The Italian coast is every bit as glamorous and sultry as the opening credits of a Fellini film, proving why it has been the destination of choice for any number of happily-ever-afters from the screens of old Hollywood to today. The rocky cliffs, sunkissed palazzos, slippery oysters and endless wine overload your senses and make you never want to leave. They call it the sweet life, and we couldn’t agree more. Amalfi was the elopement destination of Well Travelled Bride’s founder Kelsey Genna and her husband David, and we believe it holds enough beauty and adventure to suit the needs of any romantic at heart. The ancient town is nestled on the western coast of Italy, at the mouth of a deep ravine by the Gulf of Salerno’s crystal waters. It was the first stop on our whirlwind tour through Europe and definitely set our standards high for luxury.
We’ve gathered all our sources and recorded every stumbled-upon gem in the hopes of sharing with our brides what we believe to be the best the Amalfi Coast has to offer: the sweetest gelato, tangiest limoncello, most unbelievable hotel suites and dreamiest boat rides at dusk. We’ve got tips on which local chef’s lemon cake you absolutely must drop in and try, which Italian designer’s Baroque-inspired jewelry will amp up the glamour of your bespoke gown and which seaside hideaway houses the best spaghetti and oysters on the coast. Your avventura awaits… All you have to do is pack your bags and grab your man.
