The Amalfi coastline

First impressions of Amalfi can be summed up in one word. Wow! This coastline is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Europe. The coast itself is only an hour's drive from Naples and shares a certain resemblance to Cinque Terre, only much further south. This makes it a lot more accommodating in the spring as the temperature is perfect! In addition, the Amalfi Coast has been placed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, which is always a good sign. Heading into the center of cities on this coastline, one can find many historic cathedrals and museums. From most places on the Amalfi coast, day trips to other cities like Pompeii and Capri are easily done by public transport making it a great hub for holidaymakers.

Lecce

Lecce is located in the heel of Italy and is one of the most beautiful locations in the south to boot! This town shares certain similarities in its aesthetic with Rome and Florence. Lecce is renowned for its Baroque style which is ubiquitous, and can be seen all throughout the city. Many artists and writers have found a home in Lecce. In terms of culture and diversity, you can see why. There is plenty to do in the city and for relaxation you can head to one of several beautiful beaches to spend the day.

Sicily

Sicily is definitely worth the effort to see with a motorhome. This gorgeous island in the Mediterranean sea is very diverse and rich in beautiful campsites immersed in nature. From the tip of Italy's boot, one can take a ferry over to the island. Sicily is well-known for its prominent and active volcano, Mount Etna. Sicily is also incredibly rich in history and is dotted with countless beautiful historic buildings, temples and sites. Not that it really needs a mention, but like the rest of Italy, Sicily has some exceedingly delicious food! One regional culinary difference distinct to Sicily is the serving of gelato on a roll instead of a cone or bowl. It might sound peculiar to some but we say leave it to the experts, and anything with gelato on it can’t be that bad, can it?
