Luxury Amalfi Holidays

Sheer cliffs and sunny piazzas

Amalfi

The Amalfi Coast’s namesake town is a real beauty – houses iced in pastel colours nestle in the Valle dei Mulini, looking like a perfectly decorated cake. Its narrow streets are easily walkable, leading you to pretty churches, age-old towers and townhouses accessorised with painted shutters. There’s a generous helping of eateries, too, from bustling cafés and pizzerias to shoebox-sized trattorie hidden down quiet lanes.

The town’s headline act is its cathedral. Perched at the top of a long flight of steps, it looms over a vibrant piazza and features an 11th-century campanile and a gorgeous interior. During the summer months, the piazza is filled with al-fresco diners sipping on a caffè and enjoying the laid-back, Italian way of life.

A two-minute walk from the piazza brings you out at the seafront, where there’s a little beach and a harbour – boats from here chug up and down the Amalfi Coast, as well as over to Capri.
