Starting in Salerno, the route offers a pleasant drive of traditional town architecture & awe-inspiring mountain scenery.
Scaling along the lush green mountain side, houses & restaurants perch on the terrain, overlooking the sea. As you climb the road begins to have tighter curves, bends, & sheer drops.
Past San Cosma, detour to the 13th Century Moorish-influenced Villa Rufolo overlooking the sea with 'cascading gardens & terraces'.
A short drive takes you Amalfi Cathedral, an impressive 9th Century Romanesque Roman Catholic structure.
Stop next at the Grotta dello Smeraldo (Cave of Smeraldo), a beautiful emerald grotto under the rocky Cliffside.
Further up find Cala di Furore, a secret bay nestled within the mountains. The clear vibrant turquoise water is perfect for a dip.
The route finishes in San Pietro, but you may want to drive more of mountain roads for challenging hairpins & higher viewpoints of the breath-taking scenery.
