Italy's Amalfi Coast
Collected by Diana Smith
For travelers seeking good food and great ocean views, the Amalfi Coast is the place to go. From Sorrento, head to Positano and embark on a short but thrilling drive along the coastal cliff’s edge all the way to Vietri sul Mare. Explore hidden caves and ancient fortresses, and fill up on espresso and panoramic views. Just make sure to bring someone with you on this breathtaking ride— you'll want to trade off between driving and staring out the window.
