Forget the car, put on a pair of walking boots and make your way along the spectacular footpaths on the Amalfi Coast.
Ancient mule tracks and precipitous cliff edge paths which, until the SS163 was built, were the only viable routes existing between the towns dotted along the Amalfi Coast.
Walk through sweet smelling lemon orchards and tiny vegetable patches stolen from the mountainside, under the watchful gaze of the occasional goat or donkey, past ancient hermitages and convents to reach panoramas which will, quite literally, take your breath away. Those who suffer from vertigo are advised to abstain!
