“Thank you for all your help, and the office staff.
Overall, we had a lovely time. The scenery of the Cilento National Park is spectacular. Walking holidays are very popular now and people are always looking for new places to walk. We will certainly recommend the area to our friends, with the proviso they check out the current state of the trails if they are going to do walking.
We are thinking of doing a cycle tour in Puglia at some stage in the future, and will definitely keep your company in mind.
One final point regarding the accommodation. We particularly liked B&B Vittoria as the owners were very accommodating and friendly & sat down to dinner with us which was a great opportunity to practice our conversational Italian. All the best.”
An Amalfi Coast holiday features some of the most amazing coastline in all of Europe. Enjoy amazing seafood, stay in luxurious hotels and marvel at the awe-inspiring scenery in this unforgettable slice of paradise. There is no shortage of panoramic views of the sea as you tour the Amalfi Coast and cover other equally beautiful cities from Naples to Sorrento and end in Salerno.
Stop off at Capri — one of the most picturesque islands on the Amalfi Coast. It is home to unique shops and trendy bistros as well as secluded coves and the Blue Grotto, a hidden enchanted sea cave.
Don’t miss out on visting the ruins to Pompeii. The city was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and the ruins offer a glimpse into the treasures unearthed from the ash and what daily life was like in an average Roman town 2000 years ago.
Enjoy panoramic vistas of the sea from the cliff-top town of Sorrento. While there do not miss out on the magnificent Museum Correale that has an impressive collection of Neapolitan art and crafts.
Walk through the charming city of Naples. Full of history, museums and incredible cafes, the city is also home to world-class opera and theaters.
When in the quaint seaside village of Positano, head to the beach at Spiaggia Grande for the best views of both the village and the spectacular views of the sea.
While renting a car is the most popular way to explore this side of Italy, you can also easily get around the coast via the high-speed train from any major city. The most scenic way to get around is by ferry.
Make Sorrento your base. From here you can easily hop on a ferry to Capri, catch the Circumvesuviana to Pompeii or take the SITA bus to any of the small seaside villages. Sorrento is connected to Naples by train or ferry, so getting luggage to and from stops is simple.
Book your trip for either May – June or September – October for good weather and better accommodation deals. Although the weather is at its best during high season July – August, it also brings a lot of crowd. If you must visit during high season, get an early morning start to avoid the crowded ferries and buses.
Rent tour boat while visiting the island of Capri as it is the best way to see this amazing island. You will be taken around the island to get the best views of the gorgeous grottos, famous Faraglioni rocks and of course, the Blue Grotto. If your driver is willing, visit the blue grotto when it is “closed”, this experience will be unforgettable.
Don’t leave without taking home the amazing local crafts and treats to remind you of your Amalfi Coast holiday. Indulge yourself in local handmade pottery, sandals and a bottle of the famous Limoncello (lemon flavored liqueur).
Venture off the beaten path. Café’s and boutiques on the main streets of coastal towns are way more expensive than those hidden from view. Wander down the charming winding lanes and discover amazing places to eat and shop that are not crowded.
