This most beautiful and very much praised stretch of mountainous coastline situated just to the south of Naples was famous for decades as a group of fishing villages, stacked precariously above the sea. Nowadays this area has become one of Italy's major tourist attractions and a staggering number of hotels have been squeezed into the small towns spaces.
Well-accustomed to catering for affluent foreign tourists, the area offers a generous selection of restaurants, bars, boutiques, boat trips.. just about anything self-indulgent to make your holiday a most comfortable and pleasurable one.
Although prices are generally high, there are affordable options in the area. Some find the region over-developed and over-crowded, especially in the height of summer, but for many the little boutiques, ceramic shops and the welcome laid on for tourists is part of the coastline's charm.

The main town of the coast is, of course, Amalfi, and this makes a good base for exploring the area. Other popular destinations are Ravello, famous for its beautiful gardens perched high in the mountains above the sea, and for its classical music concerts and Positano, on the coast to the west of Amalfi, a traditionally 'posh' resort, where incredibly well-dressed tourists wander past exclusive boutiques before dining at even more exclusive restaurants.
