Beach
“When you'll come on the Amalfi Coast you’ll be spoiled for choice: in addition to the most famous and well-known places, you can visit the villages outside of the usual tours, fishing villages, natural wonders such as marine grottos, small beaches (some of them are reachable only by sea) and solitary coves. And what’s better than a boat trip? Imagine swimming in crystal clear waters, discovering and exploring inlets and enjoying the sun and the gentle sea breeze while sipping a drink and crunching snacks… Imagine having a delicious meal in a characteristic restaurant where fish dishes are served, daily fresh fish caught by local fishermen. Your dreams will come true! And don’t even worry about setting it up… I got this!!! Salvatore’s boat is for max. 6 guests cruising on board and tours will start from May 15th. This experience along the “Divina Costa” will make your holidays stunning and unforgettable.”

Beach
“No. Not the beach. Amalfi is not a seaside resort, we have a beautiful sea, deep and clean, but very few beaches, only of gravel and rock. Those who come to Amalfi ALSO take baths, but certainly not only these. The best way to enjoy the sea is to rent a small boat, sail along the coast, and swim in a small isolated beach.”

“This place is an antique and tradicional bakery of Amalfi from 1830. For 5 generations, they are the best one. Please if you go there try Baba'Rhum with cream, I have a funny story with this dessert... When I first arrive in the Coast I didn't like it, because is cold and wet. Butt this was before... I learned how to like it, and is not every Baba that I like... just pansa one. Please also try: The famous lemon delight Tiramisu Bavarese a nocciola Cornetto levito madre a cioccolatto (the tradicional) ”

Museum
“The Arsenale was the shipyard of the Ancient Republic, where ships were built and repaired. The Amalfi Arsenal preserves intact its original early medieval structures, and is the only shipyard of the time that can now be visited in the Mediterranean area. Its imposing and elegant architecture modeled in stone and mortar has two parallel naves covered by a double series of cross vaults separated and supported by ten mighty pillars. In one of the two aisles is the Museum of the Bussola and the Duchy of Amalfi. Through a visit to this important monument and its museum you will have in a very short time a clear vision of the amazing history of the ancient Maritime Republic of Amalfi.”
