Raise a glass to this hypnotic coast

Nuzzled in Campania on the shores of south west Italy sits a slice of magic. The World Heritage site of the Amalfi Coast is blessed by verdant woodlands and cliffs that plunge into impossibly blue waters. Foodies love the seafood plucked from its crystal waters and chat in cafes neighbouring ancient churches. As the sun sinks under flower-brightened slopes, raise a glass of limoncello and plan where’s next.

Take a ferry trip to the cafe-lined streets of Positano, or if you’re feeling fit, hike the Walk of the Gods with endless blue skies and seas as your backdrop. Discover lesser-known spots like Italy’s smallest town, Atrani, take a rocky ramble to the hidden paradise of Leranto and head to Amalfi to enjoy its cathedral. Travel a few miles from the Amalfi Coast to sip limoncello in Sorrento or discover a world conjured from fairytales in the Blue Grotto on well-heeled Capri.

Amalfi Coast holiday FAQs

Make the most of your Amalfi Coast holiday

Discover rich foods, fascinating history and hypnotic vistas of pastel-hued homes, Mediterranean flowers and miles of turquoise sea.

What are the best things to do in the Amalfi Coast area?

  1. Discover Amalfi. Don’t miss the Cattedrale di Sant’Andrea’s incredible bell tower. At the Museo della Carta, you can learn how paper was first made in AD 105 or take the bus four kilometres west of Amalfi and hop on a rowing boat to the Emerald Grotto. Beneath its jade waters are stone-carved nativity figures, while from above stalactites plunge 24 metres down.
  2. Explore the heights of well-heeled Capri. Famed for its luxury boutiques and chic eateries, this rocky isle can get seriously hot. That’s when its handy funicular comes in – a relief as it clambers high up to a piazza. If you prefer to find the island’s quieter side, take the 12-minute chairlift journey to get island-wide views from 600 metres up.
  3. Discover, dine and drink in Sorrento. Sorrento’s cathedral not only has a striking exterior but boasts a triple-tiered bell tower and a marble throne dating from 1573. Once you’ve drunk in its history, it’s time to dine on the best seafood you’ve had. Don’t forget to leave space for the area’s famed dessert, delizia, made from cedro – the giant lemons found here. Wash down, of course, with limoncello.
  4. Discover the peaceful mountaintop villas of Ravello. Crowning a hilltop that rises more than 365 metres above the Mediterranean are the villas of Rufolo and Cimbrone. Gardens and terraces (best May to October) are highlights, while Cimbrone also has a crypt based on England’s Fountains Abbey. These parts have attracted the likes of DH Lawrence, Virginia Woolf and composer Richard Wagner. Don’t miss the Ravello (music) Festival.
  5. Learn the history of the Bay of Naples and Pompeii. Between Naples and Castellammare, around an hour’s drive from Amalfi, lies the once hidden site of Pompeii. It was buried by burning volcanic rock in AD 79, and you can now see the Roman ruins of its streets, temples and even a brothel. Don’t rule out the lesser known but better persevered Herculaneum.
  6. It would be a shame to miss Positano’s alleys, cafes, pastel-hued homes, golden domes and beaches, but during busy summer months you can waste hours getting there by road. Instead take a three-hour trek from Bomerano with a backdrop of blue seas for company.
  7. Escape the footfall at Baia di Ieranto. Head for the bluest seas in the largely untouched Baia di Ieranto. This small bay is protected by Fondo Ambiente Italiano (FAI) – which protects Italy’s natural heritage. As the cleanest coast for miles – no engines are allowed anywhere near – you can visit on an FAI-organised tour or take an hour’s rocky trek from Nerano, close to Sorrento, to here.

What are the best places to stay around the Amalfi Coast?

It's impressive knowing you're sitting in the shadow of a volcano and Naples does impressive well. Buzzing with people, music and food it is also a treasure trove of art and history. Fuelled by cappuccino (try the art nouveau Gran Caffe Gambrinus, former haunt of Oscar Wilde), it's worth exploring its busy streets where you'll see ancient parts of Greece meet Rome. Take in the Royal Palace built in 1600, then head to Via Toledo's shops. Nearby, Piazza Gesu Nuovo has a church with lavish marble and gilded interiors, while surrounding narrow lanes offer authentic bars. Head to the city's oldest market, Pignasecca, for a real blast from the past, then lunch at Da Attilio with the locals. Off the famous Spaccanapoli (the street that 'splits' Naples in two) you'll find plenty of cloisters, churches and more frescoes than you can throw a brush at. For a nighttime buzz, head to the well-heeled Piazza Bellini for an injection of buzzing bars and cafes. If you’re craving some downtime, head for upmarket and leafy Chiaia or south of the city to the coast.

The small fishing village of Porta Marina Grande is far from Grande and offers a ‘piccino’ picture-perfect place. If you fancy ice cream (and classes), head to Piazza Vittoria; from there, turn onto Via Padre Giuliani. It's here you'll find a gelato paradise, including seasonal flavours of wisteria and mulberries. If you're here during the summer (July to September), don't miss the Sorrento Festival, which is crammed with jazz and classical music held in amazing historic venues.

While in Amalfi, why not learn about the area's 18th Century papermaking golden era amid wraparound scenery? Set within a gorge, complete with streams that open into the sea, there are now only two paper mills where there were once 16. The Museo della Carta is set inside a 15th Century mill and documents the history of papermaking from what was originally cotton rags.

Pompeii is where historian Mary Beard described as being the only place in the world where you can begin to understand, face-to-face, how Romans really lived, from brothels and lavatories to the posh dining rooms and lavish bathing spots. There are side streets to explore and plenty of stuff left from when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79. Around 3,000 of its 20,000 inhabitants didn't escape the disaster and a few have been preserved as some of the town's biggest attractions. Spot the cart tracks that score out early one-way systems and gardens that are being reconstructed. On top of that, of course, there’s the Forum (the main piazza), the bath buildings and the amphitheatre to see.

Where are the best places to visit around the Amalfi Coast?

Explore the meandering alleyways of pretty Amalfi, stopping to buy artisan paper and limoncello at quaint souvenir shops. At the town’s central piazza, climb the steep flight of steps to the beautiful, 9th Century Duomo. Then take a boat trip to the famed Emerald Grotto and marvel at its impressive stalactites illuminated by brilliant green light.

For luxury boutiques and chic eateries, try the island of Capri. Visit in spring, when its gardens burst into bloom and the island becomes a vision of colour. Board its funicular to the charming town of Anacapri.

Discover the peaceful mountaintop village of Ravello. Take in awe-inspiring views and admire the stunning blooms that inspired famous German composer Wagner, at Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone.

Picturesque Positano boasts terracotta-hued homes arranged in steep tiers against its lush mountainsides. Stroll around this cosmopolitan village, stopping to browse in high-end shops or dine on a terrace overlooking the sea. Visit its golden dome-topped duomo or take The Path of the Gods for coastal views.

Famed for its thermal baths, Vico Equense boasts stunning vistas across the Bay of Naples from its picturesque cliffside spot.
