Amalfi Coast in winter: Positano Italy

Text of the video:

Hi everybody, we are in Positano in winter. Positano is a magnificent location both in summer and in winter.

Clearly in winter, it presents itself in a completely different way than in summer.

For example, we remember well what the beach of Positano is like in summer.

In the summer we were worried if we would find a place on the beach and if there were umbrellas still available. Surely this problem does not exist now!

Our umbrella was right over there!

In Positano, many restaurants are closed in winter, but you have no problem finding the place you like best for lunch. Both for a lunch at the restaurant and for a quick lunch and why not even with a sea view.

Wow, what waves! Right there where in summer we wait for boats to Amalfi, Sorrento or Capri. Clearly, boats do not leave here in winter.

What to visit in Positano in winter? An excellent idea is to visit the very interesting MAR Roman Archaeological Museum, where you can also see part of the remains of an extraordinary Roman Villa. The museum ticket office is located near the church near the beach.

Walking on the beach is also very enjoyable, especially when there is a beautiful sunset.

Let’s now move to via Cristoforo Colombo to admire the beach of Positano and the view from above.

We wait for it to get darker and the lights of the houses to be turned on. I like admiring Positano in the evening.

Amalfi in winter

Amalfi is known all over the world for its beauty and particularity. What are the most characteristic areas of Amalfi? We certainly have the main square where we see the Cathedral of Amalfi and the port among the many. These two places have also been the set of numerous international films.

Amalfi is an excellent destination for spring-summer when we can enjoy the beaches of Amalfi, the beautiful sea and when we can go shopping as all the shops are open. But what about Amalfi in winter?

Amalfi is an excellent destination to go to even in winter: a walk through the streets of the center, a lunch in one of the excellent restaurants, a stop in the square to admire the Cathedral of Amalfi, and for super delicious ice cream even in winter thanks at the mild temperature of Amalfi.

One thing not to be missed on the Amalfi Coast in winter is the sunset. In fact, both in winter and in summer we have more opportunities to admire magnificent sunsets. In this video, we are mainly located near the tourist port of Amalfi. On one side is the illuminated Amalfi seafront and on the other a magnificent sunset.

Emerald Grotto

Amalfi is one of the symbols of all the Amalfi Coast. In Amalfi, you can visit the city center the unique church, and the Emerald Grotto that is not far from Amalfi. You can get to the Emerald Grotto by boat from the Amalfi port, by bus, or by car.

The best part of the day to visit the Emerald Grotto is the early afternoon.

The Emerald Grotto can be closed due to the sea condition when it’s too agitated to visit the grotto. You may arrive at the grotto and you find it closed.

Anyway, no problem because there is a lot to see here on the Amalfi Coast, so you can choose another beautiful destination to spend an amazing day on Amalfi Coast.

Things to do in Capri in winter

Capri is a very famous island for more than a reason: for its sea, for the Faraglioni that are amazing Rocks in Water, for the Blue Grotto o the fancy shops and much more. What are the things to do in Capri in winter?

In Summertime, I like to do the boat tour around the Island, snorkel, and also relax on the Marina Grande beach before exploring the island, but winter is the perfect occasion to do those things I don’t have time to include in my Capri program for a day trip in the hot season.

For example, we can spend more time in Anacapri. You can include the beautiful Villa San Michele, walk in the Anacapri streets and go up the Monte Solaro with the chair lift.

Because the heat is not strong, we can also think of getting to Anacapri by climbing the Phoenician staircase if it is accessible.

When you arrive at Capri by boat is better to go first to Anacapri because all of these attractions close in the early afternoon. When we have finished, we can go to Capri to walk from the Piazzetta to the Augustus gardens to see the Faraglioni and Via Krupp.

Then from the Augustus Gardens to the Tragara viewpoint.

If you arrive in the early morning and the sea is calm, you can also dedicate a couple of hours to the island boat tour. In this way, you can pass through the amazing Faraglioni.

If you do this option probably you’ll have less time for the Capri center, but seeing the Faraglioni or Rocks in water from the sea you can cancel the Tragara Viewpoint.

Summarizing the following are the 2 options for Capri in winter

Capri in winter Option1

  • Anacapri climbing the Phoenician staircase if it is accessible. Walking tour.
  • Villa San Michele
  • Chairlift to Mount Solaro
  • Piazzetta Capri
  • Walking tour to Augustus Gardens to see the Faraglioni and The Krupp Street
  • Walking tour to Tragara View Point to see the Faraglioni.

