WHAT TO EXPLORE:
It’s difficult to not fall in love with the Amalfi Coastline. The stretch along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula is filled with small beaches, pastel colored villages and jaw dropping views. The perfect place to close your eyes and soak up the sunshine.
Right on the southern tip of the Amalfi Coast, you might recognize the cliffside village of Positano from Under The Tuscan Sun. If you are visiting, you should make sure to see the church of Santa Maria Assunta and the Marina Grande beach which is the most recognized beach in town at the base of the cliff side.
The hilltop town of Ravello proper is not accessible by car which makes it a great spot for a leisurely day of walking and exploring. Because the town is so small, it’s great if you are looking for a quieter experience.
Hotel Villa Cimbrone is a 12th century hotel nestled in Ravello that offers expansive gardens and dramatic views. Most notably famous for the Terrace of Infinity, you’re able to see an outline of the Cilento Mountains. It really is like a real life postcard.
You can’t go to Amalfi Coast without spending some time on the water, and we were lucky enough to have our factory owners treat us to a boating day! We left from Salerno and stopped in Positano for lunch on the beach. The day was filled with swimming, rose, and laughter. The perfect end to our trip!
