Holidays to the Amalfi Coast give colourful clifftop vibes, eye-popping coastal vistas and picturesque piazzas.

Hillside settings

The Amalfi Coast is one good-looking getaway. Rolling greenery is dotted with the pinks, greens and blues of teetering towns that look out to sea. Positano and Amalfi are the top models for this distinctive look. Swanky shopping streets and boujee bars come thick and fast, and for every glimpse or keyhole through the buildings to the water, there’s an Insta snap waiting. This is no joke – the roads around here are ranked among the most scenic in the world.

Foodies and first-class sands

Your tastebuds are in for a treat on the Amalfi Coast – it’s a haven for hearty, home-cooked Italian food. Creamy cheeses from mountain farms are used to whip up age-old pasta dishes, and generations of fishermen have kept the seafood game strong. Ravello’s red wines are raved about, and the town’s Piazza Duomo is one of the most picturesque spots for a coffee and a pastry. In Maiori, the snacking comes with sunbathing – it’s got one of the best sandy beaches about.

Traditional touches

Away from the popular pair of Amalfi and Positano, the rest of the region’s cast are tip-top on tradition. In Minori, an ancient Roman villa is the pick of the historic hotspots, and there’s a basilica that’s been about since the 1700s. Conca dei Marini’s cobbled streets are like a step back in time, and Scala’s ornate cathedral is a must-see.
