One of his favorite destinations there is the Amalfi Coast.

Occupying approximately 27,750 scenic acres along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the Amalfi Coast has supported human civilization since the early Middle Ages. In addition to its numerous rural communities, the region is home to several historic towns, such as Positano and Amalfi, which contain many examples of stunning architecture and great works of art.

The inhabitants of the Amalfi Coast have learned to build their communities in harmony with a diverse and often rugged terrain, which includes coastal mountains, precipitous cliffs, and lush forests. Its dramatic landscape has made the Amalfi Coast one of the top hiking destinations in the country.
