Naples is the major transport to get to the Amalfi coast. You can hire a car and drive, although the zigzag roads to the coast can leave you feeling dizzy. You could hire a taxi to take you straight from the airport. Depending on traffic, the journey can take up to 2 hours.
It is interesting reading the reviews that others have written. I guess this city needs to grow on you. I found it to be dirty, crowded and filled with crazy drivers. I admit that the food was pretty great, but getting ripped off by a B&B and then fending off a pickpocket put a bit of a damper on our excursion.
I only spent three nights in Naples and it was not nearly enough. The city seems to provoke extreme reactions from people. Some find it chaotic and dirty, but I found it characterful and authentic. I am definitely planning to return to explore more.
An authentic, gritty, and beautiful city that should be included on any trip to Italy. It took me a few time going to Italy before I reached Naples, but it is one of the highlights, much different feeling than the cities in the north.
