Where To Eat On A Budget In Italy’s Amalfi Coast

August 28, 2020

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful places in Italy. This locale is one of Europe’s most romantic honeymoon destinations.

This Italian tourist attraction stretches 50 kilometers of coastline along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula. Decorated with sheer cliffs, rugged shorelines, little beaches, and fishing villages. These tiny villages make for great views as the homes are decorated in pastel-like colors. Amalfi’s coastal road winds down deep gorges, olive groves, grand villas, and lemon terraces. And sitting on the horizon is the glistening Tyrrhenian Sea.

It is recommended to visit this spot in May, September, or early October when the weather is pleasant and to avoid big crowds. The amazing thing about the Amalfi Coast is that you do not have to have a big budget to enjoy dining around this beautiful coast.
