The Amalfi Coast is candy for the eyes with villages crawling from the Mediterranean Sea up mountains in southwestern Italy. The scenery is incredibly stunning and inspirational for composers, artists and moviemakers, and just about anyone else. The setting is so incredibly stunning that National Geographic considers the drive one of its ultimate road trips. The drive along the Amalfi Coast towns can be made in about two hours, with a few stops, but why would anyone want to rush through one of nature’s treats. Take time to stop and smell the lemon blossoms, tour an ancient church, buy the colorful ceramics the region is famous for or just plain chill out.
