What to see and do when visiting the Amalfi Coast...
And let's not even mention the roads. Locals have no qualms zipping around hair-pin bends at break-neck speed, happily passing on double yellow lines - even on blind corners. But hey, what's the good life if you can't live a little! From the smiles on everyone's faces, it would seem that any cares quickly dissipate after taking in the views and enjoying a slower pace of life.
Seafood is fresh and abundant here, which means you'll be able to find many restaurants along the beach serving the catch of the day, which is typically freshly grilled. After a delicious meal, enjoy an ice cold Limoncello (an Italian liqueur made from lemons), which feels remarkably refreshing - especially if you've indulged in a carb-laden meal!
If you fancy trying your hand at whipping up your own Italian delicacies, sign up for one of Al Convento's cookery courses, where you'll learn how to prepare a variety of traditional dishes like Mama used to make.

If you have a skipper's license, you can charter your own boat for a full or half day. For those who aren't as sea savvy, you can hire a boat complete with a skipper, from a variety of companies.
Positano Boats has a great selection of beautiful boats to choose from and will also provide you with a map, so that you can easily navigate your way along the Coast.
As each town along the Coast is as beautiful as the other, it's worth taking the time to stop off at a variety of destinations to see the charms of each area first-hand.
Top Tip: If you want a dining experience fit for Bond, dine at La Conca del Sogno. Accessible only by boat, this stunning restaurant is in a league of it's own. After all, it's all about location, location, location!
For a truly bespoke experience, treat yourself to a pair of luxury handmade sandals at Safari. Located just above Positano's main beach, here you'll find a wealth of supple leather straps and decorative accessories to choose from for the creation of your sandals. At only 40-50 Euros per pair, it's a snip for how luxurious you'll feel. We guarantee you'll be looking for any excuse to show off your beautifully adorned feet!
I love the geometric-patterned ceramics, which feel both modern and sophisticated while maintaining a traditional charm. If you're worried about your luggage weight, there's no need, as they will happily provide international shipping to most destinations
You'll find a wealth of unique (and relatively reasonably priced) accommodations on the Costa Divina website.
For those who want to treat themselves and completely blow the budget, hire a private villa fromBorgo San Michele.
Overall, the Amalfi Coast is an amazing destination for those who are seeking the perfect combination of sun, sea, culture and cuisine, all wrapped up to create one of the most intriguing destinations in the world.
