So, exactly where is the Amalfi Coast?
Known in Italian as Costiera Amalfitana, the Amalfi Coast is located along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula in the Campania region.
A 30 mile stretch of coastline described by UNESCO as “an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape, with exceptional cultural and natural scenic values resulting from its dramatic topography and historical evolution”.
The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s most memorable destinations. The coast is also known for its picturesque towns perched on the cliffs overlooking the sea.
The coastline embodies thirteen characteristic towns; Amalfi, Atrani, Cetara, Conca dei Marini, Furore, Maiori, Minori, Positano, Praiano, Ravello, Scala, Tramonti and Vietri sul Mare. All thirteen towns with their own unique traditions.
How to get there?
You will want to fly into Naples. From the airport you can grab a bus or taxi into the city where connecting trains will take you to Sorrento or Salerno. Both are located at either end of the coastline and make great starting points for your adventure along the coast.
