Take a Romantic Trip on Italy’s Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is a beautiful and renowned stretch of coastline on the southern coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula in the Province of Salerno in Southern Italy. Tourism is the key commercial venture in this area, hence a major employer to  locals, and be rest assured most of the people you meet can communicate in English and will always do their best to help you decrease any language barrier  encountered.

When is it suitable to visit the Amalfi Coast?

Spring is always the best to visit the coast of Amalfi during the months of July and August during the high season, the weather is usually hot then (this makes it a good time for exploring the area) and due to the high number of people visiting the coast there may be a challenge in securing a parking for their vehicles.

It is usually not advisable to visit during fall (especially the month of November) and its raining during the winter hence during those months there is nothing much to enjoy. The Ravello Festival which is usually an annual event takes place in throughout in summer in the town of Ravello. The splendor of Southern Italy’s Amalfi coast is famous and many of the living artists, writers and musicians were inspired by its beauty. The beautiful Isle of Capri immortalised in song, can be seen from the coast.

Some of the areas of interest in the Amalfi coast are:-
Museo Correale
 Touring the Villa Cimbrone
 The Sant’Antonino Festival
 Sagra del Tonno
 Africana Club
Shopping at Antonello della Mura
 Touring Duomo

The delights of an Italian Holiday

The delights of an Italian Holiday

Italian food is one of the most popular and widely adopted cuisines the world over. The joy and I mean the joy of a carefree self-catering holiday is that you can sample the food delights at your leisure.  Italians believe in simplicity and respect for good produce, so some of the most beloved dishes of Italians comprise just a few simple ingredients, carefully selected and served at their prime. Spaghetti bolognese is now so popular that it could almost be classed as our adopted national dish, although an authentic.

Italian version would, in fact, be fettuccine al ragù. Italians were among the first to show us how to appreciate good coffee, use olive oil for cooking rather than as a medicine, embrace garlic, and understand the joys of fresh pasta and antipasto. For Italians, cooking and sharing food is no less than a way of life, whether it is at home with friends, in a humble trattoria or a fine-dining restaurant. Wherever it’s eaten, it’s always based around fresh, seasonal produce, which is the main reason that it is hard to talk about “Italian food” as a single entity.

In fact, Italian food varies widely by region – and even village to village – and according to the time of year. Italians can be fiercely parochial when it comes to food and invariably think of their version of a dish as the best. Many ingredients are used across the country with some more so in certain regions than others. Broadly speaking, northern Italian food centres around butter, meat, potatoes, pork, Parmigiano and other types of cheeses, while southern cooking is more focused on olive oil, tomatoes, eggplant, capers and fresh fish. Some key Ligurian ingredients include fish and seafood, basil (as featured in the popular pesto alla Genovese), prosciutto, sausage, salami, and truffles.  You can find holiday rental accommodation in most of these locations and to be honest they are every bit as exquisite as the food.

But above all, Italians believe in simplicity and respect for good produce, so some of the most beloved dishes of Italians comprise just a few simple ingredients, carefully selected and served at their prime. Cheese and wine are a major part of the cuisine, as is coffee, particularly espresso.
