Once you arrive in glorious Amalfi, getting around is remarkably easy. The SITA bus ( operates all along the Amalfi Coast and is the easiest way of getting anywhere, whether it's to Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano, Ravello or back to Naples. Buses are frequent, running every 15 minutes at peak times and between 30 and 60 minutes at other times. Another interesting option is using Unico Campania ( offering combination tickets with multiple companies.


There is a small local bus that runs down Via Cristoforo Colombo to the main square and back up again. This is ideal for those with luggage, although most others will enjoy the walk down (but perhaps not the walk back up so much).


Within Amalfi itself no bus is needed as everything is easily walkable.


There are three local buses that run intermittently down to Marina Grande (the smaller of the two ports), Marina Piccola (where the ferries come in) and out to Piano. All three stop at Piazza Tasso. Unico Campania tickets are valid in Sorrento.


If you`re travelling to Capri early or late in the season it`s a good idea to travel from Naples or Sorrento as the boats from Amalfi and Positano are less certain to be running. Once you`re on the island there is a bus service that covers the whole island but has its own ticketing (you can`t use your Unico Campania tickets here). The funicular railway runs from the Marina Grande ferry port (where you arrive) up to the La Piazzetta (Piazza Umberto). From here you can catch a bus to Anacapri. There is also a taxi service which runs from Piazza Umberto. There are set prices to popular destinations.

On Foot

As unlikely as it might seem, there is also much that you can do here on foot. The SS 163 road has only been around since 1840. Until then, trails and footpaths were the only ways to get around (other than by sea). These paths are still used for bringing animals to pasture and are well kept and well marked. Visitors are highly advised to purchase the excellent map published by the C.A.I. Club Alpino Italiano Monti Lattari Penisola Sorrentina, Costiera Amalfitana: Carta dei sentieri sold for about 8€ at the best newsstands and bookstores in Ravello, Amalfi, and Tramonti.
