If there is one place that keeps surprising me with its beauty, cuisine, culture and history, it’s Italy. As much as I hate to admit it because it is so cliche and predictable even: I love Italy. No no no no. This is not coming from a tourist visiting for a week for the first time. I have visited Italy hundreds of times, ruined my waistline (all the time) and pretty much abandoned my Paleo diet which I worked so hard for to tell you a fact: I REALLY LOVE ITALY.
I love its big historical cities and its smaller, unknown – sometimes abandoned – towns equally. And my favorite coastline to date? It has to be the famous Amalfi coast and my recent discovery, the lesser known Cilento coast next to it.
The Amalfi coast and Cilento coast are both part of the province of Salerno in the Campania region. I visited Positano, the most famous town along the Amalfi coast, in 2011 and immediately fell in love. I vowed to come back and explore the area more so I am happy to make that dream a reality this summer.
