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.
