My husband drove the Amalfi cost early June, it;s not as difficult as we expected (but I guess it gets bad in July/Aug). It's so beautiful, especially on the way from Sorrento to Positano there is one place where we can stop for great pictures...More

I can’t imagine what this road must be like in high season. We enjoyed driving it in November as it was fairly quiet. Parking was the main problem as it cost about 5 euros an hour.

Really really nice but some drivers do not hesitate to take some risks on this road, moreover the bus and the caravan create often some traffic jams. The coast itself is really nice but I suggest to move by boat.

Driving is ok but it is very twisty and with coaches and cars parked it can be challenging. We used a driver as it wasn't too expensive and he knew where to take us for the views etc
