Wanderlust Wednesday: Amalfi Coast Edition

There is no place like the Amalfi Coast. Amalfi was the first of the Four Maritime Republics of Italy, which is located in the Campania region.

The SS163 highway, which stretches along 13 seaside coastal towns is known for being one of the most scenic drives in the world. The best time to visit the Amalfi Coast is between May and October.

At the center of the main square in Amalfi is the intricate Cathedral of St. Andrew, which was built in the 1200s! This cathedral has an intense staircase, bell-tower in Arab-Norman style and a delightful Cloister of Paradise.

Seafood is popular in this area, especially tuna! Cetara, a fishing village in the Amalfi Coast even has its own tuna festival!

Sorrento is a charming town worth visiting. Although Sorrento lacks beaches, it sells well known lacework and ceramics that you'll definitely want to purchase for a souvenir. Make room in your suitcases!

Limoncello is a must when you're in Sorrento because it was invented here! The bright, fresh lemon rinds are grown in Sorrento. Have a cup of limoncello after your dinner. I'm craving pasta pasta at the moment.
