UNESCO considers the Amalfi Coast to be an impeccable example of the Mediterranean landscape, featuring dramatic topography and a rich and vibrant culture. This stunning region of physical beauty and natural diversity has drawn travelers for centuries, inspiring visitors from villas in Italy to hit the road for a driving tour of the area.
As one of National Geographic Magazine's "Drives of a Lifetime," a road trip along the Amalfi Coast is a perfect day activity for visitors who want to take in all of the illustrious scenery from the vantage of a compact Italian convertible.
Beginning in Salerno, which is conveniently located just around the corner from many luxury vacation rentals, your driving tour will lead to the quaint and romantic town of Ravello. Brimming with lush gardens and charming villagers, Ravello is an unforgettable getaway where you can enjoy a small lunch while gazing over the incredible Mediterranean waters.
Heading west, the last and perhaps the most spectacular Amalfi destination is Grotta dello Smeraldo, a marine cave boasting glowing emerald-green waters. You can access this hidden paradise by boat, elevator or hike.
