The 5 Best Restaurants in Amalfi (plus one in Atrani)

Amalfi Coast restaurants, Amalfi Untour
The Amalfi Coast is a place of dramatic beauty, of pastel villages built into cliffs and hillsides overlooking sandy beaches and shining sea. Anyone who has taken our Amalfi Coast Untour will tell you about its natural beauty.
 
But one thing that surprises some travelers to the region is the quality of the local cuisine! In southern Italy, fresh vegetables are abundant and the basis of lots of local dishes. Add the crisp wines of Campania, the abundance of seafood and citrus, and the flair of Neapolitan cuisine, and you get the picture.
 
Come for the beauty, stay for the food.

Your Italian Bucket List: See These 12 Places Before You Die

on Tue, 06/02/2015 - 21:27
Montalcino on the Tuscany Untour

So much to see and do in Italy. Of course you will likely start with Venice, Florence and Rome, what we knowlingly call The Big Three. (Wink. Nudge.) You may have gotten to Tuscany or the Amalfi Coast. If you're lucky (and/or savvy), you've dug more deeply into these places. Or you've ventured a little further afield. Check out our Italian Bucket List, places you really shouldn't miss. Some are little towns that might not make the main itinerary. Some are special neighborhoods in our favorite popular cities. Others are big cities in their own right, but ones that tourists tent to overlook. Either way, we hope there are some wonderful places on our list that you might not have considered or even heard of.

Untourist Ron Anderson captures a great vineyard shot from his Tuscany Untour

As you may know, we had the inaugural Unny Awards just recently. These awards are our way of recognizing the regions which have welcomed Untours all these years.

The Unnies are fun and lighthearted and that's how we like things around here.

We like to think of them as the Oscars® for Untours, though I admit we can't top the touching, heartfelt acceptance speech by Lupita Nyong'o last night.

Here come the Unny Awards!

Untours hosts the first annual Unny Awards, a celebration of the regions it serves

Since I started working here way back in 2011, the Untours regions have been calling on me to give them some attention. Actually, not just attention, but distinction.

Now, I know they are all big enough to speak for themselves. They don't need you to tell them they're great; we all already know that.

What they really need is for you tell them where they excel.

That's why today, a week before the Oscars®, we're introducing the Unny Awards—a way for you to help us celebrate our regions and give them the recognition they truly deserve.

Kathy & George Patience (Untourists of the Week) love, love, love Italy

Kathy & George Patience

You are independent to do tours, shopping, all on your own; but, have the security of someone to call, or a personal contact right in the village. On most Untours you have a car. However, on the Amalfi Coast, we used public transportation. At first, this seemed a challenge; but many people there spoke English & were very helpful in getting us where we needed to go. The pre-planned itineraries helped us organize our days. We had many wonderful day trips, including a shopping trip to Sorrento for my husband's new leather jacket...a beloved souvenir & special memory for him!

Whitmel....making another memory

1. Tell us a little bit about your most recent Untour.

We took a three week tour of Italy, in this order: Amalfi, Umbria and Tuscany. Our apartment in Amalfi was on the waterfront, with a balcony overlooking a delightfully Italianate traffic circle filled with life and a view of the sea. In Umbria, we were in a cottage rebuilt from an old hay barn and near the delightful town of Spello. In Tuscany we were in a ground floor apartment, part of the owner's house and near the town of Buonconvento.

2. Why did you choose to go there?

We had not been to Amalfi before and it seemed the best way to

Armchair Amalfi-ing

Our Untourists of the Week, Andrew & Diana Stevens mentioned some of the more unforgettable aspects of their latest Untour, including the glories of walking  ("The Walk of the Gods" is an unforgettable one) the allure of the ubiquitous lemon orchards, 

We've curated a few gems from the internet to illustrate what the Stevens were talking about. If you can't actually BE in Amalfi, watching these can allow you to be in "armchair Amalfi"

1.  An introduction to the Walk of the Gods:

2.  A bit longer, more musical  Walk with the Gods

Andrew, with some of that cold beer

2. Why did you choose to go there?

We usually try to combine walking with our travels. When we walk, be it in a large city or less metropolitan area, we feel that we experience the place in a more personal way. We expected that Amalfi would offer a good opportunity for that experience and were pleased that it exceeded those expectations. We did our research and saw that Amalfi offered excellent scenery and a culture that retains its historic links. Choosing an unknown foreign destination carries uncertainties but today’s internet resources minimize those doubts. Before we decided, we found out about the hiking trails, what others had to say and what Amalfi actually looks like.
