Hi Matan,
I stayed in the township of Amalfi (on the southern side of the peninsula) and simply hired a scooter from the local tourist office.
There are tons of scooter hire places in all small towns, but not sure about motorcycles.

Take your own helmet as they will only supply bicycle helmets and watch out on the Amalfi Road - they are totally mad but it was SO much fun

When Scootergal says "totally mad," this is not an exaggeration. Expect shiny Italian sportbikes passing cars which are passing buses, all in your lane on blind corners. It's a bit better on week-days than weekends.

Sorry I don't know about rentals. I brought my own. Googling Motorcycle rental Sorrento gave some likely results.

Hope that's helpful.

Mark

They have watched too many races...jejeje
I rode it this summer and the road was full of parked cars, crazy drivers on scooters (all wearing a jet helmet and sandals). But it is beautiful
Maybe in september it will be better, with less tourist.
