A lot of people don’t realize that there even is a town of Amalfi, maybe because the coast bearing the same name has hogged all the glory, or maybe because places like Positano have gotten all the attention.
The fact is that Amalfi has an incredible history! This speck of a place rose from being a fishing village to one of the fiercest naval republics in the Mediterranean during Medieval times.
An important part of Amalfi’s past is the production of paper, which goes back to the 13th Century. Amalfi paper was famous all over the Mediterranean through the Middle Ages until Renaissance times. The Museo della Carta (Paper Museum) brings to light this element of the town’s past, and the ruins of the original mills can be visited as well.
The most impressive thing in Amalfi today the Duomo. The cathedral, dedicated to Saint Andrew, dates back to the 9th Century. It has been expanded and restyled many times over the centuries, incorporating Arab-Norman, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque elements topped off with a 19th-century Norman-Arab-Byzantine facade (whew!).
One of the ancient world's worst disasters stopped time in Pompeii, where you will see life as it was almost 2000 years ago. The cataclysmic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD buried the city under ash and lava, where it remained brilliantly preserved until excavations began in the 18th century.
You will have 2 hours to tour on foot (or better yet, with a private guide), gaining an insight into the lives of ancient Romans as you walk amongst bathhouses, temples, markets and forums.
In Positano, pastel houses are set against the stark cliffside that gives way to the brilliant blue sea. As you descend the many stairs to the seaside promenade and the beach, you will find everything from art galleries to clothing to handicrafts and local products.
Lemons are renowned in these parts, perhaps at their most famous when turned into limoncello, a scrumptious lemon liqueur that you will definitely want to try. Enjoy free time to explore this elegant spot with its many boutiques, open-air markets and seaside cafes.
Perched on a cliff overlooking the sea, Ravello is a place of unparalleled natural beauty and breathtaking views. To get there you will take a slow uphill drive from Amalfi, passing vineyards and groves of olive trees.
One of the nicest things about Ravello is that it is still has a village feel, and it’s not overrun by tourism. And then there are the architectural and historical points of interest, particularly Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. These unbelievable gardens inebriate visitors with the sweet scents of blooming flowers and lemon trees, and captivate the eye with their bright colors. The views are jaw-dropping.
Along Via Roma you will find upscale boutiques and traditional restaurants featuring exceptional local cuisine.
A summer resort that attracts visitors from all over the world, Sorrento is an enchanting village brimming with character. In ancient times the Greeks and Romans found inspiration here for their art and industry, and it is here that you will find an extraordinary array of woodworks, mosaics, furniture and porcelain in a setting of handsome streets, scenery and people.
If you have a sweet tooth (well, even if you don’t) you should taste some sfogliatelle, a delectable Neapolitan pastry filled with ricotta cheese and candied fruit.
