The World's Craziest Roads

The Amalfi Coast, Italy

The Road: Never ones to sacrifice drama in favor of logic, Italian road engineers ringed the sheer cliffs of the Sorrento Peninsula with wiggly lanes of asphalt. Teetering high above the azure Mediterranean waters, this narrow motorway weaves in and out of terraced towns and tests drivers’ handling skills as they’re forced to hug rocky bends and shimmy past fearless oncoming drivers. Viva the Amalfi, where the views are spectacular but the corners are blind!

Insider Tip: Of the picturesque towns dotting the route, none is more romantic than Ravello, whose pristine white duomo, vibrant gardens, and unparalleled views of the sea are sure to keep your heart racing long after you’ve had the courage to unfasten your safety belt.
