Ahhh, the Amalfi Coast in Italy. What a wonderful place and wonderful country.
Italy, one of the most alluring getaways in Europe, is known for its mouth-watering cuisines, rich and tasty pasta sauces, world-class- artists, beautiful landscapes, neo-classical civilization, and not to forget the famous Italian gelato. Having traveled to Italy probably over 30 times in my life, I am always drawn to the incredible architecture, historical ruins, and the people that live life less ordinary. We should all live like Italians. Working to live, not living to work. Kati and I always seem to be heading back as there is always more to explore in Italy.
One of our favorite spots is the Amalfi Coast. Not just Positano, what most people think of when they think the Amalfi Coast, but rather the entire coast (we actually do not recommend Positano as it is too expensive and too touristy). We typically stay in Praiano which is Positano’s less crowded, just as beautiful neighbor.
The Amalfi Coast is a long stretch from Sorrento south to Amalfi. There are many little towns and villages along the way. We recommend staying there and spend an afternoon in Positano. You will get a break on the cost and the views are just as spectacular.
