Romantic home of an ancient maritime republic.
You wouldn't quite think so by looking at it, but a thousand years ago, Amalfi was the capital of a powerful maritime republic, and rival to Pisa and Genoa. Sackings and a tsunami destroyed most of the oldest buildings, though the medieval cathedral survived. Constructed by the Normans, it blends Byzantine and Northern architectural and decorative styles. Nowadays, along with Positano, Amalfi is one of the busiest towns on the Amalfi Coast, and a good jumping off point for trips to the other towns by road or boat.
Route for Amalfi tour
Amalfi's signature lemons, longer and larger than regular lemons, are a key ingredient in the locally produced limoncello and a digestif shot is almost compulsory after any meal. A little way from the center of town you can learn about another famous Amalfi product in the paper mill museum. Known worldwide for its quality, Amalfi's thick handmade paper was one of the first produced in Europe, the Amalfitani having learned the techniques from the Arabs they traded with.

What I love about Amalfi


Senior Team Leader for Italy

I would summarize the Amalfi Coast with just one word: postcard. Wherever you stay, wherever you visit, wherever you stop, you will feel the urge to take a picture of the beautiful and stunning panorama view you will have in front of you and print a thousand postcards to ship home.

Where to stay in Amalfi

Our accommodations on the Amalfi Coast are divided between Positano, the largest of the small towns in the area, and Amalfi itself. It's worth bearing in mind that hotels are booked out many months in advance here, so some flexibility may be needed. We've inspected and selected the very best options from small family run B&Bs to palatial cliffside grand hotels to converted monasteries and convents. You'll have the choice of being in the thick of the action or in relative seclusion, just let us know your preferences. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.
