To drive the Amalfi coast is challenging, rewarding, and breathtaking. If you are planning to drive yourself, I would recommend renting a small or mid size car as the roads are narrow. To drive in Southern Italy can be described in two words: “No Hesitation”. If you plan to make a turn make the turn, if you hesitate you will be in that spot forever or worst put yourself in danger. The drive begins in Castellammare di Stabia until Salerno. If you choose to not take the coast, you can return by highway from Amalfi via beautiful forests. Here are some photos from the area:
