Positano is the first port of call out of Sorrento, and it’s truly sublime: tiered arcades of rose- and honey-coloured houses hover precariously over an iridescent sea, and further investigation reveals cafes and hotels to die for.

This is where we witnessed my friends Amar and Lena Lalvani getting married! Farther around several intervening bends is Amalfi. Check outhttp://www.positanonline.it if you want to learn more about this great town!

Its former status as a supreme naval power that rivalled Pisa and Genoa is evident from its arsenal and imposing duomo. Hairpin bends separate Amalfi from Ravello, which sits like a balcony overlooking the bay. Its duomo has an interesting pulpit with six lions carved at its base, and several villas and their beautiful gardens add to its attractions.
