If there’s a bucket list destination that you’ll find on even the most intrepid travelers list, it’s the Amalfi Coast. With its winding roads, surreal views, and picturesque sunsets on the Mediterranean, Amalfi may be one of the most photogenic locations in Italy—which is saying a lot, considering the surrounding competition.
Amalfi is the very definition of la dolce vita. It’s one of the few places on the planet where no matter what your age is, clubbing is always in fashion. And don’t let those 70-year-olds fool you… they’ve got some of the most killer moves you’ve ever seen. Chalk it up to pure, unrivaled experience. The scene at Amalfi hasn’t changed for the last 60 years: it’s remained the same, all-encompassing party.
When you’re headed to Amalfi, prepare yourself to let loose—and not just with the fun and the music; your belt will need a bit of loosening, too. It’s Italy, after all, so the food is exactly how you’d expect it to be: ridiculously delectable. Just make sure to wait those 30 minutes before swimming in the hidden grottos (don’t worry, though, you’ve got plenty of places to take in the sun while you wait).
