Amalfi, you Beauty! In-Photos

With it’s gravity defying cliff’s, sparkling blue waters and endless lemon groves, Amalfi coast is a spectacular part of the world where every turn is exciting, every nook is beautiful. And what’s most intriguing is that it’s a changing world every few miles. Beyond the glitz and glamour of the bigger towns are the rustic, sleepy villages. Almost around the corner but so far removed in spirit, you wouldn’t imagine two such worlds can exist in this close a proximity. What remains constant though is the dramatic beauty, of a world almost suspended between earth and sky.

In photos, Amalfi coast (unedited)…..


The town square at a village called Atrani. In the afternoon, the locals gathered to have a chat at the square, children and pets in tow.


Our hotel, Villa San Michele – a beautiful family run property with mind blowing views of the mediterranean


View from the balcony – my inclination to switch on the laptop died right here 😀


If you are in Southern Italy, you can’t miss lemons. Believe it or not, some are as large as a football 🙂


Another view of the Amalfi coast


A typical Italian breakfast consists of an assortment of breads and spreads, along with (to die for) fresh orange juice and coffee. Additionally, cereal and yogurt if you like.


A Paranza is a local favorite restaurant in Atrani – this is probably the best ravioli I had in my life


Ravello, a mountainous town in Amalfi coast, known for it’s panoramic views and music festival was our next stop.


The “terrace of infinity” at Ravello – for the best panoramic views of the coast


Amalfi town, as seen from Ravello


The streets in Ravello are full of fluffy, friendly cats. They will chase you and don’t mind petting


Looks like a painting, doesn’t it.


If I had to marry a drink, it would be Limoncello! So you can imagine my excitement at finding this factory in Ravello


Probably the best views of Amalfi can be seen from Villa Cimbrone, now a luxury property whose gardens are open to public


Lunch at Mimi Pizzeria, Ravello


Positano town


Meal at II Teatro, Amalfi. Highlight – pizza with tomato, garlic, olive oil and oregano, no cheese!


Views from our balcony at Casa Cuccaro, Nocelle


The changing colors of sunset – as seen through the alleys of Nocelle

Don’t even remember where I took this one from

I spent 4 days in Amalfi coast and will be sharing more details on places to stay, eat and see. Stay tuned!
