The Amalfi Coast

When it’s time for a break from Italy’s art museums, Roman ruins, and churches filled with Old Masters paintings, sunseekers flock to the Amalfi Coast to hobnob with the glitterati in Positano, drink in the maritime memories of the proud old republic of Amalfi, and get lost in the fragrant hilltop gardens of Ravello.

Deemed by UNESCO as an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape, the Amalfi Coast is a beguiling combination of great beauty and gripping drama: coastal mountains plunge into the sea in a stunning vertical scene of precipitous crags, picturesque towns and lush forests.

Among the glittering string of coastal gems, legendary Positano and Amalfi sparkle the brightest, while mountaintop Ravello has the glossy fame of its grandiose villas and Wagnerian connection. Sorrento and Salerno are the two main entry points to the coast. The former, a cliff-top resort, has miraculously survived the onslaught of package tourism while Salerno is a workaday port with an unhurried charm and vibrant historic centre.

Aside from its sheer beauty, the Amalfi Coast is home to some superb restaurants and hotels. It is also one of Italy’s top regions for hiking, with well-marked trails providing a great way of getting away from the clamour on the coast.

Let’s drive to the Amalfi Coast. I can find for you the perfect place to stay to enjoy your stay there. It could be an enchanting hotel overlooking the mediterranean sea, or a cozy B&B with spectacular views of the Golfo di Positano. How about the idea of renting a spacious villa where we could all stay together? Maybe one evening, if you don’t feel like going out to eat, I could give an example of my remarkable culinary skills! Alright fine!  If you don’t trust me, I can also hire a local chef that can come over and teach you a one-day Italian cooking class! Just let me know what you’d like to do, and I will customize your Amalfi Coast stay based on your preferences!
