Probably there are no other kinds of transportation that offer the same sense of freedom than a scooter. If you are looking for a no stress trip, it will be difficult for you to find a car or any other vehicle able to let you move so easily around the Coast.
The two wheels are confirmed as the most suitable way to face different types of travel and territories. In particular, what could be better than a motorbike to travel along scenic roads overlooking the sea, to pass from coastal itineraries to more inaccessible ones in the hills and, above all, to explore hidden villages and very small and crowded towns in the high season? If you are planning an adventure on the Amalfi Coast keep in mind that moving from one place to another with a two-wheeled vehicle could really make the difference. The advice is to consider the scooter rental service in Positano in order to start an unforgettable holiday.
Why to rent a scooter to get around Positano?
Scooters and motorbikes are the best ways to get around Positano. This is true for different reasons: first of all for the conformation of the town, which develops vertically and is characterized by narrow streets that make it difficult to pass by car.
The scooter allows you to move with agility and in shorter times even between places of interest very close to each other and can be an excellent solution if you do not like to walk a lot, especially in the heat of the summer months.
The other reason why it is recommended not to travel by car is the cost of parking: most of the parking in the area are in fact on payment and the cost is very high (in some places you pay up to 5.00 euros per hour). Obviously, this is because Positano, as well as the other places on the Amalfi Coast, are part of a highly tourist area. Therefore, considering the costs of rental, gasoline and parking, renting a car for a one-week vacation could be expensive and heavily affect the budget.
Finally, the scooter allows you to move easily even outside the cities: a very important point for an area like the Amalfi Coast where, to reach the most beautiful beaches or the most characteristic villages, it is necessary to move away from the historic centres for several kilometres.
