"One of Italy's most memorable destinations, the Amalfi Coast, is a Unesco-declared outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape. Seen from towering cliffs, vertigo-inducing heights, and green forests, it is among the most stunning scenes in Europe.
The Amalfi Coast is brimming with historic towns, each more beautiful than the next.
Ravello profoundly affected many people, including DH Lawrence, as he wrote Lady Chatterley's Lover. The town cured Richard Wagner's writer's block and even impressed Gore Vidal so much that he decided to stay in the community for 30 years and become an honorary resident. Ravello has a transformative effect on everyone that visits. Ravello is a town founded in the 5th century as a sanctuary from invaders. Located high on a hill, it was built to contrast other settlements on the coast.
The Amalfi Coast's front-page picture is Positano. It has theatrical, deluxe houses that tumble down to the sea in a torrent of sun-bleached peach, pink, and terracotta. Not to mention its steep streets and steps, which are flanked by wisteria-draped hotels, stylish restaurants, and chic retailers.
Capri is breathtaking. It's hard to find any dirt or laziness in this town. The cliffs go on for miles, and the water is a brilliant blue. Trees are groomed, and villas bring back memories of Rome.
Sorrento is a little town with a big reputation. This quaint village is well-known for its lemons, high-end hotels, and breathtaking cliffs.
Tourism has been a part of this town for a long time. In the 19th century, tourism was mandatory on the 'Grand Tour,' sparking interest in the city. This led to other literary geniuses vacationing in Sorrentine, including Byron, Goethe, Dickens, and Tolstoy.
