    Hi!! We are also planning a south France/ lake Como trip for our anniversary and this post was a godsend. Just curious, how would you compare lake Como with Amalfi Coast? One your prefer over the other? Thanks!

      Hi Angel! What a wonderful anniversary trip! Both areas are stunning. You truly can’t go wrong. Lake Como is more peaceful than Amalfi–it’s a place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet (especially if you choose a smaller town like Torno). The Amalfi Coast is much more “bustling” if that makes sense. There is more to do on the Amalfi Coast, and the coastline is unlike anywhere I’ve been in the world. It is staggeringly beautiful, and the vibe in Southern Italy is FUN. It is busier, though, especially in the summer months. I recommend Ravello as a base in Amalfi if you go that direction because it is the most serene of the towns on the coast. Kind of the best of both worlds.

      To sum it up: we have been to both places now. If we could go anywhere for our 10 year anniversary, I’d choose Ravello in Amalfi. But Lake Como might make more sense for your trip since it’s closer to the South of France! I hope that was helpful!!!
