It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone – John Steinbeck

The last stop of our Italy trip was the most incredible Amalfi Coast. Costiera Amalfitana, also referred to as the Amalfi Coast, is an incredible stretch of land with 13 picturesque towns about 60 kms from Naples in Southern Italy. The colorful vertical villages, the turquoise blue waters and the Mediterranean charm of the Amalfi Coast lures seasoned tourists and first time visitors alike. Designated as a UNESCO world heritage site, Amalfi coast is one of those bucket list places that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. Like any other place in Italy, spending at a week here would be ideal but if you prefer a shorter stay, I have the most perfect 3 day Amalfi Coast itinerary to cover the best places! With my 3 day Amalfi Coast itinerary, you get to visit the most popular Amalfi Coast towns of Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, visit the famous beach clubs of Amalfi Coast, take a day trip to Capri on a private boat tour, sip limoncello and dine at beautiful restaurants with gorgeous sunset views.

Amalfi coast has everything you’d want in a vacation – beautiful terraced gardens with spectacular sea views, the most clear and turquoise beaches, restaurants with lemon groves, colorful seaside towns and a drive that is equally thrilling and breathtaking. The quote above from John Steinbeck resonates accurately about Positano and the Amalfi Coast – It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone! Let’s take a look at how to plan and everything you need to know for a perfect trip to Amalfi Coast in 3 days.

Amalfi Coast Travel Guide

Everything you need to know about Amalfi Coast trip planning!

Arrange for a private transportation and take a road trip along the Amalfi Coast. We stopped at the Amalf Coast towns of Amalfi, Ravello as well as the small villages of Praiano, Furore, Conca dei Marini and Atrani.

Take a private boat tour of Capri from Positano, Amalfi or Sorrento and explore the amazing faraglioni rock formations, blue grotto, Marina Piccolo and more along the way. Visit the amazing town of Capri, take the chair lift to Montesolaro in Anacapri for incredible panoramic sea views.

Explore the colorful vertical village of Positano, the most famous town in the Amalfi Coast. Visit the Spiaggia Grande beach, hike the path of gods or spend a chill day at a beach club. A relaxing day at the beach club was the perfect way to end our Italy trip!

If you have time and prefer to explore more, visit the nearby towns of Sorrento and Vietri Sul Mare.

Half Day Tour of Capri by Private Boat

4 hour personalized tour with 100+ 5-star reviews and expert skipper/guide.

Spend your first day exploring the main towns of Amalfi Coast. To save time, we took a private day tour of Amalfi, Ravello and the towns in between. Private transportation or taxi is the best way and easiest way to explore these towns in a day. If you have more days, you could spend a day in each of these villages hiking, dining and sightseeing.

These are the stops we made on our way.

Praiano is a small fishing village close to Positano. It is a hidden gem that is often overlooked and is worth a stop. I suggest you check out Praiano on Day 1. If you love Praino, spend more time at the beach and exploring the town on the 3rd day of your Amalfi Coast itinerary. These are a few of my favorite things to do in Praiano.

  • Visit the beautiful Church of San Gennaro. It is a small church with gorgeous sea views.
  • Spend some time chilling at the Marina di Praia. It is a good place to relax and one of the less expensive beach clubs in Amalfi Coast.
  • Hike the Path of the Gods (Sentiero degli Dei). This famous trail offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Amalfi Coast and Tyrrhenian Sea.
  • Stop at Salvatore’s fruit shop on the way for best Instagram worthy photo.

Furore is a tiny fishing village hidden in a fjord. The paths and stairs are not easily visible from the coastline, so it remained hidden for a long time. It is a must visit place in Amalfi Coast and you can see why! The stairs to the beach were blocked when we visited so we had to settle for views from the bridge!

If you missed the Blue Grotto in Capri, visit the Emerald Grotto in Conca de Marini. It is a nice stop along the way but the grotto left me wanting for more. If you plan to buy any ceramics, visit the ceramic store in Conca dei Marini. We bought two beautifully handpainted plant pots that they shipped all the way to the US. More on that in the shopping section.

