Unique photo Tips and ideas

You can take the best Instagram spots on the Amalfi coast, and then there are a few unique-to-you photo opportunities that you must include:

  • We can highly recommend a scenic vintage drive along the coast! You’ll adore the vintage car photo tour with Positano Vintage Dream. They pick up from Positano or Praiano and guide you to Positano’s most stunning viewpoints. A must!
  • Italian pottery is a work of art, full of beautiful colors and patterns. Some shops don’t allow photos, but near Via Trara Genoino, you’ll find a spot with stunning outdoor displays. Perfect for capturing the beauty of these intricate pieces. 
  • While enjoying some “me-time” – take photos at the beach clubs.  Think chic lounges, and vibrant umbrellas against stunning coastal backdrops… like the unique La Fontelina on Capri island.
  • Not all photos should include the coast (although it’s beautiful), but think outside the box.  Go to:  O’Parrucchiano Restaurant for something you have never seen before.  A hidden gem on the Amalfi Coast that should be the talk of the town.  This restaurant nestled in a lemon grove is sheer beauty. Lemon trees, fragrant flowers, and exceptional food make it a memorable experience. Outstanding!  Enjoy while you take awesome photos.
