Amalfi Coast tailor-made holidays
The Amalfi Coast stretches along the Sorrentine Peninsula in the south of Italy, and is famous for its tantalising combination of historical cathedrals, grottoes and ancient villas, fine Neapolitan cuisine and the outstanding natural beauty of its scenery.
The area, with its steep cliffs, vineyards, lemon groves and secluded caverns and beaches, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 and is home to some of the most picturesque towns in Italy, such as Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento. These sunny cliffside towns boast dramatic scenery and a refreshingly laid-back attitude.
Amalfi Coast holidays feature luxury hotels and sumptuous villas dotted all along the coastal inlets and bays, or built high on the cliffs in many of the mountain villages, such as Scala and Ravello. You'll enjoy the chance to stay in some of Italy's most exclusive properties here, making your holiday unforgettable.
