"The Beautiful Amalfi Coast" Top 5 Page for this destination Amalfi by unravelau

Amalfi Travel Guide: 255 reviews and 728 photos

The best bus trip in Italy.

The pictured part of the coastline is actually Sorrento, and called that at the points where I have taken these photos. I have been just now corrected by a new friend (I hope), Giuseppe who is the top tip maker for Positano,and an expert on the area. Thank you Giuseppe.

Such a long way down.

The Sorrento part of the coastline.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The most amazing views that I have ever seen
  • Cons:Travelling to and from Amalfi and surrounding towns is on a very narrow road with many hairpin bends.
  • In a nutshell:A wonderful place to visit but I wouldn't like to live ther.
  • Last visit to Amalfi: Aug 1998

    5 year anniversary ratings rewards!!! Some of the pictures remind me of Santorini.

    I'm not a "beach-goer" but like cliffs and sea, and the Tyrrhenian is beautiful with your descriptions, Carole. Think Ulysses listened to the mermaids here between the Sorrento Peninsula and Capri; their songs added to the beauty. I will go there one day!

    Great photos of this wonderful coastline -- I've never been but hope to one day -- the bus journey sounds like it's not for vertigo sufferers !

    The Amalfi coast is really beautiful. I haven't been there for 15 years, but hope to go back one day.

    Amalfi, what's not to like! I didn't even know about the grotto until about a month ago, thanks for sharing.
