    Need Italy Recommendations

    My wife and I are hoping to spend about 10 days in Italy in late May. Will be mostly in southern Italy from Naples to the Amalfi Coast. I'd appreciate any recommendations on riding opportunities in this area. My brother-in-law has done a lot of cycling in Italy but all of it in the northern part.

    The Amalfi Coast is one of the great drives in Italy. The road is chiseled out of the side of the cliffs. The views spectacular, the food wonderful. Make sure you're payed up on your life insurance if you want to ride it. The locals pass on blind turns and at that time of year there will be more and more tour buses.

    Last time I was there was in the month of January a few years ago. Traffic was significantly lighter and the locals much mellower and friendly.

    Eat - pizza, pasta, seafood, gelato
    Drink - limoncello and espresso and the local white wine - lachryma christi.

    May is a beautiful time of year to go. Have a great time.
