I absolutely love this new commercial from Fiat!
As you can probably tell this commercial was most definitely filmed on the Amalfi Coast, particularly in Maiori, where I have stayed and also the towns of Positano, Atrani, Maiori, Minori and Furore and Amalfi. Compare the pics!
Twenty-eight seconds into the video you can easily recognize the town of Amalfi with the blue buses lined up near the dock.
Thirty-six seconds into the video you can see the harbor at Maiori.
And of course the NYC city scenes go without saying. To read more about the making of this commercial click here.
Fiat comes up with some interesting commercials. The other favorite of mine is the one they unveiled during the Super Bowl. It’s titled “Seduction.” If you haven’t seen it, enjoy.
Lisa at Amalfi Blue
Just saw this post. I actually sat at my favorite beachside restaurant in Praiano, watching them film this for an entire evening. That white car was just a shell. LoL
Thanks Lisa for a unique perspective. That must have been awesome watching the commercial being filmed!
I could not believe when I saw the commercial in Amalfi. I was there right before they shot the commercial. I go to Amalfi 2x a year and going back in September.
I think Maiori would be a good place to be based for exploring the Amalfi Coast rather than staying at the larger towns, is it easy to get to?
Yes there are buses from Salerno as well as from Amalfi. There also are ferries from Amalfi. I spent five days in Maiori and it was a great place to relax and use as a base for sightseeing on the Amalfi Coast.
It’s easier to stay in Sorrento. More boats transfer to different parts on Amalfi Coast. Also to Capri, Naples, and Ischia.
I agree with you. it really is a great location to sue as a base. The first time I went to Italy I stayed there for 3 nights and from there went to Pompeii,Positano, Amalfi and other places. I am writing a post on Sorrento now as a matter of fact. Thanks for your input and stay tuned!
When we rented the car in Palermo the insurance was mandatory and it covered theft and liability. I am not sure about collision but I though it covered it. I would suggest contacting your own insurance provider to see what they cover for you while driving in Italy. I am not sure what this extended reimbursement is.
Have a fantastic trip!
True, we used Sorrento as a base last time and it was great but I like the smaller towns and it would be great to stay somewhere different.
Beautiful shots, Margie; I’ve always wanted to visit the Amalfi coast.
We have a baby blue Fiat and we love it.
Thanks for sharing. Your post is a useful coounibttinr.
