If you drive from Rome to Positano it's about 8 hours and worth the trip. However once you get to the Amalfi Coast be prepared to go through about 100 bends & turns on its famous roadway. At first you feel like you are in a Fellini movie and you will take each turn like a professional race car driver. However, shortly thereafter they become exhausting and you cannot wait to get to your hotel. The views of the Amalfi Coast are breathtaking. Be careful with the tunnel entryways. They are dark as you enter and be careful not to go too quickly into them because there is always a tour bus coming out hogging both lanes. You don't want to meet anyone by accident, you know!
