Amalfi Coast Road Trip

Explore the stunning Mediterranean landscape


Take a trip around the Amalfi Coast, a little-known haven of the famous for centuries. Everyone from Richard Wagner to Greta Garbo sought serenity here, and it’s arguably the most stunning coastal Mediterranean landscape in Europe.

Awarded a hallowed spot on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997, in recent years it has garnered a reputation as a mecca for luxury-seeking vacationers. As such, the Amalfi Coast drive is best experienced outside the peak summer season, mid-September to October and May, when the tour buses are scarce enough to allow the roads to be enjoyed without distraction. The 40 or so miles of winding coastal road above the turquoise sea features infinite lemon groves and ornate, pastel-hued villas perched on the mountainside. You’ll soon realize why this idyllic location has an enduring draw.
