Amalfi Coast, Sorrento & Capri

Amalfi Coast, Sorrento & Capri

Home to some of Italy's most famed views

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.  

Sorrento

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.

Capri

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

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.
