Nestled along the rugged shoreline of Italy lies a stretch of paradise, where dreams are painted with hues of turquoise seas, vibrant cliffside villages and an aroma of citrus in the air. Welcome to the Amalfi Coast, a slice of heaven on Earth, beckoning travellers to its UNESCO World Heritage embrace. A mere 50 kilometres in length, yet overflowing with historical charm and natural beauty, this coastline just begs to be explored.

Positano’s Coastal Charm

Dive into the elegance of Positano, a captivating town nestled on the cliffs above the Mediterranean Sea. Head to Spiaggia Grande, the bustling beachfront where azure water meet the towering cliffs adorned with whitewashed villas. Here, the iconic Church of Santa Maria Assunta stands proudly. Legend has it that this church was built to honour a Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary, lending an air of mystique to Positano's already magical aura.

Pompeii's Timeless Wonders

No visit to the Amalfi Coast is complete without a pilgrimage to Pompeii, the ancient city frozen in time by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Step back into the pages of history as you wander through the remarkably preserved streets, where ancient temples, grand villas and poignant frescoes tell the story of a civilization lost and found. Marvel at the haunting beauty of the Forum, the heart of Pompeii's political and social life, where the past lingers among the ruins.
