Italy’s Amalfi Coast II: Amalfi and Positano

These two little jewels are the most touristy of all the towns in the Amalfi Coast. We were there at the end of September, which was still high season along that region. The people are super friendly, speak various languages and, understandably, they seem to appreciate tourists. After all, tourism is their sole source of income.

Amalfi. Its main attraction is the Saint Andrew’s Cathedral (Duomo) overlooking the Piazza Duomo, at the heart of Amalfi. Walking around its narrow streets or just people watching is a lot of fun.

Positano. This tiny and picturesque village is a real delight, with lots of nice boutiques, galleries, restaurants and a nice beach.
