Story: Driving along the Amalfi Coast is like entering a parallel universe circa 1960, when the region blossomed with Audrey Hepburn glamour and la dolce vita was the only way of life. The eternally romantic towns of Amalfi, Ravello and Positano retain every morsel of their heyday charm and remain enforceable stops on an oft-tread route – one that you will take in a vintage Fiat 500. A bricolage of historicism from cinema to Constantine, weave past stoic architecture, crumbling churches and down vine-strung backstreets as you make your way along the coastline. Beyond the villages, tread a path that ebbs and flows between deliciously cold swimming pitstops, pizza eaten in the shade of a citrus tree and heady, Aperol-fuelled nights.
That’s amore, that’s Italy.
