My husband and I just returned from our Honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast. It was an amazing vacation and we created some of the best, lifelong memories there.
The area lends itself to intimate, romantic time together and some amazing adventures to share. Every where you go you are accompanied by the view of an endless, blue ocean. The food was flavorful, fresh and fulfilling - everything (mozzerella, tomatoes, lemons, chestnuts, olives, salami) is grown and made in the region - so you can't top the quality and homemade taste.
Perhaps the best part of the trip were the amazing guides - Marilena and Valentina from Overmediterranean tours (www.overmediterranean.it). They are a local, women-owned business. They share the history and expereince of their home with a passion and wisdom that made it extra special. They accompanied us on a hike along the Path of the Gods as well as a tour of Amalfi and Ravello. Eash fillied with stunning views, rich history and amazing art and gardens.
The absolute best part of the trip was the personal visit to a local home, tour of their home and private cooking lessons (along with a chance to eat everything we learned to cook with the family!).
The hotel we stayed in was Hotel Santa Caterina. It was spacious, beautiful and offered unbelievable service.
