One of the greatest joys in travel comes from taking the time to explore places off the beaten path. While tours can be a wonderful way to learn more history, I've always been an independent traveler more willing to march to the beat of my own drum. While Atrani is only one town over from Amalfi, it had a quieter feel best described as a little nautical hamlet on the Mediterranean Sea. I cannot recommend enough how lovely it was to explore Italy in the off-season! Instead of shuffling with tourists and sitting in traffic along the Amalfi Coast's famous coastline, we practically had the charming towns to ourselves! On our way back "home" from a day trip to Ravello (blog post coming soon!), we hopped off the SITA bus in charming little Atrani to explore, walk down to the water and watch the sun set. Enjoy some of my favorite captures from Atrani all taken with the Pentax 645n using Kodak Portra 800.
My photo above was also recently featured on the Global Family Italia Instagram (@gf_italy) page! It's so exciting seeing my work being featured for the world to see! :-) Come back next Tuesday for more from the Amalfi Coast!
