This September, join Onward Travel to explore one of the most magical destinations 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. Late September is the most wonderful time of the year to visit, as tourist crowds begin to thin and the temperatures become more moderate but still warm enough to take a dip in the 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.
Over the years Onward Travel has built relationships with local entrepreneurs including a lemon farmer, an artisinal cheesemaker, an archaeologist and a family of restaurateurs. Our contacts have kept us posted on the local situation throughout the pandemic and thankfully the region was never hit hard by coronavirus (maybe it was all that fresh sea air!). Now our Italian friends are eager to see our groups return to Amalfi and we can’t wait to see them again, too!
