阿马尔菲海岸(Amalfi Coast)是全球最美的地方之一,被誉为“人间天堂”。有着典型的南欧风情:热烈的阳光,湛蓝的海水,柔和的沙滩,可谓度假的胜地。这里的海岸线蜿蜒曲折,山谷与海岬交错,这眼前的一切就会让你甘愿时间就停住在这一刻。

Facing the Tyrhennian Sea, in the Campania region of southern Italy, the Amalfi Coast seems to be one grand balcony suspended between the crystal blue of the Tyrhennian sea and the idyllic Lattari mountains, with a long stretches of sparkling coastline, towering cliffs dotted with citrus and olive groves, terraced vineyards, pastures and small towns perching on the cliffsides. The vista is magnificent!

This rugged stretch of coastline winding its way between Gulf of Naples to the Gulf of Salerno, comprising 13 splendid towns , Amalfi, Atrani, Cetara, Conca deiMarini, Furore,Maiori, Minori, Positano, Praiano, Ravello, Scala, Tramonti, andVietri sul Mare.

Each town features a different atmosphere, has its own unique traditions,  preserved their centuries-old charm and the threads. However, there’s something in common, the spectacular beaches and balmy weather! 


Landscape of enormous beauty, this jewel of Mediterranean has continued to lure visitors for many centuries.

The Amalfi Coast was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. 


A graceful city, surrounded by dramatic cliffs and azure sea, Amalfi is the heart of this magnificent Italian coastline and a must-see town on your Amalfi Coast adventure. Amalfi was the capital of the Maritime Republic known as the Duchy of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200. Thus, the town gives its name to the coast. At the center of the main square is the beautiful Cathedral of St. Andrew, features a marvelous stairway, cloister and the Arab-Norman style bell tower . The Handmade Paper Museum and the Ancients Arsenals of the Republic Musuem also worth a visit. The stunning multi-coloured houses and labyrinthine alleyways are wonderful to behold. A good place to relax and soak up the sun !  


The Medieval village of Atrani is marked by small alleys, arches, courts, tiny piazzas and characteristic stairs. The monumental complex of Santa Maria Maddalenais, with its Baroque façade, lively dome tiled with majolica, and elegant bell tower, is the symbol of the village. Atrani offers visitors picturesque views as well as the pleasure to spend relaxing moments in the main square, away from the mass tourism. If you go, be sure to see the stupendous piazzetta on the sea.


Cetara is a quaint fishermen's village on the Amalfi Coast. It's one of Italy's main centres for tuna fishing and known as food lovers' hotspot. The Tower of Cetara, built in 1576 on an old tower basis,  is now a museum of fishing.
