With a thrill every 100 yards and a photo op at nearly every bend, the Amalfi Coast is probably the most beautiful 30 miles of coastline in the world. The region’s fairytale towns, like postcard-perfect Positano and the magical mountain enclave of Ravello, are national treasures that have long attracted curious travelers. Even the ancient Romans vacationed here. On top of its natural beauty, the region is a cornucopia of culinary goodies, making it the envy of food lovers worldwide. The Amalfi Coast was deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, nodding not only to the stunning landscape but also to the clever way humans adapted to the dramatic terrain with precariously perched villages and terraced vineyards and orchards.
