  A looooong queue for the Amalfi bus...
by leics

Having only visited well out of season before, with hardly any people queuing for the buses, I was astonished to see the mid-October queues for the Sorrento>Amalfi bus (see photo). Most people did not get on the first bus which arrived and had to wait, by which time the queue was just as long again. I felt sorry for those with suitcases, clearly moving on to their next hotel.

If queues are this long in mid-October what must they be like in the high season?

If you are visiting in season and want to take the bus along the Amalfi Coast (it is a truly superb trip, not to be missed) then I suggest you get up early and take an early morning bus. That way you will avoid the worst of the queues (the photo was taken around 1130) and be able to enjoy the ride.

But, judging by the number of people in that queue, you will also have to be flexible about your return time. Try to return from the bus station at Amalfi, for it is quite possible that the bus will be full before it even reaches Positano or anywhere else. At least in the Amalfi bus station you know you will eventually get on a bus, even if you have to wait for a while.

Or, by far the best option imo...make sure you visit Sorrento well out of season!
