Fine art photographer Gray Malin is known for his FOMO-inducing pictures from around the world. He's shot in places like San Diego and Waikiki—mostly from the sky—providing a unique perspective of the world's most iconic destinations. Now travelers can experience his Amalfi Coast series first-hand by booking a themed itinerary with luxury travel company Scott Dunn.

The high-end tour operators partnered with Malin to create a seven-night trip to the stunning Italian coastline called the Gray Malin x Scott Dunn Amalfi Coast Getaway. During the journey, you'll get to visit Praiano, Positano, Atrani, Nerano, Ravello, and Capri staying at luxury hotels like Il San Pietro and Palazzo Avino, an American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property, and dine at hot spots like Ristorante Max and Music on the Rocks.

Of course, stops at the dreamy locations featured in Malin's photographs are included. You'll lounge at the La Fontelina beach club in Capri, spot umbrella dotted beaches from the deck of a private boat sailing along the coast, and trek the breathtaking Path of the Gods for birds-eye views of the coastline's dramatic vistas.

"Although we offer customized itineraries around the world, Italy has always been the most popular destination in our portfolio," said John Spence, USA President of Scott Dunn. "Gray's photography spectacularly sums up the allure and beauty of the country. Our Italy Experts worked closely with Gray to design this exclusive, customized journey through the Amalfi Coast, which brings Gray's iconic images to life."

While you'll get to follow in the footsteps of Malin and participate in experiences like wine tasting on the grounds of 11th century Villa Cimbrone with a local sommelier, Scott Dunn can also add custom activities like private cooking classes and a helicopter tour over the coastline.

"I traveled around Italy over the course of five incredible summers to capture my La Dolce Vita series and recently released ITALY, a book of images from the collection," said Malin. "The Amalfi Coast holds a special place in my heart, and this very personal itinerary encompasses all my favorite spots to explore—including many of the exact locations from my shoots."

The exclusive package is priced from $11,676 per person, not including airfare, and guests can book this at any time.
