Amalfi Coast, Sorrento and Capri

THE AMALFI COAST: The Land of the Syrens

Stretching about 35 miles along the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula, most famous for the town of Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana) is one of Europe’s most breathtaking sights. Cliffs terraced with scented lemon groves sheer down into sparkling seas; whitewashed villas cling precariously to unforgiving slopes while sea and sky merge in one vast blue horizon.

Positano is the coast’s most expensive and photogenic town and Amalfi itself if a popular day-trip option, with the town of Ravello perched high on a hill looking down over it. Pompei and the Island of Capri are not far away, offering a wealth of activities and sightseeing.

For centuries after the passing of Amalfi’s glory days as a maritime superpower (from the 9th to the 12th centuries), the area was forgotten and left in a beautiful isolation. But it was this very isolation that first drew visitors in the early 1900s, paving the way for the advent of tourism in the latter half of the century. Today the Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s top destinations, a favourite of well-to-do jet-setters and the perfect setting for an incentive. Incredible hotels, beautiful villa venues and Michelin starred restaurants make the Amalfi Coast the perfect destination for an event.
