The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's most piercing destinations. Here, mountains plunge into the sea in a nail-biting vertical scene of precipitous crags, cliff-clinging abodes and verdant woodland. The landscape is immensely varied and surrounded by infinite ever changing views.
It can be typical Mediterranean, intoxicated by wild perfumed herbs, with myrtle shrubs, thyme, rosemary and mastic trees, or almost alpine with meadows and bare rocks.
We will walk the coastline of Amalfi, visit the popular Positano town and relax on one or two of the beautiful beaches. The highlights of the long weekend will include hiking, sightseeing, relaxation on the beach, shopping, dining, boat trips and some nightlife.
