The beautiful Amalfi Coast in the region of Campania, is one of the most magnificent areas of coastline in Italy. The views out over the sea are simply breath taking. Four days in this beautiful part of the world is the ideal place for a romantic holiday, eating on a balcony with breathtaking views out over the Tirrenian Sea. The craggy Island of Capri has always been a mecca for the rich and famous.
The twisting road squeezed between the rocks reveals tantalising glimpses of small villages, secluded bays, and inlets, all looking out over a clear blue sea in stark contrast to the lush green Mediterranean flora.
A journey which leads the traveller not only to towns of world wide fame such as Positano where the houses are steeped up the hillside straight up from the sea. Amalfi.
The exquisite Ravello with its dominating position on the hill ,top offers the tourist a magnificent, dizzying seascape view over the whole of the Coast and also the lesser known, yet amazing places such as Minori, Conca dei Marini, and Praiano.
On The Amalfi Coast We Recommend….
Take the high speed train from Rome to Napoli – 1.10 hr and then we can organise a transfer from Napoli station to Positano as in summer the traffic is horrendous and difficult. From Positano you can take the boat to Amalfi and Ravello and catch the ferry to Capri for the day.
The seafood here is deliously sweet and shellfish are very popular on the menus- Vongole and Cozze. Try the ‘Spaghetti alle Vongole’ (clams), one of the best Italian seafood dishes and we will tell you the best restaurants to sample it. The Amalfi Coast is the place to eat seafood in Italy rather than the big cities.
If you are interested in seeing the magnificent Volcano Mt. Vesuvius which destroyed the city of Pompei beneath it, let us organise a private guided tour of the ruins in the Pompei Archaeological park or climb the Volcano – there are magnificent views from the top. We also have a tour that takes you up to the crater by four wheel drive truck for those that aren’t interested in trekking the whole way.
Between all these little villages the most relaxing way to travel is by boat. We can book you your own private boat with a guide and there are numerous boat services at reasonable prices, to ferry you to the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida and many small secret beaches where you can hide away.
The Amalfi Coast is located in the Campania region, just south of Naples around the corner from Mt. Vesuvius and the famous Pompei.
