I spent the last weekend in the south of Italy, after I was in the northern part of Italy in January, I arrived in Naples and stayed in Salerno and from there I traveled to Amalfi to experience some of the history and the most amazing view in the world. The experience was very different from the Italian northern experience, from people who are rushing, not smiling and busy looking fashionable, I arrived at the most authentic Italian atmosphere.


The Amalfi Coast (Italian: Costiera Amalfitana) is a stretch of coastline on the northern coast of the Salerno Gulf on the Tyrrhenian Sea, located in the Province of Salerno of southern Italy. Amalfi Road – is one of the most beautiful roads in the world. The town of Amalfi was a kingdom and included kings in ancient times.

If you are in Amalfi, I recommend you go into this amazing Bakery. ANDREA PANSA, I’ve eaten traditional southern desserts there, it’s the most delicious desserts I’ve ever tasted in my life. I don’t remember exactly how called the pastries I liked, one was called crema al Limone – white lemon cream and the other was with peaches, wow.

From Amalfi you can ascend to Ravello town – about a mile after the exit from Amalfi turn left according to the signpost – a sharp left, through a winding and beautiful road, at the entrance to Ravello a paid regulated parking. Looking back, on the left, is the entrance to the 11th-century Villa San Ruffalo that has gardens and an Amalfi Bay view at its feet.


Amalfi is characterized by its mass of lemons; most lemons are used to make limoncello. Limoncello is a typical lemon liqueur from southern Italy. It is sweet, slightly sour and served cold from the freezer, as an after-dinner aperitifFor many years he was the typical drink of southern Italy and in recent years it is even served on the tables of restaurants in Milan in the north. 

The area’s ceramic galleries are just about everywhere, the illustrations of the ceramics are intertwined with the ambiance of Amalfi, with the lemons, mountains and the sea. I have not been able to see all the galleries and factories in the area, if you come, I recommend you invest some time to see it.

Amalfi is one of the most romantic places in the world. I encourage you to come to Amalfi with someone dear to your heart who can experience with you this wonderful experience, pleasant weather, divine view and delicious food.


It is advisable to arrive a little before summer (around March) or towards the end (around September). As from April to August the place become super touristic, since I did not arrive during the bathing season, I did not get immersed in the clear waters of the Amalfi coast but what is certain is that I intend to return.
