Jaw-dropping coastline? Check. Postcard-perfect seaside towns? Check. Fresh, handmade pasta and creamy gelato? Check. Located in southern Italy, the Amalfi Coast is one of those places that was seemingly plucked straight out of a summer postcard. The area is connected by the 25 mile-long Strada Satale 163 with 1000 curly bends around the iconic coastline, passing through deep gorges, along high cliffs, and between lemon groves. Thirteen municipalities are located on the Amalfi Coast and each of the region’s 100 beaches is bordered by colorful umbrellas and locals/tourists working on their tans. Away from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan affairs, the culture here is rustic, old-school, charming, and quaint.
The Amalfi Coast was always super high on my Italy bucket list. I had lusted after the picture-perfect views of pastel houses stacked on high cliffs rising from the oceans overlooking perfect beaches. So when the opportunity arose, I put together the 7-day Amalfi Coast road trip itinerary for our summer vacay. This road trip was absolutely a highlight of our summer to be able to visit this stretch of coastal paradise. If Amalfi is on your bucket list, then this guide will cover everything you need to know when you plan your trip to Amalfi Coast.
