Historic yet elegantly modern, stunningly beautiful yet bracingly rugged, the Amalfi Coast runs southeast from the Gulf of Naples, along the crenellated shoreline to pretty Salerno. Against a backdrop of rocky slopes studded with stone pines, a bewitching collection of cathedrals, towers and clusters of pastel-coloured houses cling to cliffs which rise vertiginously from the impossibly blue waters of the Tyrrenhian Sea. There's no better way to experience this awe-inspiring area than with a holiday rental, which gives you the freedom to set your own schedule while offering you home comforts such as a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living area. Check out Expedia's great selection of private holiday homes, apartments and villas on the Amalfi Coast, which range from airy beachside apartments to rustic clifftop hideaways, and you're bound to find something that suits you, at a price which fits your budget. So if you're planning a trip to Italy and are searching for holiday homes, the Amalfi Coast is the ideal place to hang your hat.
A trip to the Amalfi Coast comes with the freedom to do as much, or as little, as you like. It's enough to pick a spot on the beach in laid-back Ravello and devote yourself fully to relaxation, pausing only to wander idly into the surrounding streets in search of the perfect scialatielli ai frutti di mare seafood pasta. Equally, you can make the most of your trip by hiring a car and exploring the region's nooks and crannies. Or, for a hassle-free way to see the coast in classic Italian style, book a Private Amalfi Coast Sightseeing Tour on a Vintage Vespa.
Start your adventure in Amalfi itself with an amble past pastel-coloured houses and around bends which offer enchanting glimpses of the sea. The town's charming beach is the perfect spot to relax on a sun lounger and let your cares drift away, and in the summer the sea is warm and calm, perfect for swimming. To get a sense of the region's fascinating past, head for the Piazza del Duomo to visit the 9th-century Cattedrale di Sant'Andrea, which is home to the relics of St Andrew and whose Romanesque majolica-tiled bell tower is one of the Amalfi Coast's most recognisable landmarks. There are 62 steps leading up to the Cathedral's imposing bronze doors, which date from 1180, but the climb is well worth it to see the interior, with its granite columns and exquisitely painted ceiling. If you're on a romantic break, take note: local legend has it that couples who climb the Cathedral steps hand in hand will never get married!
For a glimpse of glamour, head to elegant Positano, whose apricot-coloured houses decked with hot-pink bougainvillea vines cling dizzyingly to the side of the cliffs. It's a refined, upscale spot that's known for its fine-dining restaurants and its high-end boutiques. And it's home to the Sentiero degli Dei hiking trail, which winds between Nocelle and the lofty hamlet of Agerola. Travel west to wander through the winding streets of stunning Sorrento, or take a boat across the Bay of Naples to idyllic Capri, famed for its elegant ambience, Limoncello liqueur and collection of high-end boutiques. Alternatively, book a Small-Group Trip to Pompeii & Amalfi Coast to experience the unforgettable Roman town of Pompeii, which was perfectly preserved by a tide of volcanic lava after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. With our curated selection of holiday rentals, the Amalfi Coast and its surroundings are just a click away!
