Some tips on how to find us and on mobility 25 April 2021 – Posted in: Curiosity
In this article you will find some practical advice for when you come on holiday to Amalfi on mobility and how to find us
Amalfi is located in the province of Salerno, from which it is only a few kilometers away as the crow flies, but due to the only access road that runs along the coast, it is possible to reach us in this way after an hour’s journey!.
Arriving by car in Amalfi is not the best idea, especially for the parking problem, which is quite limited in the city. However, if you choose this option, whether you arrive from Salerno or Sorrento, you will find yourself traveling along the state road 163. This is a panoramic road with extremely suggestive views, but it is a road dug into the mountain, therefore with stretches overhanging the sea and rather narrow carriageways, which will make you jump every time you meet one of the numerous tourist coaches that venture up to here at full speed.
In case you arrive by car or motorbike at the entrance to the city coming from Atrani, dug into the rock, it was opened the Luna Rossa car park, which can hold about a hundred cars. The high demand for parking causes prices to soar and an hour of parking can cost up to 4 euros (2 euros in the low season).
Another car park in Amalfi is the one located in Piazza Flavio Gioia, the most central car park where buses also arrive. Here the cost is 5 euros per hour. Finally, other parking spaces are available, at a cost of 3 euros per hour, at the city port.
However, there is another option, by sea, and you can embark from Sorrento or Salerno and get to the small port of Amalfi. Keep in mind that it is the fastest solution and you can enjoy the panorama of the coast in complete relaxation. Furthermore there is the possibility of using the public transport service by bus, SITA, available all day, allowing you to move between the cities of the coast. Obviously it can happen that in some journeys the buses are crowded with tourists and it is necessary to have a little spirit of adaptation or to be satisfied with doing a good part of the journey on foot.
Arrive in Amalfi in Piazza Flavio Gioia, a small square by the sea from which we can already enjoy the view of the town. In high season, the road is quite busy.
I hope these tips on how to reach us and on mobility will be of help. Especially for some of you who may be reading this article.
Crossing the arch of the “Porta della Marina” and immediately looking to the left, it is possible to see our TABULA store, located in Supportico Marina Piccola, 9. Our little treasure chest. Finally, in just a few steps, we find ourselves in the historic center, with the main square, Piazza del Duomo with its beautiful staircase that leads up to the facade of the cathedral, which dominates from above and leaves anyone who sees it speechless.
