An Itinerary for the Perfect Road Trip in the Amalfi Coast
The Amalfi Coast is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites recognised for an outstanding Mediterranean landscape. Imagine an itinerary with panoramic sea views, terraced hill villages, and mysteriously winding roads. You can now plan a perfect self-driving holiday.
Salerno This is the gateway to Amalfi Coast. You can start your sightseeing with the Lungomare Trieste, a seashore deck that stretches from Salerno to Piazza Della Concordia harbour. Drive about 2 miles to Vietri Sul Mare, the first official town separated by a harbour wall from Salerno. Experience the vibrant majolica, a type of earthenware pottery, and grab a few souvenirs before hopping back to Capo d'Orso lighthouse, a spectacular vantage point engraved into the Maiori cliffs.
An hour's drive takes you from Salerno to Sorrento. You may add a hike to the itinerary because the paved road at Punta Campanella is worth exploring by foot. This is where Ulysses is believed to have met sirens. Also, the Greeks constructed a temple to commemorate Athena at the same site. At sunset, consider having drinks at Relais Blu's rooftop in Massa Lubrense. This building is surrounded by hills overlooking Capri island, one of the famous isles on Naples. Order some olive oil that has been produced in one of the nearby farmhouses. A stuffed-lemon dinner is also worth the indulgence.
Praiano The secret coves and pastel-coloured architecture in Positano are quite bewitching and especially dreamy in the morning. Here, you can find a glitzy bar suspended over the ocean. If you are looking for something local, drive to Praiano which is an equally stunning town for seashore views. Most of the food here is locally sourced or grown from the hotel's gardens.
During summer, the second oldest Italian music festival happens in Ravello. Don't miss this glamorous hideaway tucked between hills. It was once a luxurious villa on the Amalfi Coast known as Rufolo, owned by a merchant in the 13th century. Today, it is a paradise with gardens as picturesque as the Palace of Versailles. Start the trip at the viewpoint facing Piazza Vescovado and head to town where famous artists sell jewellery. Park your car and hire a bike for a quick ride to Maria Cuomo vineyards located on Furore's fjord. The wine here is very worth a taste.
