The Romance of the Amalfi Coast, Italy

It’s hard to resist at least a short visit to Italy’s Amalfi Coast. Positano, Ravello and the town of Amalfi are all popular and breathtaking. If you can, avoid the summer months (spring and fall are a bit less crowded). A driver is recommended–you can relax and enjoy the views along the coast and leave the parking to a native!

Ravello is especially lovely in the evening after the day tourists have departed.

The town of Amalfi is walkable and good for a short stop.
