The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s best-known regions, thanks to some of the country’s most extraordinary coastal views, scenic cliff top villages, and perfectly formed tiny harbours and bays.
Yet this is by no means honeymoon-exclusive territory: the treasures of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and the historical and cultural attractions of Naples add a different dimension to a classic beach holiday while the rural charm of the Cilento National Park to the south ensures that the Amalfi Coast is a great option for multi-centre holidays for families or couples.
"Thank you for all your in-depth knowledge and advice. We had a wonderful time. Everything went smoothly. The Villa d’Armiento was excellent and the places we visited – walking around Naples, Amalfi Coast, Pompeii and Sorrento were exhilarating."
When Amalfi Coast tourists reach Vietri sul Mare, they see Salerno’s uninspiring littoral and conclude, aesthetically, that they’re at journey’s end. But beyond that dull coastal plain rises the limestone wonderland that is the Parco Nazionale del Cilento. Here, ports such as Marina di Pisciotta are the kind of places Amalfiphiles dream of, but never find, while amid the lemon groves inland, you’ll discover villages so ancient, they should be monochrome. >>>