The town of Amalfi has a rich history and was once a thriving trading port in the Mediterranean. It is a beautiful town with a lot of things to do. You could easily spend a day or two exploring Amalfi. If you are short of time, 

  • Walk around the Centro (the historic center). The town’s narrow, winding streets are filled with boutiques, cafes, and gelaterias.
  • Visit the Amalfi Cathedral (Duomo di Amalfi). The Cathedral of Saint Andrew dominates the town’s main square with its stunning architecture, including a grand staircase, a beautiful cloister (Chiostro del Paradiso), and a museum.
  • Stop by the Amalfi’s main beach, Marina Grande. It is a beautiful beach with great views of Amalfi town and the Tyrrhenian sea.
  • You can have lunch at one of the awesome seafront restaurants or choose to have lunch in Ravello.

Atrani, often overshadowed by its famous neighbor, Amalfi, is a quaint and picturesque town. I highly recommend exploring this historic town center and the Piazetta (the main square of Atrani).

If you plan to have some beach time, check out Atrani’s beach. It is less crowded and offers a more relaxing experience.

Ravello is a gem in Amalfi coast and also its musical capital. It is a village nestled high above the sea with beautiful infinity gardens, terraced hills with breathtaking views and would surely make your jaw drop.

Ravello is easily one of my favorite towns in the Amalfi Coast. I would love to stay at one of the exclusive hotels here next time! Pictures do not do justice to Ravello. It is a dream. 

  • Villa Cimbrone: Infinity gardens, a beautiful villa and great sculptures overlooking the sea. This is Italian version of paradise! This is also the famous spot featured in several movies like Wonder Woman. “Terrace of Infinity” gardens provide spectacular views of the Mediterranean.
  • Villa Rufolo: Known for its stunning architecture and exquisite gardens, Villa Rufolo offers panoramic views of the coastline. Its terraces host the Ravello Festival during the summer, where classical music concerts are held in a setting with an unforgettable backdrop.
  • Stop here for lunch and I assure you that you won’t be disappointed. We were a little early for lunch and enjoyed the whole place to ourselves.
  • Visit the main square of Ravello, Piazza Vescovado, is surrounded by the cathedral (Duomo) and several cafes. It’s a perfect place to relax, enjoy a coffee,

Capri is a little piece of paradise on earth. It was the summer home of many emperors of Ancient Rome. You can see why they chose this island once you go there. It is one of the most beautiful places we’ve been to. I cannot wait to go back to this heaven on earth.

There are two options to reach Capri from the mainland. You can take a ferry to Capri from Positano or any of the towns on Amalfi Coast like Sorrento, Amalfi or choose a private boat tour from the towns of Amalfi Coast.

Half Day Tour of Capri by Private Boat

4 hour personalized tour with 100+ 5-star reviews and expert skipper/guide.

A private boat tour is a best option to explore the coast of Capri and avoid the crowded ferry. The guides/skippers of boat tours know the best spots for swimming, snorkeling and spending time at the beach. With the boat tours, you will get a chance to see most of the popular places like Blue Grotto, Faraglioni rocks, Marina Piccolo and others. You can choose between half day or full day tours.
In addition to the boat tour, these are the best things to do on the Island of Capri.

When a sea cave is illuminated by sunlight, the result is the most spectacular turquoise waters.

Once you arrive in Capri, visit to the Blue Grotto should be the first thing you do (ideally by 10am). There is always a long queue to visit the Blue Grotto and takes hours to visit if you don’t go early.

Although we had planned for it, it was Noon by the time we reached the Blue Grotto. There was a 3 hour wait so we skipped it.

We did the rest of the half day Capri tour by private boat and it was pretty amazing!

