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

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.

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.

Italian Amalfi Coast Towns

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!

What can you do in Positano? Read the following post: Positano Italy: unforgettable Things to do in Positano.

Amalfi Italy

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:

  1. to visit the square where there is a beautiful church with a long stairway
  2. relax on the beach
  3. to visit the Emerald Grotto by boat
  4. visit the other beaches in the area (for example the beach il Duoglio)
  5. visit the Amalfi Villas in Ravello. You can go to Ravello by bus.
  6. 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

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.

If you want to know more about this Italian Amalfi Coast read the following post: Ravello Italy things to do.

Vietri

Amalfi Coast Towns: vietri

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.

It is an elegant restaurant with a nice view, good food and it is not too expensive. The staff is very friendly but at the same time professional.

For the food we all appreciated the appetizer offert by the restaurant: fiori di zucca in pastella. It was very delicious. We also appreciated the ravioli because they had a very good combinations of ingredients: pesto, tomato and mozzarella di bufala was a great combination.

The pasta linguine with the lobster was very good. The linguine were amazing because the taste was excellent and also the portion was big. Also the lobster had a good size in the pasta for the price.

Everybody of us also appreciated the dessert delizia al limone because it was super creamy, sweet and just the right amount of lemon.

The atmosphere is perfect because you have an elegant restaurant, with a special view on Positano, a good service, the people in the restaurant are friendly and furthermore there is also the music that makes your experience to the Tridente restaurant more special.

La Sponda

Eating in this restaurant is a really nice experince especially if you’re not on a budget because this restaurant is very expensive. La Sponda is very elegant and the menus offers a different taste and not simple dishes.

The atmosphere is the best among all the restaurants in Positano. There were the mandolins and 2 mans normally play and sing tipical italian songs and other famous song such like the Godfather. They also come next to your table and they make you feel very special. Furthermore the view is amazing.

It is not a good place for kids because the menu doesn’t contain tipical food and the taste of this dishes maybe results a little strange if you’re not used to eat it and you are used to eat simple food.

We could insert the Sponda to the very top of our list but it is very expensive and it not for everybody.

La Tagliata

The Tagliata is very good, they give you huge portions and so you get a good value for your money. The quality of the food is good, they don’t give you fancy food but it’s homemade food, rustic.

The view of the Tagliata is excellent. If you go for the sunset you have an amazing view especially if you ask for a table close to the window in order to sit near the balcony because the view in the inside isn’t as good.

It’s a good place especially for families becaouse it isn’t super fancy. You don’t need to dress up and it also convinient because they bring you up with the shuttle and they bring you to the restaurant. In this way you don’t need to warry about the drive because it’s not so easy to get here by car because in this area they are quite crazy drivers. ;).

The following video shows you the amazing view from this restaurant terrace at sunset time.

Best restaurants in Positano Italy without a view

There are other very good restaurants in Positano but that they don’t have a view. Here you can find the list of the restaurants in Positano we have selected for you.

  • La Taverna del Leone
  • Il Saraceno
  • Da Vincenzo

Da Vincenzo

It’s a very good restaurant. The panzerotti they have are very good because they are cruncy. The ravioli with scamorza, pomodori and melanzane were very appraciated in our table. Shrimp tempura was very good. The tempura was light but crunchy and they give you big shrimps.

The best dessert in this restaurnat we have tasted is the cheesecake with berries.

This restaurnat offers a very good value for the price. They have very good food, the restaurant is nice and is located in Positano. You don’t need any transportation to get here if you stay in Positano.

Da Vincenzo you don’t have the view but you can see amazing view soon after you are out odf the restaurant.

Il Saraceno

It’s a good restaurant especially for the pizza. The pizza is very good for good price in Positano. It’s a place where you can go with your family and a place where you can eat good italian pizza.

The pizza is excellent and it has the good quantity of toppings in the middle and the crost wasn’t too big. For example one of our pizzas had good tomatos, bufala and mozzarella. The crost was also cooked perfectly.

The location isn’t special because there is no view it is a easy place for a pizza. It’s a place where you can go with your children. About the service the waiters are sometimes pushy but also friendly.

La Taverna del Leone

It’s not in the center of Positano but you don’t have problem to get to the restaurant because they have a shuttle service. The restaurant is along the main road and you dont have any view.

For the amount of food and the quality the price is reasonable. They have scallops with the bacon that are very good. We also liked the cheesecake but what the best dessert was the croccante con torroncino: very delicious!

We appreciate the service because it wasn’t super professional but they were very reasonable to adapt the tasting menu to our needs. Infact in this restaurant you can choose a tasting menu of 5 dishes.

What is the best time to visit Amalfi Coast?

best time to visit amalfi coast

What is the best time to visit Amalfi Coast? – The Amalfi Coast is beautiful and I’m sure you want that your trip to Amalfi Coast is very special. That maybe the reason yhy you’re asking the following question: What is the best time to visit Amalfi Coast? In this post we’ll give you the answer.

What is the best time to visit Amalfi Coast?

What is the best time to visit Amalfi Coast? If you can choose when to visit the Amalfi Coast you should go from May to June. This is the time when spring explodes in a profusion of smells and colors and in especially in June the sun is warm enough to enjoy the sea.

What is the best month to visit the Amalfi Coast?

May is the best month for a trip to the Amalfi Coast: perfect temperatures, bright colors and it isn’t too crowded.

Sorrento is very closed to Pompeii. You can arrive in Pompeii in only half an hour by train. Spring is a very good time also to visit Pompeii. In Spring it’s warm but not too hot and you can spend all the day in the ruins without particular problems.

Is August a good time to visit the Amalfi Coast?

It can be but before deciding you should understand how is the Amalfi Coast in Summer. In July and August in fact the Amalfi Coast is very crowded and the weather is very hot. These aren’t the best month for the Amalfi Coast especially if you want to include places such as Herculaneum or Pompeii to your trip. Pompeii needs a full day and it’s very exhausting when it’s too hot.

Anyway there are also good advantages. It’s a very good time to swim. Than public transportation times are extended. In this way you have more time to visit places.

You can see the following example. If you go by boat to Amalfi for a day trip from Positano you have to come back at 6 pm in June but after July you can come back later at 9:30 pm. In fact in the website that ride will be available in summer.

What is the best time to visit Amalfi Coast? 21
What is the best time to visit Amalfi Coast? Summer Advantages

Also for Capri there are more ferry boat times available. You can arrive to Capri early and take the best advantage of the full day.

Is October a good time to visit the Amalfi Coast?

Yes it is! The weather is warm and it isn’t too crowded. In October there are still sunny days. There are still boat services available such as the one from Amalfi to the Emerald Grotto or Grotta dello Smeraldo.

You can see a few pictures I took at the end of October.

In october you can dress with only a light jacket and sometime is warm and a T-shirt is enough.

October is also a good month to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Can you swim in Amalfi in October?

You normally can’t swim … but the last few years October was warmer than normal…

The Amalfi Coast in winter

The winter isn’t the best time to visit Amalfi Coast. As we’ve already explained in the post “Amalfi Coast Towns” the touristic season finishes at the first weekend of November. The result is that after this weekend many hotels and restaurants are closed.

If you visit the Amalfi Coast in winter it’s better you stay in Sorrento. It’s one of the biggest Amalfi Coast towns and it’s the town less affected by the touristic seasons. In this way you can have all the services you need and If you want visit the other town during the day.
