Join A Secret Italy


What is the Amalfi Coast?

I often get asked "what is the Amalfi Coast?" The answer I give is to refer people to this page of my blog, I tell them to watch a few of the videos and I warn them that once you've discovered the Amalfi Coast there is no going back.

Okay, so what is the Amalfi Coast?  Well, it is a stretch of heartbreakingly beautiful coastline, stretching from Positano to Vietri sul Mare. 

Along the coast are soaring cliffs, the bluest seas you'll ever see and delightful little villages of orange, lemon and peach colors, climbing their way up hillsides between olive groves, lemon orchards and vineyards.


Getting here is awe-inspiring, particularly if you arrive by boat.

You will usually sail into either Amalfi (as in the video above) or Positano.  Unless you are lucky enough to have your own boat, you will likely arrive on one of the well-priced ferries from Sorrento or Salerno.

When you consider the experience awaiting you the ferry voyage has to be one of the world's  greatest bargains. That view is truly priceless

In fact, there are only two ways to arrive here, by boat or by road. The road is something else, spectacular it is, but a little hair-raising  too.

From the moment you set foot on this coast you feel a little overwhelmed. The beauty of towns such as Amalfi, Positano and Ravello is astounding.

I can honestly say that I have never seen its equal in my entire lifetime of traveling.

You feel like you want to wrap it all up and take it with you through the rest of your life.  Actually, you do that anyway. The memories made here stay with you always.

What happens on the Amalfi Coast stays with you forever.

Our Tip: If only the most beautiful, most moving, most life changing of destinations will do then you know where to visit. The Amalfi Coast has to be top of your list.
