The Amalfi Coast is a very popular holiday destination, part of the World Heritage Site, and located in the province of Salerno, in Campania.

What towns are included in the Amalfi Coast?

There are 13 towns and villages on the Amalfi Coast: Amalfi, Atrani, Cetara, Conca dei Marini, Furore, Maiori, Minori, Positano, Praiano, Ravello, Scala, Tramonti and Vietri sul Mare. All these villages are well connected to each other by the highway 163, also nicknamed "La Amalfitana", which starts from Piano di Sorrento and reaches Vietri sul Mare.

What should you not miss in the Amalfi Coast?

  • Positano and the Path of the Gods: Positano is an ancient fishing town which is characterized by a large number of boutiques, mainly belonging to local artisans, who are specialized in the production of beachwear and accessories. Walking along the Path of the Gods, it is also possible to admire a wonderful panorama from the top.

  • Amalfi: Amalfi lends its name to the entire coast. If you are in Amalfi it is impossible not to notice its wonderful Arabic-Sicilian cathedral.

  • Furore: the village of Furore is characterized by its famous fjord on the sea, between Positano and Amalfi. It is a real corner of paradise, also nicknamed "the town that doesn't exist", due to its geological conformation.

  • Minori and Maiori: they are smaller than Positano and Amalfi. They represent the ideal destinations for families with children, thanks to their wide sandy beaches and few stairs.

  • Vietri sul Mare: Vietri is a real pearl of the Coast. A wonderful destination, particularly famous for the production of ceramics.

When to visit the Amalfi Coast?

The best time to visit the Amalfi Coast is certainly during spring, from April to June, when the area is less crowded.

The climate remains nice all year, except for the period November-March, which is particularly rainy. 

The Amalfi Coast is one of the main Italian and world tourist destinations. It is impossible not to be impressed by its history, culture and its wonderful breathtaking landscapes.
