Amalfi Coast Positano

The Amalfi Coast | Le Sirenuse

May 02, 2023

Today we’re whisking you off to the Amalfi Coast to soak up la dolce vita. This little corner of the world boasts colorful villages clinging to the cliffs, spectacular coastal views, gorgeously prepared local foods, and a sparkle that’s just hard to put into words. 

Joining me today are father and son, my friends Antonio and Francesco Sersale. The Sersale’s own the iconic Positano hotel, Le Sirenuse. But more than that, I love that they are passionate about hospitality, family, and all the little details that take a trip from great to absolutely unforgettable. 

We talk about everything from the development of the Amalfi Coast as a tourist destination, to the crazy parties thrown by their uncle Aldo, to soaking up the sun and learning how to enjoy life.
