Getting there & away
Bus services along the coast are year-round and efficient. SITA (199 73 07 49; www.sita-on-line.it in Italian) operates a service along the SS163 between Sorrento and Salerno (€2.90), with buses leaving about every hour. Buses also connect Rome and the Amalfi Coast, terminating in Salerno.
If driving from the north, exit the A3 autostrada at Vietri sul Mare and follow the SS163 along the coast. From the south leave the A3 at Salerno and head for Vietri sul Mare and the SS163.
Boat services to the Amalfi Coast towns are generally limited to the period between April and October. From Naples, Metrò del Mare (199 44 66 44; www.metrodelmare.com) runs summer-only services to Sorrento (€4.50), Positano (€9), Amalfi (€10) and Salerno (€10.50).
