Getting around the Amalfi Coast
The region of Campania on the south-west coast of Italy is home to one of the world's most famous and most beautiful coastlines - the Amalfi Coast. This spectacular area draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year to enjoy the mildness of the climate, the exotic vegetation of palms, lemon and orange trees and the remarkable sandstone cliffs which plunge dramatically into the turquoise Mediterranean sea.
Following the hair-raising coast road on the Amalfi peninsula you will encounter a sea-bound landscape of fragrant citrus orchards and flowering bougainvillea. Take your time, explore, and look closely - the plunging coastline hides tiny fishing villages hugging hidden coves. One of the "must sees" is the Gardens at Ravello. Also, take sometime to visit the gorgeous Duomo di Sant'Andrea in Amalfi. If you go in high season, there's a good chance you'll see a wedding taking place.
A holiday on the Amalfi Coast is also a great opportunity to visit the other attractions in the region, the vast majority of which are located around the Bay of Naples and on the coast of Sorrento. The island of Capri, the great archeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the ancient city of Paestum with its greek temples: a choice of destinations for an unforgettable day trip from the Amalfi Coast, all easy to reach by car, bus, train or boat.
