Winding coastal roads, spectacular ocean views and fabulous places to stay Follow the often-vertiginous curving coastal road along the Amalfi Coast and you will glimpse everything that makes it such a spectacular place: mountains and forests, the azure, sometimes emerald green sea, dotted with fishing boats and yachts, and gorgeous sun-splashed villages perched on the hillsides. This is a playground for the rich and famous, with suitably luxurious hotels and villas to accommodate them, but choose carefully and you can find less extravagant but no less wonderful gems, either in the centre of the action or tucked away in smaller towns. Here is our selection of the best.
