6 very amazing Italian Amalfi Coast Towns – The Amalfi Coast is famous worldwide and that’s why we want to know more about the Amalfi Coast Towns that make this coast so special. We want to understand their main characteristics and their main attractions.
Let’s see the main cities of the Amalfi Coast, their characteristics and when you can go.
Italian Amalfi Coast Towns
Sorrento has a big city center with many shops of any kind. It’s more like a city than a town and despite it’s a perfect place for shopping and where to spend the evening, this can make you lose the Amalfi Coast atmosphere.
Anyway, it has a very nice balcony on the sea where you can have your coffee or drink with a beautiful view. Then from Sorrento, you can see something you can’t see from Positano or Amalfi: the volcano Vesuvius.
In the following video, you can see this beautiful view from this balcony at sunset time. Watch the video and subscribe to our YouTube Channel if you aren’t already subscribed! Subscribe here!
In the summertime, I would prefer to stay in a more Amalfitan style town than in Sorrento. In low season, however, it’s the best place to be in.
If you are In Sorrento in summer for many reasons you can go to Marina Grande for a day on the beach. As I’ve already said it’s not the best beach on the Amalfi Coast but it’s cute.
In Marina Grande, there are many restaurants. Dinner in one of those restaurants, especially those in the see it’s a beautiful experience. You can enjoy the sunset on the sea.
We can now move to the next Amalfi Coast Town: Positano. So let’s take the boat for Positano.
We’re now arriving one of the best village town in Amalfi Coast: Positano.
Many people are enchanted by its beauty.
As you can see below, Positano is developed on different levels and starting from the top going down to the pedestrian center you have to follow a road on the coast. On this road, you can find many restaurants with a wide view of the coast and the sea. It’s unique!
Read the following post: restaurants in Positano Italy with a view.
You’ll see many shops in the pedestrian area where you can find many clothes in a perfect Positano’s style.
At the end of everything you find something very precious in this area: the beach! This makes Positano the town to choose for those that love beaches.
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 touristic seasons!

Vettica Maggiore and Praiano Amalfi Coast
Amalfi Italy is a very characteristic Italian Amalfi Coast Town. Like Positano, Amalfi is very recognizable while you’re arriving by boat thanks to its buildings among the rocks and its unique cathedral.

Amalfi has a nice city center and it’s quite busy every month of the year. The 6 best things you can do are:
- to visit the square where there is a beautiful church with a long stairway
- relax on the beach
- to visit the Emerald Grotto by boat
- visit the other beaches in the area (for example the beach il Duoglio)
- visit the Amalfi Villas in Ravello. You can go to Ravello by bus.
- you can taste your delicious icecream or much better a lemon granita
The Amalfi Cathedral is the symbol of the city. It’s in Piazza del Duomo and it’s built with medieval Roman Catholic style.
Amalfi has a nice beach but it isn’t the only beach in the Amalfi area. There are also other beautiful hidden beaches you can easily get to by boat from Amalfi. Il Duoglio is one of these beaches. Watch the following so you can see the coast in the Amalfi area.
In Amalfi you can take the boat and visit the Emerald Grotto. You can arrive at the Emerald Grotto also without the boat tour, anyway it’s a good way to admire the beautiful Amalfi Coast from the sea.
The Emerald Grotto is not very big in size but the spectacle you’ll see it’s marvelous. The water into the grotto takes an intense green hue.
It’s a good choice to stay in Amalfi in the tourist season although it’s quite good also in the low season.
Ravello Italy is a town built on the side of a mountain. Consequently, you don’t have the beach in Ravello Italy, but you have a beautiful view of the Amalfi Coast.
In Ravello there are the 2 famous villas:
- Villa Rufolo
- Villa Cimbrione
In Villa Cimbrone there is the amazing terrace of infinity.

When you think about Vietri you think to its colorful potteries. You can’t go home without something. Here you can buy very nice gifts for your family and friends.
I prefer to visit Vietri rather than to stay there. Anyway, Vietri like Amalfi isn’t strongly affected by seasonability.
