Plan Your Trip to Amalfi Coast: Best of Amalfi Coast Tourism

By Management

Explore Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is a magnet for honeymooners, artists, and anyone who wants to sample “la dolce vita.” Stretching along the southern side of Italy's Sorrentine Peninsula, the coast dazzles with its dramatic grottos, craggy cliffs, and shimmering bays. Grab a seat on the sea side of a regional bus to soak up views on the jaw-droppingly beautiful route from artsy Positano to Amalfi. Ravello offers some relief from the crowds, plus the stunning Villa Cimbrone, which overlooks the Bay of Salerno. The historic section of Sorrento has winding streets filled with artisans and craftspeople. And speaking of local goods, this area is the leading producer of Limoncello, so do like the locals and have a chilled glass after dinner.

My favourite spots for cocktails with a view

If ever a place was made for drinks with a view, Positano is that place. Even after living in the area for more than 15 years, I still feel like I’m on holiday, especially when I’ve got a cocktail in hand while watching the sunset. These are my go-to spots that serve up drinks just as appealing as the picture-perfect vistas.

  • Il Tridente Cocktail Bar
    No matter where you’re staying in Positano, my top choice for drinks with a dreamy view of the city is Il Tridente Cocktail bar at Hotel Poseidon. The rooftop terrace has comfy lounge chairs and a panoramic vista that’s prettier than a postcard. It’s located a bit above the centre of town, and a chill escape even during the busy season. Sample Campania wines from the extensive wine list.
  • Franco's Bar
    Undeniably the coolest spot for drinks, Franco’s Bar is part of the luxe Le Sirenuse Hotel. When I’m not sipping a crisp Franciacorta, the creative cocktails on the menu don’t disappoint. No bookings, so arrive early to get a coveted table before sunset.
  • Positano Paradise Lounge Bar
    Tucked away on a narrow shop-lined walkway leading down to the beach, Positano Paradise Lounge Bar is a popular bar in the traditional Italian sense. Here you can stop in for coffee, drinks, or desserts all day long. Try the Limoncello Spritz for an Amalfi Coast twist on a classic. A heads up: The outdoor terrace with tables is limited.
  • Da Ferdinando
    Drinks on the beach is a must while in Positano. When I need a break from the buzz of Spiaggia Grande, I follow Via Positanesi d'America, a walkway hugging the cliffside, over to quieter Fornillo beach and grab a table at Da Ferdinando. It’s a casual spot for a seaside Aperol Spritz with great views.
  • Terrazza Cele
    A bit more under the radar in the best way, the Cocktail Bar at the beautiful Hotel Marincanto is my rec if you’re looking for romance. It’s got a secluded vibe steps down from the street and the views of Positano are incredible. It’s only open in the evenings, so get there early then stay for dinner at the Terazza Celè restaurant.
