Brilliant blue seas, twisting roads and scenic villages make up this simply stunning stretch of coastline.
The Amalfi Coast is undoubtedly one of Italy’s most beautiful areas. With its colourful fishing villages, rugged cliffs and sun-kissed beaches, it’s easy to see why the coastline of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula is such a popular holiday destination.
The towns on the Amalfi coast are famous for their style and glamour, with chic boutiques, sophisticated restaurants and top-class hotels at every turn. With so much to see and do, it’s no wonder this region attracts leading artists and writers from around the globe.
Our luxury holidays on the Amalfi Coast invite you to stay in some of Italy’s best hotels and its most scenic locations. Favourite places to stay include Sorrento, the island of Capri and Maratea. Whether you’re exploring the historical buildings or sunbathing by the sea, these idyllic resorts are ideal for a relaxing break in the sun.
One of the Amalfi Coast’s most beautiful towns is Sorrento, situated on a narrow peninsula. This coastal town is a terrific base from which to explore the Amalfi Coast, with plenty of unspoilt countryside nearby. Nestled on a cliff, it’s known for its sweeping sea views, historic square lined with bustling cafés and a picturesque 14th-century church.
If you want to indulge in a spot of retail therapy, Sorento has a selection of stylish boutiques and quaint shops selling ceramics, lacework and intarsio (a type of marquetry).
With Azure’s luxury holidays in Sorrento, you can stay in historic mansions and plush seafront hotels with all the comforts and decadence associated with a bygone area.
The spectacular island of Capri has been attracting visitors for centuries. You can either choose to stay on the island itself or visit for the day from Sorrento.
The two main resorts on the island are Capri Town and Anacapri, both of which offer a variety of luxurious shops, sophisticated restaurants and lavish hotels.
Beyond the hustle and bustle of the towns, you’ll discover the island’s untouched charm and natural beauty. One of the area’s most popular attractions is the dazzling Blue Grotto, which you can visit with a charming boat trip. The island is also known for its ancient Roman sites.
Maratea is on the Basilicata Coast just south of the Amalfi Coast. The area consists of a collection of small coastal villages festooned with lush vegetation and rugged coves.
Offering a laid-back atmosphere, Maratea is the ideal place to stay if you want to enjoy peace and quiet without sacrificing activities. Here, days are best spent going on leisurely boat rides, visiting hilltop churches and exploring the beautiful bays. Alternatively, sit back and relax with a coffee in one of the sun-drenched plazas and watch the world go by.
An array of excursions
While staying on the Amalfi Coast, you can take short excursions to an array of enticing destinations. Why not visit the historic city of Naples, famously the home of the pizza? You can also make the short journey to the imposing Mount Vesuvius, and to nearby Herculaneum and Pompeii. Standing in the shadow of the volcano, both of these ancient towns were buried by pyroclastic flows in an eruption that occured in AD 79.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
