car from the North of Italy or Rome
Take the highway autostrada A1 Rome Naples: exit
at Naples. Be careful, dont turn to Salernos direction. At Naples pay the
toll. Take the highway autostrada A3 Naples Pompei Salerno,
paying the toll at the entrance. Exit at Castellammare di Stabia, dont follow
absolutely Amalfis direction, but continue to Vico Equense, then to Sorrento,
Positano, and at last to Praiano. Hotel Onda Verde is on the road named S.S. 163
Amalfitana, 7 km after Positano.
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
From Rome travel time bout 3/4 hours.
IMPORTANT: Before 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.
By car from the
South of taly or Puglia:
From the south, take the highway autostrada Reggio Calabria
Salerno: exit at Salerno.
From Puglia, take the highway autostrada Bari Napoli, exit at Avellino
and then take the freeway Avellino Salerno. In both cases go on to Vietri sul Mare
and then to Amalfi Praiano Positano. Hotel Onda Verde is on the road named
S.S. 163 Amalfitana, 7 km after Amalfi.
Statale 163 (State Highway 163), which
runs along the southern side of the Sorrentine peninsula as far as Salerno, is better
known as the Amalfi Drive. It can be reached from Naples via the A3 Autostrada to
Castellammare di Stabia, which is on the northern side of the Sorrentine peninsula and is
linked to Sorrento farther west by Statale 145. Beyond Sorrento, Statale 145 winds
westward around the tip of the peninsula and returns eastward along its southern edge as
Statale 163 - the Amalfi Drive. The road is a concrete ribbon that rewards visitors with
mountain-meets-sea views at every turn, but driving it, as well as the narrow hairpin
roads of the Sorrentine peninsula, can be both a joy and a challenge. Medium-size cars are
a good compromise. The round reflecting mirrors set along major curves in the road intend
to show if others are coming around a bend; they may help but remain ever alert. Honk
before curves to let oncoming traffic know about you, and listen for honks from oncoming
curves. Buses and trucks will sometimes require you to back up; if there's a standoff,
take it in stride, as it goes on all the time.
For these circumstances we
like to recommend you that the best way to get to Hotel Onda Verde from Naples is by
pre-arranged taxi. We can arrange for a luxurious and comfortable Mercedes to meet you at
the Naples airport or train station and bring you directly to us, for a one way fare of
Euro 110,00 for up to 4 persons (90' min. route driving). With this method you will be met
at either the Naples airport or railway station (Piazza Garibaldi) by a driver holding a
sign with your name. Then you will ride comfortably to Hotel Onda Verde, enjoying the
beautiful scenery without worries about directions or charges.
Also, we want to inform that many guests that come here with a rental car, once that they
have understood the difficulty to drive they leave the auto in the parking without using
it for all the stay losing all the money they spent for the rental. These money can be
well spent enjoying in relax the day trips well organized with english speaking guides to
Pompeii & Vesuvius, Herculaneum & Sorrento, Naples, Paestum and Rome, we will be
happy to arrange all of these activities for you. The Hotel Onda Verde also, is well
connected with bus stop on our parking to Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, Sorrento and Pompeii.

a major problem. It is often a good idea (if not the only option) to park your car in a
designated (preferably attended) lot. Parking in an area signposted zona disco
(disk zone) is allowed for limited periods (from 30 minutes to two hours or more - the
limit is posted); if you don't have the cardboard disk (inquire at the local tourist
office) to show what time you parked, you can use a piece of paper. The parcometro,
the Italian version of metered parking in which you put coins into a machine for a stamped
ticket that you leave on the dashboard, has been introduced in some places. It's advisable
to leave your car only in guarded parking areas.
