The Amalfi Coast: one of Italy’s most spectacular locations The Costiera Amalfitana (Amalfi Coast) starts from below the city of Sorrento all along the Bay of Salerno. There is only one main route crossing the territory, the Strada Statale 163, also known as the Amalfi Drive which passes by the main municipalities pinpointing the coast, from the eastern village, Vietri sul Mare, to Maiori, Minori, Ravello and Positano among others.
Amalfi is the main town giving the name to the coast and is actually a longstanding resort dating back to early Middle Ages when the city-state was one of the maritime republics of the Italian peninsula competing with Genoa, Venice and Pisa. Here you can visit the main historical and cultural attractions of the coast and discover the particular artistic style blending Norman baroque to typical Byzantine traits in the Cathedral of Sant’Andrea, the convent of Cappuccini and the Chiostro del Paradiso.
Finding a hotel in the Amalfi Coast Villa Felice Relais is located in the town of Amalfi with easy access to the Amalfi beach resorts and on an amazing panoramic location from which you can enjoy an undisrupted landscape view going from Conca dei Marini to Capo d’Orso.
