Amalfi Coast Holidays

Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coastline on the southern edge of the Sorrentine Peninsula of Italy. A part of Salerno Province, Amalfi Coast extends from Positano in the west to Vietri sul Mare in the east. Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its unquestionable beauty and unique natural landscape, Amalfi Coast is characterized by the oxymoronic blend of mountain and sea, the farmer and the fisherman. For its breathtaking beauty, Amalfi Coast is recognized as the land of the Sirens, in the ancient Greek epic "Odyssey." During the Roman era dating back to the first century, Amalfi Coast was preferred as a place of luxury by aristocrats, who built lavish villas overlooking the scenic Mediterranean waters. The landscape and attractions in Amalfi Coast and its wealthy past gives tourists a strong sense of emotion and pleasant memories.

Breathtaking Amalfi Coast

With its panoramic views, fascinating culture, lavish food, and much more, Amalfi Coast is sure to delight anybody. The mountain that surrounds Amalfi Coast has been adapted to the demands of life, thanks to the passionate work of man. Amalfi Coast plunges steeply into the sea, resulting in fascinating coves, charming fjords, cliffs, natural arches, caverns, bays, and petite pebble beaches. This intermixture of man-made and natural elements has led to the creation of an enchanting, sinuous, and seductive landscape over centuries. Amalfi Coast is dotted with typical pastel houses that follow the natural slope of Mount Lattari, leaning against each other on the foothills and creating a pleasing landscape. Thirteen small yet beautiful places sculpted on the bare foothills located along the stretch of road add to the scenic attractions of Amalfi Coast. The picturesque landscape, majestically built structures, ancient ruins, churches, and beaches offer plenty of attractions for tourists.

General Etiquette

Like other parts of Italy, knowing local language is helpful in exploring attractions of Amalfi Coast.
