How to enjoy Amalfi Coast

In a country known for La Dolce Vita, Amalfi reigns as a glamorous seaside icon that has won the hearts of Hollywood’s elite and stylish romance seekers for decades: one visit and you’ll join the ranks of the besotted

  • Start your sightseeing at Amalfi’s Duomo, with its gold leaf-embellished façade and millennia of history
  • Discover Amalfi’s legendary papermaking industry (whose products are still a Vatican favorite) with a tour of the Cartiera Amatruda mill
  • Pick up colorful pottery from shop merchants who will spin you a yarn as you browse

Perched on a cliff-side overlooking the Mediterranean, the Amalfi Coast’s stunning beauty makes it Honeymoon Central. But whether you’ve just tied the knot or have a few decades of wedded bliss under your belt, charming coastal towns like Amalfi, Positano and Ravello will make you feel like a teenager again with their postcard-perfect winding roads and sparkling sea views.

This youthful zeal comes in handy when exploring narrow alleys, lanes, villas, churches and marvelous villa gardens. Getting lost in these enchanting villages is the only way to discover their real character, however, so don’t even think about hiring a car; driving round here is only for the brave.

Hotels we adore in Amalfi Coast

Here are the hotels that we love in Amalfi Coast. We've shared our insight about what makes each one special to help you select the perfect place to stay

  • Gourmet guide

    While you’re in Amalfi, visit Rossellinis where Michelin-starred chef Pino Lavarra creates delicious meals from local ingredients, best showcased in his tasting menu.

  • By the way

    In true Neapolitan tradition, your waiter may break into song as you dine. Sit back and enjoy Torna a Sorrento or Il Sole Mio: it’s all part of the show.

  • The local view

    The summer heat can be intense here, so choose a town like Ravello, which, being high up in the hills, is distinctly cooler.

    Our top tip: Look after your pool attendant and they’ll look after you. He, or she, will be your best friend when it comes to serving ice cold fresh lemonade or recharging your Kindle.

  • Did you know

    During Ravello’s famous summer music festival, the stage literally hangs over the cliff edge so audiences see nothing but the Mediterranean behind the musicians.
