Since June it has been possible for citizens of several European Union countries to travel to Italy following the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, so I decided to venture south from my Rome base to visit and verify the situation at the famous Amalfi Coast. There were far fewer tourists there than usual, and it was a rare chance to see the popular b...

La Costiera Amalfitana è un tratto di costa della Campania, a sud della Penisola Sorrentina, lungo la quale sorgono vari paesini sul mare, famosi in tutto il mondo come meta turistica d'eccellenza. Andiamo a scoprirne 6: Positano, Furore, Amalfi, Ravello, Cetara e Vietri sul Mare. Positano Usually called “Pusitan” in resident dialect, it was named...

I spent three weeks on the Amalfi Coast to take these photographs – hopping from Sorrento to Praiano, Capri to Positano to shoot the coastline’s most incredible views. It’s pretty hard to take a bad picture of this part of Italy. Strada Statale Amalfitana (the road that winds down the coast) provides some great shots and angles, and I love to jump...

The Amalfi Coast is a marvelous example of a Mediterranean landscape with extraordinary natural and cultural value. Located along the Tyrrhenian coast of southern Italy, just south of Naples, it is an area of great natural beauty. It features steep cliffs and a jagged coast dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored fishing villages. The coastal...

Il Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa, posizionato a picco sul mare tra Amalfi e Positano, è in continua ascesa nelle preferenze internazionali. L’hotel italiano si è distinto ancora nel mondo, vincendo a Barcellona il titolo Hotel of The Year 2020 assegnato dalla Academy of European Hotel Awards. La serata di premiazione, a cui ha partecipato il gen...

It entailed a 50-minute bus trip to Amalfi, a 20-minute wait and then another 30-minute bus trip upwards to a town called Bomerano on the heights that dominate the Amalfi Coast in Italy. From there it’s a bit of guesswork until you reach the sign Via Sentiero degli Dei — Path of the Gods. How could one resist? The track unfolds along ancient trails...

Some places were just made to be photographed. The Amalfi Coast is painted in pastel colors, all little villas and lemon groves and winding cobblestone staircases clinging to steep seaside cliffs. It’s the kind of impossible picturesqueness that doesn’t feel entirely real to anyone who didn’t grow up there. When you’re imagining Italy as a “boot,”...

When traveling to Italy, a mere mention of the Amalfi Coast invokes a dreamlike vision of lemon trees and crystal turquoise waters. Positano is no doubt one of the most recognized and visited islands on earth. Nestled high up in the cliffs, the famous hotel La Sirenuse overlooks right down to the beach. Positano is home to about 4,000 people, but a...

As I sipped strong Italian coffee, the sun played with the clouds against the Neapolitan sky. Breakfast was served on the terrace of our hotel, hemmed in by lemon trees, laden with fruit, which made the experience enjoyable. Now and then a stray sunbeam would light up the huge mosaic dome of the basilica. The sun was in its elements. We had planned...

Why travel to Italy in the fall? The better question is: "Why not?" While the country's peak summer tourism season is over, insiders know that September through the fall is in fact the best time to travel to Italy. "Italy is gorgeous in September," says Fulvio De Bonis, the founder of Imago Artis Travel, a Rome-based company that sells luxury Italy...