Peaceful surroundings, magnificent coastal views, amazing gardens and birds chirping away melodiously – I imagine this is what heaven feels like. And you will get to experience that at this hotel. Dine at their restaurant for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Even better, choose this luxury hotel if you plan to stay in Capri. The food is amazing and an added bonus is that they use vegetables from their garden. Beats any farm-to-table!

After lunch, head over to Anacapri and take the chair lift to Montesolaro. Each lift accommodates one person only. It may not be as romantic and a bit scary if you are afraid of heights but it is a unique and thrilling experience. Once you reach the summit, you will forget all your fears and enjoy the best view of Capri Island and the sea. It was truly beautiful and was one of the highlights of our trip. 

You could also hike up the mountain instead of taking the chairlift. You can reach Anacapri by taking public buses from Capri town center.

Capri town center is so beautiful and a great place to take a stroll, shop the boutique stores.

If you have time, hike the natural arch or path of the gods for beautiful panoramic views of the steep cliffs of the island of Capri and Tyrrhenian sea.

Is there anything better than a relaxing time at a beach club? It was one of the rare moments that I dozed off and forgot where I was. Capri does that to you! La Fontelina is a great beach club to visit.

The final day of our perfect Amalfi Coast itinerary was all about Positano. It was our final day, so we decided to take it all in, rest and relax.

Nestled in the beautiful stretch of Amalfi Coast, Positano is a picturesque fishing village with homes built on high cliffs and overlooking the blue sea. It is the most popular destination with rocky beaches with black pebbles and most colorful and vibrant homes.

Legend says, thousands of years ago, it was Poseidon himself who created it as a present to the nymph Pasitea. But some say it was the Roman sailors who discovered the coastal area while escaping the pirates. Whoever it was, we are eternally grateful to them for discovering this colorful, vertical village that is Positano.

It is places like these that sometimes make you wonder if magic exists. How else would it be humanly possible to discover a place like this and shape it into one of the most beautiful places on earth? 

Positano is incredibly beautiful and offers several things to do. I recommend visiting Positano for a full day. If you prefer to explore other nearby towns, you can check out Salerno, Vietri Sul Mare or Sorrento.

The main attractions of Positano are the beautiful pebble beach of Spiaggia Grande (the main beach) and the never ending stairs with stunning views at every corner. Here’s how you can spend a day in Positano –

  • Start your day easy with a view of the sunrise and stroll along the beach.
  • Visit the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, the iconic landmark of Positano. It features a majestic dome tiled with majolica tiles and houses a Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary. It is unmissable with its golden tiled dome.
  • Stroll the streets of Positano and find unique things to shop like custom made leather sandals, hand made clothing and bags.
  • If you are up for it, hike the path of gods (Sentiero degli Dei) for the most spectacular views of Positano and the coastal towns.
  • Have lunch or dinner at one of the restaurants seaside recommended below.
  • Stop for an aperitif with incredible views of Positano at Franco Bar in Le Sirenuse Hotel.

After lunch, spend your time at one of the beaches or beach clubs of Positano. Some of my favorite beach clubs are Arienzo Beach Club, L’Incanto and Da Adolfo. While beaches like Fornillo Beach are incredible, the beach clubs are worth the extra cost as they provide beach chairs and such!

There are several options on Amalfi Coast depending on your price range and ease of access to public transportation.

  • If you are planning to use public transit a lot, stay in Sorrento. It is bigger, less expensive and has easy access to other parts of Amalfi Coast through ferries and public buses.
  • If you want storybook setting and are fascinated by the colorful vertical village, stay in Positano. Be prepared to take lots of stairs up and down for lunch and dinner. It is also most expensive of all the places to stay on Amalfi Coast. Make sure you read the reviews to know how far your hotel is from the beach because the stairs soon add up! The romance of Amalfi Coast soon wanes off and you will face the reality of life that is stairmaster! Our hotel was perfectly located in the center of Positano and wasn’t too far from the beach and it was perfect!
  • If you want peaceful surroundings with terraced views of hills and sea, choose Ravello. It is more secluded, peaceful and is less crowded.
  • If you want to be centrally located, choose Amalfi. It is lively with markets, marina and more things to do in general.
  • Another option is to stay on the island of Capri. Capri is a 45 min boat ride from Amalfi coast. I suggest staying in Capri for a few days if you have over a week to spend in Amalfi Coast. It is one fo the most breathtaking places on this planet!!

