Costiera Amalfitana

How to get there
Direct flights, low-cost and regular airlines, from many European airports. We suggest car rent!

The Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana) is a breathtaking strip of land that stretches 50km across the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula,  with the famous town Sorrento nestled therein. Citrus groves rest serenely atop the steep, unforgiving cliffs and give their scent to the whitewashed villas that somehow manage to cling there, watching as the sea and sky melt into a vast blue horizon. 

Though expensive, Positano is the coast's most photogenic town. From there, the little village of Amalfi is a popular day-trip option, overlooked by the town of Ravello perched high above it on a hill. Salerno, the main transport hub in the area,  also has a splendid old town with winding medieval streets and is well worth the visit.

Amalfi was a maritime superpower in its heyday from the 9th to the 12th Centuries but then became poor and fell victim to frequent foreign invasions, earthquakes and landslides. Its isolated geographics helped it draw visitors in the early 1900s, however, and its allure as a jet-setting, romance-inspiring destination has increased every year since, turning it today into one of Italy's top tourist spots.

Spring or early autumn are probably the best times to visit. In summer travel by car and bus is slow due to congestion and prices are inflated and in winter much of the coast closes down.
