The costiera amalfitana is a place where u will fall in love for.
It’s not easy to describe, u have to live this experience for better understanding!!
The first time me ad Erika went there, we tought about to marry in Ravello 🙂
What is costiera amalfitana?
It’s 50km of road on the sea crossing beatiful cities like Cetara Sul Mare, Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, and much, much more. It begins from Positano and it extends up to Vietri Sul Mare city.
Where is it?
It is located in Campania region:
How can I go there?
You can reach the costiera in different ways:
By flight: landing to Naples Capodichino airport, you can go to Sorrento city taking the Curreri bus or taking the Circumvesuviana subway. From Sorrento station you can take SITA autobus, it will cross all the cities beginning from Positano
By train: u must go to Central Naples station, then you can take a train for Salerno. Lastly, from Salerno u can take a ferry boat for Amalfi.
By car: It’s the common way, it is 3-3,5 hours away from Rome
By moto: nice choice!!
From June to August I suggest to rent a scooter for the following reasons:
City parking ( Positano haves low number of parkings and they are very very expensive – up to 5 euro per hour )
Seaside parking ( some beach parking is hard to deal with a car )
If you can’t rent a scooter or you have kids, don’t worry, you can use the car or you can use the SITA bus.
I went four times in Costiera Amalfitana and each time is like the first time! Here you have plenty of things to do:
1) Visit the cities
2) Go to beatifule beaches ( the best ones are a little bit hidden, you must know them )
3) Take a ferry boat and to visit other isles ( Ischia, Capri )
4) Eat the best food on the world
5) Trekking ( you MUST at least walk some mile on “path of Gods” – “sentiero degli Dei” in italian )
6) Enjoy the people, they are kind with tourists
7) Take a taste of local wine
In four times I saw a lot of things, I’m so happy to share the pictures!!
This is Positano, where u can find beatiful beaches, shopping stores and much much more. You can take “Mulini Square” as interest point.

This is my favourite town, Ravello. I completely falled in love for it.
Ravello is one of the highest town in Costiera Amalfitana. You must absolutely visit: the center, Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone. If you like the music, you can’t miss the Ravello Festival.

Ravello also has a small beach, is called “Castiglione a Ravello”
