In the late spring, join Onward Travel to explore one of the most magical places there is… the absolutely enchanting Amalfi Coast in Italy’s central Campania region.
This sparkling destination has long attracted the well heeled and glamorous along with the creative and adventurous. May is a wonderful time of the year to visit, as tourist crowds have yet to pick up, lemons are ripe in the trees, and the temperatures are still relatively moderate but it’s become warm enough that you’ll want to take a dip in the gleaming, blue Tyrrhenian Sea.
Many settlements along the coast have been in continuous existence since the 10th century, and today the entire coastline is designated a UNESCO World Heritage “cultural landscape.” It’s true that the dramatic landscape here is one that will forever stay lovingly etched in your memory, and every experience is elevated by the soaring cliffs and vistas stretching infinitely ahead.
Of course it’s not just the landscape that takes us to Amalfi. The food here is phenomenal as well, with fresh seafood and giant local lemons taking center stage. And the history is incredible – we’ll be able to trace the ancient past of these coastal settlements. The Amalfi Coast is a treat in every way there is.
