Planning a summer holiday in one of the Amalfi Coast villas? You can experience Amalfi’s best beaches along with breathtaking views and plenty of history.

Spending summer on the Amalfi Coast in Italy is,Guest Posting unsurprisingly, a popular choice with tourists from all over the world. Every year, thousands of people who want to experience a relaxing Mediterranean break book into the best Amalfi Coast villas and hotels to give them access to the best this stunning region has to offer.

Here are some suggestions to add to the itinerary.

Explore Positano on Foot

Positano is one of the most picturesque towns in the region, no question. The colourful Amalfi Coast villas and houses that cascade down the steep steps of the town proper, the quaint shops and restaurants that dot the coastline, and the overall breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea overlooking the cliffs and cafe balconies must be taken in slowly when visiting Positano during the summer. The little town gives off a nostalgic ambience of a classic Italian holiday. One of the top things to do here - and one that will make you feel like a real Italian - is to eat pizza or gelato right on the beach. Regardless of what you do with the rest of the day - or the rest of your stay in Positano - eating an authentic, local pizza should be number one on your list.

Swim in the Fiordo of Furore

Furore is a small fishing village along the coast, and those who visit this delightful little town will have a wonderful chance to really get to know its people and culture. While other bigger towns boast grand Amalfi Coast villas, Furore has a tiny but stunning fjord, with pristine blue-green waters and a relaxing vibe. There is nothing more relaxing than spending a few hours (or the entire afternoon) swimming and sunbathing in the town's fiordo – you may even meet some of the friendly locals. After soaking in the waters, you can also explore the village on foot to see one of its main attractions - the stunning murals. Lining the village walls, this is a true open-air museum.

Visit the Roman Villa in Minori

While there are many modern Amalfi Coast villas you can book in to for a week or two, there is one particular villa in Minori that sets it apart from its modern counterparts. While you can't rent this one, it is a popular tourist destination. The Roman Maritime Archaeological Villa was built in the first century BC and the remarkable ruins still feature its large hall, some of the frescos, and remnants of the stucco. Its well-preserved status after so many centuries makes it a well-known attraction in Minori.
