Surely you know it, that you have seen it a lot of times in movies, or it has appeared as a setting in many books that you have read … Now I propose you to really go through it , visiting its small villages and admiring its landscapes live and direct.
The Amalfi Coast is in the Italian region of Campania. It is a stretch of Italian coastline bathed by the Tyrrhenian Sea, between Sorrento and the Gulf of Salerno, which attracts great tourist interest due to the natural beauty of the environment and the charm of its small towns and villages. Of course, if you decide to visit this paradise on earth, do it now, before tourists settle the area when summer is more advanced.
Glamor, nature and charming towns
The geographical area that borders the Amalfi coast is of incredible beauty. It is a strip of land that Italians call the “coast”, which is limited on one side by the sea and on the other by the Lattari mountains. The road that runs along the coast winds between steep slopes and cliffs, and one by one passes through villages of special beauty: Positano, Amalfi, Cetara, Ravello, Paraiano, etc.
The most important of all, and the one that gives the area its name, is Amalfi , a town of pastel-colored houses and narrow streets that slopes down the mountainside to the beach. It is closed to traffic, which is a success since in summer it is one of the most visited tourist spots in the area.
For a reason, UNESCO declared the Amalfi Coast a World Heritage Site in 1997. In fact, I have read somewhere that when Amalfi people die and arrive in paradise they feel at home. It is not surprising that this small corner of the Mediterranean has attracted the cream of society for decades: Hollywood actors and actresses (Humphrey Bogart and Greta Garbo were regulars of the place) displayed their glamor , and great writers and playwrights were they inspired in that beautiful land (Henrik Ibsen wrote his famous "Doll’s House" there). Therefore, do not hesitate and escape to explore the Amalfi coast. Contemplating the sunset over the sea will be unforgettable.
