idyllic italy - the amalfi coast

i took these images in several cities along the amalfi coast of italy. the landscape is absolutely breathtaking, while the atmosphere reveals a tourist-dependence in the region - even during the off-season when i visited in november.

clear water.


the town of amalfi.




the duomo (cathedral) of amalfi.


altrani.






scratch that - i want to change my house number!


absolutely no bugling!


along the walk from altrani to ravello, a town whose name is derived from its onetime "rebellious" attitude!




scenes from ravello.










the world is full of ex-doorways.










cool lights in salerno




mmm.... pizza.


i stayed at hostels while traveling, but there are wide variety of amalfi hotels to choose from.
