Monetti taxi the best way to see the Amalfi coast by car!
My wife and I used the Monetti taxi service in late May. Carmello picked us up at the Naples train station and brought us back at the end of our stay. Rafaele was our driver for our day touring the Amalfi coast. It was the highlight of our time in Sorrento! Carmello was simply wonderful as both a host and driver. His passion for the history of the area and for Sorrento in particular was evident as he told us story after story. He kept us well informed as well as entertained, including a little singing along the way. He is very proud of his family and of Sorrento. Our day with Rafaele was simply spectacular. Enjoying the views from the comfort of the car while someone else is driving is the most relaxing way to see the coast. He stopped in areas that avoided many of the crowds and busloads of tourists. He had access to a parking area in the central part of Positano which made it easier to tour the town and waterfront. Instead of stopping at a ceramic factory where the buses stopped, we went to a different spot where we did not have to compete with throngs of people. We capped it off with lunch and a walking tour in the hill town of Ravello before heading back to Sorrento. They know so much about the area, the history, the people, the stories, not to mention excellent refferals for restaurants and places to visit. We are already planning a return trip and will use this wonderful family’s taxi service to see more of the Amalfi coast area. We can’t wait!
