Amanda and Tim’s Italy Trip: Amalfi Coast

Categories   Honeymoons

One of the final destinations on our Italian tour were the little towns on the Amalfi Coast! Ravello, Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Capri and Pompeii were on our list. Each had their very own different feel..Ravello was like heaven…a tiny town situated way up high near the sky, with unbelievable views everywhere we went. It also helps that our hotel, Palazzo Sasso, was the absolute perfect spot to start our Ravello experience. Below are some photos taken at the hotel (and the bottom left photo is from Rufolo Gardens, right down the street). We had the BEST service at Palazzo Sasso, the food and drink were outstanding (although a little pricey so we limited ourselves), and the pool area was something out of a dream. Honeymooners…this is your hotel!

Ravello is a romantic town with a very cute square, some shopping and a handful of great restaurants (including Cumpa Cosimo, on Katie’s recommendation, where we went for 3 dinners) as well as some VERY breathtaking views at the gardens. Also, make sure to sip some limoncello…it is made there. And Villa Cimbrone is a MUST!

We had been hearing about Positano for quite some time, so it was fun finally seeing the pastel stacked buildings and the quaint town in person. It was a bit gray when we were there, but no less stunning.

I found a little sandal shop, Nana Positano, where they craft the most beautiful sandals.. and for only 30 euro! I watched as the artisan constructed and chiseled my new cuties. We finished off the day with dinner way, WAY up in the mountains at Il Ritrovo.

Amalfi Coast honeymoon

For our last 2 days on the coast, we stayed in Sorrento and took a day trip to Capri. Sooo glad we did! The speed ferry threw my stomach for a loop, but once we got there the gorgeousness made it all better. I’d recommend spending a majority of your time in Anacapri, a cute little area up the hill a ways. The town of Capri is pretty but quite touristy.

Taking the chairlift up to the top of Mount Solero was one of the most amazing things we did on the whole trip. The views of the water and rock formations of Faraglioni.. ahhh! And the blue color in the photo below was not enhanced.. it is really this blue! We’re kind of sad we didn’t make it down to the Blue Grotto though.. but there is always next time!

Ooh, I absolutely loved Capri! I've been to Sorrento & Pompeii but not made it as far as Ravello just yet so I'm super excited to have a wedding there in May. My European brides are awesome! x

We went there in April for our honeymoon! Capri, Ravello and Amalfi were gorgeous! You can count on alot of amazing views during romantic walks. And the food is the freshest seafood and pasta and wines i have ever had, every little nook of the island is great, highly reccomended.

seriously beautiful photos and I love the sandals!

These photos brought back so many memories! The Blue Grotto is gorgeous. I did the tour and they first bring you out in a medium sized boat. Then you hop into a small boat and they take you through a tiny opening in the rock. Inside the water glows cerulean blue and the driver sings a lovely Italian song. It's a funny and beautiful must-do experience! Hopefully you can get there next time :)

Absolutely stunning pictures! I lived in the Amalfi Coast for 3 years and I can't even describe how much my heart misses it.
