Amalfi Drive and Capri
Does anyone know approximately how long it takes to do the amalfi drive. We are hoping to do both that and a quick trip to Capri in one day. We will have about 10 hours.

If you are starting in Sorrento, you'll have to go to Capri first (boats stop early). Obviously get the first boat. <BR>Don't do the Blue Grotto. IMO just a waste of time and you don't have it. <BR>Take the funicular up to the town and walk around for a few hours. You can go to some of the beautiful sights. <BR>Come back by 1: or 1:30 and you should have time for the drive. You may not have time to go past Positano but this is just a taste. <BR>

Coming from.....???? You could do a daytrip leaving from Sorrento in the AM, get back (go on your own DON'T waste time on a packaged tour) around 2PM and drive all the way to Salerno -- take the A3 back to....?????

As before mentioned, go to Capri in the morning. Take the bus to Anna Capri and the lift to the top of the Island. Very beautiful. <BR> <BR>The Almalfi drive is absolutely beautiful and fun. A lot of it looks the same so you will still have a flavor for it in just a small trip. I would not recommend driving it at night.

take the ferry from capri to sorrento then do the's a windy road and depending on traffic you can make the drive from sorrento to Naples in about an hour..but would want to spend at least 10 hours there....
