You're not dreaming of an unreachable paradise. This place is real, so mark it in your itinerary of places to travel next!
With a fine balance between ancient old buildings and green hills, seaside homes in Amalfi undauntedly lean upon cliff-sides and gaze upon the marvellous harbor. In the 1920s and 1930s, Amalfi was a popular European luxury holiday destination for the British upper class and aristocracy.
Today, Amalfi remains a popular tourist destination, along with other towns along the Amalfi Coast, such as Positano, Ravello, Praiano, and others. Located in the province of Salerno with its lush beauty, Amalfi is the main town on the coast and is officially listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
