For well-heeled travellers in search of idyllic scenery, pretty hillside communes and the promise of la dolce vita, Italy's Amalfi Coast provides the ultimate prescription. For romance and luxurious escape, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, from Positano all the way to Vietri sul Mare, is without peer. The Amalfi Coast, popular with Euro elite since the dawn of the last century, has been celebrated in literature by the likes of John Steinbeck for good reason. Towns like Positano, Praiano, Ravello and indeed, Amalfi, simply materialize as if out of a fairy tale. Exquisite pastel villas and palazzi carved into rugged, jagged hills, perched precariously over the Gulf of Salerno. It's enough to coax the artist out of anybody.
Attractions not to miss on the coast include the Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, Church of Santa Maria Assunta in Positano, Church of Santa Maria di Grado in Conca dei Marini and the Grotto Esmeralda in Conca dei Marini. Of course, if you just want to lounge at a roadside café in Positano like a rock star, that will do just fine to capture a veritable Amalfi Coast experience.
Despite mild Mediterranean winters, the best time to visit the Amalfi Coast is in the gorgeous summer season.
- Winter (December to February) 4-12°C
- Spring (March to May) 8-22°C
- Summer (June to September) 16-30°C
- Fall (October to November) 8-22°C
