  • Title: Amalfi Coast Guides: Things to do & See.
    Descriptive info: Holiday Tourist Information.. Amalfi Town Guide Information.. A 14th century natural disaster means the Amalfi town you see today is a mere shadow of the glory of this former maritime superpower.. However the combination at one central site of the early 13th century Duomo (cathedral) dedicated to St.. Andrew, the 9th century Basilica del Crocifisso and the 13th century Arabic style Cloister of Paradise are certainly worth a visit.. A pleasant historic town and adjoining marina which offer opportunities for some casual shopping, a meal or just a spot of people watching.. more > >.. Positano Guide Information.. Positano can be reached by car, bus or boat from Capri, Sorrento and Positano, Salerno, Naples and Ischia.. It has a distinctly  ...   musical performances in approriate settings will love Ravello's Festival.. However if you are just there to soak up a little sun, the stunning views and its refined ambience you will not be disappointed.. The drive up from the coast is best described as interesting if you enjoy this type of driving it's great, if you don't then use a coach or taxi.. Praiano Guide Information.. The less well known coastal resorts of Praiano, Minore, Maiori and Cetara all have their own charms and attractions.. Praiano for its central location, quiet charm and coastline.. Minori and Maiori for their beaches and Cetara for a slightly edgier but more Italian feel.. They may also offer a more economical base than their famous neighbours..

If however you prefer to travel independently then it is best to take the train from Sorrento.. You can (as with Pompeii) hire  ...   city and being smaller it can be a lot easier on your feet!.. Pompeii Guide.. If you have not been before Pompeii's sheer scale will surprise you.. Audio guides are available and a personal guide may be able to give you a more entertaining tour.. However plan what you want to see before; consider how long you will be there and what is realistic in the time.. Sorrento can offer a nice variation from the Amalfi coast, it has a more buzzy feeling, particularly in the evening.. There is a wider selection of restaurants and types of bar and plenty of shopping options.. Compared to Positano, in particular, costs can be considerably lower..

  • Title: Amalfi Coast; Weather, Climate & When to Visit.
    Descriptive info: When to visit the Amalfi Coast the Bay of Naples?.. Let's be realistic; the Amalfi Coast has a stunning coastline and a world famous coastal road.. This means that.. during July August driving and parking in or near any of the main venues will be problematic.. However it has an excellent public transport infrastructure on land and by sea.. If you prefer to drive it is not as chaotic as its reputation suggests, there are just coach drivers who drive the road many times daily, keep your wits about you and give them space! Inland roads become far less problematic (the road to Ravello is of course entertaining but ultimately worth it.. If you  ...   in Positano, Ravello and Amalfi driving into the centre of the towns is limited to local residents.. Fortunately to get to Pompeii, Herculaneum and, if you wish, Naples you can.. use the excellent Circumvesuviana.. from Sorrento, the traffic from Sorrento to Naples can be chaotic and makes driving slow.. Likewise the.. ferries, hydrofoils and Metro Del Mare operate services from the beginning or end of April until the beginning or end of October.. Weather Climate on the Amalfi Coast Surroundings..
