Curator’s statement

As you wind along the serpentine roads that cling to the cliffs, the Amalfi Coast reveals itself in all its glory. Set your sights on towns that seem to tumble towards the sea, each one a work of art. Pastel-hued houses scale the cliffs, their terraces adorned with cascading blooms of flowers, while lemon groves perfume the air with their citrusy aroma. This is the Amalfi Coast.

Things to do in Amalfi Coast

A day in Positano

Grab your walking shoes and begin your journey through Positano. Walk through the charming, bustling, shop-lined streets. This is the perfect opportunity to grab some fresh pressed juice or gelato from a street vendor and shop around. Next, you’ll want to visit the stunning Church of Santa Maria Assunta. This iconic Byzantine style church will be sure to catch your eye while walking through the square. Take the journey to the Spiaggia Grande and enjoy the makeshift markets along the way. By the seaside, you can shop, lounge on the beach and indulge in some truly fresh seafood. A great way to end the evening is at Music on the Rocks to dance the night away by the seaside.

A day in Amalfi

In the morning, hop on the ferry and enjoy the sights as you make your way to Amalfi. Amalfi is famous for its lemons and limoncello liqueurs. Peruse the shops & people watch while sipping on a limoncello spritz. Take the opportunity to lounge on the beach and really soak in the magic of the Amalfi coastline. In the evening, grab a seat on a patio shaded by the lemon trees and even try the lemon pasta!

A day in Ravello

Grab a taxi to Ravello and stroll through Piazza Centrale to visit the Duomo Di Ravello. While in Ravello you must take the hike up to Villa Rufolo. It is one of the largest and most luxurious villas on the Amalfi Coast. The best view of the Amalfi coast is from the botanical gardens, the true beauty of this Villa.

Agricola Fore Porta (Amalfi) is a farm-to-table restaurant with local eats and a stunning view overlooking the coastline.

La Tagliata (Positano) is family-owned with a pre-fixed, multi-course menu. They also offer fantastic cooking classes!

C’era una Volta (Positano) for great food and an even better view.

Need to Know

It's so crucial to bring comfortable shoes on your trip to the Amalfi Coast. There's a surprising amount of stairs, cobblestone streets and rocky coastlines. Be prepared to walk a lot and leave your heels at home. Some popular restaurants do require reservations far in advance during the peak seasons. I would always recommend bringing luggage you can easily carry because the stairs and cobblestone make it difficult for luggage with wheels.