Capri in winter Option 2

  • Anacapri by bus
  • Villa San Michele
  • Chairlift to Mount Solaro
  • Boat tour around the Capri island
  • Piazzetta Capri
  • Walking tour to Augustus Gardens to see the Faraglioni and The Krupp Street if you have enough time

Ravello & the Infinity Terrace

It’s the beginning of January and we are in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast to see the Infinity Terrace at Villa Cimbrone. Watch the following video!

Amalfi Coast in winter: Ravello & the Infinity Terrace

How can you reach Ravello? For example, you can come to Ravello by car and park at the Piazza Duomo car park. Beware that the road to travel by car is quite narrow and you may struggle to find a parking space in periods of particular crowding.

You can also come to Ravello by bus from Amalfi, thanks to the Amalfi – Ravello – Scala line.

In Amalfi, as you can see, the bus stop is near the beach. The bus takes you to Ravello, and the bus stop where you can get off is very close to Piazza Duomo.

From Piazza Duomo, you can reach Villa Cimbrone on foot. Keep in mind that the road to the villa is uphill and has several steps.

Maiori Amalfi Cost in winter

Here we are in Maiori and it’s a splendid winter day. In Maiori, the winter temperature is mild and in this period, it is a fairly quiet location even though there are always people who love to walk along the beautiful promenade that runs along the beach.

In fact, here in Maiori, we have a beautiful wide and long beach with an equally long promenade that runs along the beach. This is an almost unique scenario here on the Amalfi Coast, where the beaches are usually smaller than this one.

What amazes, fascinates and I like about the Amalfi Coast is this variety. Each location has its beauty and particularity. You can choose your favorite location on the Amalfi Coast or simply choose the town of your destination daily considering what you would like to do that day. Enjoy the video!

Amalfi Cost in winter: Maiori

Text of the video

Look at the sea.

Hi! Where are we? We are in Maiori on the Amalfi Coast!

What I like about Maiori is this long walk along this large beach. We don’t have many long and wide beaches here on the Amalfi Coast.

It is a winter day, the climate is mild, and the sun shines. Let’s enjoy this beautiful walk together.

Leaving from Positano, Maiori is located after Amalfi. We have in fact Amalfi, Atrani, Minori and then Maiori.

What are other interesting things here in Maiori?

Here in Maiori, you can also hike doing the Path of the Lemons, which connects Maiori to Minori.

Just in Minori, we have, for those who love history and archeology, the remains of a Roman villa to visit, and for those who love the food, there is the famous pastry shop Pasticceria Sal De Riso.

Walking here in Maiori, it suddenly becomes evening, or at least in our video, and we can admire a magnificent sunset.

We’re at the end of this video, so I greet you. Bye and see you in the next video!

Furore Fjord Amalfi Coast in winter

The following video is about a winter day at the Furore Fjord. It was a cloudy day, but we liked this place a lot. One of my friends remembering that day said: “This was a cool little spot … it’s not that big but just amazing in the structure, water, and scenery to soak in”. Enjoy the video!

Amalfi Coast in winter: Fiordo di Furore

Furore Fjord Amalfi Coast Description

The Fiordo di Furore is internationally famous as it is one of the most particular and characteristic realities of the Amalfi Coast.

Regardless of the suggestions aroused by the ancient, tiny building settlement, the valley has one of the most important naturalistic riches of the entire peninsula.

You can get to the Fiordo di Furore from the state road, thanks to the steps that bring you directly to the small beach or from the Punta Tavola: the rocky spur above. The steps to reach the beach are not many and absolutely nothing compared to the steps necessary to reach the Duoglio beach.

However, the staircase has a total of about 700 steps. The environment surrounding the long staircase is characterized by the so-called vegetational inversion for which the valley floor is occupied by essences which, in general, are characteristic of higher altitudes.

Marina di Praia Amalfi Coast in winter

Close to the Fiordo di Furore there is the Marina di Praia Beach. Marina di Praia beach: very characteristic as it is set between 2 fjords. The beach of Marina di Praia is not the best known but it is really very characteristic. The beach of Mariana di Praia also has a great charm in the winter, indeed the natural beauty of this beach stands out even more in the quiet winter.

Napoli in winter

Naples has a lot of history and its archaeological museum is extraordinary (Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli). Winter is a good time to visit the museum where you can see many archeological finds from Pompeii.

The history is very interesting but what attracts many people is the pizza. In Naples there are a lot of good pizzerias and one of the most famous is the Pizzeria Sorbillo.

Positano Italy: 10 unforgettable Things to do in Positano & Positano beach

Positano Italy – Things to do in Positano – Positano beach. As already written in the post “Amalfi Coast Towns” Positano is one of the best towns on the Amalfi Coast. Its beauty enchants many people.

