Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi
Services we offer
It is almost impossible to describe in detail the endless experiences one can immerse into while in this ancient magical coastline. The intoxicating combination of elegance in design, majestic food and the violent history of exploding volcanos and ancient wars converge into a history of excess and privilege that make this spot one of the most dramatic places on earth. The Amalfi Coast lies on the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula. It is one of the most popular seaside destinations in Italy’s Campania region and, with its breathtakingly panoramic Amalfi Drive is considered one of the most beautiful stretches of coast in the whole of Europe.
Amalfi became in 839 AD the first Italian maritime republic and it is now the largest town in the region.
Named after a beautiful nymph, loved by Hercules, Amalfi is the principal town on the spectacular 'Amalfi Coast', situated on the south side of the Sorrento peninsular which forms the southern end of the Bay of Naples. The area has long been a favourite destination for tourists who come for the spectacular scenery, the dramatic views, the attractive seascape and the pretty seaside towns of Vietri sul mare, Maiori, Minori, Amalfi, Ravello and Positano. There are ferry trips that leave Salerno and call in at several of these towns, before going on to Sorrento and Capri.
