Manarola

An artist’s palette of Italy; with colourful houses, piled one above each other upon a cliff intertwined with rocky paths, geranium hung balconies and the scent of lemon trees, thyme and rosemary that fills the air. Manarola in person is like nothing you’ve ever imagined.

Positano 

Dramatic, deluxe and most certainly dashing. Set in a vertical panorama of peach, pink and terracotta hues, Positano is the Amalfi coast’s front cover flash. Get yourself a pair of Positano’s handmade leather sandals and linen clothes and you'll fit right into the "Moda Positano".

Sorrento

The people watcher’s paradise, where mountains meet the ocean, and citrus farms lead into deep valleys. Who needs a beach when to the North you have the Amalfi Coast, to the East you have rolling countryside and just offshore the gorgeous Capri.

Portofino

portofino-4839356_960_720

The Italian Riviera fishing village that is known as a resort of the rich and famous. Boutiques, art galleries, cafes and restaurants line the tiny streets of this exclusive little jewel.

Polignano a Mare

Famous throughout the world for three things; cliff diving, stupendous ice-cream, and Domenico Modugno who wrote and sang numerous classic Italian songs. Perched on a 20 meter-high limestone cliff overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic, Polignano a Mare truly lives up to its name and literally could not be any more “at sea”.  

Riomaggiore

The perfect postcard view; multicoloured pastel buildings dotted down a steep ravine to a quaint harbour. From here you can meander down the first section between Riomaggiore and Manarola, known as Via Dell’Amore (Lover's Path).

Amalfi

The pearl in the strand of towns strung along the Amalfi coast; constellations of whitewashed buildings amble up the hillside from the water’s edge, connected by a maze of staircases and narrow alleys.

Atrani

Unspoiled by mass tourism, and a place to experience Italy as it should be; Atrani is one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. Nestled between two cliffs, this idyllic and charming town is a natural amphitheatre right on the sea! Don’t be surprised if you find yourself experiencing an uncanny sense of déjà vu- Atrani’s picturesque streets and exquisite coast have been the ideal location for several films. 

Santa Cesarea Terme

Although not as touristy as other Italian coastal towns, Santa Cesarea Terme popularity amongst Italian local’s themselves makes it that much more authentic. Take a stroll through the woods to the higher side of the town and be rewarded with incredible views of the entire Salento coast.

A city of long lunches and even longer siestas followed by the kaleidoscopic nightlife. Vespas bombing along boulevards and tucked away cafes; Cagliari is a true feast for the nose, eye and soul.
