The beautiful land of limoncello
There’s a reason they named one of the most stunning coastlines in the world after this town: “La Vita e Bella” in Amalfi! It’s also one of the largest towns in the region, so take some time to explore it. Rub shoulders with the Italian elite as you walk the pedestrian streets, ducking into shops and galleries. Drop into a bar and order the drink the region is best known for: limoncello. Make sure when you get it, that its been chilled. Limoncello, like revenge, is best served cold.
Amalfi extends down to the water, and its beaches are always popular with locals and visitors alike. (The Azamara pro-tip: Bring a pair of water shoes if you plan on spending any amount of time down at the lidos. While picturesque, the beaches are rocky, not sandy.)
A trip to Amalfi isn’t complete without hitting the road in a car (ideally a convertible, of course!). We recommend taking in the views from the passenger seats—leave the winding, narrow cliff-side driving to the professionals. Whether you head up towards Positano and Sorrento, or down to Salerno, it will without a doubt be one of the most amazing rides of your life.Download An Explorer Guide +
