Guide to Amalfi

Centuries ago, Amalfi was a maritime republic with a robust trade throughout the Mediterranean. Reminders of the town’s long-ago grandeur can be seen in a number of historic sites that survive to this day, including the Duomo of Amalfi, a splendid cathedral with a thousand-plus-year history. The main beach here is called the Spiaggia Grande, which is easily accessed from the port. In fact, it’s so popular that Amalfitani often seek out other places to swim, such as the Lido delle Sirene and La Marinella. For a memorable excursion, head to the nearby Emerald Grotto in Conca dei Marini, renowned for its intense green waters and reachable only by boat.


   Gran Caffè Amalfi

Open since 1936, this historic café is the cultural heart of Amalfi, a meeting place for residents to discuss local events over espresso. Grab a seat on the terrace for the most magnificent view of the sunset and a refreshing shakerato.

From this unassuming little storefront on the bustling Piazza dei Dogi come the most delicious, creative panini on the Amalfi Coast. Meats and cheeses await to be sliced to order and composed into surprising new combinations on pillowy, fresh-baked bread—don’t miss the La Stangata, made with mortadella, provolone del monaco, and a sweet-and-savory eggplant and pistachio jam.

   Take the tunnel to Atrani

At just under 30 acres and with a population of less than 1,000 people, the tiny fishing village of Atrani is one of the Amalfi Coast’s best-kept secrets. It’s a quick taxi ride from Amalfi, but for a fun excursion, take a 10-minute walk to get there through a pedestrian tunnel that feels like a secret portal to the quaint, less-traveled town.

   Museo della Carta

Housed in a medieval mill, this museum showcases Amalfi’s past as a producer of fine handmade paper. The craft was introduced here during the Middle Ages by Arab trading partners, and Amalfi became famous in Italy for the paper known as bambagina. Stop by the gift shop to pick up some beautiful souvenirs made with this luxuriously thick, handcrafted material.

   Duomo di Amalfi

With a striking striped marble facade, this grand cathedral is impossible to miss in the town’s central piazza. Begun in the 9th century, it was added to over centuries, resulting in a grand mixture of styles that includes magnificent bronze doors crafted in Istanbul in the 11th century, a largely Baroque interior, and a Romanesque bell tower.
