Marina di Furore, Amalfi Coast

Concierge.com's insider take:

If you can find somewhere to ditch your car (no easy task) as you maneuver the tortuous coast road between Positano and Amalfi, scramble down the stone steps to another timeless world in Marina di Furore. Located at the sea end of Italy's only fjord, the beautifully restored village is a cliff-hugging cluster of houses painted sunny colors and daubed with works by local artists. There's a tiny beach, a sprinkling of brightly painted boats pulled up on the strand, and a grandly named Ecomuseo housed in an old paper mill, which pays homage to such local wonders as painted houses (naturally), the extraordinary flora of the gorge, and onetime residents Anna Magnani and Roberto Rossellini—he shot his film Amore here before abandoning Magnani for Ingrid Bergman. Note that opening times are erratic.—Lee Marshall
