Info to read to drive in Positano
All the towns of the Amalfi Coast are connected to each other by the State Road 163, surely one of the most beautiful roads in the world. Fifty kilometers of sharp bends overlooking the sea, interspersed with the various villages of the Amalfi Coast, climbed on the rock like nativity scenes.
If you are considering to rent a car be aware of the continuous curves overlooking the sea. Anyway, we recommend extreme prudence in the guide.
Another problem that afflicts the Amalfi Coast is that of parking.
The countries all develop vertically and therefore finding parking in such small spaces can be a serious problem. All the countries of the Coastal area have public or private car parks, but keep in mind that parking for just one hour can cost around 5.00 Euros.
In Positano, you need to leave your car in one of the various parking lots just before the pedestrian area starts: the seats on the street are almost all reserved for residents.
Also, keep in mind that in Positano and in other towns of the Amalfi Coast the historical center is completely pedestrian (in the sense that there are no roads that can be traveled by car).
The various towns of the Amalfi Coast are linked together by Sita buses. The rides are quite frequent even if often the departure and arrival times are not respected because of the traffic.
