Amalfi is located in the middle of the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy.
Tourism is of prime importance in the area, and is the major employer. Consequently, almost everyone you meet will be friendly,
obliging, speak very good English and will do their best to help you
The public transport along the Amalfi Coast is cheap and fairly efficient.
A company called SITA runs buses along the coast, from Salerno to Amalfi,
from Amalfi to Sorrento, and from Amalfi to Ravello. Other small buses provide transport within the towns.
The main bus terminal is in Amalfi Piazza Flavio Gioia less about 3.2 Km from your apartment;all the buses arrive
and depart from here, connecting with Positano, Sorrento, Ravello, Salerno, Naples; all buses to and from Amalfi,
Positano and Sorrento stop at your rented property.
Ferries connect the principal resorts of the Amalfi Coast area, and can be much quicker than buses.
Travelmar (tel. +39 089 872950) run connections between Salerno, Minori, Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento.
Salerno to Amalfi takes 35 minutes, and costs €4, with eight departures daily in each direction.
Although the bus trip along the road is dramatic, it can leave you feeling quite queasy and I find the boat
is a much more comfortable option.
If you are fond of archaeology, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum are easily within reach, between 1 to 2 hours driving distance.