Irrespective of which place you choose, plan ahead and book early because Amalfi Coast is expensive and the hotels get sold out very quickly.

These are some of the hotels that would be perfect for your 3 days in Amalfi Coast. I repeat again – book early! We looked months ahead and many were already fully booked! Most of the luxury hotels are also very expensive so I suggest looking at Airbnb or homes if they are out of your budget.

  1. Bellevue Syrene: Founded in 1820, this historic hotel offers a blend of timeless elegance and modern luxury. With its spectacular cliff-top position overlooking the Bay of Naples, guests can enjoy breathtaking views, exquisite dining experiences, and private access to a beach.
  2. Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria: Set in a unique location atop the cliffs, offering panoramic views of the Bay of Naples, this hotel boasts a history of hospitality dating back to 1834. Its luxurious rooms, exquisite gardens, and fine dining options make it a perfect retreat.
  1. Le Sirenuse: A luxurious hotel in the heart of Positano offering stunning views of the sea from its beautifully appointed rooms and suites. The hotel also features a Michelin-starred restaurant, a champagne and oyster bar, and an aromatic spa.
  2. Il San Pietro di Positano: This exclusive hotel is carved into the cliffside, offering private beach access, a Michelin-starred restaurant, and rooms with private terraces overlooking the Mediterranean. The complimentary boat tours along the coast are a highlight.
  1. Hotel Santa Caterina: A late 19th-century liberty style villa turned 5-star hotel, Hotel Santa Caterina offers a spectacular setting on the Amalfi Drive, just outside Amalfi. Guests can enjoy a saltwater infinity pool, a private beach club, and dining with panoramic views.
  1. Belmond Hotel Caruso: Set in an 11th-century building, this beautiful hotel offers rooms with panoramic views of the coastline, an infinity pool suspended between sea and sky, and an exquisite dining experience. The garden and historical architecture add to its charm.

  1. Hotel Caesar Augustus: Perched on a cliff 300 meters above the sea, Hotel Caesar Augustus offers perhaps the most spectacular views on the island of Capri. Once a private home, it now serves as an exclusive retreat featuring beautifully appointed rooms, an infinity pool that seems to stretch into the sea, a renowned restaurant serving local and Mediterranean delicacies, and personalized service that caters to every guest’s needs.
  2. J.K Place Capri : Overlooking the Marina Grande, this boutique hotel combines modern luxury with classic elegance, featuring a stunning pool, a world-class spa, and tailored services for an exclusive stay.

Fresh food is in abundance in Amalfi Coast with offerings like seafood, fresh fruits, marinated veggies, pizza and pasta, limoncello and local wine. If you love to try new foods, go on a culinary exploration as below.

  • Visit a grocery store and try some Cedro Sorrento lemons. These lemons are unique in that they can be eaten with the peel and flesh as a salad.
  • If you love olives, try the Sorrento olives!
  • Stop by a fresh fruit juice bar where you can buy the best pomegranate juice. There is a fruit stand just past Positano (going towards Amalfi) at a vista point. Salvatore, the owner, is the sweetest guy and his fresh fruit juices are the best!
  • While in Capri, try the Caprese salad at it’s birthplace.

Le Tre Sorelle

This unassuming restaurant on Positano beach is a great place to people watch and enjoy delicious seafood. We loved the marinated anchovies so much that we dined here 3 times. The catch of the day and marinated veggies are also a must try. Keep room for a shot of limoncello.

