With its scented lemon groves, flower-strewn cliffsides, bobbing fishing boats and tumbling, sherbet hued tons, the Amalfi Coast is one of the best places where spend your holidays in Italy. Others may argue that the title belongs to Liguria’s Cinque Terre or Calabria’s Costa Viola.

Amalfi Coast Italy

The Amalfi Coast is a 50-kilometre stretch of coast south of the Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region. A popular holiday destination, it is characterized by steep cliffs and a rugged coastline dotted with small beaches and pastel-coloured fishing villages.

The Amalfi Coast is in the south of Italy and is it is a collection of cities ( Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano ecc. ecc.) For example, Positano is the perl in the pack, Positano is the coast’s most photogenic and expensive town. Its steeply stacked house is a medley of peaches, pinks and terracottas, and its near-vertical streets are lined with voguish shop displays, jewellery stalls, elegant hotels and more. So technically when you want to go to Amalfi Coast you can choose a big range of cities and if you want to spend Amalfi Coast holidays, you should take one week of time.

When to go to the south of Italy we really would advise you to take a house or apartment through Airbnb because staying one week in that zone can be so expensive if you choose a Hotel.
