»» Amalfi Coast Driving Tips

A couple of suggestions for those who are planning a driving trip to Amalfi Coast.

Do not drive there, unless you are an experienced driver — I mean an experienced one on Italian roads.

Driving along the Amalfi Coast is really not easy, especially for foreign tourists. You’ll have to face with snake two lane roads and with parking hard to find.

So if you want to avoid any headaches, choose an option other than driving when visiting Amalfi Coast. (see alternative options to driving to Amalfi Coast)
