<p>Arguably one of the most spectacular and dramatic stretches of coastline in the world, the famous Amalfi Coast attracts millions of visitors from all over the world each year, all of whom are attracted by an irresistible mix of stunning scenery, spectacular hotels, fine dining, endless stretches of sparkling blue sea and a fresh old world glamour. There's plenty to see and do, too, with activities ranging from cooking classes and wine tastings to hiking, day trips to Capri and Salerno, and visits further afield to the world-famous archaeological sites of Herculaneum and Paestum.</p>

<p><img decoding=See below 10 things you can do:

Drive the road of a thousand turns

Or, better yet, have someone else drive you. More specifically, enjoy a white-knuckle ride that, in its 60-odd kilometers from Positano to Vietri-sul-Mare in the east, weaves in and out of deep gorges and slices through whitewashed villages, lemon groves and olive groves, all with setting of the shining sea. But if you're concentrating on driving, you won't see anything, so either hire a car with a driver or hop on one of the big buses so you can just sit back and enjoy.

Visit Positano

Positano is packed with tourists in the summer months, but it's still beautiful, its pastel-hued houses falling into the cliffside and stretching along the beach like a movie set. There's not much to do but wander the narrow streets of tiny shops selling linen clothes and bejeweled sandals, or sit on hotel terraces sipping champagne (a tourist favorite is Aldo's Bar in Sirenuse). Hire a boat for excursions along the rocky coast or to the Li Galli Islands and don't miss a visit to the Roman Villa.

Dive into Positano's ancient past

Only open to the public since 2018, the Roman Villa of Positano lies several meters below the church of Santa Maria Assunta – buried in the same eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. who destroyed Pompeii. At the moment, only one room is visible, but what a room! The walls of the triclinium (dining room) are covered with exceptionally well-preserved and detailed paintings in a vibrant riot of red, blue, green and rich Pompeian ochre. Access is via transparent corridors suspended above the room.

<p><strong>Enjoy peaceful Praiano</strong></p>
<p>A few photogenic bends in the road just east of bustling Positano lies the sprawling, quiet village of Praiano. With plenty of good restaurants and hotels, it makes a good, low-key base for exploring the coast. Sip a cappuccino at Bar Sole on the main street, explore the steep, quiet lanes and visit the studio of quirky ceramist Paolo Sandulli, housed in an ancient watchtower. Time for a swim? Steep steps lead down to La Gavitella beach. grab a sun lounger at the super-cool One Fire beach club and stay for a sunset.</p>
<p><strong>Enjoy classy Ravello</strong></p>
<p>Ravello is the high aristocracy of the coast of Amalfi. Artists, writers and musicians have been drawn to the dreamy gardens and spectacular views for centuries, and it's still a hugely atmospheric place, especially if you stay overnight. Visit the gardens of Villa Rufolo (which inspired Wagner to write Parsifal) and Villa Cimbrone with its famous belvedere, and admire the serene 11th-century duomo and its two ancient pulpits: one has a mosaic showing Jonah swallowed by the whale.</p>
