Tips for visiting the Amalfi Coast

  1. How to get to Amalfi Coast

The nearest airport to Amalfi Coast is the Naples International Airport, from where it takes about an hour and a half in a cab or bus. You can also visit the coast from the Fiumicino Airport in Rome. If you are travelling from outside Europe, you will want to coordinate the bus schedules or hire a private car, which can set you back around 100-150 euros. Once in Amalfi, you can rent a car or boat to get around the town.

  • Accommodation in Amalfi Coast

Amalfi Coast is a long stretch of land full of accommodation options in each of the popular cities. Therefore, you will need to identify where you want to spend your time and decide the accommodation accordingly. You can easily find exotic villas with swimming pools on the Amalfi Coast, so you can split your stays in a couple of different locations along the coast, i.e., Positano, Praiano, Ravello, Furore, and Maiori and Minori.

  • Where and what to eat and drink

Amalfi is home to diverse culinary traditions and there are exotic dishes that you need to try when on the coast. You will find several restaurants inspired by the cuisine of Naples, and you can discover some new ones on your visit. Some of the must try dishes include Alici di Cetara, Buffalo Mozzarella, Gli Scialatielli All’Amalfitana, Pizza Napolitana, Pasta Al Limone and several other dishes using the local limoncello and lemons.

  • Best time to visit Amalfi Coast

The peak time to visit the coastline is the summers, i.e., from June to August, and autumn (September to mid-October). Although it can get very crowded as Amalfi Coast is a vacation town, it rarely takes away from the beauty of the region. You can try to visit the coast in late May or early September when the waters are colder, but the weather tends to remain warmer for most of the time.

A holiday on the Amalfi Coast is also an excellent opportunity to don amazing summer outfits. However, leave space for souvenirs in your backpack as there are amazing markets in the place and you will be bringing stuff with you. For further enquiries, you can get in touch with a reputed rental agency and book serene villas with a swimming pool on the Amalfi coast at affordable prices.
