I keep hearing about a Ferry from Amalfi Town to Naples run by Metro Del Mar but have yet been able to find a timetable, pricing or anything. Can someone please point me to a website that can confirm that this Ferry does exist and will be running in October?
The metrodelmar.com website is down.
I'm asking for October 1st. Helping my sister plan her honeymoon.
What Amalfi area would be good to relax after the busy previous week in northern Italy while enjoying a busy town, a beach and nice restaurants?
Hi do you guys think it's worth taking a day trip from Rome to Amalfi??? Heading there early morning by bus and heading back to Rome at night!
Hi! I need to decide whether to depend on public transportation only or to rent a car. Should we take a car or train/bus will do to travel around Naples and in the Amalfi coast?
am looking for the name of a store where i purchased something last week. was on the main street where all the shops are. past church, another little plaza was enclosed on the right side. there were some inside shops. am looking for one in particular called i believe "abliagmento almalfi" Not sure about name. burgundy shopping bag. sells jeans, calvin klein clothes both for men and women. Hope you can help me out
Of course I understand that parking is difficult and the Amalfi coast roads are narrow etc. But - since we also have intended to spend some time outside this area, for example visiting famous gardens and visiting some vineyards - a car seems to be an interesting option...
So - do any of you have ideas of where would be good places to stay a) in Sorrento b) on the Amalfi coast. The intention of ours has been to spend 4-5 days divided into two stays at different sites.
Nice hotels with neighborhoods where one can find restaurants, perhaps avoiding 10.000 steep steps every single days. Parking would be a good option, ie. to be able to be able to use the car whenever you need and have the parking spot when you arrive back from an excursion etc.
Or - would you still recommend skipping the car, using the bus system and fully enjoy the car-free life and skipping all the vine tastings & garden visits on the way to/from Rome?
Hello! We have 5 days based just outside of Amalfi to celebrate our 25th anniversary! We want to see area but also really want to relax-3 kids, two dogs at home!! Definitely want to go to Capri and can swing a boat for a day. Do not think we want to rent a car. Best ideas to see this incredible gift while still not going too hard? We are going mid May.
Hello everybody, Next month we will spend a week in the south of Italy; our itinerary includes a drive from Amalfi coast to Lecce. Now could anybody recommend some scenic roads around the area? The roads don't have to be short. They must be beautiful. Thanks in advance!
I am planning to rent this place in early October 2013: La Loggia: Apartment Rental in Minori facing the beach.
I will book thru homeaway.co.uk/p428765?uni_i... and was wondering if anyone has any experience with this place and booking online.
I am a little nervous as they want a deposit via bank transfer or Paypal only!
I am new at this and need some advice!!! My bank discouraged me from using a bank transfer as my personal info is revealed to the other party.
I want to do this the most secure way possible.
Thank you all!
Last year I paid a (very quick!) visit to Amalfi
Whilst there, I noticed a red minibus tour that went from Amalfi to Ravello but didn't have the time to go. I can't remember the name of it and hope that someone can help? The minibus was red, and I thought it was city sightseeing tours but there's nothing on their website. I'm thinking they perhaps did offer it last year but have withdrawn it this year?
Hope someone maybe can help?
Can any one tell me about this hotel? We're going to Amalfi in Mid-June and want to stay in this hotel. Any information can be provided is much appreciated.
Hi folks just wondering if anyone had some input on where to stay in Amalfi Coast mid july for 5 days. Amalfi city ,Positano or Ravello
I'm landing in Naples and need to get to Amalfi. I'd really appreciate any practical advice please! Is there a bus terminal near the airport? Does the bus run from the airport to Amalfi?
A grateful solo traveller!
We have just been advised that our flight from Bari to Canada has been cancelled and we will now be flying out of Naples instead. So, we need to scramble and make last minute travel plans. We thought we would take advantage of the fact that we are now in the Naples area and need advice. First of all, what is the best way to get from Bari to Naples/Amalfi? From what we have read, it looks like a car is not really necessary for Amalfi and driving in Naples is not really recommended.
Once we are in the area, we would like to select one or two bases from which to tour the area. The only place we have been in the past is Pompeii so anything else is fair game. We will be there the first week of November so both weather and availability are considerations - for instance, I assume that most of the coastal ferries will not be operating at this time of year. Options that I have considered for a base are Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento or even Capri.Please help - the airline wants us to make a quick decision re our new flight home so we need to determine land arrangements asap. Thanks for your help!
