These timetables from Sorrento to Amalfi, along the SS 163, will help you to plan your hike on the path of the Gods. Remember, walking along the trail could be tough for someone, drop on a jam-packed bus, full of commuters and tourists, for a couple of hours before the hike… and another two hours after the walk, could upset everyone.
The new SITA bus: after the original blue, the newer gray+green, the newst is the red one!
These are the towns covered by the SITA buses: Amalfi; Conca; Praiano; Positano; Colli San Pietro; Meta; San Agnello; Colli Fontanelle; Sant’ Agata; Priora; Sorrento; Piano di Sorrento.
If you stay in one of above towns and want to use public transports you have no choice: you have to deal with this timetable, deal with traffic jam, deal with accidents and, if you are prone to motion sickness, the hairpins on these roads will certainly induce sickness symptoms very quickly, especially if you lay in the back seats. Be also conscious about the fact, quite common, that traffic affect the timetable constantly during high season. No traffic? the buses arrives early; traffic jam? the buses will be late. That’s it. Also, during high season, in these years from end of may to end of september / half of october, could happen that overcrowded buses won’t stop, leaving you in the hands of NCC’s & taxis (a really expensive way to move sometimes). While you won’t probably incur in these hitches along the way from Amalfi to Bomerano, and viceversa, these are frequent along the Amalfi Coast main road, SS 163, from Sorrento to Amalfi. Hiring a professional local guide will help to avoid the kind of issues you could find reaching the path of the Gods.
Remember also that while the hike is free of charges, SITA buses aren’t and you have to buy your tickets in advance, before you get on the bus.
This website is not updated constantly so, please, remember it is your own responsibility to double check the timetable from the source (SITA bus website).
