Vacation Rentals in Amalfi

  Vacation Rentals & Homes in Amalfi One of the world's most famous road trips, the Amalfi Drive (aka SS163) is also arguably the most beautiful 48 kilometers of coastline in Italy, and certainly high on the list of Italy's top tourist attractions. Carved into cliffs that are already cut by deep ravines, the road clings high above the Tyrrhenian Sea in a series of breathtaking views and curves bounded by almost vertical mountains rising on one side and long vertical drops on the other You don't need to drive it yourself, and unless you're used to Italian roads, you probably shouldn't. One thing is sure: if you do drive, you won't see much of the scenery. It's no place to take your eyes off the road, even for a second, and there are very few places to stop. The most popular alternative is to take the bus. These run frequently and stop in the towns, so you can get off, look around, go for a swim, have a coffee or lunch, and get back on a later bus. Depending on the section of the route, SITA buses run every hour or two. The town of Amalfi is the favorite stopping point, especially for travelers taking two days for the trip. One thing to remember: if you go by bus, go west to east, beginning in Sorrento, and try for a window seat on the right side of the bus. If you're driving, go east to west, so you'll be on the inside lane. Plan your travels along this spectacular drive with this handy visitors' guide to the top attractions of the Amalfi Coast. Amalfi's vertiginous streets, belvederes, cascading flowers, and ever-changing views of the blue sea below make Amalfi one of Italy's most delightful places to visit. Almost as trendy as Positano's, Amalfi's Marina Grande has its share of glam, but the 200 meters of sand has a free area at each end for those who don't want to fork out for space with the smart set. Like Positano's, this Marina Grande will be crowded. Amalfi's cathedral, Duomo di Sant'Andrea, rises majestically at the top of a long staircase (nearly everything in Amalfi is reached by stairs), with a geometric patterned façade, striped columns, and a dome resplendent in Majolica tiles. Climb the stairs to see the magnificent bronze doors; the ornate crypt with its frescoes; and the lovely Chiostro del Paradiso, a cloister with a serene garden.
