小东西1023This is a famous holiday destination in Italy and one of the 50 must-visit tourist destinations recommended by National Geographic magazine. The coastline strung together many resort seaside cities in southern Italy. We just went to the classic ones, not very high mountains, which are very suitable for hiking. Almost all the hiking routes are along the coastline. Lived in Amalfi for three days, hiked to the small town of Ravello on the top of the mountain, and then hiked a famous "path of the gods" to Positano. I feel that every city is suitable for leisure and vacation. Mediterranean, beautiful! Amalfi, beautiful! The Amalfi coastline is very beautiful!
小东西1023Ravello is a popular tourist destination on the Amalfi Coast. We climbed here from the Amalfi Hotel on foot. I thought that the 2.6 km right should be exercised. As a result, the medieval buildings between the cliffs, one turn, one long unsightly step, and another turn, another one, which directly caused my fear in the second half of the hike on the "Path of the Gods" the next day. 2000 steps, squeeze the bus down the mountain. So, don’t hike up the mountain if you live under the mountain. Take the bus up the mountain and go down the mountain. Many villas here are circled to sell tickets, including Villa Rufolo (1270), which Giovanni Boccaccio mentioned in his Decameron. We were so tired from climbing the mountain, we couldn’t afford to spend money to visit the villa. There were many famous artists living in the town, so we brought our own sense of art, walked around, drank ice coffee on the street, and had a one-Michelin star meal by the cliff. ,Very comfortable. PS: That one Michelin star, the stars are for the landscape, the taste is average.
小丸子老可爱Life in a small European town is really exciting, especially in such a beautiful place as Amalfi. I wish I could stop here and let me stay a few more days. It feels like Capri Island is not commercialized here.
门子乀Compared with Capri’s Blue Hole, Grotta dello Smeraldo and Canner reflect the feeling of a hole, and there are few tourists, which can cost five euros. Basically, there are only two or three people in a boat, you can quietly tour, there are surprises at the bottom of the cave, and you will know when you go.
门子乀The villa is built on the mountain, and there is a performance venue that can accommodate hundreds of people. The stands follow the mountain. Not only can you watch the performance, but you can also overlook the famous two domes and a big tree below, as well as the blue sky. Maffei Coast.

Positano is a cliffside village on southern Italy's Amalfi Coast. It's a well-known holiday destination with a pebble beachfront and steep, narrow streets lined with boutiques and cafes. Its Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta features a majolica-tiled dome and a 13th-century Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary. The Sentiero degli Dei hiking trail links Positano to other coastal towns. Spiaggia Grande is the heart of sea edge Positano. 300 meters long, the beach is one of the largest on the Amalfi Coast, and one of the most glamorous too, attracting a fashionable crowd of artists, actors and celebrities.
Those looking for a more peaceful spot in which to bask in the Mediterranean sun will love Positano's Fornillo beach, which can be reached via a coastal path commencing on the Spiaggia Grande. Legend has it that the three islets of Li Galli, just off the shores of Positano and often referred to as the "Sirenuse", were inhabited by Sirens who attempted to seduce with their song all those who sailed nearby.
Among those to have been enchanted by the islets' mysterious beauty, the ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev, who spent the last years of his life here, is, perhaps, the most famous.
Magically suspended between the blue sky and the iridescent colored sea, the Amalfi coast seems to be born from the palette of a painter who wanted to use the warmer color gradients for creating a landscape that enchants the visitor at the first shot, giving thrilling experience and such evocative view to doubt, for a moment, it is real. It is the land where the sweet scent of lemon blossoms harmonizes itself with the most aromatic one of the Mediterranean vegetation and the acrid aroma of saltiness; where the brilliant colors of the majolica domes, bougainvillea and carnations pergolas give an evident colored touch to the typical whitewashed houses, clinging to the last offshoots of the Lattari Mounts that plunge dramatically into the sea. A vertical landscape, in short, characterized by a picturesque labyrinth of stairways and narrow alleys, connecting the two main elements of this landscape: the mountains and the sea. A continuous succession of headlands and inlets, bays and fjords, interspersed with pebbled beaches and rocks on which you can still see the ancient viceregal towers, the first bulwark of the local population against the Saracen attacks. The shift from the sea to mountain is seamless: the mountain sides were terraced over the centuries, shaped by human labor to create flaps of arable land and already compared, during the Renaissance period, to the legendary Hesperides by the Italian writer and naturalist Giambattista Della Porta. All the towns of the Amalfi coast are connected by the scenic SS. 163 road, built in the first half of the XIX century during the Bourbon period and always considered one of the most beautiful road in Italy. Following the natural course of the coastline, the route is full of curves, nestled between the rock and the sea cliffs, giving new and spectacular shots at the exit of every tunnel or hairpin bend.
