Amalfi Overview

Amalfi lies at the mouth of a deep ravine at the foot of Monte Cerrasto. It is the main town on one of the most beautiful and celebrated areas in the world: the Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana).

The Amalfi coast stretches for less than fifty miles along the beautiful, warm, inviting shores of the Mediterranean Ocean, but in these few miles are packed more beauty, more history and more romance than almost anywhere else on earth. It is said that the Amalfi coast of Italy was once the romantic hideaway of the ancient gods themselves, and it is easy to understand why.

Majestic, beautiful cliffs tumble into the blue sea with towns and villages perched along their sides, clinging to them as if by magic. This tiny stretch of coastline seems to be part of its own, wondrous world, quite separate from the cares and stresses of the real world. Along the Amalfi coast, there are no clocks; there is only the gentle rhythm of the sea to keep time. In fact, time seems to stand still while you immerse yourself in the gentle pulse of this special place.
