Is it reasonable to have a one day trip from Naples to Amalfi Coast?

Will it be too rush to stay only one day in Amalfi Coast? As I would love to spend more time to explore Naples, but still wanting to visit Amalfi Coast. Any suggestion about that? Thanks :)

hello! yeah sure! what i always suggest is start from positano then drive to praiano, amalfi and ravello (and vietri sul mare if you have time!). the places are amazing but the drive itself is incredible, no matter the weather!

Yes, of course, Amalfi coast is a must see especially in sunny days. Check this link http://www.metròdelmare.it/aliscafi_e_traghetti/amalfi/

Hello,
It depends on how many days you will stay in Napoli, if you can go by car and if it will be a sunny day.
Amalfi coast is wonderful, as all our region. Firstly, better to visit Napoli, Caserta area, Pompeii and Vesuvio.

You are welcome 😊Remember that only in Napoli area there are 52 museums, 50 archeological sites, 448 churches, 7 castles, 3 volcanoes, 5 islands, 17 theaters, 3500 pizzerias and 3 millions of extraordinary people 😉
Hi again. Now I am planning to extend 2 more days in Naples as I m so interested to visit Pompeii as well! What do you think about I stay in Naples but having a one day trip to Amalfi Coast, and another day trip to Pompeii? Does it sound stupid? As the internet said it take less than an hour to transport to those 2 places. Thank you very very much!

Less than an hour?
Napoli to Pompei, yes. 30 minutes by circumvesuviana.
Amalfi coast absolutely not.
Firstly, I suggest you to go to Sorrento (45 minutes). Then, to Positano (by car, by bus you will not enjoy all the views). Then to Amalfi and after Ravello. To back to Napoli, one hour and half by car. By bus, little bit more.
God that helps a lot! By the way, you are saying a one-day trip itinerary right? Thank you very much again! I hope I can meet a lot of people like you in Italy.

Sorrento and Amalfi coast one day, better by car and only it it will not rain.
Pompei: this archeological site is to huge, you can spend two hours as well eight hours.
I don't suggest you to spend one day there. Better visit Pompeii and Vesuvius or Pompeii and Herculaneum (my favorite).
Otherwise just half day to Pompeii.
When you come?
I will arrive Naples on 20 Nov and stay till 23 Nov. Thank you again :) Have a nice day!
