Amalfi Coast Italy

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most famous Italian resorts. It is a beautiful coastal area located in the Gulf of Salerno, boasting incredible views of the Mediterranean sea and the sunset. It is quite picturesque, as it located on the slope of a hill, filled with ancient narrow streets that connect homes with stairs carved into the rock, and it is naturally “decorated” by orchards of lemon and orange that fascinate any visitor. The Amalfi Coast, with its 9000 inhabitants, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Anyone visiting the Amalfi coast will enjoy a walk on the Mayori, the largest beach of the region and an area where Roman aristocrats used to build their summer homes. Right next to it lies Minori, a smaller area where you can admire the well-preserved ruins of a Roman villa of the first century BC, with impressive frescoes and mosaics. In the picturesque town of Amalfi, the impressive Cathedral of St. Andrew, where the relics of the saint are kept, is definitely worth a visit. Also, the charming village of Konka dei Marini features the most picturesque white houses of limestone and beautiful churches, and you can also enjoy a tour of the Emerald sea cave, which will amaze you with its emerald waters. Of course, a visit to the Amalfi Coast is never complete without a tour of the enchanting Positano, the richest and most picturesque area with numerous stairs, narrow streets and the most dramatic vistas of the ocean.
