THE REAL REASON MILLIONS COME TO ITALY’S AMALFI COAST

THE REAL REASON MILLIONS COME TO ITALY’S AMALFI COAST

As I wrote yesterday, you cannot escape the Amalfi coast – every breathtaking view, every hill, every mountain, every bend on the tortuous roads, every port and harbor and spectacular small cove, every bougainvilla-covered wall or terrace, every tiled roof and patio and church dome – without taking a thousand photos.

Yesterday I offered a slide show of some of the reasons that people travel to Sorrento, Positano and beyond – ice cream, limoncello, amazing cuisine, wonderful leather goods, enticing fruit markets and stunning fashions for all ages.

Today I get serious! Here are a few of my travelblogue © photos of the beauties of this region of God’s unparalleled creation! Someday I will count the photos I’ve taken over years of visits to Sorrento, Positano and Ravello – thousands for sure!

One slide show today is dedicated to just Ravello as it is so spectacular, especially the gardens of the historical Villa Ruffolo!

Enjoy!

I have no idea of the audio link of Andy Williams singing “There’s a Summer Place” will work but here it is!

WHY MILLIONS ARE DRAWN TO ITALY’S AMALFI COAST

WHY MILLIONS ARE DRAWN TO ITALY’S AMALFI COAST

Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Ravello are probably the main reasons why people are drawn to the stunningly beautiful Amalfi Coast. There are smaller but no less exciting towns nearby, up and down the coast, such as Praiano and Sant’Agata, Minori and Maiori, that welcome visitors, many of which are places where Italians have summer homes.

I returned to Rome from the Amalfi Coast last week after five days of both work and vacation with my niece Christie, her husband Bryan and their four wonderful kids – Brogan, 1, Cole, 13, Emory 11 and Cece (Cecilia) 9. More memories, more fun times, more exploring, more relaxing, more terrific meals – and more photos!

You cannot escape the Amalfi coast – every breathtaking view, every hill, every mountain, every bend on the tortuous roads, every port and harbor and spectacular small cove, every bougainvilla-covered wall or terrace, every tiled roof and patio and church dome – without taking a thousand photos.

Today, just for fun, I offer a slide show of many of the reasons that people travel to Sorrento, Positano and beyond.

Tomorrow I will get serious – travelblogue© photos of the beauties of this region of God’s unparalleled creation!
