Amalfi in Italy is a small town and the whole resort coast, which is known for its unique aura of the Middle Ages, "scrambling" on coastal slopes of tiny towns and the magnificent nature of the Mediterranean. All this together has allowed Amalfi to become one of business cards of tourism in Italy.
The total length of the Amalfi coast is about 50 miles. And those 50 miles are one of the most beautiful in Italy, with hidden in the rocks beaches, numerous caves, arches and coves.
Amalfi Coast: resorts
Amalfi Coast today includes 13 small resorts. In addition to the Amalfi the resort area include:

So, Vietri sul Mare is known for its unique pottery, Tramonti - the atmosphere of rural Italy and excellent wines, Minori - ancient Rome sights, Positano is one of the most exciting coastal resorts, which in his story described the famous American writer John Steinbeck.

Among the most famous sights are: the Roman Villa Chimbrone in Ravello, fjords in Furore, the Duomo cathedral in Amalfi, medieval churches in Atrani and famous Gods Path between the cities of Agerola, Praiano and Positano, which offers, perhaps, one of the best in Italy panoramas of the picturesque rocky coast and the "toy" neighborhoods of the resorts.
