Part 2 – Amalfi Coast

Today, getting married in Italy is a trend on the rise, here are our tips.

Let yourself be nurtured listening to the distant echo of ancient Sirens while going barefoot through that gem of the Mediterranean between Capri and Amalfi.
The Amalfi Coast is a true earthly paradise that extends through the southern side of the Sorrento Peninsula. Coveted beach destination, the whole world loves this corner of the Campania region for its breathtaking panoramic routes, characterized by high cliffs that cascade down to the blue sea. Although the sun is the main attraction of southern Italy (the songs “O paese d’ ‘o sole” and ”O sole mio” are very famous) the origins of Amalfi are shrouded by clouds and many of them are in fact legends related to the foundation of the city, certainly of Roman origin, becoming a free republic at the end of the 9th century.

Here it stands, overlooking the sea, the Convent of the Capuchins, today NH Collection Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi, dating back to the early 13th century, its natural terrace has kept all its irresistible charm over time and today is one of the main symbols of the Amalfi Coast. The peaceful atmosphere inside is the same as ever, together with the scent of salt and the sound of the waves.
“Nowhere in the world are there so many opportunities for delightful tranquility as on this small island”, as Charles Dickens wrote to describe the island of Capri.

A true gem of the Mediterranean, priceless pearl of immense beauty because of its breathtaking views. The Blue Grotto, spectacular cave where a long beam of light illuminates the surface of the water and stops time, would be enough to express the importance of this destination.
One step away from its famous “Piazzetta” rises the Grand Hotel Quisisana, home to kings, poets and rock stars, located at the beginning of the street where the boutiques of great Italian designers and local craft shops are found, this majestic building is surrounded by fragrant gardens of orange blossom and panoramic views of the Faraglioni (three spurs of rocks), another great icon of this timeless island.
