About the ride from Capri to Amalfi

Capri and the Amalfi coast are among the most popular tourist gems in Italy. If you look at some of the pictures of these places, you’ll quickly understand why. These spots are out of this world beautiful!

  • Hopping on a high speed ferry that will take you to Amalfi in just one hour

The ferries have both indoor and outdoor seating. If you’re quick enough when boarding the ferry, you might be able to grab yourself an outdoor spot and enjoy mesmerizing views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, and the beautiful Southern Italy coastal towns.


What to see when traveling from Capri to Amalfi

When traveling on a ferry between Capri and Amalfi, you’ll be rewarded with some beautiful views. The ride only takes one hour, but the blue seas, sunny skies, and coastal towns dotted next to each other will make you wish your ride lasted just a bit longer.

The Amalfi coast is a mountainous region that sits between Naples and Salerno. The entire area is dotted with gorgeous towns and surrounded by lush green hills on one side, and the crystal clear sea waters on the other side. Combine all of this and you have got some pretty amazing scenery.

If you’re taking a ferry from Capri Island, you’ll arrive in the region’s main town, Amalfi. As soon as you step foot in the town, you’ll see how beautiful Amalfi actually is. Multi-colored houses packed on hills overlooking the sea is a sight you won’t forget. Have your camera ready, as this is one of the most instagrammable spots you’ll come across.

Take a stroll around town, and visit the town’s major attractions: the cathedral and the Piazza del Duomo.

There are many more small towns in this region, and you can experience them in several different ways. Some people like to rent a car and explore the area at their own pace. Others like to hop on a boat from Amalfi and visit a couple of towns in just one day. The northern part of the region also has its own train route, the famous La Circumvesuviana Line. It runs from Naples to Sorrento and has some truly amazing scenery next to it, including Mount Vesuvius.

Some of the towns worth visiting on the Amalfi coast include Positano, Praiano, Ravello, Maiori, Cetara, Furore, and more. Even though they have some things in common, such as houses packed on hills, each town has its own unique style and vibe to it.

This region also has beautiful nature and many hiking trails. The Ferriere Valley sits in the province of Salerno and has some wonderful spots you can explore if you enjoy hiking and the outdoors. The valley also has many amazing waterfalls, which you can get to via hiking and cycling trails.

What is the best time of year to visit Amalfi?

The best time to visit Amalfi is during the spring and fall. Even though summer has the best weather, and the most spectacular, sunny views, the Amalfi coast is one of the most popular tourist spots in all of Italy. Because of that, it can get pretty crowded during the warmest months of the year.

On the other hand, travelers who enjoy the lively, buzzing atmosphere should visit the coast during the summer. Many festivals are organized in the summer, including the Regatta of the Ancient Maritime Republics, Festival of Sant'Antonio, Ravello Festival, and Ferragosto.

You can also visit Amalfi during the winter. However, this is the lowest season, and many businesses will be closed at this time of year. If you really want to feel like you have the entire town to yourself, head to Amalfi in December!
