The sea. the smell of lemons in the warm air of a summer afternoon. The rides between little paths of the streets, a gelato in the main square of little coastal villages. These are the main reasons why I absolute adore the Amalfi Coast! Overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Amalfi Coast is one of the 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Sunlit beaches, secret coves and citrus gardens, are ready to be discovered along route 163: the coastline looks like a balcony suspended between the cobalt blue sea and the slopes of the Lattari Mountains.Today I am going to show you how you can create the perfect travel experience with an adventurous and convenient road trip!

Follow an itinerary
Start your adventure on the road between the 60 km of state bends that begins in Meta and ends in Vietrisul Mare passing through Positano, Praiano, Amalfi, Minori, Maiori and Cetara.

Every city has its own historical center with churches, picturesque square and streets and other unique attractions you just have to explore!
