34 Amalfi Coast Pictures That'll Make You Want to Visit ASAP
Two summers ago I went to Positano for the first time and, like many, fell madly in love with this jaw dropping town. We made Dimora del Podesta in Positano our home base and planned on visiting other Amalfi Coast towns but ended up falling so in love with Positano that we never ventured outside (except a day trip to Capri). Ever since it's been a dream of mine to see more of the Amalfi Coast, preferably via scooter because what on earth could possibly be more magical?
Luckily, as I was leaving Positano two years ago I promised a cute local boy I had met that I would be back and in turn made him promise me that when I returned he would take me on a scooter tour of the coast. Fast forward to last month when I made the trek back and spent my Saturday zipping around the coast on the back of a scooter, stopping at every view point to snap a pic or ten, from sunrise until I had to leave for the airport. Here is a photo tour of the most magical day I have ever had!
The Best Tools for Traveling Italy
First let’s talk about planning tools! As a full time traveler with a LOT of experience planning trips, I have a handful of sites and tools that I cannot live without. They save me money, time, and frustration - all of which are very important for me and should be to you, too.
For flights, I use Skyscanner. Skyscanner is great because they find you the cheapest flights by comparing millions of options from airlines and travel agents. Click here to find the best flight deal!
For hotels I always use HotelsCombined, as you will notice in my specific recommendations. I love them because they compare all of the top travel sites in one spot - with no booking fee and no markup. Best price guarenteed! Click here to search HotelsCombined.
When I'm not staying at a hotel, I love Airbnb. When chosen right, it provides a more local experience and you can often get a lot more space for less money. Click here to get $40 off your first stay.
To get from city to city while in Europe, I usually either fly or take a train. For train travel I recommend using Rail Europe, the #1 distributor for European train tickets and rail passes. I like that you can create an account with them which helps keep all of your tickets and info in one central location. Click here to search Rail Europe.
To get around while in city, I recommend walking, using public transit, or Uber if it's available. In many places, like Lisbon for example, Uber is dirt cheap. If you are new to Uber, use code "kbae3" to get your first ride for free. You can also use it on Uber Eats!
For tours, museum tickets, and other activities, I recommend GetYourGuide. They are a trusted site and have lots of unique things to do along with all of the standard touristy activites. Booking everything individually can be a bit of nightmare to keep track of. With GetYourGuide you can create an account to book and manage all of your tickets in one central location. Click here to search GetYourGuide.
Want to stay connected while abroad? I recommend renting a pocket-sized personal WiFi hotspot from Tep! Click here to see the latest prices.
