Arriving in the Amalfi Coast by private driver

Getting to the Amalfi Coast by a private car service

From the Naples airport

You can have a private car service pick you up at the Naples airport and drive you directly to any major Amalfi Coast town:

The price varies widely depending on how far you are going and how many in your party, from as little as $21–$28 per person for 6–8 people to get to Sorrento, and as high as $70–$75 per person for two people to get to a town on the Amalfi Coast itself.

From Rome (hotel or airport)

You can have a shuttle service pick you up at any Rome hotel—or the Rome Fiumicino airport—and drive you directly to Naples, Sorrento, or any major Amalfi Coast town (and vice-versa):

This is not cheap—from $119 per person for 7–8 people, up to $326 per person for a couple—but you are paying for door-to-door service on a three-hour car trip, so it's really not that bad.

How long does the Amalfi Coast take?

Planning your time: Budget at least a day for the Amalfi Coast. Simply to drive the coast without getting out (except to change buses in Amalfi) takes at least five hours—that's three hours touring the coast from Sorrento to Salerno, plus another hour on each end to get to and from those gateway towns.

If you do want to pack it all into a single day—and actually stop and get out in a few towns—it might be best to just book a tour that picks you up at your hotel, gives you time in each of the main Amalfi Coast towns, and returns you to your hotel 6–9 hours later:

  • From Sorrento, group tours start from $40, private drivers from $60, and private tours from $90. » book
  • From Naples, group tours start from $97, private drivers from $55, and private tours from $85. » book

Otherwise, it makes far more sense to spend at least one night on the coast.

If, however, your schedule doesn't have that much leisure time, might I suggest riding the first leg—from Sorrento to Positano to Amalfi—taking a quick spin around Amalfi town, then catching a ferry either back up the coast to Sorrento or over to Capri.
