Positano is the coast’s most picturesque and photogenic town, with steeply-stacked houses tumbling down to the sea in a cascade of sun-bleached peach, pink and terracotta colors. No less colorful are its steep streets and steps lined with wisteria-draped hotels, smart restaurants, and fashionable boutiques.
Amalfi, with its sun-filled piazzas and small beach, was once a maritime superpower with a population of more than 70,000 and a fleet that controlled the whole region. Amalfi minted its own coins and established “rules of the sea”—the basics of which survive today.
Main Sights: Cathedral This church is “Amalfi Romanesque” (a mix of Moorish and Byzantine flavors, built c. 1000-1300), with a fanciful Neo-Byzantine facade from the 19th century. Paper Museum Paper has been a vital industry here since Amalfi’s glory days in the Middle Ages.
Arsenal Museum This small, underground museum just across the road from the bus station tells the history of Amalfi’s maritime glory years.
Sitting high in the hills above Amalfi, Ravello is a refined, polished town almost entirely dedicated to tourism.
Top Sights: The Cathedral forming the eastern flank of Piazza Duomo, the cathedral was originally built in 1086. Villa Rufolo was built in the 13th century for the wealthy Rufolo dynasty and was home to several popes as well as King Robert of Anjou. Villa Cimbrone Gardens.
