Amalfi Coast Honeymoon Travel Guide
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.
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.
Dine on fine Italian cuisine and choose from some of the most picturesque (and luxurious) hotels in Italy.
Splurge at Ravello’s striking Moorish-inspired Hotel Palazzo Sasso, a 12th century villa; enjoy Amalfi’s most famous hotel, the 5-star Santa Caterina; or try Bellevue Syrene, a sumptuous hotel set in a clifftop garden in the centre of nearby Sorrento – the perfect accommodation for a honeymoon.
