Amalfi Coast

Those who tell you that it's perilous, death defying even - need to chill out. The Amalfi Coast road is one of the slowest we have driven along in Italy, it's quite wide, and the guard rails are quite decent.
There are places to pull over and take pictures every few minutes. And the views are... well, the views are...

Well the views are POSITIVELY SPECTACULAR!!! Its jsut beautiful isnt it - Iw ent along there in a bus once and thats as close to it as I came. Your site is really making me want to go back there - it truly is my kind of place. I must have Italian blood in me somewhere. All I know is I have German heritage and when I went there I felt nothing - Italy on the other hand? What is not to fall in love with. Oh Leslie, do you want to start a guided tour or something....?

Hi Leslie, that is beautiful. And I loved how your design really goes with the mood of the photo. I really need to get back to the Amalfi Coast one day soon! So many beautiful places in Italy.

Thanks for sharing.

What? I am supposed to go along the Almafi coast on my way to Sorrento? I had no idea being a tourist that they would be scary, I'd only heard they were beautiful.

Wow!
It seems the Almalfi Coast is everywhere at the moment, just heard my best mate RAVE about it after just getting back. These are the types of coincidences new travel plans are made from!!
