Costiera Amalfitana or the Amalfi Coast, is the southern coastline of Italy's Sorrentine Peninsula from Positano to Vietri sul Mare. This stretch of coast is recognised as a World Heritage Site for its rugged beauty and picturesque towns.

The rural areas on the Costiera Amalfitana is an example of how the people have adapted the land to the diverse nature of the terrain, growing vineyards and orchards on the lower slopes and using the wider uplands as pastures.
