      Transportation from Praiano to Florence

      by Jepstein517 Online Now Jun 24, 2014 at 6:34 AM

      Having been helped so much getting from Rome to Praiano by bus (thanks so much!), we now will need to get from Praiano to Florence next Monday by 5 p.m. Are there any buses that could do the trick? We hesitate to take trains b/c we have 4 pieces of luggage (2 large, 2 small) and are concerned about getting them on and storing them on the train. I guess we will if there is no option, but you guys are so knowledgeable, I'm hoping someone knows a way by bus.

      Thanks, Judi

      We are two Aussie couples looking for self catering apartment somewhere on or near the Amalfi Coast in late April 2015. We have looked at several net sites but find many are already booked out in our price range ($1200 AU per week). We have also read that perhaps Salerno is a good base to stay and do day trips. We hope to see Pompeii, Capri, Ischia. Does anyone have a suggested itinerary? Any does or dont's? Highlights? Recommended places to visit? To eat?

      Hi, we need to get from Bari to Amalfi after ...arriving Bari from overnight ferry from Dubrovnik...... Then after staying 5 days in Amalfi we need to get from Amalfi to Cinqe terre.. August 2014. I cannot see that a bus runs on Sundays from Bari to Naples to get to Amalfi...any suggestions? Could we get a train from Bari to say Sorrento or Salerno? I cannot see online that this may be possible....should we hire a car and just drive from Bari to Salerno, then ferry to Amalfi .The trip from Amalfi to cinque terre..any ideas for the fastest and easiest way to get there in one day... I want to book the fast train, but unsure of what time I could book, as not sure how long it will take on ferry from Amalfi to Naples, Of all the arrangements I have made, this part of the journey has baffled me the most! Appreciate your thoughts. many thanks. Anna

    • What is the Best way to see the Amalfi Coastal Cities?

      by Lary1047 Online Now Mar 12, 2014 at 9:33 AM

      Hello everyone,

      We are staying in Sorrento for 4 days this coming June. We would like to travel down the Amalfi coast and visit the different cities as we have seen the beautiful pictures and scenery that have been taken. Also we would be interested in visiting Capri on another day. Can anyone suggest the best way to see these 2 areas. We have seen several one day tours available, or would it be to our advantage to visit the Amalfi coastal cities by using the bus and walking the cities at our pace rather than stuck in a van for 8 hours?

      Up for suggestions! Thanks for everyone’s responses.

    • Amalfi coast - hotel parking

      by Hassenygard Online Now Apr 17, 2013 at 6:24 AM

      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,

      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?

    • Sudden change of plans - need advice for 5 days in Naples/Amalfi

      by smigor Online Now Sep 28, 2011 at 3:58 AM

      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!

      Hi Everyone,
      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!
