Driving along the Amalfi Coastline consists of many small surprises on one big stretch of scenic views. Through each steep turn along the cliff side boasts a new view of a magical town. I loved peering out of the window to see what would be next as the way was made from Ravello to Positano. Each town had something new to experience, whether a duomo to venture into, a long shopped filled street, or a tasty treat.
Stopping in Ravello, Amalfi, and Positano, I got to see so much of what the Amalfi Coast has to offer. There were a few points of interest to love in each town.
Giardini di Villa Rufolo- known for cascading gardens
Villa Cimbrone- 11th century villa with famous gardens
Cathedral- dates back to 1806 and is focal point of the town square
Duomo di Sant’Andrea Apostolo- well known cathedral
Valle delle Ferriere- a hike through one of the famous valleys with scenic views and waterfalls
Chiostro del Paradiso- breathtaking Moorish-style cloisters that have 120 marble columns
Cathedral de Amalfi- the cathedral at the center of the main square
Beach club- spend a day on the beach enjoying the sun and water
Montepertuso- a village perched high about the bay with incredible scenic views
Spiaggia del Fornillo- the main beach at the bay of Positano, a great place to sunbathe
Emerald Grotto- take a boat to go explore the famous caves along the coastline
Each town had numerous cafes to explore, yummy gelato stands, and of course samplings of all of the freshest seafood. My suggestion is to get a driver and take a day or two to explore each town and be spontaneous. Whether you want to spend the day on the beach or out on the water exploring the grottos, the Amalfi Coastline is an adventure waiting to happen!
***It is recommended to have a driver take you along the coast as there are twists and turns that can be quite frightening if you are on your own.
