The Amalfi Coast is another of the treasures that the coast of Naples hides: a 50 km strip that constitutes one of the most beautiful areas of Italy. For this reason, since 1997, all the municipalities that make up the coast were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
La Costiera and its towns, Positano, Ravello, Amalfi, Minori, Maiori, Cetara, Furore, Scala, Tramonti, Vietri sul mare… can be discovered in many ways, by renting a car, by public transport or on scheduled excursions.
In high season, they are crammed with vehicles, queues for hours to access the towns, parking problems in the most visited, crowded public transport and it is difficult, expensive and a lot of time is wasted. In addition to the annoyance that can lead to having a single day to visit this area and that can be lost due to poor organization. For this reason, it is highly advisable to travel on a closed tour or by motorcycle. And whatever it is, wear it closed. There are very few motorcycles and as long as you don’t have a reservation they run out. And if you don’t have a scheduled excursion, you have to wait to book and leave… Without a doubt, take everything very well prepared.
It reached its maximum expansion between the end of the 10th century and the beginning of the 11th, at the time of Duke Mansone I. Conquered by the Normans in 1136, the coast fell into misery. The beauty of the coast was rediscovered in the 19th century, during the Grand Tour.
