A recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site and a beautiful tourist destination, the town of Ravello sits along the beautiful shorelines of the Amalfi Coast. Its transportation network connects people by car and bus.
Riding the Bus
The road up to Ravello from Amalfi or Atrani is in good condition. However, visitors should know that the route is a winding one. It twists its way up high into the towns and villages that sit in the hills. The buses from Amalfi leave about every 20 to 30 minutes and take about 20 minutes to get up to Ravello, so you need to buy a one hour ticket. The cost is quite affordable and either costs one or two euros.
The Amalfi SITA bus station is the most common access to Ravello. If you’re leaving from Sorrento, you’ll still have to travel along the Amalfi Coast by bus. The bus takes a continuous route from Sorrento, to Amalfi, and finally to Ravello. The trip is quick enough that you can make it back to Sorrento by nightfall. Tickets in Sorrento can be purchased at the Sorrento train station, and buses depart twice an hour throughout the day.
You can get to Ravello by two roads. The first is the most famous: the coastal road that starts from Sorrento or Salerno. However, there’s another, lesser known road through the Valico di Chiunzi pass. From the Salerno plain, you will go up a mountain range, through a mountain pass, and descend on Ravello.
While the coastal road provides a wonderful view of the sea, the mountain road provides a view of the rural areas.
