The Amalfi Coast (Italian: Costiera Amalfitana) is a stretch of coastline on the northern shore of the Salerno Gulf on the Tyrrhenian Sea, situated in the Province of Salerno of southern Italy.
The Amalfi Coast is a well known traveler goal for the area and Italy in general, pulling in a large number of vacationers yearly. In 1997, the Amalfi Coast was recorded as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Like whatever is left of the district, the Amalfi Coast lies in a Mediterranean atmosphere, including warm summers and mellow winters. It is situated on the moderately steep southern shore of the Sorrentine Peninsula, pretty much ruling out rustic and farming regions. The coast contains 11,231 hectares between the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno. The main land course to the Amalfi Coast is the 40 kilometers (25 mi) long Strada Statale 163 which keeps running along the coastline from the town of Vietri sul Mare in the east to Positano in the west. Thirteen districts are situated on the Amalfi Coast, huge numbers of them focused on the travel industry.
