Amalfi Coast Travel Tips
Many of the hotels have spectacular ocean views because they are perched atop the sheer cliffs that Amalfi is famous for. Visit from May to October. May, June and September are less crowded, but August can have the best weather.
The nearest airport is Capodichino Airport in Naples. From Naples you can either drive, take the train to Salerno, or ride the bus service which connects all of the various towns in the province. Once you are settled in a hotel, you can take a day trip to the island of Capri. Be sure to check the ferry schedule carefully so you don't miss the last boat off the island. On most days, the latest ferry departs Capri at 8pm. Remember: don't pack too much. A lot of luggage can make ferry trips difficult, especially if you plan on making several stops on your vacation.
During the summer, you can take a ferry or hydrofoil between Amalfi, Capri and Positano. Co-ordinate your arrival with your hotel since they can meet you down by the water taxis, ferry or bus stop. If you prefer it, some hotels can arrange a car service to pick you up at the airport. This is by far the easiest method of travel, but it is also the most expensive. Be sure to check for specials and packages before you book.
