Amalfi Coast – Our European Adventure

I loved our stay on the Amalfi Coast! We stayed in Atrani, which is a really beautiful tiny town, a short walk from the town of Amalfi. The evening we arrived we saw a lovely sunset, which was a great start to our Amalfi adventure.

It was a little colder than we expected (this was in mid May), so swimming was off the table during our stay. The plus side was that tourist season hadn’t fully kicked in so it was less busy and more peaceful which I was happy with!

Below is stunning Atrani during the day – I love it! that stunning bridge and gorgeous coloured buildings right on the ocean.

This is Amalfi, just around the headland from Atrani.

This stunning church in Amalfi was easily my favourite in Europe. The ceilings were stunning, normally I’d find this find of building too busy, but something about this one just worked! Maybe the colours and tones of the paintings with the white and gold edging  – loved the chandeliers and paintings.chandelier Amalfi ChurchAmalfi stunning church ceiling paintingsamalfi church door details

We caught a bus along the windy coast road to Positano! This town was really beautiful if a little busier than our peaceful Atrani and Amalfi.

We caught the bus up the hill to Ravello – a lovely villiage overlooking the ocean. We then began the many many steps down! I thought we’d done a lot of walking and were going to be just fine, but my legs turned to jelly and it wasn’t super fun to move for the next few days!ravello to atrani walk - amalfi coastarchway in ravello italyflowers along the walk from ravello to atranibeautiful handmade ceramic tiles italyravello handmade ceramic sign

We entered on a side of Atrani we hadn’t ventured yet, this is one of the churches of Atrani. We ended up walking down steps towards the main square until we saw something familiar and realised we’d just passed where we were staying!

We’d been meaning to head up here to see what was here! Along the pedestrian tunnel between Amalfi and Atrani there is another tunnel and then lift up to a cemetery on the hillside. There are layers and layers of marble coffins and this stunning view.Amalfi view from the cemeterycliffside views and flowers amalfi coastbeautiful old tower amalfi coastAtrani stunning bridge arches and steps
