The Road of Terror | Driving Along the Amalfi Coast

Hold on to your ‘Oh Shit’ handles ladies and gentlemen!

This video explains better than any words why I cringe when my clients tell me they think renting a car for the Amalfi coast in August would be fun.


I’m obsessed with feedback, let me know what you think.

Love it??  Pass it on!

    I lived in S’Agata, between Sorrento and Positano many years ago. You do get used to the driving, but I would never do it in summer.

    Hahaha. Been there, done that. In fact my husband had the cajones to ride that on his bicycle, mixing it up with tour buses, speeding motorcycles, and terrified tourists. It was scary, but he said it was the most beautiful bicycle ride he’d ever done!

    Thank you so much for the beautiful memories and smile that you brought to my face. I used to make this trip every year from Ravello to Sorrento and I even remembered some features that you see along the way whilst watching this clip. I agree with thomasinaburke’s husband … simply the most beautiful ride in the world!

    Too scary, I was a nervous wreck just drive from Naples through to Sorrento.
