https://www.expedia.com/Amalfi-Coast.d180060.Destination-Travel-Guides The Amalfi Coast stretches for 30 miles along the southern coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula in Southern Italy. There are some places that are so famous and so legendary that even before you set foot there, it feels familiar. The Amalfi Coast or “road of a thousand bends” is one such place. This route has attracted society’s rich and beautiful for thousands of years and inspired some of the world’s greatest artists and writers. The area’s largest city, Amalfi is a great place to begin this legendary journey. A wealthy and powerful town during medieval times, merchants here were amongst the few who had gold coins to spend instead of the barter system used throughout the rest of Italy. Visit the magnificent buildings that reflect that early wealth. Positano is perhaps the best known destination on the coast. A favourite of celebrities since the 1950’s this town glitters with old-world glamour. From Marina Grande Beach, most of the paths lead right to the town centre and the Byzantine Santa Maria Assunta. Visit the Terraces of Infinity, at Villa Combine, a view so stunning that the famous american writer, Gore Vidal called it “the most beautiful view in the world.” Before it’s medieval glory days, the Amalfi Coast’s charms drew the Roman aristocracy. With its endless sunshine, mediterranean colours and a landscape of gripping drama and breathtaking beauty, the Amalfi Coast truly is a legendary destination.

We caught the train in Pompei at Villa dei Misteri and took the Circumvesuviana line all the way down the coast. Our plan for the day? To eat and wander around without much of an itinerary. Since we were visiting just before the holidays, the streets were decked out with all sorts of Christmas decorations. We befriended a few dogs along the way, and then we found a spot to indulge in coffees and pastries. After walking through the town, we started making our way down to the waterfront, more specifically, to Marina Grande. This harbour is line with pastel-coloured buildings, boats bobbing in the water, and lots of seafood restaurants. After walking the length of the marina and browsing through menus, we finally settled on a restaurant for lunch: Zi’Ntonio Mare. Making our way back to town, we also attempted to visit Sorrento Cathedral, but we arrived outside of opening hours so here’s a quick look from the exterior. From there, we continued down some of Sorrento’s pedestrian-friendly side streets, which were lined with small shops and outdoor produce stalls. Limoncello seemed to be by far the most popular souvenir, so if you’re looking for a taste of the famed lemon liqueur, this is a good place to stock up! Our last stop of the day were the Cloisters of San Francis, where there was a small art exhibition taking place. These cloisters are also located in small park with great views of the coastline and the Mediterranean Sea, so we enjoyed the views one last time and then it was time to head back. This is part of our Travel in Italy video series showcasing Italian food, Italian culture and Italian cuisine. Music by Mic-Keys via SoundCloud: goo.gl/ST7XEo
Thinking of travelling to Sorrento? I visited with my family in July 2017, here's a guide of great things you could do... The weather was absolutely perfect while we were there, but not what we are used to. We were surprised that the Italian food wasn't as good as we were expecting, for example I ordered a tomato pasta and literally got raw tomatoes on a bed of pasta covered in oil... WHAT? One tip for drone pilots: the seagulls are crazy there so when flying your drone watch out for them! I had a flock of about 60 all swooping down trying to take out my drone, so stay away from the drone killers! We stayed in the amazing Hotel Miramare: http://www.booking.com/Share-1wZBp7v One day we decided to rent a boat and sail across to Capri, this was definitely the best thing we did. The views were incredible and our captain Damiano told us all about the history of Capri which was interesting. Here's the company we used: https://www.capitanoago.com We also rented kayaks from this company: http://www.kayaksorrento.com MY GEAR: Canon G7X II DJI Mavic Pro GoPro Hero 4 Silver
In this program, we explore Sorrento's back streets, taste traditional Italian food, drive along the dramatic Amalfi Coast to catch some breathtaking scenery, learn the history behind the tourist shops of Amalfi, stroll in the shadow of Greek temples at Paestum, and sail to the Isle of Capri to enter the fabled Blue Grotto. © 2006 Rick Steves' Europe
