Any particular breathtaking spots with views not to miss?

by zalek

Since we are going to have a car which, from many post we read, it might be a bit of a problem (at least in terms of extra costs for parking) I thought that we could ask other tourists if there are some special and extraordinary places with breathtaking views that we could reach thanks to having a car.

I know that most of the coast is like that but perhaps you know of a place that is especailly recommended.

In Amalfi, just past the main Parking area and beach up the street sits the Hotel Luna Convento with the hotel on the left and a bar on the right side of the street near the ocean. Inside the hotel is a restaurant with views of Amalfi and the Coast. Magnificent photo spot to capture the homes and villas on the hillside opposite the Hotel Luna Convento. See their website: http://www.lunahotel.it/ristoranti.aspx

There are some lay-bys (stopping places) along the coast road itself, although you may find them already full of cars.

Re: Any particular breathtaking spots with views not to miss?

If you are coming to Amalfi from Rome of Napoli, I suggest that you take the land route (A3)to Vietri sul Mare, and do the Amalfi drive going back north (or west) back towards Napoli. The reason being that the road is fairly congested and narrow, and most of the tour busses go this way. It is much better to follow the coaches, rather than meeting them head on. This way you can also use the tour coaches as a guide as to where to stop for the best views.

If you have a problem with the coaches, remember that the drivers are professional, and know the road much better than you. If there is a tight spot, let the coach drivers manouver around you rahter then you trying to manouver around them. Also you will be on the cliff side rather then on the edge side. Don't get frustrated and just take a deep breath and go with the flow. Good luck and enjoy the ride....d:o)

I'll offer a few ones:

- The most-scenic views of Amalfi are in my view from the road from Amalfi to Agerola. Drive up through the already-mentioned Furore and stop where you like.

- On the Coastal Road, driving from Amalfi to Positano, in Conca dei Marini, an uphill backroad will take you to the San Pancrazio Church. Right across the intersection to the Church, the terrace of Hotel Belvedere offers stunning views of Amalfi and the Coast. Make a stop and ask the courtesy of letting you through.

- Further down the road, entering Praiano, take a the road on the left taking to the beach called "La Praia".

- One entered Praiano, the village center - just along the road - has also beautiful views over Positano.

- When visiting Ravello, make a detour to Scala and look for the little square with church overlooking the sea called "Minuta". In the night hours is a very quite and romantic place to enjoy the view.

Wherever you drive, be careful where you park ... Parking-tickets are a main source of income for all villages of the Amalfi Coast.

Enjoy your travel!

Travel Tips for Amalfi

brief travelogue from Amalfi coast

by docmanic

We have gone there now, and returned. I wrote a travelogue which all my friends either loved, or they lied about it. I placed it on my website, and hope someone may draw a benefit from it. The segment about Amalfi coast is about 1/2 way down. The entire article takes about 10 minutes to read.

Bring a good pair of walking shoes

by aukahkay

The roads in Amalfi and in all the villages in the Amalfi Coast are cobblestoned. They are steep, narrow and winding. Wear a well padded pair of shoes for the long and arduous walks uphill. Slippers and sandals cannot provide a proper grip on the cobblestoned roads and can result in very sore feet.

Valle dei Mulini

by sandysmith

Pass through the red painted arch, known as della Faenza and you will soon find youself winding up through the valley with its old paper mills and factories. This one in the picture is right at the beginning of the path.

The black & white facade of St Andrews Cathedral.

by K.Knight

The Duomo is situated in the center of the town and was built during the 6th Century to honour St. Andrew the Apostle, whose remains are in a crypt within. Take particular note of the Duomo's Oriental style. The bronze doors were the first in Italy, made from bronze brought back from Constantinople by a local nobleman, Pantaleone di Mauro Comite. The Cathedral is a meeting place for locals and tourists alike and the entire towm seems to extend from this cathedral and plaza.

Drink Limoncello

by longsanborn

You should try a small glass of chilled Limoncello after your meals, and if you like it, you should buy a bottle to bring it home.

Limoncello is a lemon liqueur produced in the south of Italy, mainly in the region around the Gulf of Naples and the coast of Amalfi. It is made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water, and sugar. It is bright yellow in color, sweet and lemony. Limoncello is easy and inexpensive to produce and little time to mature.

It is traditional for the Italians to serve Limoncello chilled as an after-dinner digestivo. Along the Amalfi coast, it is usually served in small ceramic glasses, as the Amalfi coast is a centre of both ceramic and limoncello production. This tradition has carried into other parts of Italy.
