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.

Drive from Sorrento to Positano in August. The coast is beautiful but Positano is tourist hell; absolutely nothing authentic or attractive about it at all.

Disappointed with the holiday. The Douro Splendour was advertised as a new ship, our cabin smelled from the bathroom drain. My wife’s GF diet could not be accommodated. Complained most days but staff failed to resolve the issues. A complaint to the Managing director asking...More

You are much better off driving. If you have never driven that road you should indeed leave extra early. The very narrow road does not leave much room for error and the traffic will slow you down especially on a Saturday... More
