Yes, there are downsides, such as single lane coastal roads that can be extremely busy, and hotels that can be eye-wateringly expensive, but Original Travel can advise the best ways to get around (early morning or late evening) and how to get the best deals.
If you do take the plunge, Southern Italy's famous coastline runs from Punta Campanella to Salerno and includes the picturesque hilltop towns of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. It is also home to some of Italy's finest restaurants, all precariously perched along a beautiful coast of rugged cliffs and sandy coves.
The region also lends itself to walking or boating excursions, or drinking espresso and indulging in the Italian passion for people watching.
