Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Conce dei Marini


It’s September 1st, and what that means when you live on the Amalfi Coast is that you have survived the August heat and invasion of tourists. While there hasn’t been a break in the high temperatures, I can say there is a whole lot more room to breath here now on the Amalfi Coast. (And park and walk and lay on the beach…) Over at Bell’Avventura, Scintilla recently shared a fun post called You know that it’s August in Positano if … that is a must read for any fans of the Amalfi Coast and anyone who has experienced August here. She also has up a beautiful new banner image of bougainvillea that you have to check out.


Speaking of new banner images, the first of the month means a new one here on Ciao Amalfi. This month is the rich blues of the sky and sea in Conca dei Marini. Located just west of Amalfi, I’ve written about the Church of Sant’Antonio in Conca dei Marini and Conca dei Marini in the Springtime and the Grotta dello Smeraldo (Emerald Grotto). Both of those posts are from my Tempting Tuesday series, which will resume next week after my August break.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the late summer sun on the beautiful cove in Conca dei Marini!

    Ciao Lisa! Grazie! 🙂

    Ciao Anne! Glad you like the new banner. I really enjoyed Scintilla's post. She has such great and entertaining insights!

    Ciao Scintilla! Grazie! Yes, it's still been very humid all week. Right now the wind is blowing and the dark clouds are looming. I hope it rains again!

    Ciao Peter! By the time you read this you'll be just on the other side of the mountains. 🙂 Bentornato in Italia!

    Ciao Saretta! Thank you for your kind words. I really like this new banner, too. It's going to be hard to change next month!

    Ciao Pat! Good to hear life is getting back to normal in Modica!
