5 Reasons Why We Love the Amalfi Coast (in Pictures)

We didn’t believe we had only five reasons to love Amalfi Coast. These are just five more reasons to love the Amalfi coast.

The Duomo at Amalfi Town

The Duomo of Amalfi was built in the 13th Century. It incorporated the earlier structure of the 9th century. This cathedral is one of the oldest in Campania. St. Andrew, apostle and fisherman is Amalfiā€™s patron saint. In the 13th century his remains were taken from Constantinople and brought to this duomo’s crypt, where they still remain today. The cathedral, which is both historic and holy, has a beautiful, Moorish-style medieval Cloister.

The Amalfi coast is also known for its seafood, Limoncello. It’s hard to beat fresh fish, especially when you can look at the source of the fish. Not all fish served in Amalfi Coast restaurants should be eaten. So choose your seafood carefully.

Amazing views from the towns…

It is well-known for its breathtaking views, and that’s not surprising. Imagine waking up to this view from Ravello.

…and stunning views from the ferry

The Amalfi Coast SITA bus offers breathtaking views of the coast’s sheer drops towards the sea. But it’s only from the ferry that you can really appreciate the beauty of these towns, even on cloudy days. The trip to Capri is another great ferry ride. It is one of the most popular day trips along the Amalfi Coast.
