Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most recognisable images of Italy – a 50-kilometre-long coastline of plunging cliffs 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.

Although alike in looks, each place 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.

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.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service on the Amalfi Coast.
