Description

Coordinates: 40° 38′ 4″ N, 14° 36′ 11″ E

The Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana), on the south of Naples, extends from Positano in the west to Vietri sul Mare in the east.

[See more]

The towns lying on the Amalfi Coast are:

  • Positano: The small fishing village (Population 3,900) lies in an enclave with vertiginous slopes to the sea.
  • Praiano: During the 10th - 11th centuries, Praiano was once the summer residence of the doges of the Duchy of Amalfi.
  • Furore: Furore expands from sea level, where there is the hamlet of Fiordo di Furore up to Agerola (550 m above sea level)
  • Conca dei Marini: In the early Middle Ages, it was a trading base of the Republic of Amalfi. In 1543 it was sacked by Turkish pirates.
  • Amalfi: The town is the largest on the coast (Population 5,500). The Duomo still houses some relics of the apostle Saint Andrew’s brought from Constantinople in 1210.
  • Scala: In the Middle Ages Scala was, together with Ravello, the most important fortification of the Duchy of Amalfi.
  • Ravello: The Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo provide the best views on this coast. In the latter Richard Wagner was inspired in 1880 for his opera Parsifal.
  • Minori: An ancient holiday resort of the Roman aristocracy, as evidenced by the discovery of a patrician villa dating back to the 1st century.
  • Maiori: Likely founded by the Etruscans, it was conquered by the Romans in the 3rd century BC.
  • Cetara: The village was originally a settlement for a group of armed Muslims in 880.
  • Vietri sul Mare: The town is known for its polychrome ceramics, a tradition since at least the 15th century, and is considered to be the gateway to the Amalfi Coast.
