Amazing spots on the Amalfi coast

Boats On Shore

If you are a devoted social media person, you probably already know that 40% of those under 33 prioritise ‘Instagrammability’ when choosing their next holiday spot. Well, it seems you are up for a timely stroke of luck! The Amalfi Coast in southern Italy is just so stunning, one wonders whether if it is not been set up for social media. Check out our favourite spots and our dos and don’ts to make the most of your road trip.

Be generous, and each time you strike a pose, do it in a different outfit 

You have rented your car (preferably with a large boot space) in Naples. From there, an hour drive heading south will take you to Sorrento. Picture N°1: you, admiring the Vesuvius across the bay. Picture N°2: you, standing on the little balcony outside the Bellevue Syrene hotel. Picture N°3: you, gazing at the city colourful and its vibrant bougainvillea framing your shot.

Don’t shy away from the perfect shot because you are prone to sea-sick 

Next, from Sorrento, head east for 10 miles (16 km) to reach Positano. Then, hop on a boat for the picture-perfect glamorised shot thanks to the colourful landscape as a backdrop. Our advice? Sit on the boat with your back to the camera, so your followers can marvel at the stunningly beautiful town and its cliff-clinging houses.

Never ever miss out on a gorgeous sunset 

Praiano, about 14 miles (23 km) from Sorrento, is a very small but beautiful fishing village filled with pastel coloured cottages, picturesque mazes and steep flight of steps. During the day, walk your way up to Piazza San Gennaro where you can enjoy a sweeping view of Capri. Then, check out one of the coast best sunset spots at La Cala Gavitella, the only beach kissed by the sun until it goes down.

Thank your travel companion for being such a sport

Only 8 miles (13 km) from Praiano, the Furore fjord (the only one in Italy) is a tailor-made Instagram hotspot for your documented adventure. Once you have convinced your boyfriend to follow you down the steep steps, lie down on the sand for a candid shot of your make-up free face and tousled hair.

Sacrifice your beauty sleep for a perfect sunrise

Just 15.5 miles (25 km) from Nocera Inferiore is Ravello, a gorgeous little town perched up high in the hills above the Amalfi Coast. Your #picoftheday absolutely needs to happen at The Terrace of Infinity. Get there in the morning so your followers can moan about the endless turquoise water they can’t swim in.

Be confident enough to exit the picture

End your 79 miles (128 km) road trip in the colourful streets of Vietri Sul Mare, a quaint waterfront small town known for its beautiful earthenware. This time, we recommend you don’t get to feature in the shot. Let each picturesque blue, green, orange ceramic shop be the star of the story.
