“The Divine” Amalfi Coast
Italy is not just islands. If you are looking for something unique, where a land rich in lemon groves meets the sea and communities clinging to the slope and stunning cliffs, then you have to travel to Amalfi Coast, a few minutes of driving from Naples.
An experience to do is to visit the fishing villages scattered along the coastal road, such as Cetara and Erchie, stop for a paddle on pebbly beaches that can only be reached by steep ladders or from the sea, or have lunch at a beach club. Then, move to Amalfi to visit the enchanting cathedral and have a glass of the sweet “Limoncello”, a typical local liqueur.
