Amalfi coast drive : Italy

The Amalfi region in southern Italy is absolutely breath-taking. Mountains overlooking a long coast, clear blue water next to wild green, ancient Italian architecture meets hiking and beaches, crazy long winding roads with insane Italian drivers. It might be a bit over commercialized and touristic, but as far as tourism goes, this is probably as good as it gets.

We rented a car in Rome, made our way down south, headed up the mountains with road SP2b and SP1, and made our first stop in Ravello. We really struggled through the very narrow one-way roads, but finally made it to our BB Santalucia. The next day we did the Path of Gods famous hike (Sentiero degli dei) leaving from Agerola and ending at Positano. We then moved to the western side of the coast to stay with Residence Gocce Di Capri, and next day spent the day exploring Capri Island.

Overall, a very memorable trip, in some of the most beautiful natural scenery I’ve seen in a while. With the extra special Italian twist, and time spent with family, this was definitely a wonderful trip.
