Introducing the Amalfi Coast

Consider a honeymoon or romantic getaway on the Amalfi Coast – one of the most beguiling honeymoon destinations and breathtaking coastal resort areas in the Mediterranean.

The Amalfi Coast offers a 48km-long scenic coastline of deep ravines, sheer cliffs and rocky promontories layered with paster-coloured villages and scattered with vineyards and olive and lemon groves.

With its huge choice of hotels, stylish boutiques, lively bars and fine dining restaurants, the Amalfi Coast offers all the ingredients you need for a memorable honeymoon or romantic getaway in Italy.

What to do and see

Explore picture-perfect towns clinging to cliff tops above an impossibly blue Mediterranean Sea and nestling among almond, chestnut, oak and pine trees.

Discover stylish Amalfi, exclusive Positano and walk in the footsteps of D.H. Lawrence in romantic Ravello, where the famous author wrote Lady Chatterly's Lover.

The Amalfi Coast is easily explored on foot, bus and car as well as by water taxi, hydrofoil and ferry. The nearby island of Capri is just 25 minutes away from Sorrento by hydrofoil – perfect for a day trip.

Where to stay

Dine on fine Italian cuisine and choose from some of the most picturesque (and luxurious) hotels in Italy.

Find the best deal, compare prices and read what other travellers have to say about hotel accommodation on the Amalfi Coast at TripAdvisor.

Best time to visit the Amalfi Coast

The best time for an Amalfi Coast honeymoon is from April to June and from September to October when the average daily temperature is 22°C. This avoids the summer high-season crowds of July and August when temperatures can soar above 30°C.

Amalfi experiences a mild climate year round, with winters averaging around 15°C.


The Amalfi Coast stretches along the rugged Sorrentine Peninsula south of Naples on the west coast of southern Italy. Amalfi town is around 61km south of Naples, 15km east of Positano and 31km west of Salerno.
