#49 - Rome, Italy
Visited Here?
Do You Dream?
You'll actually want to respect the speed limits to enjoy the ride.
Jump on the Strada Statale 163 and embark on the 25-mile long drive along the Amalfi Coast. It runs along the coastline form Maiori to Positano - where you'll want to stop and enjoy the view from the cliff town nestled on the side of a mountain plummeting into the Mediterranean Sea. Enjoy some limoncello (after the drive) and our #49 AbsoluteVisit.

Quick Facts & History

  • It is a common misconception that Sorrento is included in the Amalfi Coast; some of the towns that are actually considered part of the Amalfi stretch include Positano, Vietri sul Mare, Amalfi, Ravello, and Pralano.
  • There is no train service to travel along the Amalfi Coast; the only ways to travel along the coast are by bus, boat, or renting a car.
  • Another common misconception abou the Amalfi Coast is that it is a beach (something we tend to equate with the word coast). The Amalfi Coast does in fact have some towns on the beach and waterfront, but it also includes towns up in high, rocky cliffs way above the beach.
  • Amalfi was one of the first places in Europe to ever make paper.
  • The 2004 film starring Scarlett Johansson and Helen Hunt, A Good Woman, was filmed in Amalfi.
