Instagrammable spots on the Amalfi Coast
The hillside town of Positano is a riot of sunny colours and flowers, with seaside views and a pretty pebble beach. The most popular place to visit along the Amalfi Coast, this is a place you’ll never forget.
2. Capri island
If you’re really lucky, you’ll have time to spend a couple of days out on this island. It is expensive though, so a day trip out from Naples is the best option for most. Climb to the top for lunch and some cracking vistas of the blue waters.
This former 11th-century palace boasts all the worldly luxuries anyone could desire. Marbled hallways lead to rooms brimming with antiques. Paintings by old Renaissance Masters.
But the real jewel in the crown is the pool which has stunning views and which is made for spending a day lounging around.
This charming little lemonade stand and gelato store on the island of Capri is dreamy. There’s huge, fresh citrus fruits hanging from the store and colourful tiles. As well as making for a beautiful photo, it sells refreshing fig and lemon granitas.
5. Blue Grotto
Hop aboard a wooden rowboat to go into this sparkling blue cave, through a meter-high cave mouth. The famous light that illuminates the inside of the cavern is at its strongest between noon and two in the afternoon.
Built in the 13th-century, Villa Rufolo was one of the largest and most expensive villas on the Amalfi Coast. The garden of Villa Rufolo, known as the “Garden of the Soul”, overlooks the village of Ravello and the Amalfi Coastline. It’s a must-visit.
7. Fiordo di Furore
You’ll have the best views of this beautiful ‘fjord’ from the arching high bridge, which is popular with cliff divers.
The path to the beach is closed to the public due to rockfall, so you can only access it via boat. If you do want to drive just take note you’ll have the view, but you won’t be able to get onto the beach.
