The Amalfi Coast stretches along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula. The coastal area is a popular tourist destination. This area is marked with steep cliffs, rugged shorelines and colorful fishing villages. The town of Amalfi is a great base for exploring the surrounding area. Built on the side of a cliff, the squares and attractions are either up or down numerous flights of stairs. While visiting Amalfi be sure to stop by the beautiful old Cathedral. Right in front of this attraction is the main square where the tourists and locals like to hang out. You will find some interesting shops, with some selling pastries or the Italian gelato and restaurants to try. Many of the restaurants provide outdoor seating so you can enjoy the sea views and the sun while dining on “delizia al limone”, a delicious lemon cake made from the lemons grown locally. From Amalfi, you can catch a bus or ferry that will take you to the other coastal town like Naples, Salerno or Sorrento. When planning your Amalfi vacation be sure you stay at one of these top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals.

casa vacanza cuore di AmalfiAmalfi, Campania, Italy
The city of stairs
The charming city of Amalfi is a lovely town to visit, if you don’t mind all of the stairs. Like a lot of the towns and villages in the south of Italy, Amalfi is built on the side of a hill and everything you need is accessible with a bit of a climb. But once you see the city with its bell tower, beautiful old cathedral and crystal bay, you won’t mind the climb at all.
