   The Amalfi Coast remained relatively isolated until recent times, and could only be reached by sea. It was made more accessible to visitors from the construction of the Amalfi Coast Road, also known as the Amalfi Drive, which was started in 1815 by Ferdinand II of Bourbon. It is the only road that runs along the coast, and connects all the main resorts, from Positano in the west to Vietri sul Mare in the east. Today, a trip along the coastal road, now known as Highway 163, and referred to as the "Nastro Azzuro," or Blue Ribbon, because of the color of the sea, which is always in sight, is a highlight of any visit to the Amalfi Coast. The road clings to the cliff-face, climbing past headlands and dipping down to the sea to reach tiny fishing villages.

The History of Pizza. 
First-made in Naples for Queen Margherita, a recipe for Margarita pizza, which is still popular today - over 100 years later.
It is said that the pizza that made Naples world famous is the Margherita pizza. It was first baked in 1889 by a local man and a town baker, who went by the last name, Esposito. He created the pizza in honour of a visit to Naples by the Queen of Italy, Queen Margherita.
He designed the pizza to follow the colors of the Italian flag, so he chose tomatoes for the red, basil for the green and Mozzarella for the white, to create the famous and patriotic pizza we still eat today.
