From the exuberant natural beauty of the mountainous landscape overlooking clear seas of awe-inspiring blue hues, to the fine detail of the bright villages and stone churches set into the rock of these hills, the beauty of the region warms all who imbibe of its aesthetic riches. A drive along the Coast Road by car or by motorbike (or Vespa) will bring you into the canvas to experience the tantalising aroma of sun-yellow lemon trees among rock-face communities, local fishermen and rich Mediterranean food, old smuggling caves, and dazzling beaches that tempt you seaside; the coastline offerings of Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, Sorrento and their smaller neighbours are breathtakingly self-indulgent.
