Experience Your Best Amalfi Coast Vacation

Located on Italy's Sorrentine Peninsula, just south of Naples, the Amalfi Coast has been a popular tourist destination for centuries. With its towering cliffs and sparkling blue waters, the region has culinary and natural beauty to spare.

The Amalfi Coast is dotted with picturesque villages, many of which are connected by hiking trails. With its white villas and flowering bushes, Positano is widely recognized as one of the Amalfi Coast's most beautiful destinations. For visitors from abroad, the localized Italian cuisine is one of the biggest draws in the area; you can find everything from world-class wine to homemade artisan gelato.

Best time to take a trip to Amalfi Coast

The best time to visit the Amalfi Coast is in the late spring or early fall, when the temperatures hover around 70F and the crowds are thinner. The summer is the high season, when temperatures regularly reach above 80F and the streets are crowded with people. The rainy season lasts from November to April. The region rarely experiences snow, but many of the businesses on the Amalfi Coast shut down in the winter months. If you do go during the winter, expect to find temperatures that rarely drop below 50F.
