As we enter into summer, I’m often asked for my travel destination recommendations for Italy. So, with my travel agent hat on, if I were to choose anywhere in Italy to head to for a summer vacation, I would choose the Amalfi Coast. Have you been there?
I wholeheartedly recommend spending time embracing this extraordinary part of Italy. The coastline is mesmerising – an aquamarine stretch of paradise with breathtaking cliffs cascading into the sparkling waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. There are pastel-hued villages dotted along the rugged coastline, each offering a unique blend of history, culture and Mediterranean allure. From the world-renowned town of Positano with its romantic connotations to the historic town of Amalfi and its magnificent Duomo, the Amalfi coast truly captures the essence of the uniquely Italian dolce vita.
But don’t just take my word for it – book a vacation there if you can and let me know what you think! Of course, I adore Sicily too and there are so many other amazing destinations in Italy to visit, but time is short to mention them all this month!
Speaking of the holiday season, did you know that June is National Ice Cream Month? As an Italian, I absolutely adore gelato. Do you know the difference between gelato and ice cream?
Whilst ice cream and gelato may seem similar, they have their delicious differences. Gelato offers a velvety smooth texture and intense flavours that will transport your tastebuds straight to Italy! With less air churned into it, gelato is denser and creamier than ice cream. Maybe this June you could double your frozen treat fun by savouring both ice cream and gelato and let your taste buds decide which creamy delight reigns supreme!
