Our fling with Italy is coming to an end. This is the last post from here…a sigh of relief I hear from some. I know, let’s see photos of waves! I miss waves too…but this coast is just as seductive.
So you’re a busy person. If you want a 4 day tour of The Amalfi Coast then follow these instructions below, I reckon you can’t go wrong. It’s my short cut guide after a couple of trips (there is so much more I know).
We stay around Praiano. We love it there. Positano is a little hectic and just a 4 min water taxi away.
Day 1 – Hire a self drive 40hp rubber boat and fang to the island of Capri (we use La Sibilia hire Company). You don’t need a boat license, just a car license. They are super relaxed here about that stuff. The back side of the island is mind blowing – swim in caves, crystal clear blue water. Then drive your boat across to Nerone and have lunch at Conca Del Sogno or Lo Scoglio (epic). Alternatively lunch on Capri we rate Il Riccio – all accessible by your little boat.
Day 2 – Hire a motorbike, ride to Amalfi from Positano. Cars don’t fit on these roads. Bikes cut drive time in half and you really live it – wind in the hair and all. One of the most windy scenic roads you will ever drive on. Eat lunch on a cliff edge at Ravello (in the hills).
Day 3 – Get loose at One Fire Beach Club Praiano. ‘Nuf said there. Take water taxi across to Da Adolfo for lunch (must). Dinner at Il Pirata/La Strada/Next2/Chez Black – so many to choose from. Kick on to Africana (night club in cave) if you can’t stop.
Day 4 – Spend a day in busy Positano…shop…drink at Franco’s or Le Sirenuse followed by a fancy dinner at Zass (Il San Pietro)
After all that, you will be a little heavier, happier and spent a truck load of euro – but it’s worth it!
See you in Bondi.
