Amalfi in detail

Flights & getting there

Bus

Amalfi's bus station in Piazza Flavio Gioia is little more than a car park, but it is the main transport nexus on the coast.

SITA Sud runs up to 27 buses daily to Ravello (€1.30, 25 minutes). Eastbound, it runs up to 20 buses daily to Salerno (€2.40, 1¼ hours) via Maiori (20 minutes). Westbound, it runs up to 25 buses daily to Positano (€2, 40 minutes) via Praiano (€1.30, 25 minutes). Many continue to Sorrento (€2.90, 1¾ hours).

You can buy tickets from the tabacchi (tobacconist) on the corner of Piazza Flavio Gioia and Via Duca Mansone I (the side street that leads to Piazza del Duomo).

Car & Motorcycle

Driving from the north, exit the A3 autostrada at Vietri sul Mare and follow the SS163. From the south, leave the A3 at Salerno and head for Vietri sul Mare and the SS163.

Parking

Parking is a problem in Amalfi, although there are some parking places on Piazza Flavio Gioia near the ferry terminal (€3 per hour), as well as at the underground car park Garage Luna Rossa (€2 to €4 per hour). The latter is accessed from the main seafront road between Amalfi and Atrani. From the car park, a pedestrian tunnel leads directly into the town.

Boat

The ferry terminal is a simple affair with several ticket offices located a short hop from the bus station on the seafront.

TraVelMar Runs a reliable April to October water taxi to/from Positano (€8, 25 minutes, daily), Minori (€3, 10 minutes, seven daily), Cetara (€5, 40 minutes, six daily) and Salerno (€8, 35 minutes, up to 12 daily).

Alilauro Runs ferries to Sorrento (€21, one hour, two daily) via Positano, and to Capri (€24, 1¼ hours, one daily) from around April to October.
