The entire route on the peninsula is only 70 km long, although you’re not going very fast because the road apparently has a various turn in it.


The road trip starts in Salerno. The historic port city in southwestern Italy serves as a gateway to the Amalfi Coast. Get your bearings by strolling along the Lungomare Trieste, a seaside promenade that stretches from the old town to the harbor of Piazza della Concordia where you’ll come across some of the best views of the Gulf of Salerno. Separated only from Salerno by a harbor wall, Vietri sul Mare hamlet is best known for its vibrant earthenware pottery, or majolica.

Positano is often referred to as ‘the jewel of the Amalfi peninsula’. This is a much bigger town and there are plenty of places to sleep and eat, many with incredible sea views. In the summer, you’ll find boats in the harbor offering tours out to sea- it’s a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the incredible scenery- some even allow you to swim and snorkel from the boat.

Continue your trip to Ravello, another stylish town. The gardens here are where the ‘famous’ viewpoint of the Amalfi coast is. Ravello is famous for its music festival (the second oldest in Italy). Don’t miss visiting Villa Rufolo and Palazzo Cimbrione- the Arabic influences are clear to see.

You can finish off your Amalfi Drive with a visit to Salerno. It’s got a little bit of everything. Don’t miss walking up to the Castello di Arechi, the castle built on top of the cliff. The views from up there showcase the entire bay and are some of the best in the area.
