The Amalfi Coast by Land

Highway 193, the famed Amalfi Coast road, is known for being one of the most beautiful drives in the world. Twisting its way directly above the rocky coast, it has breathtaking views around every curve.

  • Drive to Positano, with photo stops along the way at the most scenic overlooks
  • Stop in Positano
