SOUTHERN AMALFI COAST: “Living La Dolce Vita”

When to go: The best time is between June and September, when the weather is still very good and it is not as crowded as in summer.

Why go: Because it’s one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world in which you will feel part of the Dolce Vita. It is a stunning landscape with impressive green mountains, the calm sea and the views of the islands of Capri and Sirenuse in the background. Forget the diet, just think of eating, everything is just delicious!

Getting there: Flying to Naples, there are daily direct flights with Iberia. Then you have to drive for about an hour and a half as despite being only 50km from the airport, the coastal road is narrow and winding.

What to see: I recommend renting a car, if possible a small convertible, to enjoy the scenery of the sea looking on to the cliffs in one of the most enjoyable roads to drive. You can also rent a classic Italian vintage car such as a Ferrari or an Alfa Romeo.

You can stop at different beaches and towns without missing:


Positano: A village built on the extremely steep slope of the shore with a fishing harbor below. The streets are narrow and steep, full of stairs, which convey a typically Italian scent. It has many shops and restaurants. I recommend you to go at dusk because during the day there are cruises stopping and it is full of tourists.


Ravello: It is a beautiful mountain village. It has a breathtaking view of the green hills and the sea beyond. Wander through its cobbled streets and between traditional Italian architecture. Well known characters such as Wagner, Greta Garbo or Escher have lived here. Be sure to visit their Roman houses “Villa Rufulo” of 1270 and “Bonadies”, the Duomo and of course the legendary Hotel Caruso.
Amalfi: Take a short walk to look at it, it will only take you about 20 minutes.
Where to stay:

Hotel Casa Angelina: ($ $ $) Nestled on a cliff in Praiano (between Positano and Amalfi), it has the best views of the coast, the town of Positano and the islands.

It is the only modern hotel on the coast, and was renovated just seven years ago. It is decorated in a sleek black and a collection of art pieces of Murano glass that put a touch of color.
It does not have its own beach but you have free access to a beach club just below.
I recommend you choose the room on the fourth floor with a terrace as it is one of the best within the hotel.
They have taken care of every detail and will make your stay a dream come true.
If you stay, go to dinner at its restaurant “A Piano nel Cielo” from where you can also enjoy the magnificent views.

Hotel Caruso: ($ $ $ $) it is the best hotel on the coast, elegant, classy and with impeccable service. It is a XXI century palace amid Ravello with beautiful gardens and spectacular views.
I recommend you ask for one of the rooms overlooking the sea.
Its restaurant Belvedere is ideal for a romantic dinner. It is only for guests, and you can enjoy dining by the poolside, an “infinity pool” that is one of the most beautiful in the world. Everything they serve is homemade, including their sweets, which are delightful. Do not miss their Caprese cake!!

Hotel San Pietro: ($ $ $ $) Located between Positano Praino, it bears the name of the chapel of San Pietro which is now part of the hotel entrance. It has an absolute Dolce Vita atmosphere, terraces with beautiful views and a really cool restaurant with live music played at dinner time. I recommend you dine at “Carlino” (although, beware, they only serve until 10 pm). The food is fantastic and thus it is a Relais & Chateaux hotel.

Where to eat: (in addition to the ones already mentioned within the hotels)
Don Alfonso dal 1890: ($ $ $ $) Probably one of the best Italian restaurants in the world with two Michelin stars in Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi (next to Positano).
The Sponda: ($ $ $) in Sirenuse Hotel in Positano with a Michelin star.
Rossellinis: ($ $ $) in hotel Palazzo Sasso in Ravello and two Michelin stars.
Taberna del Leone: ($$) Do not trust appearances, despite being a road tavern, it is very well known all along the coast. The food is pretty good and the atmosphere is very friendly.

Do not miss:

– To rent a Riva and visit the bays and islands of Capri and Sirenuse.
– Venchi Chocolates: a classic.
– The Borsalino hats.
– The mozzarella di buffala
– The zucchini flowers
– The Italian ice-creams


– Flat sandals that are tailor made by artisan shoemakers.
– The Missoni Positano shop
– Carthusia perfumes
– A cappuccino
– Its lemon trees, lemon fruit, lemon liquor, candles, perfumes, desserts and everything you can imagine.

    locations and free trade deals. As it turns out, this weak spot has performed a significant role in the deterioration of the U.S.
    manufacturing sector.
