Five Reasons Why We Love the Amalfi Coast

Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful areas of coastline in Italy. We don’t think so. These are just five reasons why we love the region south of Naples… and the photos to prove them! (If these aren’t enough reasons to love the Amalfi Coast, here are five more! ).

The stunning–and terrifying!–Amalfi coast route

Driving along the Amalfi coast or using the SITA bus is not for everyone. We explain why it is not and offer other alternatives in this article on how to make the most of the Amalfi coast. It is beautiful. You can’t forget those hairpin curves! Well, they’re exhilarating…. To put it mildly, they’re exhilarating.

Open-air music at the Ravello Festival

Ravello, an Amalfi Coast town is not only stunning but also a paradise for music lovers. The Ravello Festival is one of the most popular events. It hosts major concerts, Q&As and performances with artists, as well as literary readings throughout summer. Many of these events take place in the beautiful Villa Rufolo gardens in the open. Although the 2012 Ravello Festival officially begins on June 23, concerts have already begun and will continue through the spring.

The tranquility and peace of the nightlife in the towns

Many tourists visit the Amalfi Coast by day. They take the bus from Sorrento to Naples and return to their hotel in Sorrento. Even the most popular towns, such as Positano and Amalfi, are peaceful at night. This is especially true if you are on a single dock like this one in Amalfi.

Limoncello, naturally!

Amalfi Coast lemons are huge and have thick rinds. This makes them ideal for Limoncello, Italy‚Äôs most famous lemon liqueur. You won’t want to drink it anywhere else after you have had one here on the Amalfi Coast.

Hiking trails along the Amalfi Coast

To hike in the Cinque Terre, you don’t need to travel far. You can also walk along the Amalfi coast to your hearts content! The most well-known is the “Sentiero degli Dei”, or “God’s Trail”. It connects the towns of Agerola and Praiano at an average elevation of 1,650 feet above the sea level. Amazing views like this one with incredible landmarks such as Mt. Vesuvius, Capri!
