Driving on the Amalfi Coast is not for the faint of heart. It’s more for the thrill-seeking personality. There are wonderful local buses which can transport you between the charming little towns. I have been on them. They can be crowded and carsick-inducing, and I’m just impatient enough to not want to operate on their schedule so, the car it is.
The drive is best done with two people. The passenger becomes adept at quickly rolling down the window and pulling in the side mirror moments before it scrapes a rocky outcropping or another car half parked in the lane of traffic. The passenger’s job is also to disembark and stop traffic so the driver can maneuver into an impossible parking spot whereby the passenger then uses ridiculous hand signals to “help” the driver.
And once you arrive at each little town, there is so much to see. Even if you are not there during beach-going season, there are still lots of things to do. There are beautiful churches, adorable shops, little museums, pretty piazzas, and miles of potential walking to admire the view.
