    The Amalfi Coast is absolutely beautiful. We recommend visiting Praiano and Positano to enjoy the beaches and views. Capri is very popular but seemed more like a tourist trap, wouldn’t recommend. Also, be mindful that there isn’t much “nightlife” in the off season. We ended up calling it a night around 9-10pm every night because everything was closing.

    The Amalfi Coast had long been a desired destination of mine and it did not disappoint. The black sand beaches beside the cliffside community is calm and picturesque. I took a boat to Capri and that was even more gorgeous (if that is possible). Capri was a bit of a tourist fishing town and catered to the day visitors. We went into the Blue Grotto which is a cave under where the water reflects a beautiful blue. It was all in all a great time.

    I always thought that my 1st international trip would be to Italy. The movie Under the Tuscan Sun showed me a part of the world I wasn’t even thinking of. I fell in love with each scene of the movie and just kept saying one day, and when the day finally came it did not disappoint!

    Our 2 week vacation consisted of Venice, Florence, Rome, and the Amalfi Coast.

    We stayed about 20 minutes outside of the island of Venice in a beautiful villa called Villa Barberich. The architecture design inside caught my attention the most and it gave us a scenic view of the city. The island of Venice was a beautiful ball of confusion. Every bridge led you to another small island, little did I know, that the island of Venice was comprised of 118 islands and as lost as we were we probably went over all of them.

    Next stop on our trip was Florence, the place I was looking forward to the most. I honestly could move there, it was like walking through the scenes of Under the Tuscan Sun! I’m from New Orleans, I know a thing or two about food, I was sure, I’d need to add salt/pepper to everything and that was far from the truth! Trattoria Zaza was one of my favorite places to eat at!

    What I enjoyed the most was the endless selections of my 2 favorite dishes, pasta and seafood not to mention wine for only a few euros.

    Villa la maschere-How could you not want to stay at one of the small luxury hotels of the world with views like this?! It’s only downfall was the 40 minute commute into the city of Florence, but I’m not mad at all as it was simply stunning.

    We took a train ride to Pisa to visit the tower while waiting for our Cousin’s wedding to begin, took us approximately 1 hour by train.

    Next up on our tour, was Rome. We visited the Colosseum and Vatican City. Vatican City was definitely something I enjoyed the most. I learned so much from this tour, it wasn’t until then that I learned it was its own country.

    Last on our stop, was the beautiful Amalfi Coast. It was everything any photograph, movie scene could describe. It stole my heart and didnt give it back! I’m actually trying to plan another short trip there now!

    For this portion of the trip, we stayed in Naples, so that we can visit both the Amalfi Coast, and the Isle of Capri. Our hotel was right by the ferry so it was perfect for hopping from city to city.

    Italy tips

    1. Travel by train, each city is no more than 1 to 2 hours away

    2. Ferry, (Naples to Isle of Capri)

    3. No cars are on the island of Venice, expect to do a lot of walking, give yourself time to get places.

    4. Wear comfortable shoes, in each city, you will do a lot of walking.

    5. Bring plenty money, you will shop like you’ve never shopped before.

    6. Be prepared to eat, Italy cuisine is amazing OMG I can’t describe it!

    7. Buy skip the line passes for all excursions, you’ll thank me later.

    I stayed at hotel Marincanto in positano For 3 nights ($605 USD). The views are amazing and you are close to a lot of the restaurants/ the beach and the staff was wonderful. Francos bar is about 5 minutes walking which is a nice vibe with photo op drinks. I enjoyed staying in Positano because there is more to do and in the middle of everything.

    I went to Positano with three of my girlfriends (all brown) and while we definitely had an amazing time, we received mixed treatment when noticing we were the only brown people in an establishment. Our hotel, Villa Fioriento was absolutely amazing and nothing short of hospitable and I highly suggest it. I have noticed, though, that they like many others choose to only repost photos from their White guests. When I went, Positano still hadn’t blown up on Instagram and was a bit cheaper but we still paid around $500 a night for our villa. Around the city we had a mix experience of treatment. We literally got up and walked out of a restaurant without eating due to the discriminatory treatment we received. Unfortunately I didn’t think to get the name of the place but it was one of those things where you’re walking passed and decide to sit down and try it. I will say we had incredible treatment at Chez Black Restaurant, which by the way is Denzel Washington’s favorite restaurant. We were like stars there, the owner and chef came out to our table to chat and they showed us so much love so if you want to take your dollars somewhere you know will appreciate them I highly suggest it! Positano is a breathtaking destination but there are quite a few people there that harbor ill feelings towards brown skin so beware. I still suggest it for a trip though, I would go again in a heartbeat!

