Honeymoon Guide to Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast, a collection of small picturesque towns with sensational views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, secret beaches and shady groves, is a must on any European holiday and here is an insight into which towns to visit on your honeymoon.

Naples, not technically the Amalfi Coast but a great starting point for your journey, is the home of culinary heavyweights in pizza, pasta, gelato and great coffee.  Spend time walking around Naples exploring the architecture, museums, and markets or simply indulge in the fine local food. A must-do is a visit to the most famous pizzeria with only two types of pizza on the menu, Da Michele. And for a romantic dinner, head down to the harbour for a seafood delight. Take a day trip to visit the ruins of Pompeii and wander around this compelling archaeological site as part of a tour or on your own to discover the rich history of this area.

Just south of Naples is Sorrento, which is a great base for exploring the surrounding towns.  Get lost among the narrow streets and alleyways of Old Sorrento where you will discover historical buildings, charming eateries and colourful shopfronts. Photo opps aplenty.

The Isle of Capri is perfect for a day trip or take the opportunity to stay overnight to really experience the history and natural treasures of the island. Take the early ferry from Naples and witness a stunning sunrise as the sky transitions from deep violet to pink to orange to gold. Walk around the towns and try the signature limoncello liqueur or purchase a pair of handcrafted leather sandals. You must check out the Blue Grotto, an oceanic cave accessible only by a small boat with small openings allowing daylight to reflect the limestone walls and create a magical glowing atmosphere.

Positano is the epitome of the Amalfi Coast. With the vertical structures of terracotta, peach and white colours lining the cliffs all the way to the shore, it is a photogenic gem.  Full of restaurants, pebbled beaches, boutique shopping and a village full of character and steep steps, there is something to be found and done by all.

Make your way to the naturally beautiful Ravello, a cultural hotspot luring musicians and artists, making it the perfect place to catch a classical music concert.  Visit the marble Ravello Cathedral with its rare bronze door, one of the few remaining in all of Italy, its elaborate and lavish decorations and belltower which provides an amazing viewpoint of the town.

Start planning, an Amalfi Adventure waits!
