The easiest and most scenic way to move about on the Amalfi Coast is certainly by boat. You avoid the sometimes crowded public SITA buses, the traffic jams or periodic road blocks, and you get to see the beautiful Amalfi Coast from the sea. Yesterday I hopped on the 11:30am Travelmar boat from Amalfi and I was in Positano just a few minutes past noon. It was a relaxing and lovely trip, and well worth the €6.00. While there are a variety of boat and jet options (depending on how fast and when you want to go) connecting the Amalfi Coast to Salerno, Sorrento, Capri and Naples, I highly recommend checking into the affordable Travelmar linea intercostiera.

The blogger/ expat meet up was lovely! I met Scintilla from Bell’Avventura, Leanne from From Australia to Italy, and several other expats living on the Amalfi Coast. We had lunch right near the beach at Le Tre Sorelle, where we sat and shared our stories, adventures, and dreams of living in Italy. I look forward to meeting up with these lovely ladies again in the near future!
On the pleasant boat ride back from Positano on the Maria Madre, I thought back to Scintilla’s post about the funny signs on the boat and chuckled. No firearms, check. Turn lights on to flush toilet, check. Don’t throw anything overboard unless a certain number of miles from the shore, check. Too funny! If this post has made you desperate for more Positano, head over to Bell’Avventura where you can find out about three new webcams in Positano.

I had such a great day and it was lovely to meet you. We must have another catch up some time soonish!
I hope you post some beautiful pictures of you and the girls!
Ciao Joe! Thanks for your lovely comment and for introducing yourself. Always happy to meet new readers! 🙂
Ciao Anne! It was so much fun! I had only met one of the ladies briefly before, so it was really fun to sit and enjoy lunch and get to know one another a bit more. I look forward to doing it again soon!
Ciao Leanne! It was great to meet you! I look forward to getting that cafè when you pass by my way one of these days. Remind me to send you my mobile number.
Ciao Lucia! Oh silly me … I was so busy chatting that I forgot to get the camera out and snap a few pictures. I guess we will just have to do it again! 🙂

this is great information. I will be heading to the Amalfi coast in September and will be sure to "take a boat" Although it looks like the boats may not stop in Praiano which is where I'll be staying. bummer.
Ciao Food Hunter! September on the Amalfi Coast is beautiful! You are right that there is no boat service in Priano. The city doesn't have a port, so your best bet will be going to Positano by bus and walking down to the port there. But the good news with that is you have plenty of chances to enjoy Positano! 🙂
Such an amazing coast Amalfi has. It is very interesting information. Thanks for sharing here. Well i have some information about Sorrento Sightseeing. You can find here Sorrento Sightseeing
