Curiosity Kills: What About Amalfi Coast?

Once, a backpacker told me, your South Italy trip is not complete without making a trip to Amalfi Coast. On my flight to Vancouver, I received the same recommendation from a flight attendant. Curiosity kills, I google-d ‘Amalfi Coast’ the moment I hit home.

And now, ever since passing through the coast, I can’t stop myself recommending fellow backpackers this beautiful yet thrilling ride along the coast. It’s kind of hard to relax hanging up high in the sky somewhere in between a towering cliff and a deep blue sea. To make it worse, the street is just good enough for 2 mini cars at one time. The seasoned bus drivers must have pretty impressive skills shuffling through these dizzying paths.

The 40km of the coast is stretched across Sorrento to Amalfi. If you prefer cities next to the coast, Amalfi and Positani are going to fit your bill. If you are looking for mountainous area with the eagle’s view of the coast, Ravello is definitely your pick.

One of the best ways to explore Amalfi Coast would be renting the no-frills scooter. Take a slow ride and enjoy the view of luxurious gardens, fancy resorts, natural coves and cliffs paving down the town. I fell instantly in love with the cascading houses on the hillside decorated with lively colors next to the coast. But well, be warned, speeding is a definite no-no!

Amalfi Coast is an UNESCO World Heritage identified site as a cultural landscape. This place is just too awesome!
