Amalfi Coast Holidays

Explore Italy's most beautiful coastline on an Amalfi Coast holiday

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most recognisable images of Italy. This 50-kilometre-long coastline of plunging cliffs is topped with sky-scraping viewpoints. The towns step down the cliffs in a jumble of pastel houses and church domes, before fetching up at tiny harbours where you'll find some of the country's finest seafood.

What to see on an Amalfi Coast holiday

Although alike in looks, each town has its own forte. Ravello is known for its terraced gardens and clifftop summer music festival. Amalfi has a grand eighth-century cathedral, while Positano offers the Byzantine Church of Santa Maria Assunta and a great beach to relax on. 

Amalfi Coast holidays also leave you perfectly poised for exploring the rest of the region from Sorrento, Ischia and Capri to Naples, Pompeii and Vesuvius.

Things To Do

Things to see and do

The Amalfi Coast isn't all boat trips and leisurely lunches by the sea. This region of Italy has tonnes of history to explore and each of the towns offers something new to see. Some of our favourite things to do here are:

  • Pompeii & Herculaneum: These Roman towns were destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in a devastating eruption in 79 AD, burying them in the heavy volcanic ash that helped preserve them for centuries. Take a guided tour to learn all about them.
  • Paestum: Once one of Italy’s biggest ancient Greek cities, Paestum is now an archaeological site with well-preserved Greek temples and is a couple of hours drive from the Amalfi Coast. Make sure to stop at an authentic mozzarella farm along the way, too.
  • Explore the Coast: The towns along the Amalfi Coast are easily explored by local buses and boats. Hop on a boat at Amalfi and visit beautiful towns like Positano and Maiori or sit back and enjoy the views from the road on the way to Ravello.
  • Visit Sorrento: This bustling town has plenty to do. Sip coffee in Piazza Tasso, head down to the marina for a seafood lunch and browse the artisan shops.
  • See Capri: Sail across to Capri for the day - one of our favourite Italian islands. We love the towns where you can shop in designer stores and eat in family-run restaurants. Head for Anacapri for the best sea views.

Food & drink

Italian food doesn't get much better than on the Amalfi Coast. Expect fresh seafood, light salads and home-made pasta. Mozzarella is big here, it's produced in Campania and the caprese salads are a must-have. We love washing everything down with a limoncello after. 

Activities

Keen hikers will love the Amalfi Coast. There's some great trails that head up the cliffs where you're rewarded with uninterrupted sea views. They'll take you away from the tourist bustle and past family farms and lemon groves. The Footpath of the Gods is probably the most famous. It starts just a short bus ride from Amalfi and runs for four miles.

Good to know

  • One of the best ways to move around the Amalfi Coast is by boat. The Travelmar Ferry will connect you with the ports in Positano, Amalfi, Minori, Maiori and Salerno
  • Walk ‘The Path of the Gods’ an ancient mule trail that passes through the towns and villages of the Amalfi Coast
  • Ravello festival takes place form April to October each year, when the ancient town lives up to it’s name as 'the city of music’ with a series of concerts and events
