the Almafi Drive (taken wikipedia)
The Amalfi Drive is the conventional name of a section of road which runs along the stretch of the Amalfi Coast between the southern Italian towns of Sorrento and Amalfi. The road was originally built by the Romans. The drive between Salerno, at the southern base of the peninsula, and Positano follows the coast for about 80 km. For the greater part of its route, the road is carved out of the side of the coastal cliffs, giving views down to the Tyrrhenian Sea and on the other side up to the cliffs above. The road passes through the village of Positano, which is built on the side of the hill. Both the village and the whole drive are tourist attractions in the area.

La Tonarella, The easiest way to reach La Tonnarella is by boat. There is a regular shuttle service from Amalfi. You can also get to the beach from the main Amalfi Coast road by walking down a few hundred steps. This little slip of a beach and the houses set into the steep cliff above are home to a few fisherman. The restaurant has been here since the 1960s when the Amalfi Coast became the chosen getaway for movie stars and celebrities. There is even a dish named after Jaqueline Kennedy who used to dine here. Spaghetto di Jacqueline is a mix of zucchini, parmesan cheese and pancetta. The menu is mostly seafood and your best bet is to just ask what’s fresh and let them bring out plate after plate.