    Italy’s Positano on the Amalfi coast was breathtaking with its picturesque cliffside village and famed for the colourful houses and buildings. Path of Gods is one of Amalfi coasts main hiking trails this mountain ridge sits high above the sea and gives you a great view of the region. The overook is also a prime location to get a phenomenal view of almost the whole town. The main hike is about 6.5km long, it can be quite difficult getting around the town so I always had to make sure I had a bottle of water and comfortable shoes with me.

    Despite receiving advice to ride a bus tour through the Amalfi Coast, we decided to rent a car to ensure our experience was on our own time. The downside to this decision was not finding parking anywhere. none. zilch, not going to happen. unless maybe you wake up in the middle of the night and park near where you plan to spend the day. Hungry, we decided to just pull into the valet of the next hotel we came across which happened to be the 5-Star rated Il San Pietro di Positano. l asked if they had a restaurant and the attendant’s response was “yes the best!” Situated cliff-side in Positano, this gorgeous Michelin starred restaurant named Zass features jaw-dropping ocean views and and the most elegant ambiance I have ever seen. The service was phenomenal, we were only a table of two yet we probably had four servers attending to every need like we were royalty. We learned the hotel has been occupied by many celebrities and others in high places, which is understandable due to its hefty price tag of over $1,000/night. The exact names have slipped my mind, however, I ordered a delicious fish entree while my boyfriend enjoyed a plate of gourmet pasta. The price definitely reflects the fine-dining experience as we paid around $200. Aside from the unrivaled experience, the remarkable view makes the luxe price all worth it. After your meal I suggest heading out onto the terrace which overlooks the mountains, sparkling ocean and city of Positano.

    One of the most picturesque European destinations I’ve visited. In total, I would recommend 5 days; one day for travel, one day for the beach and other activities, one day for tours, one free day and finally the last day to get back to the airport. If you plan to stay somewhere on the Amalfi Coast, you will only need a car two times during your trip (getting to your hotel from Naples or Rome and getting to the airport). As the city is built upon a hillside, everything is within walking distance and the streets are very narrow. My advice would be to take a taxi to your hotel and renting a scooter once you get there if you’re not up for walking. In Positano, there are two main beaches. Fornillo and Spiaggia Grande. Fornillo, the smaller of the two is quiet and suitable for relaxing without the masses. Spiaggia Grande, which is the most popular of the two, is the bustling favorite. Tons of people. Several places to eat including the famous (Chez Black) and the famous backdrop of the multicolor hillside structures makes this the favorite for pictures as well. This will also most likely be the pickup destination if you schedule a boat tour. If you plan to drink, it’s far cheaper to purchase alcohol and or wine from the local stores than a bar but if you would like to enjoy a drink with a view Franco’s Bar is one of the best to visit. Fair warning, the line to get in may test your patience but that is how popular the view is. I would definitely recommend a boat tour of the coast line. There is so much history tied to the beauty and plenty of perfect opportunities for photos. Boat tour options are typically 4 hours or 8 hours. You could also request a bottle of champagne(don’t forget to take your bottle once the tour is over). Night time dining may be tricky as a lot of first time visitors want to look nice going to the restaurants but you’ll see the dress code is primarily linen and comfortable shoes for men while women wear dresses and flats or sandals. Overall, I think it is a great destination for history, romance, local food and nightlife.

    I know it’s almost a must to take a private boat or ferry when visiting the almafi coast.. but I kid u not taking the scooter may have been my favorite route to the coast .. literally riding along the coast is the most amazing views you could see and taking stops along the way is almost a true must!

