Great place to spend the afternoon

There is much to see and do, and if you like taking pictures this is a great place. Also lots of places to shop and ear.

Wandering the main street, exploring interesting shops, taking in the views, reading about the historic fountain, admiring Moorish-influenced craftsmanship on the church, taking side-paths for unique experiences, eating at the local cafes, and soaking up the local color and charming character ... that is what tourists do here in Amalfi.

Wonderful place to stop and take pictures of the cathedral overlooking the square. It's a climb up the staircase to get inside.

It is well worth trecking up the stairs to see the Cintrada S. Simone in Amafi town. It is as beautiful snide as it is outside.

The impressive flight of steps up to the cathedral from the small town square of Amalfi makes this a great place to take your photos

The best views for tourists are from a boat on the water, but for somebody looking to see the culture and enjoy the experience go into town and speak with locals. Much to see!

Obviously a popular tourist town, it has a picturesque harbour area, narrow streets with many small shops, cafes and restaurants leading into the piazza with the striking Duoma [cathedral] of St. Andrew.

The narrow streets have a lot of character and is a good way to stroll through in the evenings. Window or actual shopping in the various small outlets which beckon you are colorful and full of locally made products from Chilies, to pasta herbs and lemon chello. The side streets that branch off are equally interesting and the area abounds... More
