Amalfi Coast

The most famous towns are Amalfi, Positano and Ravello cling to the cliffs along the scenic Amalfi coastline.

The spectacular Amalfi Coast is considered Italy’s most scenic stretch of coastline, offering a beguiling combination of picturesque, hillside villages and towns spilling down cliff sides to fishing ports and beaches below.

Where to go on the Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi coastline is deemed by UNESCO as “an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape, with exceptional cultural and natural scenic values”.

The most famous towns are Amalfi, Positano and Ravello. Amalfi is the largest town along this mountainous stretch of coastline and a great base from which you can explore the surrounding towns and villages. Visit the 9th century Duomo in the central piazza followed by an afternoon exploring the narrow white alleyways and browsing the shops.

Amalfi has a small beach which gets very busy on summer weekends so a good day trip is to the Isle of Capri with ferries or private boats available most days. Positano is a village on the coast to the west of Amalfi, with an international, cosmopolitan atmosphere where people tend to stay to eat, relax and shop. Ravello is situated above the Amalfi Coast, its scenic beauty making it a popular destination for tourists and earned it a listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Well worth visiting are the Cathedral and the gardens of Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.

Kate Hitchen

My travels were first inspired by my love of the UK, which I take as much pleasure in exploring as countries far and wide. For me, travel is all about the adventure, the people I meet and the food I sample along the way. In fact, I am never happier than when I’m cycling, trekking or simply eating my way through a country! My heart and head regularly pull me east, notably to India but I may also be found wandering through the galleries and piazzas of Italy or daydreaming about fresh ceviche in the far west.
