Amalfi Coast see + do

The Costiera Amalfitana turns vertical living into an art form. Hotels burrow into the rock and send guests down to the beach by elevator; while in Positano, the sheer hillside is terraced not with vines but with white-and-pastel houses, each one seemingly rooted in its neighbor's roof. The rugged setting is softened by splashes of greenery: Lemon trees stride up the hillside in a series of giant steps, and every handkerchief-sized plot of flat land has been turned into a garden, an orchard, or a vegetable patch. A single, narrow road winds precariously along the 25 miles of rocky coastline, with the occasional hairpin variant branching off to traverse the saw-toothed ridge of the Monti Lattari, which separates the coast from Sorrento and the Bay of Naples to the north. Amalfi town is the area's big cultural draw, but the breathtaking coastline itself is the real reason for coming here.
