Amalfi on High

There are many incredible views to be had on the Amalfi Coast, but one of our favourites is at Casa Angelina. Located just south of Positano, err, or is that east of Positano? Yes, east, which means the sunsets over the Mediterranean are incredible. One last thing, be sure to ask for the chocolate trolley after dinner (following pics)!

Stages we love...

You don't need to love golf to enjoy The Masters, horses aren't your thing, you'll still get a kick out of the Kentucky Derby. Similarly, you don't need to be an opera buff or an Impresario to appreciate the spectacle of these beautiful stages in Italy.

Ravello Festival has a stage with a view - overlooking the Amalfi Coast.

This amphitheatre in fair Verona has been in use since the 1st century. This summer, you can see famous operas; such as Aida, Carmen and Turandot.

Da Adolfo, Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy

We think Da Adolfo is exactly the type of restaurant experience everyone desires to have on vacation. Hidden off in a tiny cove, one takes the restaurant boat 10mns from Positano to Laurito Beach. Upon arrival one discovers a cabana restaurant so unpretentious - its hip!

Wine served by the jug, waiters in bare feet and a menu created this morning chalked on a solitary blackboard.

This is our kind of place.
