mcguireinrome's City Tips

  • Beaches on the Amalfi coast are small and rocky; bring thick soled sandals or water shoes.
  • The ferry service between Positano and Salerno runs from April until the end of September.
  • The patron saint of Amalfi, Sant'Andrea, is celebrated on November 30 and June 27.

    Kind of an architectural mishmash, construction on this masterpiece began in the 9th century and was completed in the 19th century, and is dedicated to San’Andrea. The impressive cathedral rises from Amalfi’s main Piazza, with its golden flecked facade and multicolored tiled dome.

    This small museum is housed in what was once one of the towns important paper mills. You can learn about the ancient paper making techniques used in the past, see the machines used to make them, and sometimes even try your own hand at making some paper.

    Villa Rufolo has inspired poets, musicians and artists for centuries. It is easy to see why. The villa is 1,000 years old and houses changing exhibits, while the gardens are lush and colorful. If you visit during the day, wander down and see the incredible stage used for the Ravello festival that seems like it is floating in the sky.

    After a few days of hiking, paper museums, and tours of lemon groves, a day spent at the beach makes for a well deserved relaxing break. This beach club is close to the center of town. Rent some sun loungers and umbrella and book a table for lunch. You can stay here from late morning until sunset!
