There’s few places in the world as picture-perfect as the UNESCO-lined Amalfi Coast, and the glamorous town of Amalfi itself. Winding alleys and roads lead on to pretty, bustling piazzas, overlooked by magnificent medieval buildings such as the Cattedrale di Sant'Andrea with its wonderful frescoed crypt, and hills bursting with lemons, used to make the world-famous liqueur, limoncello. Amalfi has a few beaches, with Marina Grande being the main one. Lined with bars and cafes, it’s time to don your oversized shades, sit back, and soak up the atmosphere. Take a boat trip out to the Emerald Grotto, a cave that got its name for the incredible nuances of green that filter in from an underground opening – a natural work of art. Well worth seeing is the Museo della Carta – the paper museum. Amalfi is famous for its handmade paper and you’ll find many shops selling greeting cards, intricately-bound leather notebooks.
