Top 15 things to do in Amalfi

1. Duomo di Sant'Andrea

Remodeled many times since the ninth century, Duomo di Sant'Andrea is home to the Crypt of St. Andrew. Two crosses--one a 13th-century wooden crucifix, the other mother of pearl brought from the Holy Land--represent two different periods in the cathedral's history. The bronze doors of the church were cast in the city of Constantinople before 1066, making them the city's earliest architectural feature of post-Roman manufacture. Visit the gardens, where arches, colonnades, and sculptures blend in with the colorful landscaping.
Suggested duration: 30 minutes

2. Il Sentiero Degli Dei, Positano

Enjoy fabulous views of the Amalfi Coast and the island of Capri along Il Sentiero Degli Dei, a scenic footpath on the slopes of Monte Peruso. Linking the tiny hilltop town of Agerola with Nocelle, this 7 km (4.3 mi) path is considered challenging but offers many viewing points with wooden benches and chairs for picnicking--ideal spots for taking a rest.

3. Villa Rufolo, Ravello

Renowned for its moonlight concerts, Villa Rufolo was built in the 13th century for a wealthy local family. The villa is famed for its cascading gardens, which were created in 1853 by Francis Neville Reid, a Scotsman who bought the property and not only took care of its restoration, but also designed the current layout. The gardens are known for their luxurious flower beds, which blossom in bursts of exotic colors throughout the year, as well as for offering panoramic views of the world-famous Amalfi Coast. German composer Richard Wagner visited the villa in 1880 and was so overcome by the attractiveness of the location that he later used it as a setting in of one of his operas. Check the official website for an accurate list of all upcoming concerts and other events at this site.

One of the highlights of Villa Cimbrone Gardens is the Terrace of Infinity, a natural balcony with 18th-century marble busts and views of the sea, lemon groves, and mountains. As you walk through gardens of this historic villa, you'll wander past oak, alder, and chestnut trees. Make your way down to the natural cave that is home to a 19th-century marble statue of Eve. Walk up the stairway to the rose gardens to breathe in the scent of French and English roses. Look for the inscription quoting poet Omar Khayyám. Latch on to a guide at the entrance if you want to see all the sculptures and learn their stories.

8. Cloister del Paradiso

Blending Romanesque austerity with elegant Moorish-style architecture, Cloister del Paradiso is a true slice of paradise and one of the symbols of Amalfi Coast. Built in a secluded corner of the cathedral between 1266 and 1268, this cloister was used as the final resting place for noble families in medieval times. A garden planted with palm trees and surrounded by 120 slender twin columns is probably a 20th-century addition. Numerous sculptures, sarcophaguses, and remnants of 13th-century frescoes make it an open-air museum.

10. Amalfi Coast, Amalfi Coast

Drive--or take a bus--along Amalfi Coast, a scenic route that curves along the southern cliffs of the Sorrento Peninsula. Travel between towns and villages like Salerno, Ravello, Amalfi, and Positano, while stopping at view points, beaches, Roman ruins, and churches. Twist around hairpin turns on roads carved into the side of the coast, before stopping in beautiful villages that have inspired artists over the centuries, from 14th-century writer Giovanni Boccaccio to playwright Tennessee Williams.

11. Valle delle Ferriere

At Valle delle Ferriere, take a peaceful walk through lush woods of tall chestnut and lemon trees, and long-leaved ferns dating back to prehistoric times. Intersected by cool streams and waterfalls, the path leads through a protected habitat of rare pre-glacial plants, past ruins of medieval foundries that gave the area its name. Protected from the cold northern winds by rocky ridges, the valley is also known as the Vallone dei Mulini after a number of abandoned water-powered mills that once produced famous Amalfi paper. If you need to catch your breath while soaking up the lovely scenery, relax on one of the several benches along the way.
