When it’s time for a break from Italy’s art museums, Roman ruins, and churches filled with Old Masters paintings, sunseekers flock to the Amalfi Coast to hobnob with the glitterati in Positano, drink in the maritime memories of the proud old republic of Amalfi, and get lost in the fragrant hilltop gardens of Ravello. These pastel fishing villages cling to hillsides or lie in deep green valleys, strung along a dramatic coastline of plunging cliffs connected by the breathtaking Amalfi Drive: a gravity-defying thrill ride of a road stretching from the Bay of Naples to the Gulf of Salerno.
Feeling the wind in your hair and spray on your face as you explore the coast by sea and skirt the rocks where the Sirens once tempted Odysseus on your
chartered speedboat or sailboat
Listening to world-class symphonies under the stars in the elaborate gardens of
Ravello’s Villa Rufolo.
Dancing the night away with the nouvelle jet set in a
sea cavern turned discotheque in Positano.
