Like the rest of the region, the Amalfi Coast lies in a Mediterranean climate, featuring warm summers and mild winters. It is located on the relatively steep southern shore of the Sorrentine Peninsula. The Amalfi Coast was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a cultural landscape. I recommend a boat ride if you are there, then you can see the beautiful colorful cost. It is fantastic how the colorful houses are built in levels which gives the coast an impressive view.
