Discover the essence of Italy

Explore the Amalfi Coast


Ah, the Amalfi Coast: this glorious stretch of coastline along the south side of the Sorrento peninsula, in southern Italy, represents for many the very essence of Italian landscape and culture.

A striking and enchanting setting, this unspoiled and picturesque region offers a heady scenic mix that is irresistible to the traveller. The Lattari Mountains plunge precipitously into the cobalt-blue Mediterranean, their slopes carved over the centuries into terraces for vines, citrus and olive groves.

See the sights

  • Tackle the famous Amalfi Drive along the coast road, which takes in the ‘big three’ resorts of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello
  • Winding sinuously through a narrow valley, the route offers a glimpse of smaller fishing villages and market towns such as Praiano, Atrani and Vietri
  • The route briefly leaves the coastal highway after Amalfi for an incursion inland to look at the Lattari Mountains, where tiny settlements and elegant villas, linked by ancient pathways rich in wild flowers, perch high above the water