    I personally use Rome2rio to navigate how I want to gauge my trip it gives you many options for taking routes and gives u prices as well

    I would take the ferry to Sorrento from Naples to get that view then rent a scooter along the coast to Positano if you got days stay a night at each if possible

    Traveling While Black

    I recently went on a trip to Italy with three of my friends where we visited multiple cities and visiting the Amalfi Coast was my favorite part! We took a private car service (Rainbow Limos) from the Naples train station to our hotel in Positano. Which I highly recommend for a peace of mind instead of the public transportation option. I highly recommend looking at hotels way in advance. We booked our hotel in early March for a May trip and most of the hotels were completely sold out for the summer season. We stayed at Hotel Dimora Fornillo which is a cute small hotel. There was breakfast every morning and our bedroom suite had a beautiful view. The employees were very nice and friendly. There were a good amount of steps to get to the hotel from the main road and from the beach but it wasn’t bad and very doable. There are a lot of steps in Positano since it is on a hill. So I don’t recommend going if you’re pregnant, elderly, or have any issues with a lot of walking. Also make sure to wear comfortable shoes. I wore sandals from Cole Haan with the Grand.0S cushioning for comfort but they were also cute. Positano and Capri are also known for their custom Italian leather sandals. I got three pairs made and each were around 60 euros. They fit the shoe to your foot and you pick out the style and colors. They make it right there for you and make sure each strap perfectly fits. My favorite pair was from Safari Positano which is located right near the Spiaggia Grande (the main beach). They take credit cards even American Express. Every place in Positano and Capri was Amex friendly which wasn’t the case for the rest of Italy.

    While in Positano we took a ferry to Capri and in Capri we did a boat tour around the island. It was beautiful and amazing. I highly recommend the boat tour around Capri with Gianni’s Boat. They were so nice and did a wonderful job of explaining the history of Capri. They are also really good photographers so you will get the perfect Instagram picture. We did the tour for 3 hours which felt so short, I definitely recommend a longer tour. There was a bottle of wine on the boat and Gianni’s mother makes lunch for you which was homemade pasta with fresh ingredients from her garden. It was the best meal I had in Italy. The boat and ferry are can be rocky so if you are prone to motion sickness or sea sickness I highly recommend taking Dramamine in advance if needed or bringing just in case.

    For our beach day in Positano, we chose to pay for the L’incanto beach club which was 25 euros for a beach chair and umbrella in the front row. Our hotel provided free towels so we didn’t have to worry about paying the 5 euros to rent one. It was definitely worth paying for the beach club because it was separated from the public beach and it included restrooms which is always important since public restrooms aren’t free. Also the sand is rocky so it was nice to have a beach chair instead of laying on a towel. We were also able to order food and drinks from our seats. The other beach club option near Spiaggia Grande is Scogliera which is expensive and further away from the popular colorful view of Positano but definitely more private.

    We ate at two restaurants while we were in Positano; Next2 and Ristorante Le Tre Sorelle. Next2 was further away from the beach on the main road, I recommend the Conchiglione which is stuffed shells. Le Tre Sorelle is right near the beach, I recommend paccheri with zucchini and pecorino cheese or the gnocchi alla sorrentina. Everyone recommended Da Vincenzo but we weren’t able to get a reservation, definitely make reservations in advance for all of the restaurants.

    Positano is definitely a place I can visit often. Most of the tourists are American especially couples on their honeymoon. People did find it weird that four girls in their mid-twenties were there for a girls trip but it is definitely a great place for a relaxing girls trip. The people were nice, it was beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. Three days was definitely not enough time, next time I’m definitely staying for at least a week.

    The Amalfi Coast is a little hard and expensive to get to but its totally worth it. 7 of my friends and I descended on Praiano for 5 days. It was my 30th birthday so our itinerary included as much as possible.

    Most of my friends arrived in Salerno around the same time and took a hired van to Praiano, which is midway between Positano (the more popular town on the coast) and Amalfi. The cost was about $150 and took about an hour and a half. Because of cost, we stayed in Praiano at Maresca Hotel which was about $230/night. The cost included breakfast every morning. A number of hotels included board (3 meals a day) or half board (breakfast and lunch or dinner). Food on the coast like most of Italy included pasta and pizza but the coast offered more seafood options.

    Once on the coast, it’s fairly easy to get around. Italy is very protective of their taxis and as such there are no rode sharing options. Taxi rates are fixed and flat based on beginning and end locations and somewhat expensive. It’s cheaper and more efficient to take the buses which travel regularly between the cities of the coast and cost between 1 and 5 euro depending on where you are going.

    Regarding activities, wine tours on the coast cost about €120 pp, chartering of a boat for the day to Capri cost about €800, and the limoncello factory tour in Praiaino cost €5 pp.

