It’s really easy. We just had to go to the train station, buy the tickets at the little store (7,20E/ea for 24hr) and stand in the line across the street. Fortunately the 10:30am bus had not left yet but unfortunately we were at the end of the line & we were not sure we would make it on the bus. We were the last 2 to make it on the bus :-). Everyone behind us had to wait another 30 min for the next bus.
None of the pictures give justice to what we saw. This must be the most scenic views in the world. 1:30hr trip of which 1hr is riding on very narrow winding roads on top of cliffs with views of villages & the sea.
I’m surprised I didn’t feel sick as the bus constantly stops & goes with sudden jerks. I think I was too busy “ooing & aahing” at the amazing views. We frequently had to stop so cars or buses would have to back up & maneuver around us or us around them as you can see in the videos. About ½ way through Tony was able to get a seat.
We spent a few hours in Amalfi & had a terrific lunch.
It’s hard to imagine how they built right on the cliffs as you can see on the pictures. It’s beautiful & very impressive.
We had a great dinner in Sorrento at Taverna Allegra.
We have noticed in Italy that some places welcome you very warmly & some others are not shy to show that they are not thrilled that you’re there or that they couldn’t care less whether you’re there or not.
First hiccup of our trip. We found out when we got back to our Hotel that there will be a strike for the train between Sorrento & Naples on Friday. That’s the day we need to get to Naples to catch our train to Florence :-(. Thankfully we’ll have tomorrow to figure out a solution.
