Think Italy, and Pizzas, Wine and collosal historical monuments come to mind. When we made a plan to visit Italy, we were having a really hard time making an itinerary. Italy has amazing landscapes throughout the country with varied places from South to North Italy. We started our trip from the Amalfi Coast, planning to visit Rome and then Florence later.
On the Amalfi Coast, the best place to stay in terms of budget and overall convenience is Sorrento. We booked an airbnb in Massa Lubrense, 2 kms from Sorrento. Thankfully, we had booked a car, otherwise it would have been an impossibly high drive up and down. It did have a spectacular view though.
We began early morning from Positano, the vertical town. Words fail to describe its beauty, especially before the rush of tourists come flocking in by 9 am. From here, we went to Amalfi via Conca Dei Marini (the Amalfi Duomo is beautiful, but otherwise the town is similar to Positano) and then Ravello.
Ravello was amazingly beautiful, but we spent a lot of time walking, especially upto Villa Cimbrone. The square of Ravello is good to relax in after all that walking, with some great cafes looking out into the cathedral.
Driving through the Amalfi Coast, the heart of Italy's coastal affair, is a superb experience. Especially when one crosses Amalfi and then onwards to Vietri Sul Mare, a quaint town on the edge of Salerno.
