Vacation rentals in Amalfi
Amalfi is a true pearl on the Mediterranean and attracts with a correspondingly wide selection of holiday accommodation on the azure blue coast. You have the choice between a cosy holiday apartment in the lively centre near the Duomo Amalfi or a spacious vacation rental on Via delle Cartiere, where you can enjoy the view of the sea from your terrace. Especially beautiful is your stay in an apartment directly on the coast. The accommodation along Via Lungomare die Cavalieri, Piazza Flavio Gioia and the beautiful coastal road Strada Statale 163 Amalfitana are highly recommended.

Travelers and Activities
Take a stroll through the eventful history of the region and visit monuments worth seeing such as the Moorish-style Duomo di Sant'Andrea. Inside you will find magnificent ornaments and the medieval cathedral treasure as well as the graves of numerous Amalfi noblemen. If, on the other hand, you are interested in maritime history, you can visit the old shipyard "Corsp Roma", which is the oldest preserved shipyard building in southern Italy. The programme is rounded off by a number of museums worth visiting, such as the Paper Museum and the Lemon Museum, as well as a visit to the ironworks valley (Valle delle Ferriere).
The "Premio Amalfi" prize for sociology and social sciences is named after the city and is also awarded there.
Things to know
Culture lovers book their holiday apartment in Amalfi best for spring between March and early June or for autumn between mid-September and late October. The combination of mild temperatures and many hours of sunshine makes the exploration tours particularly pleasant. If you want to cool off in the Mediterranean, however, it is better to rent your vacation rental on the Amalfi coast for midsummer.