Ravello is one of the most charming towns on the Amalfi Coast. It offers some of the best views of the famous coastline, with sweeping seascapes and breathtaking scenery. It is, in short, an ideal location. While the origins of Ravello date back to the Roman era, it was the Middle Ages that gave it wealth and status, when the inhabitants were involved in maritime trade with the Orient. The newly enriched families of that age built castles, villas, churches and civic buildings to show off their wealth and to rival their richer, influential neighbor town of Amalfi. Amalfitans gave Ravello the name, "Rebellum" (rebel).
The town's villas offer vivid vantage points for the views. Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo are famous for their encompassing panoramas. Villa Rufolo inspired the composer Wagner when he wrote his famed opera, Parsifal. Ravello is still known for its musical events, including the Ravello Festival, which is strongly connected to the composer and his symphonies. The town boasts its cultural roots, too; just stroll the alleyways, enjoy the architecture and piazzas to see the town's history and pride at its best.
The Cathedral, dedicated to San Pantaleo, was inaugurated in 1087. The simple facade hides a lovely church with a grand 12th century entry doors and a pulpit plopped atop six spiral columns. The cathedral's museum houses sculpture and art dating back to Roman and Medieval times. Ravello is home to the fascinating little Coral Museum of Ravello, a showcase of craftsmanship in the art of the coral jewelry and decoration. The town is noted for its devotional chapels and votives that are attached to and painted on walls all over the city. Look for them as you wander the streets.
A recommended tour is to take the bus uphill, then walk back downhill to Amalfi. There's a nice path alongside a stream between Amalfi and Ravello and it is well signed on the maps. Have lunch in Ravello and then walk off the pasta on the pathway!
The Padula Charterhouse - whose full name in Italian is Certosa di San Lorenzo di Padula - was built in Campania, in the province of Salerno, with a fundamental harmony between big and small.
The existential dimension of the friars who lived there was reduced to the minimum, as they spent almost all their time inside their cells (twenty-four of which are intact to this day), praying, studying and meditating.
Everything else was exaggerated, starting from the very structure of the baroque building - with over 50,000 square meters making it one of the largest monasteries in Italy, opening out to considerable wide open spaces. The cloister, among the most spacious in Europe, is about 12,000 square meters and is encircled by a tiara of 84 columns; the kitchen is where, according to legend, a giant omelette of over one thousand eggs was prepared for Charles V, on whose vast empire “the sun never set”; the cellars were full of huge barrels of the wine produced by the monks; and finally the library, accessed by climbing an expansive spiral staircase…
A harmony between big and small that was recognized even by the UNESCO, which has declared the Padula Charterhouse a World Heritage Site.
I love coming back to Italy. Out last trip was to Venice and Positano and I was mind blown by how stunning both locations were.
My favourite things to do included chilling on Spiagia Beach, wandering around and searching for the best pizza places, sipping wine by the canal and stopping by gems like Fiordo di Furore. My favourite place to stay was Villa Franca in Positano.
Set at the top of the Amalfi Coast, Ravello boasts some of the most stunning views in Italy. The small town is not accessible by vehicles and features cute cobblestone streets, historical architecture, and amazing cliff side views. We loved the local specialties including Limoncello, abundant seafood, and indulgent pizzas and couldn't get enough of the quaint and inviting eateries. Take the long walk up to Villa Cimbrone to snap an Instagram shot at the famous viewpoint overlooking the picturesque, clear blue coast. On the way down stop at a cute cafe for fragrant espresso and flaky pastry. The local bus was easy and accessible from the entrance of the town which we took to explore the rest of the coast. A perfect romantic getaway or family trip at one of Italy's most beautiful towns.
Head to the town of Furore, located in the Campania region of Italy, right in the middle of the Amalfi Coast, where a gigantic fjord opens to create its very own hidden beach!

Postitano is one of the most Instagram worthy destinations. I don’t wonder why it’s so popular. The view is just breathtaking.
