Amalfi coast in May

Jump to last reply

I have been to Italy quite a few times but never to the Amalfi coast. As it looks so beautiful I thought it would make a great destination for our holiday in mid-May. The plan is to base ourselves in one town for a week or so and take day trips by bus and ferry. However, I've now read repeatedly that it is insanely busy and buses are so crowded that it is possible that you can't get on the bus and have to wait for the next one, or the next one. I'm less concerned about pedestrian traffic but more about transport. Are the buses less busy at certain times of the day? Do the ferries say 'no more' and you have to wait for the next one as well? I'm starting to talk myself out of going. I know that it's highly subjective but - is it worth it? how bad will it be? am I worrying about nothing? I know that it won't be as busy as July and August. What was your experience? Thank you.
