Beautiful coastline both from land and sea! Worth a drive or cruise especially on a nice summer day (but it is hot!)

We did the drive early in the morning in January -- you can't get more off-season that this -- and were underwhelmed. Yes, the sea views are nice, but nothing I haven't seen in a dozen other places in the world. The trip is just too much hassle: the road is too narrow and windy (I can't imagine driving it... More

THe colour of the sea and the lush vegetation, the winding roads. The houses perched precariously on the cliffs. Towns built on hills. Lemoncello. Linen. Leather, Pizza....Black sand leading into the ocean. We were there on a hot, clear beautiful day in July. One day was not enough. I will be back.

Beautiful drive from Amalfi to Positano; stunning view on the sea in front and the mountains behind.

We just got back from driving the Amalfi Coast and couldn't be happier with the experience! Not only the experience of driving and dealing with other cars, buses, trucks, bicyclists and people (which all added to the experience!) but the views are simply amazing. Pictures do not do it justice you just have to see it for yourself. All of... More

The views you get from this road is just out of this world, there is no where else like it. Its things like this that bring you to the Amalfi coast so ensure that you do it!

The drive along this high winding road is simply spell-binding, with sheer drops down to wonderful blue sea, The view of Positano with houses seemingly stuck to the hillside is equally wonderful.

The idea that this is scary is very overblown ! It certainly needs concentration, but the road is so narrow and twisty, speeds are generally slow. Similar rules seem to apply to being at sea, the smaller you are the more you must give way - but as soon as you get the technique of trying to keep moving as... More

It's one hairpin turn after another and you have to stop, even back up if a bus is coming the other way, but the drive is an attraction in itself. You have to love the freedom of going and coming when you want. We were here in late October and early November so parking was not really an issue. Take... More

Driving the Amalfi Coast road yourself is a cliff hanging, twisting, beautiful, picturesque and sometimes challenging experience which comes with bragging rights & Bucket List inclusion. You'll start in Sorrento, move to the high cliffs seeing Positano, Priano, Amalfi, Ravello and smaller seaside towns before reaching Salerno. It's not fast but it's the way to see this wonderful area -... More
