Amalfi Coast Travel Guide

Italy, Amalfi Guide (B): Amalfi Coast Travel Guide

The Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coastline in southern Italy between Sorrento and Salerno, about 60 miles from Naples. The towns dotted among the cliffs, bays and beaches are renowned for their lemon terraces (and therefore limoncello), and extraordinary beauty.

We were in the area for five nights to take in the scenery, swim at the beaches and sample all of the local delicacies. We also managed to hike between and walk around some of the larger towns.

We arrived into Naples via an easyjet flight from Venice; Naples being the closest major city to our destination; San Lazzaro. The 55 minute, €48.50 per person flight (incl. luggage) seemed the better option over the five hour train journey available at a comparable price. However when you add in airport transfer times and cost, and waiting for the flight, the train might have ended up the better option. Train timetables and tickets are available from Trenitalia.

Low cost bus services in Italy are provided by Flixbus, who also have taken control of Megabus. Tickets can be as low as €1 if you book well in advance, but even if you book on the day of travel you can get a great deal. A Flixbus journey from Venice to Naples will cost around €16, but will take an average of 12 hours to get there. No thanks. We used both services happily on other parts of our Italy trip. ......
