Its a mediterranean coast lying in the south-west of Italy has been a mystical holiday destination for beach lovers and people on romantic getaways. This coast is majorly consisted of Positano, Ravello and Amalfi with Amalfi being the largest city on this coast line. As Amalfi is not very big of a place in itself...the way to reach here is by road or by ferries... which are heavily crowded on any given day. The nearest airport is Salerno but foreign tourists arrive by air at Naples and thereafter choose between road or sea route. The steep slopes are covered with lemon tree gardens which is processed to produce limoncello liqueur, which as the name suggest is a lemon based drink. Besides limoncello, amalfi is much known for production of Ceramic tile from Vietri and handmade paper known as bambagina. As tourist desitination, besides the widespread beaches along the coastline, Amalfi offers fair varieties of cafes, boutiques and historical spots as it was a trade center through sea route almost a century back. Since it lies on the Sorentino Peninsula, mediterranean climate is dominant with hot summers and moderate winters. The best time to visit the Amalfi coast should be September- December. During summers, the traffic is heavy on the roads therefore, I personally wouldn't recommend this destination for the months of February-May.
