The Amalfi Coast with its rugged landscape is one of Italy’s beautiful vacation destinations. Certainly it’s a favorite of mine, as you know by now.
Navigating the narrow winding streets by car are difficult at best. I cannot imagine a large truck with construction equipment could make it to some of these locations. This bus and RV barely have enough space to pass each other without scraping the side walls or knocking the mirrors off the vehicles.
No wonder many of the areas are pedestrian only and it takes over 300 steps to walk to your hotel on the beach.
But it is all worth it… every part of it, even when you find yourself cursing under your breath that you wish you had lost weight before this trip, so you could climb all the staircases and inclined walkways without feeling like you needed an oxygen mask.
