Positano italy

Another bend in the road, another village and another set of seemingly unbelievable coastal views. The Amalfi Coast drive in Italy is one of the world’s most famous, and with good reason. Seemingly plucked out of a fairy tale, a day spent exploring the many towns and villages along this rugged coast is a highlight for most visitors to Southern Italy. I recently had the ...