Da Adolfo

It is a unique experience with a private boat tour to the beach club and dining at a remote beach. You can reserve beach chairs and spend the day swimming along with lunch.

Franco bar

This bar at La Sirenuse Hotel has one of the best views of Positano. Stop for a drink and enjoy amazing sunset views.

Casa e Bottega 

This a great spot for healthier breakfast and lunch salads.

La Tagliata

For best sunset views, go to La Tagliata. It is a farm-to-table restaurant with a pre-fixed menu and you just can’t beat the views! Their anti-pasti course was to die for! Note that the menu is pre-fixed and they don’t do replacements. If you have dietary restrictions, it may not be the best place.

La Terrazza di Lucullo

I had already mentioned the restaurant at Hotel Caesar Augustus called Restaurant La Terrazza di Lucullo. A must visit in Capri. The Caprese salad, fresh grilled fish were simple yet delicious.

Also the restaurant in Villa Rufolo in Ravello is a great place with spectacular views.

NOTE: Many of these restaurants need reservations well in advance to get a spot.

Amalfi Coast is known for its ceramics, limoncello, custom made shoes, wine and many more. If you would like to do some shopping, check out these tips.

  • For ceramics, visit Piccadilly Ceramiche in Conca dei Marini. It is cheaper than all the ceramic stores in Positano and has many unique customized pieces. They also ship items directly to your home so no need to worry about luggage.
  • For Limoncello, Cello Factory in Ravello is a must. Limoncello is a liqueur made from lemon peel and vodka. It is a digestif and a pretty strong one. Try the various limoncello flavors and buy the crema di limone, crema di pistachio and many other cream liqueurs made from fruits. The taste of imported limoncellos in the US is not the same as the ones at the source.
  • Buy local wines like Greco di Tufo, Taurasi from the Vesuvius region and taste the earthiness, smokiness of the volcanic soils!
  • Shop at the local stores for custom leather sandals and unique clothing in Positano.

Amalfi Coast Itinerary: Travel Tips and FAQs

Honestly, 3 days does not even scratch the surface but adequate to get a feel of some of the popular towns and pay each one a visit. Ideally, to leisurely visit all the beautiful towns of Amalfi Coast and the attractions around Amalfi Coast, you will need at least a week. Each town deserves a day at the least. There is so much to do and see around Amalfi Coast like the historic sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum. However, if you plan ahead, you can visit most of the popular spots in Amalfi Coast in 3 days.

This list is for visiting Amalfi Coast in the summer. Choose comfortable clothing and shoes made for walking.

  • Dresses, shorts, jeans, tops and beachwear.
  • Light jacket for evenings (just in case)
  • Sneakers, flip flops and other comfortable shoes as you can expect a lot of walking.
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • First-aid kit

Download my free travel checklist and planner and don’t miss a thing in your packing list.

May – September is the ideal time as the weather is warm and perfect to visit Amalfi coast.

June – August is the high season and most crowded.

In winter, it is mostly deserted with the locals leaving the coast in search of warm beaches. You can still visit in off season but fewer places and restaurants to be open.

I personally prefer to visit in May or tail end of summer (in September) as it is not as crowded as the peak summer months.

We haven’t once felt unsafe in Amalfi Coast. People are nice and friendly and treat you like old friends or family. Use caution as you would anywhere else and you will be fine.

Absolutely! You can spend the morning in Amalfi and head to Positano in the afternoon. Have lunch in Positano, explore the Spiaggia Grande and the town center, and end your day with dinner and beautiful sunset views.

While planning your itinerary, consider the time it takes to get to Amalfi Coast. Getting to Amalfi Coast takes about half a day depending on the mode of transport and your home base in Amalfi Coast. Even with private transfer, it took us 3 hours from Naples to Positano due to traffic.

Nearest aiports

The nearest airport to Amalfi Coast is Naples International Airport. The next closest airport is Rome International Airport.

