala

Other routes for the entire Amalfi Coast:

  • Minori to Maiori (“Sentiero dei Limoni” or “Path of the Lemons”)
  • Nocelle to Positano
  • Montepertuso to Positano
  • Pogerola to Amalfi

and now “one route to rule them all”:

  • Path of the Gods or Sentiero degli Dei (we recommend to do it starting from Bomerano, an Agerola hamlet, towards Praiano and then Positano)

Obviously, they all can be done in both directions, but easier would be to always take the bus upwards and then walk back on foot.

by Bus

Whenever you want to explore the Amalfi Coast from Ravello, you always have to get to Amalfi first. Amalfi is the central hub of transportation on the coast. Once in Amalfi you can take the next bus to whatever destination you want to explore, be it in the Sorrento direction or Salerno direction. To reach the beautiful Path of the Gods, Sentiero degli Dei in Italian, you must go towards Agerola and get off at Bomerano.

Here you can find the SITA Bus Schedule, as well as ticket prices, tips etc.

Besides the SITA Bus, another option would be the City-Sightseeing buses. While a bit more expensive, they do provide a guaranteed seat on board and provide much better travelling conditions overall, audio commentary (in multiple languages) about the Amalfi Coast and the places the bus goes through. Highly recommended!

by Car

In Sorrento to Salerno direction, this is the order of the towns on the Amalfi Coast:

  • Positano
  • Praiano
  • (junction to Conca dei Marini, Furore and Agerola)
  • Amalfi
  • Atrani
  • (junction to Ravello and Scala)
  • Minori
  • Maiori (junction to Tramonti)
  • Cetara
  • Vietri sul Mare

It’s important to know the order as that would make exploring the towns a bit easier. And a car gives you the freedom to do just that.

Keep in mind that parking is a limited commodity on the Amalfi Coast and can cost up to €5 an hour and even at that price you might not find an empty spot sometimes.

by Moto/Scooter

This option makes navigating the coastal road much easier.

Only recommended to those with serious previous experience in driving motorcycles/scooters. Do not try to learn how to drive a scooter on the Amalfi Coast!

by Taxi/Transfer

Not having to worry about what to do with the car once you arrive at your destination (parking…where…if…any) and actually being able to enjoy the views (NO “sight-seeing” for the driver) is easy to understand why many go for this comfortable option.

by Ferry

Travelling by ferry from one place to another is the most pleasant way of transportation on the Amalfi Coast. Usually much faster since you can’t get into a roadblock on water. You also skip the overcrowded land buses.

You also get to experience the coast from a totally new perspective as well. Whenever possible, always try the ferry option.

For example, if you plan to visit Sorrento one day, you can go there in the morning by bus and return to Amalfi by ferry. Or vice-versa.

Check the ferry schedule for the ferry routes and compare times and prices.

Same advantages as the land taxi. You make your own schedule and someone else has to worry about everything else.
