Amalfi Coast


"A piece of heaven fallen down to earth" – that’s the way the locals fondly describe their Amalfi Coast.

White cubic houses hugging the mountain slopes, a play of colors arising from the deep blue of the sea and the brilliant green of the landscape as well as a past rich in history characterize one of the most beautiful coasts of the world – the Costiera Amalfitana.

An enchanting region

The Amalfi Coast – pure romance

The Amalfi coast, located south of Naples along the Gulf of Salerno, is one of the most romantic travel destinations in Italy, a symphony of colors and forms which is second to none in the world.
Breathtaking views from the steep coast onto the deep blue sea, strolls through picturesque villages laid out in steep terraces, leisurely hiking tours through vineyards and olive groves, sweat-provoking excursions into the steep mountains of the hinterland (rising up to 1,400 m!) [,] with canyons and jagged rocks, or relaxing afternoons at a small bay and the red sun disappearing into the sea off the Isle of Capri...- doesn’t this start you dreaming while still at home?

Nature and culture in harmony

The charm of the landscape lies, above all, in the unique interplay of blue sea, lively coastal towns and wildly jagged steep coast. Even the Greeks and Romans were struck by the beauty of this region, a region for centuries accessible only from the sea or on foot by mountain paths.

The entire coastal region was named after Amalfi, where, in the 10th century, the first maritime republic of Italy was founded, which had far-reaching trade relations. It was not until Pisa and Genoa became more powerful that it lost its economic significance. Since the 19th century at the latest, however, the Amalfi coast has been part of every great journey to Italy, the construction of the coastal road in 1857 having greatly advanced its accessibility and development. At that time, the Amalfi coast quickly became famous and artists and intellectuals from all over Europe settled there. The coastal road, winding and very narrow in some places, with pendent rocks and steep precipices, is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. 

A paradise for those who love "being active" during their holidays: well marked-out hiking routes, old "donkey" trails and rarely used side roads disclose the rural face of the "Amalfitana" to hikers and cyclists.
