If you’re a big fan of Italy’s coastal scene, but are looking to explore on a budget, look no further. We’ve got you covered with a list of travel hacks that will allow you see more of the Amalfi Coast without breaking the bank.

Stay in Naples

Naples is not only known for its unique street food scene, but its also a great place to stay if you’re looking to explore more of Italy’s coastal scene on a budget. Naples is known to be less expensive tourist wise, than most of Italy’s tourist destinations, making it a great home base if you’re looking to explore Italy’s coast on a budget. Choose a place that is close to the Ferries or the train station so that you will have quicker access to transit.

Take a Ferry

Once in Naples, there are many ferries that run all day and go to Capri, Amalfi, and Positano, that are a quick, inexpensive and scenic ride. Take the earliest ferry in the morning, and get the last one back to Naples, as you enjoy a whole day around neighboring islands.

Book Tickets in Advance

Book travel tickets in advance! This will allow you to get the best rate for travel, instead of last-minute tickets that will cost you top dollar. There are many trains that go to small towns where you can continue your journey from Naples all the way up the Coast.
