Venturing down the Amalfi Coast: Positano and Amalfi

If you want to witness Italian driving in all its glory then this is the journey to do. Near-misses become part of the experience on this twisty stretch of narrow coastal road, but once you’re on it you just have to embrace it! By the end of your trip you wonder how so many come so close to accidents but somehow manage to avoid them. I think Italians must have some super fast reactions compared to the rest of us! Fortunately there are ways to get down the coast without driving yourself. I can’t imagine it being very easy unless you’re super experienced on roads like this. We left it to the professionals and took the Amalfi Coast Discovery tour from Sorrento. This was a great day tour with an excellent guide, which stopped off in Positano and Amalfi as well as some points along the coast to take in the views.

We wandered around the streets of beautiful Positano…
