- The beauty – From the peaks of the mountains to the glistening sea, breathtaking beauty lies at every turn. In recognition of this the area became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
- The food & drink – The Amalfi Coast is known for its pale-skinned lemons. They are far bigger than the lemons found elsewhere and are used to create the famous local tipple, limoncello. The area is home to several Michelin starred restaurants.
- The location – If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful surroundings, you'll find yourself closely located to the charismatic city of Naples and the legendary ruins of Pompeii.
- The glamour – If you want to feel like a star, the Amalfi Coast is the place to be. An impressive line up of legendary figures have stayed here including Greta Garbo, Jackie Kennedy and Tennessee Williams.
Things to do whilst on holiday in the Amalfi Coast
Take a coastal drive - For the most spectacular views, drive the stretch of road from Serranto down to the sea. This trip will give you glimpses of some of the Mediterranean's best views.
Sail across to the island of Capri - A forty minute ferry ride will transport you to this idyllic island. Hop on the chair lift and be whisked to the top of the island where you can survey views from a height of 589 metres.
Visit the Duomo in Amalfi - The cathedral is said to be home to the remains of St. Andrew and exhibits some stunning examples of art and architecture including bronze doors cast in Constantinople during the 11th Century.
Go on a hike on the Sentiero degli Dei - This path is known as the 'Trail of the Gods' for good reason, the four hour walk takes ramblers through vineyards, a gorge and caves.
