Guide to Amalfi

“For an Amalfitan the day he goes to heaven is just like any other day”

With gleaming white buildings set against a backdrop of green forests above the blue of the sea, the town of Amalfi has been aptly named the ‘Pearl of the Amalfi Coast’. This is quite the accolade for a coastline scattered with so many gems.

As the capital of this stretch of coast, Amalfi is great stop-off for those enjoying a crewed yacht charter in the Mediterranean. For centuries the town acted as a trade bridge between the Byzantine and western worlds and joined the ranks of Pisa, Venice and Genoa as a maritime republic. This is celebrated every year in June when each of the four towns takes it in turns to host the Regatta of the Four Ancient Maritime Republics to battle it out for bragging rights.

Today, the Italian town of Amalfi continues to attract those who love to travel by sea, wth its marina is filled with an array of boats from colourful fishing boats to luxury yachts. The buildings wind in from the water’s edge into the cliffs, creating a perfect Mediterranean scene worthy of any postcard. As you step ashore from your luxury yacht rental and make your way into the cobbled streets of Amalfi town, you’ll be greeted with the heady Italian mix of aromas of fresh coffee, jasmine and lemons.

The focal point of the town is the Piazza del Duomo which is set in front of the striking cathedral. Here you’ll find the square lined with sidewalk cafes and elegant shops and steps leading up to the beautiful Byzantine-style church which, with its stunning frescoes, forest of columns and dramatic arches, is well-worth the walk up. Beyond the town, lemon groves wind through the hills and provide a perfect stop-off for a locally made chilled limoncello.

On an Italy yacht charter itinerary that could include Positano, Capri and Sorrento, Amalfi is a must-see to experience both the history and the beauty of this region of West Italy.

If you are considering a crewed yacht charter vacation, you will experience the freedom and exclusivity to explore all of these incredible destinations. Start planning your trip now by viewing all Amalfi Coast luxury yachts for private charter
