Spend your summer on the Amalfi Coast
Thinking about a trip to the dazzling Amalfi Coast? You might be surprised what a great home base a villa can provide - and our Italy Villa Specialists Suzanne, Jean and Bill are here to chat options with you. Plus, our editor Heather shares her picks for what to do and where to eat! 
 
WHERE TO EAT:
Lunch Options
On the Amalfi Coast, lunch is the main event. Most restaurants have a beach club component, which allows you to eat, then spend the afternoon sunbathing and swimming. Here are our picks:
ALSO CONSIDER...
A hike to the lighthouse in Capri followed by lunch at Lido del Faro...A boat ride over to hippie beach spot Da Adolfo in Positano - try the grilled mozzarella...Fresh juices and smoothies (pasta detox) at Positano's Casa e Bottega...
 
WHERE TO EAT:
Dinner Options
After a long day of Apersol Spritzes and sun, sometimes the best way to wind down is having a candlelit dinner at home, prepared by your villa's chef (the norm in Italy). If your idea of vacation is venturing out, here are some of our favorites.
DON'T FORGET TO TRY...
Thin crust pizza in the center of Capri square at Aurora...followed by drinks at dancing at Capri "nightclub" Anema e Core...a sensational view and organic cuisine at uber romantic Villa TreVille in Positano...
 
ACTIVITIES
What to Do
Hiking Hiking
On Capri, walk from town to the home of Roman Emperor Tiberius at Villa Jovis (about 1 hour)...to burn off that papardelle, nix the chairlift and hike to Monte Solaro, the highest point in Capri...get your steps in (all 1,800 of them) from Positano to the village of Nocelle...for a true trek, try the Path of Gods...
History and Culture History & Culture
Explore all the grottos (and even swim in them) by renting a boat for the day...see the astounding sights of Pompeii (from Sorrento by train, about 30 minutes)...take in the scents of Augustus Gardens and the architectural design of museum Villa San Michele, both in AnaCapri.
IF SHOPPING COUNTS AS AN ACTIVITY...
For incredible custom and long-lasting cashmere, visit Farella...for your requisite Jackie O hand-made sandals, head to Da Costanzo in Capri's piazaetta...there are similar sandals in Positano at Safari...you'll find colorful ceramics to ship home at Ceramica Assunta...

"The villa was awesome. I went with my in-laws who travel at a very high standard and they were so impressed. We hardly left the villa because it was such a beautiful oasis. The cook was also amazing and so we ate most of our meals at the villa."

"It was a great experience. The views were unbelievable and Positano was a good location for touring the rest of Amalfi, Sorrento, and Capri. The major asset was the terrace and pool area. And the housekeeper was a gem and cooked breakfast every morning which was an unexpected bonus!"
