Rent one of our electric cars and drive along the Amalfi Coast scenic road 163 !
If you are preparing for your first trip on the mythical scenic drives on Amalfi Coast route 163 surely you have already let yourself be fascinated by the many images of the breathtaking views that unfold, curve after curve, along its more than 50 km. to drive.
From Positano to Vietri sul Mare the coastal scenic route 163, called by the locals "the Amalfitana", is the main artery that connects every small village on the Amalfi Coast.
Considered one of the most beautiful panoramic roads in the world, it is no coincidence that it is often chosen as a set for splendid spots with cars that caress with ease each of its sinuous bends and tunnels carved into the rock, while the sea below opens immensely to lapping dizzying cliffs.
All around the wild nature that proliferates luxuriantly, dramatically clinging to the leathery slopes within which it is carved - above the mountain with its gardens, vineyards and hanging lemon groves to degrade, under the sea with its ripples to break on the overhanging cliffs and caress the beautiful beaches in the shelter of secluded bays.
To build such a daring and amazing work, it took almost 20 years, in the first half of the 19th century, and it is no coincidence that in 1997 it was declared a "World Heritage Site" by UNESCO for the great cultural and naturalistic value it offers to the whole world.
Along its sinuous and unpredictable lines one can find all the meaning of the Mediterranean concept, witnessed by each of the 14 small villages that are set along its ridge. Positano, Praiano, Furore, Agerola, Conca dei Marini, Amalfi, Atrani, Ravello, Scala, Minori, Maiori, Tramonti, Cetara, Vietri sul Mare - from the westernmost point to the easternmost point. Driving along the scenic Amalfi Coast SS 163 route is one of the most beautiful car journeys in the world.
A journey dedicated to the 5 senses which combines the privileges of a beach holiday with those of a journey through the history and culture of a mythological and evocative land, suspended between sky and sea.
