Take Ischia for example. Whilst it may be an island, it certainly doesn’t lack in choices for transport. Buses, road taxis and water taxis are the ways to get around here and each one can take you different places throughout the island.
You can also choose to travel around the island by car, and this is thought to be one of the easiest methods. The SS270 highway takes a rough circle route around the island and takes in the majority of larger towns that you may want to visit. This will take you around an hour to an hour and a half to complete.
However, you don’t have to only stay on here, there are also smaller roads that will take you to the beaches and more rural regions and mountain roads.
It is important to remember that the roads are almost all single lane and you may meet a variety of other vehicles, some small and some large, on the way.
Getting to Ischia in the first place involves taking a ferry from Naples. There are no flights that will take you into Ischia. You can only get there by sea.
Sorrento is well serviced by a variety of different methods of public transport. Not only does it have a day and night bus service, but it is also possible to get around via train if you would prefer to travel quickly.
The nearest airport is Naples, which means that you will need to arrange for a transfer from the airport to the Sorrento Hotel or Sorrento Villa of your choice. There are a variety of taxi services in the area that will be able to organise the transfer for you and they are quite well priced.
When it comes to the Amalfi Coast you may find that the best way to see the entire area is to hop on a scooter or jump in a car. The roads here can be tricky to navigate, given that it is a hilly area. But if you are a confident driver then you should get on just fine.
If you really don’t like the idea of driving yourself then there are some public transport connections, however, it is always best to check these before you head out anywhere.
