Travel Guide: The Amalfi Coast + Capri

“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.” – John Steinbeck

I have traveled to many beautiful locales in my lifetime, but no place has ever held a candle to the Amalfi Coast. We traveled to the Amalfi Coast in the heat of the summer at the end of July and were able to spend six blissful days exploring the Amalfi Coast and its neighboring Capri. Crystal waves, beautiful villas perched on sheer cliffs and endless amounts of seafood truly make it a dream destination that one can easily get lost in.

Where to Stay

  • Positano
    • Hotel Montemare – Our rooms were bright and extremely spacious with balconies that boasted beautiful ocean views. A generous breakfast spread is included (along with sweeping views of Positano). Make sure to grab pre-dinner drinks at the rooftop bar.
  • Ravello
    • Belmond Hotel Caruso – If budget is of no concern, this hotel is a breathtaking-beautiful and completely splurge-worthy stay.
  • Capri
    • Fuorlovado 40 – We weren’t sure what to expect when we arrived at this boutique hotel, but we were more than pleasantly surprised. Fuorlovado 40 is made up of 8 small suites right off the main square in Capri that are stylish, spacious and modern and feel like you are staying at your own little apartment in the city. The boutique “hotel” is run by a wonderful caretaker named Marco who is at your disposable during your stay to help make reservations, provide recommendations or anything else you may need during your stay!
