Amalfi Coast for Children – Family Travel
Amalfi Coast is an example of a Mediterranean landscape combining of great beauty and gripping drama: coastal mountains plunge into the sea in a stunning vertical scene of precipitous crags, picturesque towns and lush forests.
Legendary Positano and Amalfi are among the glittering string of coastal gems, while mountaintop Ravello has the glossy fame of its grandiose villas and Wagnerian connection.
Amalfi Coast gateway Sorrento is a handsome and venerable cliff-top resort that has miraculously survived the onslaught of package tourism.
Aside from its sheer beauty, the region is home to some superb restaurants and hotels. It is also one of Italy’s top spots for hiking, with well-marked trails providing a great means of getting away from the coastal clamor.
Expect to be surprised…

Expect to come away wanting more…
This is what Amalfi Coast does best and we hope it will do it for you!
