A lot of people ask us about how long they should spend on the Amalfi Coast.

We think that 4-5 days is the minimum you should consider spending in the area and if you can get the time off, we would even recommend a full week and here’s why:

1) It takes about 3 hours to get down to the Amalfi Coast from Rome and once there, there is so very much to see in the area including: Pompeii & Heraculaneum, Mt. Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia, Sorrento and of course the Amalfi Coast itself which is home to some of the most beautiful sea-side towns in Italy including Positano, Atrani, Conca dei Marini, Ravello and many, many others.

2) You should plan for a full day to see the Amalfi Coast itslef, a full day for Capri, a full day for Pompeii and Naples.

3) We recommend seeing the coast by both boat and by car, but we do not recommend driving on the Amalfi Coast.  We recommend you either take a day-tour with a small group, or a private tour with a driver, which we think is the best experience because they can get into the places and into towns which the  bigger buses can’t go.  You can see our private tour of the Amalfi Coast here:


If you have 2 + people it ends up being very cost-effective and the experience is unparalleled.

There is so very much to see in this area of Italy and there is so much to enjoy.  Many people fly through here and don’t really get a chance to enjoy things at leisure, however we encourage you to spend as much time as you can in the area, since it is one of our favourite areas in Italy, we are sure that it may be yours as well.
