The Amalfi Coast lies on the south side of the Sorrento Peninsula.
It is one of the most delightful seaside destinations in Campania and claims to be Europe’s most beautiful stretch of coast; its corniche road winding around the towering cliffs that slip almost sheer into the sea. There is no fixed season to visit the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento Peninsula.
While the twisty Amalfi Coast Road is justifiably famous, my favorite way to get around is on the ferry. You get to avoid the traffic and all those curves while at the same time getting a first class view of the coastline from the sea.

They also feature a service that connects Maiori and Minori with Amalfi. The company Gescab offers ferry service connecting Amalfi and Positano from Capri. Sometimes during peak summer season there is ferry service to the Amalfi Coast from Sorrento.
