Your Guide To The Amalfi Coast

Wednesday, June 3, 2009


The deli owner around the corner from me just got back from his home on the Amalfi Coast where he escapes NYC’s cold, winter months, and my lunches have been all the better for it.

For the rest of you who have to wait for those precious summer holiday months to go yourself, the Independent has the skinny on where to escape the crowds (Atrani and Erchie), where to eat in Positano (Lo Guarracino at Via Positanesi d’America) and where you can go hiking to burn off that spaghetti alle vongole you had for dinner the night before (Castellammare di Stabia on the Bay of Naples — take the cable car to the top of Monte Faito and light out on one of the many trails). Now the trick is figuring out how to stay there for the rest of the year.
