We will be visiting the Amalfi Coast this November after a few days in Rome. (November 2nd -6th) We have rented an Airbnb for 5 nights in Sorrento as we have heard most things stay open then.
Our big question is how to get around to the various other towns since the ferries are not running that time of year. (Except for to Carpi, of course).
Would it be advisable to rent a car during this time of year? Or would you take a bus?
My husband and I have done so in other countries and survived! (We're from the US and handled driving in Australia and the UK even on the "other" side of the road) Our concern is not so much the driving, but whether we will be able to park when we get to our destinations. (Positano, Revello, Amalfi....)
The other couple we are traveling with think we should take busses between the towns. But I am not thrilled about this. I am concerned we will spend a lot of time waiting for busses and be beholden to the set schedules. I know they are nervous about the driving so we have said we don't mind doing all of it and letting them be the passengers.
I also feel like we may miss a lot without the "freedom".
Does anyone have experience traveling the Amalfi Coast this time of year? If so, what were your experiences like?
Would it be better to rent a car or take a bus? (I don't think hiring a private driver is an option for us as I have heard it is VERY expensive)
Thank you in advance!