Positano Italy

As a result, maybe Positano is the best town to stay in especially in the summertime but not in the low season. Positano is the town most affected by the tourist seasons!

Precious Advises

For our own experience, we want to give you the following precious advice.

  • In August and the more busy seasons prefer the boat to the bus when you have to move. When there are many people, the bus times aren’t trustworthy and if the bus is full it doesn’t stop and it leaves you at the bus stop :(. The boat times are instead always right.
  • Do not pack too many things because Positano is full of stairs and it isn’t easy to arrive at your hotel with big and heavy bags. If you don’t want to renounce to some of your stuff use the porterage service. The porterage service brings your bags from the tourist port of Positano to your hotel. In this way, you’ll not have a heart attack 😉 if you’re not trained.
  • Avoid the 2 central weeks of August if you can. Too hot and too crowded.

The Path of the Gods Positano

One of the best things to do in Positano is the Path of the Gods Positano. Positano and the Amalfi Coast are in fact also famous for the trails in the mountains just behind the coast. The peculiarity of these trails is that they are extremely scenic.

The Path of the Gods Positano is a very panoramic hiking path. If you start your hiking tour in Nocelle, don’t stop at the beginning of the path because, after 1 hour of walking, you can see Positano, and the view is much better than at the beginning of the path.

A good idea is to go in the morning and then have lunch at the restaurant la Tagliata or have a light lunch at the ” Inverno al Chiosco del Sentiero degli Dei” that is at the beginning of the Path of the Gods. Go to the following page: “Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view“.

How to reach the Path of the Gods?

You have 3 options to reach the Path of the Gods:

  1. By bus from Positano
  2. By car
  3. On foot thanks to the stairs that lead you from Arenzio near the beginning of the Path of the Gods. This option is the most tiring and certainly not for everyone.

Path of the Gods by bus from Positano

To reach the Path of the Gods by bus you can go to the Chiesa Nuova stop in Positano and take the bus to Nocelle. The Nocelle bus stop is very convenient because it is located a few steps from the road that leads you directly to the Path of the Gods.

Path of the Gods by car from Positano

To reach the Path of the Gods by car you have to head towards Nocelle where you will find a small parking lot which, however, fills up quickly at certain times of the year. I, therefore, suggest you arrive early. For convenience, I leave you the Google point that you can set on the navigator to reach the parking: https://goo.gl/maps/YNymZt2aQ5wnzQyR8.

From the parking lot for the Path of the Gods, you have to walk a short paved section between the houses. During this route, you will also see the sign indicating the stairs to Positano. In fact, from here you can also reach Positano on foot, more precisely Arenzio.

Continuing the path shortly after you will see on your right the Kiosk of the Path of the Gods, once you pass it you will begin your adventure on the Path of the Gods!

Path of the Gods on foot from Positano

From Positano, it is possible to reach the Path of the Gods also on foot thanks to the stairs which, however, do not directly connect the center of Positano to the Path but arrive at Arenzio. So in your journey, you have to take into consideration that from Positano you have to go to Arenzio or vice versa.

This option is the most tiring and certainly not for everyone. In order not to go up all the stairs it might be a good idea to go to the Path of the Gods by bus and then walk back.

Why do the Path of the Gods?

The Path of the Gods is an excellent alternative to the beauties of the coast of the sea. In fact, you can admire these beautiful landscapes from a different point of view.

Positano Italy in winter

Positano is a magnificent location both in summer and in winter. Watch the following video: it shows you Positano in winter!

Text of the video:

Hi everybody, we are in Positano in winter. Positano is a magnificent location both in summer and in winter.

Clearly in winter, it presents itself in a completely different way than in summer.

For example, we remember well what the beach of Positano is like in summer.

In the summer we were worried if we would find a place on the beach and if there were umbrellas still available. Surely this problem does not exist now!

Our umbrella was right over there!

In Positano, many restaurants are closed in winter, but you have no problem finding the place you like best for lunch. Both for a lunch at the restaurant and for a quick lunch and why not even with a sea view.

Wow, what waves! Right there where in summer we wait for boats to Amalfi, Sorrento or Capri. Clearly, boats do not leave here in winter.

What to visit in Positano in winter? An excellent idea is to visit the very interesting MAR Roman Archaeological Museum, where you can also see part of the remains of an extraordinary Roman Villa. The museum ticket office is located near the church near the beach.

Walking on the beach is also very enjoyable, especially when there is a beautiful sunset.

Let’s now move to via Cristoforo Colombo to admire the beach of Positano and the view from above.

We wait for it to get darker and the lights of the houses to be turned on. I like admiring Positano in the evening.
