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.
