How to get there

Amalfi Drive: The most spectacular section is between Amalfi and Positano - approximately 40 km. The road is just two cars wide in many sections, so take care. Passengers may relax and be spellbound. It's so glorious that you will want to make the journey in the opposite direction.

Statale 163 (State Highway 163), which runs along the southern side of the Sorrentine peninsula as far as Salerno, is better known as the Amalfi Drive. It can be reached from Naples via the A3 Autostrada to Castellammare di Stabia, which is on the northern side of the Sorrentine peninsula and is linked to Sorrento farther west by Statale 145. Beyond Sorrento, Statale 145 winds westward around the tip of the peninsula and returns eastward along its southern edge as Statale 163 - the Amalfi Drive. The road is a concrete ribbon that rewards visitors with mountain-meets-sea views at every turn, but driving it, as well as the narrow hairpin roads of the Sorrentine peninsula, can be both a joy and a challenge. Medium-size cars are a good compromise. The round reflecting mirrors set along major curves in the road intend to show if others are coming around a bend; they may help but remain ever alert. Honk before curves to let oncoming traffic know about you, and listen for honks from oncoming curves. Buses and trucks will sometimes require you to back up; if there's a standoff, take it in stride, as it goes on all the time.

For these circumstances we would like to recommend you that the best way to get to Praiano from Naples is by pre-arranged taxi. We can arrange for a luxurious and comfortable Mercedes to meet you at the Naples airport or train station and bring you directly to us, for a one way fare of Euro 120,00 for up to 3 persons (90' min. route driving). With this method you will be met at either the Naples airport or railway station (Piazza Garibaldi) by a driver holding a sign with your name. Then you will ride comfortably to Praiano enjoying the beautiful scenery without worries about directions or charges.