Train

Most high speed trains stop at Naples or Salerno. We took Trenitalia from Florence to Naples and couldn’t have been more happier.

Naples to Amalfi Coast

Once you arrive in Naples, there are several options –

  • Take a train called Circumvesuviana to Sorrento. This also stops at Pompeii if you plan to visit.
  • Take a ferry directly from Naples that takes you to Sorrento and transfer to your base from there. To take the ferry however, you need to take a taxi from airport/train station to the ferry dock.
  • Book private transportation to your destination to save time. We took a private taxi and highly recommend it. It is an additional cost compared to other options like bus/ferry but saves time and multiple transfers.
  • Renting a car. Unless you are an experienced driver in Italy, this option is not recommended. The Amalfi Coast drive is narrow and winding and is not for the faint of heart.

SITA buses (public buses) are a good option but be prepared for long queues during peak season (i.e all through the summer). If you have a week to spend, public transit is a good option. If not, I recommend a private tour to save time. We took a private car tour of Amalfi Coast. You can customize the tour as per your preferences. There are many companies that offer private or small group tours.

Ferries are another option to travel within Amalfi Coast and to/from Capri. Check this website for schedule.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Whether you spend 3 days or a week, you will enjoy exploring the beautiful hillside towns of Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and the Island of Capri. I hope you enjoyed this 3 day Amalfi Coast itinerary and use this as a reference for your trip to the Amalfi Coast. If you are planning a visit and have questions, contact me and I’d be glad to help you.

If you plan to visit Amalfi Coast for more than 3 days, you could add a day trip to Pompeii, a trip to Sorrento or Mount Vesuvius to your itinerary. And if you are visiting other parts of Italy, check out my posts below.

Like any other vacation, this too felt too short. However, we are glad to have experienced “La Dolce Vita” of Italians and enjoy Italy’s diverse landscape.

I feel like I left part of my soul there. I can’t wait to visit Amalfi Coast again, it is truly heaven on earth!

          Thank you so much for taking the time to read. Some of them on the Positano beach are average priced. The ones in Capri and Ravello are on the expensive side.

  17. Jackie on August 18, 2021 at 8:16 am

    Fabulous guidebook! Can you tell me more about the private tour? How much did it cost approximately and how did you “order it”? I can’t see it on their website. Can you provide more details on where and what you did please ?

    • Aswani on November 14, 2021 at 4:12 am

      I contacted them through WhatsApp. The company is mentioned in the transportation section. 🙂

  18. avery mia on October 26, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    I have the most perfect 3-day itinerary to visit Amalfi Coast! With my 3 day Amalfi Coast itinerary, you get to visit the most popular towns of Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, take a day trip to Capri with plenty of beach time.

    Thank you for all the info!!! I’m traveling to the Amalfi Coast in May on my own and I’m having difficulties to choose a place to stay. Amalfi very well centered or Positano? 6 nights. Maybe 3 and 3? The thing is, I’m alone so moving around with luggage could be difficult.
    Also, I arrive to Naples International Airport in the evening. Should I take a taxi to Amalfi or Positano or would it be very expensive?
    And last question: to spend the day in Capri, should I take the ferry early morning and take the last ferry back in the evening? Thank you for your help in advance!

      Your best bet would be Sorrento for central location. It has access to ferries and many public buses to travel anywhere within Amalfi Coast. 3 and 3 would be perfect. Amalfi would also be a good location.
      Taxi from Naples to Amalfi or Positano is pretty expensive and public transit or ferry take some time. You could probably stay in Naples for the night and take a ferry in the morning?
      For Capri, that’s what we did and we were able to cover most of the places. It is very doable but tiring.
      Hope this helps and enjoy the beautiful coast! 🙂

    I stumbled across your blog, and it’s got wonderful information for a visit to the Amalfi Coast. I’m going there for the first time next month and wondered how difficult it will be to drive and park. We’re staying in Sorrento. A rental car is included in the package. Any advice greatly appreciated!
