The most breathtaking cliff road in Italy is just south of Naples along the west coast within the Gulf of Salerno and gets its name from one of the several summer villages along it called Amalfi. Popular pleasures here include great sea food meals served with the famous Lacrima Christi wine from the vineyards along Mount Vesuvius, road winds with spectacular views and fun beach hopping. Fron Naples on the way to the Amalfi Coast you can admire one of Italy’s active volcano mount Vesuvius famous in the history records for the eruption of the year 79 A.D. burying the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum with over 20 feet of pumice and ash. The excavations of the 16th and 18th century reviled a city petrified in time, in some buildings paintings, sculpture and graffiti have survived and are still visible.
