Amalfi Coast Holidays


Amalfi Coast Holidays

Set beside a stunning mountain range that plunges into the Tyrrhenian Sea, the seductive Amalfi Coast has rightfully become one of Italy’s most sought-after holiday locations. Whether you’re looking for a nice spot to sunbathe, a restaurant with an incredible view or authentic Italian food and drink, the Amalfi Coast truly has something for everyone.

Why Holiday in the Amalfi Coast?

Located in the Province of Salerno, the charming Amalfi Coast overlooks the turquoise waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Not only does it offer stunning clifftop views and a wonderful climate, but has bags of authentic Italian culture and produce to boot.

Those who like to walk and take in the sights are sure to find a special place in their heart for the many well-marked hiking trails and woodlands, offering an opportunity to literally sidestep the crowds of tourists who visit for Amafli Coast holidays each year.

Food & Drink on the Amalfi Coast

As with most popular tourist destinations, there is no shortage of fantastic bars and restaurants on the coast, ready to cater to the many tastes of the millions of tourists who flock to the coast each year.

With an abundance of succulent seafood, vibrant vegetables and freshly prepared pasta available across the coast, locating a real taste of Italy isn’t difficult. For an affordable and authentic stonebaked pizza, visitors can head to Da Maria Trattoria Pizzeria, which is close to the coast. For those with a sweet tooth, Sal De Riso produce some of the finest pastries, ice creams and chocolates in the region, combining generation-old recipes with a sweet modern twist!

What to do on the Amalfi Coast

Offering secret beaches, sophisticated nightlife and breathtaking views, a trip to the Amalfi Coast truly gives tourists an opportunity to live ‘the good life’.

Visitors can captain their own vessel, hiring a boat to head out into the Tyrrhenian Sea, stopping to dive into the refreshing water as they please! In most towns along the coast, you’ll see a sign reading ‘noleggio barche’ (“boat hire”). You can expect to pay around £18 per hour for a small vessel.

Film fans are also sure to be delighted with the many recognisable locations from the films of Roberto Rossellini. For a truly unique photo opportunity, explore the streets of the Amalfi Coast to hunt down to recreate the poses of his leading ladies, Ingrid Bergman and Anna Magnani! You can find stills of Rossellini’s films throughout Maiori.

Tips for Visiting the Amalfi Coast

On average, flights to Naples take just under three hours, and then a subsequent transfer takes around 90 minutes to reach the coast (arrangements for an airport transfer can be booked along with flights and hotels right here with Sunshine.co.uk). The local currency on the Amalfi Coast is the Euro, which most UK holidayers are more than familiar with.

You may wish to take some trusted shoes and equipment if you’d like to explore the many hiking trails around the coast, as the rocky landscape may not be well-suited to those in regular footwear, sandals or flip-flops.