We are traveleling mid to late October. Where do we fly into and how would we get to
Le sirenuse in Positano?
After 4 days there where shall we go for the next 4 days easily?
We are headed to the Amalfi Coast in September and would like to stay in a nice village that has access to some of the touristic places but isn't overtaken by tourism. We don't want a big city with hustle and bustle--just a few weeks to set up someplace as temporary locals. Is this possible to find such a village along this popular tourist route or did we miss it by a decade or two? We may do a few day trips but are more interested in just renting a home for a few weeks and truly relaxing in a beautiful place. Any recommendations? Thanks!
My wife and I will be staying in Ravello for 3 days in late September and would like to know if Scooters are a viable option for getting around. Is it safe with all the aggressive drivers? Do you need a motorcycle licence? What are the rates like? Which companies do you recommend?
Hi. Actually that title is a bit misleading. My wife and I have been to Italy twice before (Rome and north) and this time we will definitely go to the Amalfi Coast (summer of 2012). Here's my problem: I love small towns and thought for months that we'd fly to Naples, stay in some Amalfi Coast town for 3 or 4 days, then head off to Abruzzo for a longer time, maybe week or so. But now I'm thinking that the guide books skip over Abruzzo for a reason and that maybe we should reverse the plan. That is, stay in Amalfi for a week and give Abruzzo the shorter time. Does anyone have comments on both plans? I would especially like to hear from people who've been to both areas. Grazie mille!
we are planning to visit Amalfi coast in July ,could anyone suggest how it will be if we stay in Praiano.i don't know a much about the destination. we would prefer a place with nice surroundings.
Hi , Hope someone can help please . My wife and I need atransfer from Naples airport to Minori. We arrive in naples at 11.00 am and need to get to Minori by bus taxi, or train - either way in good time but not get rippped off . Hope you can help . Many thanks in advance- we good meet up for a cost of a drink on me
Could you suggest me a nice budget accomodation in Amalfi?
I will be traveling there soon and have two options of tours:
-Travel along the south seeing Amalfi and Positano
-Travel along the north seeing Sorrento and Capri
Any recommendations? I have been there before and did the second option and wasn't especially impressed (except for Blue Grotto). Did I miss out on the best of the Amalfi coast by not going along the south coast with Amalfi and Positano?
I am dying to go here this summer but after reading posts it just seems really hard work to navigate the roads etc etc. I won't be driving ha! and I don't really like heights....is this a good idea? Can you get taxis easily? Where (which town) would be the best place to stay....we want somewhere chic and a luxury hotel.....that's not too high up. Any ideas greatly appreciated.
We will be on the Amalfi Coast several times this year with children and grandchildren. What open air restaurants overlooking the water and coast could you recommend?
We would like to take a bus from Sorrento to Ravelo, then head back, stopping at Amalfi and Positano on the way back to Sorrento. We're interested in spending a little time in each city.
Where do we get the bus in Sorrento? Do we need separate tickets for each leg of the trip? Are we trying to do too much in one day?
.....someone tell me there is a way to get to the Amalfi Coast that does not involve that crazy looking road!!! Or must I take lots of valium???
We are a 50 yr old couple visiting Italy for the first time. Are renting a car. 1 week in Tuscany, 1 week Cinque Terre, and finally 1 week in either Lago di Como or Amalfi coast.
I am an artist gathering reference material, in addition to the holiday feeling.
With that final week still open, I am hoping to find the best way to enjoy the Amalfi coast.
-For a couple of our vintage, what is the best and easiest way to enjoy this area? Should we park the car and use public transport?
-Do we need reservations this time of year?
-Is the driving as frenetic as some people describe? (My driving skills in Canada are decent.)
-It seems more likely to get good weather in Amalfi the 3rd week of October than in the Como area. Is this correct?
Will be in Sorrento the first week in Octboer and and just read a small article in our local paper on the Emerald Grotto. Is this worth seeing and does the time of year I am going affect seeing this. Am planning on Capri and the Blue Grotto also. Thank you for any info.
Hi! My husband and I are celebrating out 1 year wedding anniversary in Positano in mid October. We mostly want to relax but definitely want to spend some time boating and seeing Capri. Are we missing anything absolutely spectacular outside of Positano and Capri? Will we have time to relax and enjoy ourselves?