    2 things worth doing while on the coast are hiking the path of the gods (free and totally worth it. The view are amazing and the hike is worth it; avoid the stairs down if you can at Nocelle, it takes forever and is murder on the knees… not sure how else to get down though) and get a pair of sandals made at Artigianato Rallo in Positano (you can designed it yourself or chose a design off the wall; Sandals run around €65 to €80 and if you are lucky and they arent too busy, they will make them in front of you! It was such an amazing experience).

    All in all the views alone are worth it! Everything else is an added bonus!!

    Well, where to I being. Sorrento, Positano, and Amalfi are the best. My advice is to go in the Summer. I went in August and partied it up at Music On The Rocks, and bumped into Condola Rashad in the bathroom. Of all places. Lol She told me Positano is the place to party. Food is amazing, and the Italians know how to keep folks on their toes. ? The beaches are not the best, however, but it’s still a good time. You can also just take a ferry to Capri (it’s amazing) ? Also, try heading to Ravello and see the Villa Cimbrone’s Infinity Terrace. It’s stunning- oh amd take the bus up there. It’s so damn hilly. Lol Actually, allot Amalfi is hilly, so brace yourself. Lol

    Amalfi was amazing. So much to see and to do. Food was amazing. It can be pricey. I stayed in a B&B in amalfi for two days and then took a train and stayed at a B&B in Sorrento for two nights. The only complaint is driving on those tiny roads can be dangerous. I’m definitely going to visit again.

    By far my favourite places in Italy remain Capri, Sorrento and the coast. If you want a vacation that includes a ton of relaxation, those are the places to go. We stayed at the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori and use that as our base for travelling around. We also spent a couple nights in Capri, which is accessible quickly by 40 min boat ride and ferries run frequently throughout the day. Grand Hotel has the best Risotto I’ve ever had in my life and its presented to you in a parmesan cup. We also walked to the city centre which has the best gelato and fresh potato fries. There’s numerous shops around, all of which are great so feel free to stop in any. The best restaurant we went to in capri was Villa Margherita, Ristorante da Gemma and Buonocore Gelateria. If you decide to stop on the Island of Capri, take the 5 euro train ride up to the city centre to check out jewellery, ice cream and amazing linen. Be careful though, the prices are steep! :)

    Out of all my travels in 2018, the beautiful
    Amalfi Coast would be my favorite. One of my best advice/recommendations is to take a private boat ride along the coast. Having a private boat allows you to plan your own itinerary and have the experience more personalized and tailored to you and your group.It was $800 for the boat ride. And the name is Restart Boat for the company I used. The tour lasted from 10-5. If you cannot do the private boat ride along the coast then certainly opt for the group boat tour that caters to 12-15 ppl. I’ve read that you don’t see or experience the beauty of the Amalfi Coast until you’re on the water sailing it and I couldn’t agree more.

    The Amalfi Coast was completely surreal to me, it’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve been. The drive up the mountain is terrifying and please believe your life is in the hands of your driver, but the views are breathtaking. It’s so peaceful, the colors of the sea is unlike any I’ve ever seen. The lemon terraces were amazing to see as well. I did not spend a lot of time here, but it’s on my list to revisit for sure.

    AmLfi coast is stunning all in itself. We loved visiting there . We had one delicious meal that stands out at a restaurant waterfront called Chez black! It was amazing I got a pasta dish with a butter lemon cream sauce and tons of seafood in it. Great meal! Lots of celebrities eat there when they travel there. It’s said to be Denzel Washington’s favorite place in the amalfi to eat. His pictures are on the wall .. lol. Also drink limoncello which is their local drink. In Italy they drink it after every meal. Enjoy!

    The Amalfi Coast was easily the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen. The food in Italy was so fresh and delicious there were a lot of good restaurants, my favorite was Max’s but we saw Denzel at Chez Black. I went with my boyfriend and we did a private boat tour to Capri (BlueStar boating company) and it was my favorite experience. We rode around the coast, saw natural rock formations, green gratos, blue gratos, had lunch on the coast. At night, there are two main bars everyone suggested Music on the Rocks and Afrikana. We went to music in the rocks and it was alright, something to do!

    I took the train from Rome to Naples. Took a pizza cooking class in Naples, walked along the waterfront, visited Castle Nuovo, and tried sfogliatella. Boarded Circumvesuviana train from Naples to Pompeii. I hired a guide from the train station for a tour of Pompeii. She was very informative and I was suprised of how intact the artifacts were. I took a train from Pompeii to Sorrento and had a driver to Positano. I stayed at B&B Venus Inn in Positano. I walked along the road, because those steps are awful. There is a bus also. I did day trips to Amalfi (must try the lemon sorbet and street food), Ravello (Villa Rufolo has a beautiful garden), and Capri. I did a small portion of the Path of the Gods Hike. The Amalfi coast was beautiful and relaxing.

