EXPLORE THE AMALFI COAST
Some of you may choose to explore the Amalfi Coast after the wedding. Ravello is a very small town & so three days here over the wedding will be more than enough to see it all. Below are some of our favourite spots and recommendations...
This would be number one on our list. Capri, an island in Italy’s Bay of Naples, famed for its stunning landscape, upscale hotels & shopping, from designer fashions to limoncello. We loved it here!
Positano is a beautiful, little beach town, famous for its colorful buildings, excellent restaurants & stunning views, especially at night. If Ravello is for music lovers, Capri for fashion then Positano is for art. It's busier & more crowded than other towns along the coast but equally as special.
The key attraction of Sorrento is that it can offer a variety of holiday experiences to suit different visitors, from rural walks through lemon and olive groves to a choice of excursions by land or sea. Sorrento is a stunning town for pottering around; its pedestrian lanes, little tourist boutiques, limoncello tasting & restaurants all make it an easy & enjoyable place to wander & enjoy the holiday atmosphere.
The best way to explore the Amalfi Coast is by boat providing you with stunning panoramic views. This can be done from Amalfi, Positano, Capri or Sorrento. If there is demand then there is an option for us to hire a boat for the day, explore the whole coast whilst drinking & listening to music.
ONE FIRE BEACH - PRAIANO
At One Fire Beach club, the music is upbeat & the drinks flow, with Aperol Spritz & Rosé the order of the day. This would be a great place to go as you move up the coast especially if you stay in Positano. If enough people are around then we can hire a big area to carry on the party.
The Amalfi Coast has a selection of fine restaurants including five which have been awarded Michelin Star's, one of which you'll experience on our wedding day.
Villa Cimbrone Il Flauto di Pan - Ravello
Rossellinis – Ravello (where we got engaged)
La Sponda – Positano (pictured & a must try)
Caravella – Amalfi
Zass – Positano
Consider the route you are taking & how best to get there.
The drive along the Amalfi coast is amazing so if you plan on touring lots of places then hire a car. That being said, the drive is tight and the car parks charge around £20 a day.
You can get a ferry straight to Capri, Positano or Sorrento from Amalfi (near Ravello).
Consider booking your restaurants well in advance. The best ones get booked early especially in the summer.
Men have to wear long trousers in the evening in many restaurants across the Amalfi coast so do check when booking.
