The ideal time of year for a honeymoon on the Amalfi coast is early autumn when the beaches are not so crowded and the weather is still warm, but spring is also a great time to visit, especially for sightseeing.

The 50 kilometres long Amalfi coast is home to picturesque Positano, Ravello and Amalfi where you can find amazing luxury hotels or rent a private villa perched on a steep hill overlooking the sea. There are plenty of scenic beaches along the rugged coastline, and many hotels have exclusive access to the sea. You can also explore the beaches and walking trails on Capri, which is an iconic island only a short boat ride away from the coast. Since it attracts famous people from all parts of the world, it offers deluxe accommodation, fine dining and great shopping, along with the breath-takingly beautiful scenery.

Other must-visit locations nearby include the archaeological sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii, revealing the ruins of ancient towns, which were covered with 20 meters of lava after the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. You should also organise a day trip to Naples where you can taste the authentic flavour of the Pizza Napoletana made with fresh local produce that include San Marzano tomatoes grown on volcanic soil. The city is also known for the finest Italian coffee, gelato and the San Carlo opera house.
