Amalfi Coast - those in favour.....

Jump to last reply

As a reasonably frequent visitor to Italy, the area south of Naples (and the city itself) has escaped my attentions up to now. Previous trips have included Rome, Venice, (almost) all the Northern Lakes, Milan, Tuscany, Cinque Terre and Sicily, including the Aeolian Islands.
Why have I never been tempted to visit what would appear to be the most photogenic corner of Italy?
On the pro side, I have an extinct volcano, an extinct Roman city and sea views to die for.
On the other side, a city that has problems with garbage, a road system only suited to those bearing a death wish, picturesque but claustrophobic towns wedged between mountains and sea, an island prone to daily invasion with tourist hordes, starry eyed honeymooners with hotel prices to match, restaurants catering solely to the tourist market with nothing on the menu reflecting what might pass as local cuisine......

Lovers of the Amalfi Coast, please disabuse me of my preconceptions!
