Holidays to the Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most evocative names in travel, and understandably so. An Amalfi coast holiday incorporates dramatic cliffs plunging into the sea and charming towns dotted at regular intervals, making it a serious contender for Europe's most romantic spot. All together now - amo, amas, Amalfi.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Aside from the Amalfi area, the west coast also has areas of outstanding beauty in Tuscany and Lazio, with Porto Ercole a particular Original Travel favourite
  • The Amalfi coast is home to some of Italy's most delicious restaurants - many of which are set in dramatic and extremely romantic locations

Luxury Holidays to the Amalfi Coast

Yes, there are downsides, such as single lane coastal roads that can be extremely busy, and hotels that can be eye-wateringly expensive, but Original Travel can advise the best ways to get around (early morning or late evening) and how to get the best deals.

If you do take the plunge, Southern Italy's famous coastline runs from Punta Campanella to Salerno and includes the picturesque hilltop towns of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. It is also home to some of Italy's finest restaurants, all precariously perched along a beautiful coast of rugged cliffs and sandy coves.

The region also lends itself to walking or boating excursions, or drinking espresso and indulging in the Italian passion for people watching.


Original Highlight

Hopping on a boat and taking a jaunt over to Capri for the day. Stop at a little cove for a spot of swimming, en route, before heading for a fresh seafood lunch at Da Paolino, set among a beautiful lemon grove.
