reach Hotel Onda Verde
Drive: The most spectacular section is between Amalfi and Positano -
approximately 40 km. The road is just two cars wide in many sections, so
take care. Passengers may relax and be spellbound. It's so glorious that you
will want to make the journey in the opposite direction.
The Hotel Onda
a first step to a tranquil vacation, we advise leaving your own car at home
and making use of public transport as explained below.
On this page we have included all the timetables and available services
relevant to the Amalfitana coast, that is to say the timetables of
SITA buses, the
trains and the
ferries, so that you
will be able to arrange excursions to
Amalfi (7 Km),
Positano (7 Km),
Ravello (13 Km)
and other points of interest on the Sorrentina-Amalfitana coast directly
These depart and arrive from our parking lot. Just a visit to the page
detailing all the
excursions to the Amalfitana coast should be enough to assure you
that you don’t need a car in order to go on them. Avoid the torturous
coastal driving conditions and save the costs of parking (should there be
any available at all).
The SITA service offers air-conditioned buses driven by tried and tested
drivers as a great alternative to cars and connects the various centres all
Using the SITA
buses is a really novel and enjoyable experience which is certainly
different to that offered by a normal city bus service.
While staying comfortably seated and relaxed you will be able to admire the
rugged coastline with its sheer precipices plunging into the sea and floods
of curves, each with a breathtaking panorama of its own that varies with the
bends in the road.
So… enjoy these beautiful moments even before your vacation has begun,
because our curvaceous main road (A163) as beautiful as it is, isn’t easy to

north by car:
From Rome reach the main road "A1"direction south (Napoli) and, after leaving
Napoli, take the main road "A3" to Napoli - Salerno (Not Tangenziale Napoli). At
Castellammare di Stabia, take the road to Sorrento and at Meta di Sorrento take the road
to Positano - Praiano. Look for the Hotel Onda Verde on your right. You will only see the
parking area from the road. Pull your car in and, as your look at the car park, on the
left, you will see the entrance of the elevator that brings you to the reception.
Naples, in Caserta, there are directional signboards for the Amalfi Coastline; we don't
recommend this route, as it is more kilometers.
During the holidays, to avoid heavy traffic, after some kilometers from
the exit of the highway of Castellammare of Stabbia, immediately after a tunnel, turn to
the right for Gragnano and follow the directional signboards for Agerola-Amalfi-Praiano.
From Castellammare di Stabbia to Praiano, either route takes around an hour.

Taxi transfer from Naples airport/train station:
The Amalfi Drive ( The name of the road is Statale 163), is a drive to
paradise. It is a concrete ribbon that rewards visitors with some of the
most beautiful mountain-meets-sea views at every turn in the world.
However, driving it, as well as winding your way around the narrow hairpin
roads of the Amalfi Coast, can be both a joy and a challenge. For these
reasons, we suggest the best way to get to Hotel Onda Verde is by
pre-arranged taxi/car service. We can arrange a comfortable Mercedes
taxi/car service to meet you at the Naples airport or train station and
bring you directly to us for a one way fare of Euro 120,00 for up to 3
persons - 90' min. route driving. With groups of four or more people with a
lot of luggage we recommend a MINIVAN at Euro 185,00. The van will hold up
to six (6) people. Then you will ride comfortably to Hotel Onda Verde,
enjoying the beautiful scenery without any worries. We suggest to please
consider the difficulty of driving along the Amalfi Coast before renting a
car. Many of our guests leave the car in the parking lot without using it
for any of their stay. Please note if you choose to take a different taxi
from the airport, they may charge you for an empty return or double the
here for the train schedules.
To order a transfer, please, fill out our
