The quickest and least complicated way to Amalfi from Napoli is by taking one of the numerous and comfortable ferries that run all year round from the port. If you've arrived by train, the ferry port isn't too far from the station and there are many buses and taxis available at the railway station, should you be carrying lots of luggage.

The ferry ride is a stunning introduction to this coastline and very much recommended. It's sure to put you in the perfect holiday mood, as you glide over turquoise waters past spectacular coves en route to Amalfi.

If you're more suited to train travel or just fancy a different way to arrive, there's also a very reasonably priced regional train service available (Circumvesuviana). This leaves from Napoli Centrale (Piazza Garabaldi) and arrives at Sorrento, for just €3.30. From there you'll need to take the SITA bus along the coast, but it's a memorable journey (you can find the timetable for this in our Useful Links section). The ride takes in all the sights including Positano and Praiano, and all for a very competitive price of €5.50.

If you're travelling to Amalfi by hire car, we have an agreement with a local firm and can offer private parking for your security.
