Day Trips

Italy's Amalfi Coast is dotted with many lovely towns that are perfect for a day trip or pitstop while cruising down the coast. A few of my favorite's are: Capri, Procida, Ischia, Positano, Sorrento, Ravello, Maori, Amalfi, Praiano, Vietri sul Mare, and Atrani!

Places to eat & drink around Amalfi Coast

Dishes of bread and vegetables with a wine glass and bottle overlooking the water in Italy

Da Paolino Capri (Dinner under the lemon trees, make reservations at least 4 months in advance)

Chez Black Positano for lunch.

Franco’s Bar Positano for apperitivo.

R. Buonocore Capri for gelato
