The Amalfi Coast is one of the most magical places you can visit in the world. It’s no wonder that tourists flock to the beautiful seaside cliffs in the summer months. My first trip to Positano and the Amalfi coast was over 15 years ago and each subsequent visit has been just as unforgettable. Due to the amount of tourism this small piece of paradise faces, if you’re planning a trip in the future you may want to consider visiting off season. Both May and September should still have nice weather, but will not be quite as busy.
A coastal drive with a stop in Ravello
Ravello is a little further out on the Amalfi Coast and typically receives less visitors than Positano and Sorrento. But I have to say, this is probably my favorite little town on the whole coast. Take a taxi or hire a driver (I wouldn’t recommend driving yourself as the roads are difficult to navigate) and enjoy the drive along the coast. Once there be sure to check out the lush gardens, enjoy a spritz with a view, and if you have time take a cooking class with Mamma Agata!
A boat trip to Capri and lunch under a lemon grove
Hiring a boat or taking the ferry to Capri is a popular side trip from the Amalfi Coast. The designer shops and fancy restaurants will remind you that this has been a vacation hot spot for the rich and famous for many decades. Be sure to make reservations at Da Paolino to enjoy al fresco dining under a lemon grove! This restaurant is so romantic and the food is incredible.
Lunch at Da Adolfo and a dip in the Sea
A trip to Laurito Beach and lunch at Da Adolfo is a must do when visiting the Amalfi Coast. Make reservations in advance and pick up the boat (marked with a red fish) at the Positano Wharf. There is a swimming area by the restaurant so pack your suit and be sure to order the mozzarella on a lemon leaf. Deliziosa!
Dinner and Limoncello with a view
There are several restaurants located on Positano’s beach and is the perfect place for a dinner (possibly a heart shaped pizza!). Before or after dinner head over to Franco’s bar for a drink.
