Holidays in Amalfi

One of the most glamorous spots on the Italian Coast, Amalfi has been a favourite destination for artists and film stars for many years. Perched on a cliff overlooking the azure blue sea, the town is a maze of cobbled streets and sun-drenched piazzas. Venture further out to discover wild lemon trees and olive groves.

Start the day with an espresso and a sfogliatella (sweet Italian pastry) in a café overlooking the main piazza. The Cattedrale di Sant’Andrea is the town’s centrepiece. Sitting at the top of a flight of steps, it’s a grand 12th century cathedral with a unique black and white striped exterior.  Amalfi’s narrow streets are filled with family-run shops selling everything from limoncello to traditional Italian ceramics. One of the most popular places to visit in Amalfi is the Grotta dello Smeraldo (Emerald Grotto). The sunlight reflects against the water, creating vivid hues of green and blue.

Discover Amalfi’s medieval history at the town’s Cattedrale di Sant’Andrea. You’ll see it from the town’s main piazza – its black and white stripes make it one of the most iconic sites in Amalfi. Enter through its bronze doors and you’ll find a lavish Baroque interior with mosaics and 14th-century frescoes. One of the best places to visit in Amalfi is the Torre dello Ziro, a medieval watch tower perched high above the cliffs. Hike up the rocky pathway to the tower and you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the bay.

Spend some time exploring Amalfi’s cobbled lanes and you’ll find family-run bakeries, craft workshops and stylish boutiques. The Amalfi Coast is famous for its ceramics, and you’ll find plenty to choose from here – from traditional Italian tableware to cutting-edge contemporary pieces. A bottle of Amalfi’s famous limoncello makes a great souvenir. Made using the local lemons, it’s a tangy and refreshing liqueur served at the end of meals. For one of the best things to do in Amalfi, visit a traditional limoncello shop. You’ll get to taste a sample and watch the liqueur being bottled.

Breakfast as the locals do, with a strong cup of espresso and a sfogliatella, a sweet pastry oozing with a lemon cream filling. Nearby Naples is the home of the pizza and you ‘ll find plenty of authentic pizzerias in Amalfi. Cooked in a traditional wood oven, they’re made using the sweetest tomatoes, milky mozzarella cheese, and finished with fresh basil and a drizzle of olive oil. You’ll find fresh anchovies on menus across Amalfi. Try them marinated in fiery chilli and basil, and then wash it all down with a glass of the local limoncello.
