Picture perfect location with stunning views

Steep hills lined with lemon trees plunge down to perfect sands and dazzlingly blue sea. The Amalfi Coast is where the Italians choose to come and holiday, and you can see why. With ancient fishing villages perched on the seafront and stunning views out to the Mediterranean, every turn leads to a picture-perfect vista. Blessed with some of the world's best boutique hotels, Amalfi Coast is a must-see Italian destination. 

Things to do

They’re why the jet set comes here. Golden sands that stretch all along the west coast, the azure Mediterranean and all the services and facilities you need to relax in style. See and be seen on the beaches, or enjoy fine dining on the beach terraces.

The Amalfi Coast may cater to the most discerning and modern tastes, but there’s plenty of history around here too. Arrange a trip from your luxury hotel to see the stunning cathedral and cloisters in Amalfi, or the churches in Atrani and Positano. You can also visit an ancient Roman villa in Minori.

If you’ve got time during your stay on the Amalfi Coast, make sure to spend a day visiting Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. Everyone knows the story of the eruption, but you still can’t helped be moved by the haunting image of a whole town frozen in time by the ash. 

Top Tip from SLH

The roads in many of the villages here are very narrow, which can make for difficult driving. So join the locals and tour the coast by scooter.
