South of Naples lies a coastline of dramatic cliffs, precariously perched fishing villages and the ever-present shimmering Mediterranean. This is the Amalfi Coast, which has been enticing visitors for decades to its tiny beaches and chic resort towns such as Sorrento and Positano and its island of Capri. If you are driving the coast, beware – this is no place for motorists with no head for heights, but adrenaline junkies will love the hairpin bends and vertical drops. It’s little different in the towns that cling to the hillsides, where often steep steps provide the only access to hotels and restaurants with terraces that seem to float between sea and sky. Nestle yourself into one of the coastal villages like Ravello or tiny Furore, kick back, relax and enjoy the heady views.
Take the short boat ride from Sorrento to Capri, steeped in myths and Roman history. Head to Piccola Marina following winding lanes, then wander down a precipitous flight of steps to La Canzone del Mare right by the seaside and visited by Capri’s rich and famous.
Enjoy tranquility in Ravello’s exquisite gardens and immerse yourself in the local village life. Villa Rufolo was built on an existing Roman structure, with a 30 metre high tower that overlooks Piazza Duomo. The Wagner Symphonic Music Festival takes place in the garden in July.
This tiny village is a good base from which to tackle Amalfi Coast walks with names like The Fishing Vixen. A cluster of old fishermen houses look like they have been glued to the cliffs. This is a dramatic and unique part of the Amalfi Coast.
Take a walking tour along the ancient pathways, winding along shoreline cliffs from coastal towns through rustic woodland, and up to beautiful villages perched on craggy peaks. You can go beyond the crowds – just make sure you are reasonably fit!
The golden treasure of Amalfi. Locals affectionately call it sunshine wine and serve it chilled, like summer champagne. Walk the streets of Amalfi, from the bustling tourist district to the small villages dotting the coastline, and you will see dozens of shops displaying beautifully shaped bottles of homemade limoncello.
