Flying to Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is on the Neapolitan Riviera. To get to the riviera, you need to fly to Naples' Capodichino Airport (www.gesac.it). For information on flights to Naples, and advice on how to get to the city from the airport, see Neapolitan Riviera flights.

Getting to the Amalfi Coast

Bus: From Naples Capodichino Airport you will need to get to Naples Central Station on Piazza Garibaldi to catch the SITA (www.sitabus.it) that runs between Naples and Amalfi from Monday to Saturday. The journey takes around three hours. The ANM C58 local bus (every 30 minutes, stopping, 1.10 euros) or the Alibus (every 30 minutes from 6am to midnight, direct, 3 euros) stop outside the Arrivals Concourse and will take you to Piazza Garibaldi.

Train: The central railway station in Naples is in Piazza Garibaldi. From here you can take the local train, called Circumvesuviana, which runs from a platform on the lower level of the station towards Sorrento. Change at Meta (the stop before Sorrento) and pick up the SITA Sorrento–Positano–Amalfi bus.

Boat: If you're coming from Naples, head for Molo Beverello and take the hydrofoil to Amalfi. The Metro del Mare (www.metrodelmare.net) ferry takes anything from 90 to 120 minutes depending on how many stops it makes en route and costs 15 euros.

Car: Coming from the north of Italy follow directions to Naples. When you reach Caserta Sud, take the A3-Salerno/Reggio Calabria - Penisola Sorrentina. Exit at Vietri sul Mare and follow signs for Amalfi.

Coming from the south and east: On motorway A3 take the junction for Salerno Centro. Turn left and follow signs for Vietri sul Mare and Amalfi.
