1. Re: Amalfi coast

June is high season in Italy and most advise NOT to try and drive along the AC. The road is VERY narrow and VERY crooked, and the traffic is heavy and laden with SITA buses and large tour buses. It’s impossible to enjoy the view during the drive because the driver must pay closer attention to the road.

There’s only 1 road along the Amalfi Coast, SR 163.

If you’re already in Naples it would be much better to take the ferry from Naples to either Positano or Amalfi and make that your base. From there you can take ferries to Capri or some other villages on the AC. SITA buses also run up and down the coast, but they are often very crowded,

There are no ferries from Naples to the Amalfi Coast villages; there is from Naples to Sorrento but not to Positano or Amalfi.