    I traveled to the Amalfi coast from Rome. Truly Amazing! Spent one night in Conca Dei Marini which is a small Cliffside town between Amalfi and Positano. My friend and I took a bus To Bomerano To walk the Path of the Gods! This was probably the highlight of my week long trip in Italy! The hike was amazing! It was about a 3.5 hour Hike. We concluded in Nocelle and somehow ended up walking down the stairs to get to Positano. DONT TAKE THE STAIRS!!! It added another 1.5 to our hike and our legs felt like jello after. lol Once we got to Positano the rest of the evening was great. Definitely worth a trip to see!

    Amalfi is one of the more scenic places that I have visited. Although it takes some effort to get to it is well worth the travel time. It isn’t cheap to get around as taxis often charge a lot to take you a short distance so if you are up for it I would recommend taking the hike up to Ravello. We also used the Cita bus to get to the different cities in the area which turned out to be a lifesaver.

    Nothing beats the 5 euro pizza and wine. We spent most of our time on the beach eating pizza or in our little bed and breakfast called Toro Dello Ziro. The homemade breakfast every morning was definitely a favorite part of my trip. During peak season the beaches get very busy so I recommend venturing out to some of the lesser known beaches where the crowds aren’t so thick.

    The restaurant selection is a bit overwhelming but once you find your favorite spot its worth it to keep going back.

    I love, loved, loved Almafi! It is beautiful, breathtaking and romantic. The food is amazing. There are so many cute spots to stop and try the food with some limoncello!!

    It’s really neat to see all the homes nestled into the sides of the mountains and hillside in the various colors. We took a boat from Salerno to Amalfi. It was about 10-20 Euros. The boat ride in itself was a great way to see the coast and get a cool breeze blowing just in case you visit in the warmer months. My friend kind of warned me about taking a bus down to Amalfi as she tends to get carsick from all the winds in the road. It’s pretty steep to get down to Amalfi and it takes a lot longer on a bus versus a boat. The roads are narrow and people stop a lot in the roadway to let pedestrians cross. So, if you’re pressed for time, you might want to take the train into Salerno and then walk to the boat marina and take the boat.

    Once you get to Amalfi, it’s pretty neat. Everything is condensed into the downtown area and you can get gifts and do some shopping or head up past the downtown area to explore a bit more on foot. The town is small so honestly, I felt the few hours we spent there were enough. We just got some gelato and hung out near the beach and watched the sun go down. There is a cool church in the downtown area that appears to be painted gold and reflects the sunlight down the steep steps leading to the church. There is also a little miniature garden that has a full-sized town with miniature houses and gnomes and small plastic people doing business in what appears to be a miniature of the town. If you have more time you can venture more uphill to some of the other restaurants and residences. Otherwise, grab a gelato, take a dip in the water near the shore, and then head back out on the boat to Salerno. It’s a great quick trip if you finish early at Pompeii.

    Have you ever scrolled through Instagram seeing one of those beautiful paradise like pictures with teal clear water, and colorful little homes? If so, you’re most likely looking at pictures of Amalfi. This town is located right on the mountainous coast of Italy and was truly and adventure to get to. They’re are plenty of adventurous things to do such as hiking, boat tours and nature watching. But if you’re not the adventurous type you can relax at the beach and check out the many yummy food spots. Amalfi is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, and the memories I have will last a life time

    Very expensive but worth the visit. If you’re visiting Italy, go to the Amalfi coast. Make sure to plan your transportation to the coast ahead of time. Bring lots of water to stay hydrated as it can be very hot and the Amalfi coast is very hilly.

    The Amalfi coast is just amazing and beautiful (did I say that already?!) It is like stepping inside of a European postcard, except you are really there and experiencing it in all of its glory. I got to the Amalfi coast while on a cruise with NCL and took a private day tour with my husband with a tour company called lovelyamalfitours. We had lunch on the water and visited the different towns including: Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello (the garden at Ravello is a must see! It is heavenly!) I had an amazing time here and it goes down for me as one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen and anyone who visits here, will not regret it!
