Positano Italy in winter
Positano is a magnificent location both in summer and winter. To get to Positano from Sorrento you can take the bus. In the summertime, you can get here also by boat but in winter the service is discontinued.

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 2 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.
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.
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 to get 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

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!
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.
