La Amalfi Coast, this splendid area of ​​Campania, is renowned for its historical and environmental wealth, in fact since 1977 it became part of the Unesco heritage.
A strip of coast that extends for over ten kilometers boasting a crystal clear sea and beautiful landscape views and architectural treasures.
In this post I will advise you where to stay and what to see in this wonderful land of seaside villages.



An excellent solution is to stay in Maiori presso the three-star hotel, De Rosa. A hotel a few meters from the sea, spacious, bright, clean, simple rooms but with all the necessary comforts and in a marine style painted in white and blue.
Despite the renowned location, the price is reasonable. In July we spent 35 euros per room per night for bed and breakfast, but they also offer half board and full board. In summer, the abundant breakfast is served on a panoramic terrace with a suggestive view, ideal for starting a beach holiday.
The staff died courteous and also the Hotel has a parking, which at the time of booking I recommend asking for availability as it is not very large.


To visit Maiori and the surrounding towns I recommend move by ferry, as well as to enjoy the wonderful view also to avoid traffic which unfortunately can be found a problem given the narrow streets that characterize this area.


From the small port of Maiori the ferry connects to the main centers of the coast with a frequency of two hours. In two - three days you will certainly be able to see all the surrounding villages and other renowned tourist cities of the Amalfi coast.

Among the tourist centers not to be missed I absolutely recommend you Amalfi, Praiano and Positano, each of them characterized by climbing between the sea and the cliffs behind. Be prepared for big climbs but it's really worth it when you see beautiful views and angles to photograph.

To eat there is plenty of choice, ovuqneu there are small typical and local trattorias overlooking the sea where you can have lunch or dinner. The prices are not low cost, so if you want to save money, go into the inner villages where small characteristic taverns await you with much more reasonable prices.
La Campania cuisine it offers really tasty dishes, from buffalo mozzarella to the sweet pastry sfogliatella and excellent local wines. On the other hand, it is known that southern cuisine is a great Italian pride.
In any case, at each stop of the ferry you will find excellent sandwich shops and small shops where you can taste delicious sandwiches and other delicacies from Campania at really low cost prices.


If you have several days available for your holiday on the Amalfi Coast, go up to the town of Ravello, especially in the evening, where the illuminated landscape is even more suggestive and above all romantic. Worth seeing is the Palazzo Rufolo, surrounded by splendid gardens, which hosts numerous concerts in the summer.
