Along the edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula you’ll find a 50-kilometer stretch of coastline called the Amalfi Coast. There are multiple towns that you can stay in and visit, making it a versatile trip destination.
 
In reality, the coastline is rather steep and rocky, providing for a beautiful setting but not the ideal beach vacation. If you do want to hit the shore and would like to avoid crowds, head to Spiagga di Laurito in Positano. This town also has only one street allowing motorized vehicles and plenty of stores to visit.
 
If you’re up for a more enthralling activity, trek over to Sentiero degli Dei or “Trail of the Gods.” The hiking route begins in a mountain village and increases in natural beauty as you walk for about five hours.
 
One of the most popular sites in Amalfi Town is the Duomo, a cathedral known for containing the remains of St. Andrew the Apostle, brought from Constantinople during the Crusades. The Cloister of Paradise inside features more than 100 columns surrounding stone sarcophagi. While in Amalfi Town, also stop by the Paper Museum, located in a 13th-century paper mill, with a guided tour covering the history and process of papermaking, a significant industry for the town.
 
Then escape to Ravello, which offers amazing views and is home to Villa Cimbrone, an 11th century villa with must-see gardens. Ravello is also known for its summer concert series. While you’re in Ravello, try a cooking class with Mamma Agata. She and her daughter offer private cooking lessons in their home that end with a wonderful meal on the terrace. Being on the Amalfi Coast, you’ll also want to treat yourself to a fabulous dining experience at a restaurant such as La Torre in Massa Lubrense.
