Arrival and transfers
Amalfi Drive: The most spectacular section is between Amalfi and Positano -approximately 40 km. The road is just two cars wide in many sections, sotake care. Passengers may relax and be spellbound. It’s so glorious that youwill want to make the journey in the opposite direction.
Statale 163 (State Highway 163), which runs along the southern side of theSorrentine peninsula as far as Salerno, is better known as the Amalfi Drive.It can be reached from Naples via the A3 Autostrada to Castellammare diStabia, which is on the northern side of the Sorrentine peninsula and islinked to Sorrento farther west by Statale 145. Beyond Sorrento, Statale 145winds westward around the tip of the peninsula and returns eastward alongits southern edge as Statale 163 – the Amalfi Drive. The road is a concreteribbon that rewards visitors with mountain-meets-sea views at every turn,but driving it, as well as the narrow hairpin roads of the Sorrentinepeninsula, can be both a joy and a challenge. Medium-size cars are a goodcompromise. The round reflecting mirrors set along major curves in the roadintend to show if others are coming around a bend; they may help but remainever alert. Honk before curves to let oncoming traffic know about you, andlisten for honks from oncoming curves. Buses and trucks will sometimesrequire you to back up; if there’s a standoff, take it in stride, as it goeson all the time.
