Amalfi Holidays

Amalfi holidays

Located at the mouth of a deep ravine and surrounded by high, unforgiving cliffs and some of the most spectacular and romantic coastal scenery in Europe, Amalfi is the jewel from which this world famous coastline takes its name.

Amalfi is classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, between 839 and 1,200AD, was one of the most important trading powers in the Mediterranean, rivalling those of the maritime republics of Genoa and Pisa. It traded with Tunis, Egypt, Palestine, Byzantium and Cyprus. Open-air cafes and restaurants nestle between buildings of astounding beauty and historical significance. Somehow it all fits together, creating an elegant ambience which is quite unique to this very special town.

Holidays In Amalfi

Located at the mouth of a deep ravine and surrounded by high, unforgiving cliffs and some of the most spectacular and romantic coastal scenery in Europe, Amalfi is the jewel from which this world famous coastline takes its name.

Amalfi is classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, between 839 and 1,200AD, was one of the most important trading powers in the Mediterranean, rivalling those of the maritime republics of Genoa and Pisa.  It traded with Tunis, Egypt, Palestine, Byzantium and Cyprus.  Open-air cafes and restaurants nestle between buildings of astounding beauty and historical significance.  Somehow it all fits together, creating an elegant ambience which is quite unique to this very special town.

In the 1920s and 1930s, Amalfi was a fashionable, up-market resort beloved of the British aristocracy and it remains so today.  It is an excellent base from which to explore the fashionable resorts of Sorrento, Positano and Ravello and world famous sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

 The magical island of Capri, beloved of the Roman Emperor Tiberius, is easily accessible by boat. Do not miss the opportunity to take a short boat excursion to visit the Grotta dello Smeraldo (the Emerald Grotto) to savour the brilliant green of its waters.

If you choose to hire a car then you will enjoy one of the most dramatic and famous drives in Europe.  The road snakes between rocky outcrops and looks over sheer drops to the sea, hundreds of feet below.  Terraces  of orange, lemon and almond trees cling to the cliffs and mountains tower above.

Amalfi and the Amalfi coast will not disappoint whether you are are young or old and no matter where your interests lie.  It has thrilled many generations and will continue to excite many generations to come.
