They are very helpful and have always the latest information available.


By bus: A very good and frequent bus service makes it easy to visit all the main attractions, towns and villages along the coast.The tickets are not sold in the bus. You have to buy them before you enter the bus, normally in a bar or shop close to the bus stop.


By car: If you plan to use a car on the Amalfitana, we recommend that you rent a rather small one. This will enable you to master the many curves just like an Italian. If you want to go to Marina di Praia you can either walk or take the car. There is a parking area close to the sea. You can also go to Marina di Furore by car. But you must park on the left side of the street as close as possible to the rock. Only a few slots are available.


By Ship: The island of Capri is only accessible by ship. Ships leave from Amalfi, Positano and Marina di Praia to Capri the entire year. Departures are almost every hour. Starting from May till October, you also can use the ship to explore the Amalfi coast - which is convenient and you see the impressive coast line from the sea. Other options include renting a motor or sailing boat. For some boats no license is needed!
