The Amalfi Coast and the region of Campania are some of the best known areas of Italy after Venice, Florence and Rome. The coastal area includes some very popular destination such as the Bay of Naples, Sorrento, Capri, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Naples just to name a few. This area is a powerhouse of possibilities. Make sure you incorporate the Amalfi Coast or the Campania region when you design your trip to Italy.
Positano is popular for its central location, its restaurants and jaw-dropping beauty. Despite these charms, some might find the peak season crowds, prices, and stairs overwhelming.
Ravello is an enchanting village perched on a ridge high above Amalfi and the neighboring town of Atrani. Ravello is relatively out of the way and the bulk of its visitors come during the day, leaving the nights gloriously quiet. There are several hikes in the area—even down to Amalfi.
Sorrento is convenient for visitors pairing the Amalfi Coasts with a stay in, situated just across the way. It also marks the start of the 43-mile infamously winding coastal road that runs to Salerno.
Amalfi is the Amalfi Coast’s largest city, but it’s still small enough to feel intimate. It is a convenient base for excursions to Capri and the Grotta dello Smeraldo. Amalfi is romantically situated at the mouth of a deep gorge and its Duomo is impressive.
