Italy

Amalfi Coast & Sorrento

A romantic & dramatic slice of Italy

Plunging theatrically into the depths of the Mediterranean, the vision of pastel towns clinging to rugged cliffs makes the Amalfi Coast unforgettable. The pretty fishing villages and chic towns nestled into the rock face harbour a jumble of fascinating architectural sights and stylish boutiques, and are linked by vertiginous roads with incredible views. The resort of Sorrento is the gateway to the region: handsomely perched on the clifftop of the Sorrentine Peninsula and revered by the Grand Tourists of the 19th century, it still retains its charm despite being one of Italy’s most popular destinations.
