Explore Sea And Shore Along The Amalfi Coast - Global Traveler

Explore Sea And Shore Along The Amalfi Coast - Global Traveler | Brown Goods | Scoop.it

The Amalfi Coast’s allure to visitors is even greater today than it was a thousand years ago. A series of sparkling villages, fastened to nearly vertical slopes and bathed in lemon groves, spills into the Tyrrhenian Sea. These picturesque towns with their upscale boutiques, seafood cafés and pedestrian lanes are linked by a ferry system below and a winding coastal road above, the Blue Highway, among the world’s most spectacular and harrowing.
