Destination guide

A postcard-perfect holiday at Amalfi Coast vacation resorts

Dramatic landscapes, colourful scenery, fantastic food, a richness of history and heritage – what's not to love about Amalfi Coast? A UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular Italian road trip destination, it's impossible not to fall in love with this strip of rugged coastline on Sorrentine Peninsula's southern shores. With beaches for the kids, shops and nightlife for squad getaways, and plenty of stunning scenery for romantic interludes, Amalfi Coast vacation rentals will ensure you make the most of this Mediterranean jewel.


Amalfi Coast makes a thrilling adventure for history buffs. In the Middle Ages, this place was a thriving trading post and a major naval power. Evidence of that colourful period of the coast's history still stand today, including Amalfi Cathedral. With its dramatic staircase and Romanesque facade, it's said to be the final resting place of the Apostle Andrew. There's a well-preserved ancient Roman villa in the centre of Minori that you can visit for free. The 13th-century Villa Rufolo in Ravello is famous for its gardens and moonlit concerts.

How to get around

Easy ways to get around from Amalfi Coast vacation rentals

The bus is the most convenient way of getting from one village to the next in Amalfi Coast. The SITA Sud bus offers regular service between Salerno and Positano, and stops at most villages along the coast. Most villages on Amalfi Coast spread vertically over the hillside, so exploring individual villages is best done by scooter or on foot.

Food & drink 

Eat like a local from your Amalfi Coast vacation rental

With great ingredients from the sea and the region's rich farmlands, Amalfi Coast is an epicurean dream. Eating is a lifestyle in this corner of the world, and people always try to find excuses to eat. Sampling local cheeses is a must – the people of Amalfi Coast are immensely (and understandably) proud of their dairy products. And because Amalfi Coast is lemon country, a glass of limoncello or lemon liqueur is a common sight on the dinner table. And of course, you shouldn't pass up the chance to savour authentic pizzas and pastas as they're enjoyed in their mother country.
