Visit Amalfi: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Amalfi
Amalfi Cathedral
Dedicated to Saint Andrew, this stunning ninth-century cathedral dominates the Amalfi skyline and is the centrepiece of the town’s religious and cultural heritage. The remains of Saint Andrew were reportedly brought to the town in 1206, and to this day the cathedral houses many of his relics. Climb the grand staircase from Amalfi’s main square and enter a world of Romanesque beauty.
Path of the Gods
Lace up your walking boots and get ready to enjoy the Amalfi coast’s most famous walk. This 11-kilometre hike between the hillside villages of Bomerano and Nocelle offers plunging Mediterranean views and a taste of the Italian wilderness. Although the trail is well-maintained, a head for heights is required for this high-altitude excursion. Pack plenty of water, and set off early to avoid the midday sun.
Emerald Grotto
Discovered by a local fisherman in 1932, the Emerald Grotto presents a light show like no other. Located in the bay of Conca dei Marini, refracted sunlight gives the water in this ancient cavern its characteristic emerald glow. The grotto can be reached via one of the many small boat tour operators along the coast. Visit in the early afternoon to enjoy the best light.

We went to Amalfi in February. This was a great time to go there. All though a lot of restaurants were closed we had a great dinner. I can image that during the summer this place is crowded with tourists, when we were there the streets were empty and everything was so beautiful. Amazing!

Nice views and scenery from everywhere but very narrow roads which is very hard to drive. We went there in winter so no traffic but in summer season it could be terrible. Many steps everywhere so with small children it would't be comfortable.

Good location for transport to and from Salerno and Sorrento, also to local villages around. Perfect base for walking holiday in winter. Shops and restaurants open in January. Perfect out of season location.

Amalfi is gorgeous! Not the village; that's cute. The hills, the sea, the nature. That's truly amazing!

Nice town to visit. I would not stay there for the night as there is no parking and all restaurants are very expensive... I would highly recommend to visit and drive long the Amalfi Coast,

The beach was very nice place to hang out for the day. We rented beach chairs for 10 euro/each and those were nice. Water is warm and excellent for swimming and playing. The beach is pebbly so bring some sort of water shoes. Beautiful views. Many choices for lunch at the beach.

The whole time we were there was VERY relaxing. Assisted by the fact that we stayed in a family run B&B. The walks (hair-raising but wonderful), the dawn/dusk, the trips to adjacent towns - Positano, Ravello, Vietri sul Mare, Minori, etc. etc. A lovely place to be....

There's a great little lunch bar heading up the hill of the Main Street (the last on the right) run by a young couple. They serve freshly made Italian pita/sandwiches. Very reasonably priced and very delicious.

The Italian seaside of the movies, mountain sides littered with homes, reminds the traveler of a simpler less hectic time

The Cathedral is surprisingly large for the size of Amalfi, and quite beautiful, both its architecture and art.

Not a seafood lover but fresh fish and seafood is on every menu. Great stuff!

Peaceful for a couple
