10 Things To Do While Visiting the Amalfi Coast

This past weekend, my friends and I went on truly one of the most incredible and beautiful trips to the Amalfi Coast. In our three days there, we covered Capri, Anacapri, Positiano and Pompeii. I loved just about everything I did, but if I had to only pick 10 things to do and/or see and/or eat while visiting the Amalfi Coast, these would be them:

  1. Take a boat tour around the island of Capri.
  2. Try the freshly squeezed, freshly made orange-lemon slushy. For those of you really looking to “relax”, make sure to ask for the “special”, with a little splash of booze.
  3. Do a sampling of the different limoncellos from the original town it was invented in.
  4. Design and customize your own pair of beautiful leather sandals - they will make them right in front you!
  5. Take the chairlift to the top of Mt. Solaro. The 13-minute ride up to the top is truly one of the peaceful experiences I’ve had. Don’t forget your camera - you wont want to miss that photo-op!
  6. Take a “topless taxi” back down to the bottom of Capri!
  7. Take a boat tour from Positano.
  8. For those adrenaline seekers-go cliff jumping and swimming through incredible caves.
  9. Visit Vini e Panini for the best panini you will have while you are in Italy. I ordered a Panini on Foccia bread with turkey, salami, goat cheese, pesto, balsamic vinegar, goat cheese, tomato and rocket. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
  10. Take a guided tour through the ruins of Pompeii. I emphasize guided because my friends and I thought we would try and save a few bucks and figure it out on our own…Let’s just say that didn’t work out to well. It’s worth the extra 9 Euros.
