Holidays in Amalfi typify the world famous Amalfi Coast experience, with stunning scenery, oodles of history and all the pasta you can eat! This is not the Costa del Sol, so we're not necessarily talking bargain holidays or last minute holidays. After all, the Italians know they've got something of a treasure here. But for summer holidays that live in the memory, it's worth every penny.
The beach is typically Italian, clean and safe, with regimented beds and swarthy youths playing volleyball. As for the hotels, they also reflect the time-honoured tradition in Italy, with little concession to new ideas like all inclusive holidays. However, you'll find it difficult to fault the hospitality and facilities, not to mention the amazing views and then there's the charming, family-run Hotel Belvedere, which has not only one of the biggest pools on the Amalfi Coast, but undoubtedly one of the most panoramic!
If you can drag yourself away from the beach, Amalfi town is a delight for shopaholics and foodies. Wander up past the steep steps which lead up to the exquisite Duomo and a pedestrianised street climbs the hillside, lined with cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops packed with all things lemony, including variously shaped bottles of the famous limoncello liqueur, a local speciality.
