Irresistible Italy: The Amalfi Coast

When I think of romance, incredible food, the arts, history and fashion- there’s one place that comes to mind – Italy. Hubs and I have been to Italy, both together and separately, but we’ve always wanted to explore more of it. After all, there is a ton to see, and do, in the famous ” boot”. We started off our two week trip on the Amalfi Coast. Hubs has raved about this area for years and after staying for a week, I can see why. It’s absolutely gorgeous and it’s most appreciated when the sun’s out. The colors of the water and buildings come to life. It’s breathtakingly beautiful. We used Sorrento as our jumping off point to explore the towns of Ravello, Amalfi, Positano and Capri. Even though it’s one of the scariest drives, it’s one that is a must when going to this part of the world. As someone who suffers from severe motion sickness, I took my seabands, Bonine and toughed it out. Unfortunately, those precautions didn’t work when we took a small boat over to Capri, but more on that later.

I couldn’t choose a favorite out of all the towns we visited. They all have their own charm and specialties. I can definitely see us coming back for getaways for the remainder of our time here. Stay tuned for more of our Italian adventures!

  1. Looks like a lovely couples-only destination. As I am always building our “holiday list,” would our Tween daughter be bored there if she tagged along with us?

    • I think she’ll do fine. We saw many families with kids of all ages down there. Make sure to go in May/early June or beginning of September. It’ll still be warm enough to get into the water, but not as many people 🙂
