Sorrento and The Amalfi Coast

Breathtakingly beautiful views at almost every turn, the scenic route along the Amalfi Coast winds its way from Naples to Salerno and is celebrated as one of the most romantic and stunning stretches of coastline anywhere in the world. Along this stretch there are plenty of beautiful little villages perched on the cliff sides, with cobblestoned streets and colourful piazzas laden with fragrant flowers. Off the beaten track, there are deserted pathways to explore, along with pretty pebble beaches and secluded coves.

 

 

Among the area’s unique attractions are the extraordinary classical ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii and of course the mighty volcano that destroyed them 2000 years ago, Mount Vesuvius. The area boasts just as much beauty as historical interest with its cascading cliff sides, beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters.

 

 

Resorts

Sorrento is a truly idyllic town that perfectly marries a sense of history with real Italian charm and once visited, it is sure to steal your heart. Your stay is Sorrento revolves around the main square where good value, quality restaurants abound as well as shops and cafés. The area’s beautiful and quaint harbour is picture perfect with its small fishing boats bobbing and restaurants that fringe the waters edge.

 

 

Amalfi is a stunningly beautiful town set on a small sand and shingle beach that overlooks the glistening Bay of Salerno. Buildings are staggered and appear carved into the cliffside, meaning there are breathtaking views from most places you go. In the quaint little village centre lies the ‘Duomo’, a beautiful church from which narrow streets lined with cafés and restaurants branch out.

 

 

Positano is without doubt, one of the most picturesque towns in all of Italy. It has charmed visitors for decades with its precariously perched pastel houses that seem to be carved into the cliff side, as well as its spectacular setting right on the seaside. There are two beautiful beaches and an idyllic seafront promenade lined with shops and cafés.

 

 

Capri is a beautiful island just off the Amalfi Coast that provides a wealth of Mediterranean appeal and is an exclusive and unspoilt resort. The island has a mythical charm and its breathtaking landscapes and beauty stretch from the rocky caves around the island to the edge of the horizon.

 

 

Maiori is the perfect spot on the Amalfi Coast for those who love the beach. The largest seaside resort on the Amalfi Coast, Maiori boasts a long stretch of volcanic beach and a beachside promenade that is simply perfect for lazy evening strolls after a day relaxing in the sun.

 

 

Minori supplies visitors with a classic taste of ‘la dolce vita’. It is a beautifully secluded little spot with a typically Italian laid-back atmosphere. Little fishing boats are dotted by the water’s edge and contrasting mountain paths wait to be explored. If you want an idyllic, relaxing summer stay, Minori is the absolutely perfect choice.
