After a couple of years of rainy and cold springs, the Amalfi Coast is finally having the mild and beautiful spring weather that it’s famous for. The wisteria has been blooming for weeks already along the coastline, and I’ve been enjoying its sweet scent filling the air. While the wisteria in Positano peaked about two weeks ago, the cooler temperatures up in the mountains of Ravello means that the wisteria blooms a little later there. I’ve been in Ravello quite a bit recently, and I’ve found wisteria blooming all over the town, from little trellises covered with vines to luscious clusters of flowers decorating the walls and signs. Here are a few springtime views of wisteria in Ravello. Enjoy!

hi Laura, the beautiful pictures of the wisteria blooming have inspired me to see if it will grow in my garden! Your pictures of the amalfi coast lift my spirits each morning before I go out to work.Thankyou x
Ciao Jackie! Thank you so much for your sweet comment. It really made my day! I do hope you’ll have success growing wisteria in your garden. Bougainvillea is another classic here on the Amalfi Coast. Later this summer I’ll be sure to share some photos of the brightly colored blooms to start your day with a bit of Amalfi Coast cheer!

I came upon your blog one day while looking for apartments to rent in Sorrento for a week in October. I am retired from the US Navy and have had to opportunity to travel many times to Europe and fell in love with Capri and Sorrento back in ’96 when my ship broke down in the Naples harbor. I am bringing a couple of friends with me for a visit in October and would love to stay on the Almafi Coast. Do you give tours? If not can you recommend anyone. My frieinds have never been to Europe and I want to make sure they have the time of their life.
I read your blog every day. AWESOME:)
