After leaving the culture-packed city of Rome, I arrived in the colorful oasis of Praiano, a city built on mountains that collide with the sea. For the following few days, I visited Capri and Positano. The Amalfi Coast is stunning. The coastline is covered with pockets of red, orange, and yellow houses that rise halfway up the coastline’s mountainous terrain. The roads swerve and follow the curvature of the coast, creating stunning views of the blue water, rocky beaches, and pastel cities. The people are warm and the food is typical of Italy – pizza, pasta, and gelato.

Amalfi is a mixture of classical California’s coastlines and Hawaii’s mountainous terrain. The air is dry and warm, the sun touches most of the coastline, and the people are very relaxed. I loved taking the local buses to the different coastal towns. It was cool to see all of the stunning views outside of the windows. The Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful places on this Earth. Although it lacks the historical and cultural gems of Rome or Florence, the setting is perfect for relaxing.

This is a photo of the famous Faraglioni, a towering rock formation which juts out from the Mediterranean.  Dolce & Gabbanna filmed their Light Blue Perfume commercial here. On my way to the island of Capri, our boat went by this formation. Capri is a small island off the coast that is a 45 minute ferry from Positano. I’d highly recommend checking out boat or ferry rentals in Positano to explore the area’s hidden beaches and sites! The Blue Grotto was my favorite–it’s a small cave off the coast by gondola. The war appears to be neon blue due to light seeping in from the bottom of the grotto!

The Amalfi Coast’s shoreline is enchanting. The water is crystalline and the shore sports pockets of lush foliage. Vibrant housing complexes, churches, and cobblestone stairs are scattered throughout the city. On the black rock beaches, blue and red fold-down chairs create the perfect ambiance. The sky is blue by day, magenta at sunset, and brimming with stars at night. If you go, you have to try the Limoncello!
