So, if you are an Instagram addict, there is no better destination to take unforgettable and like-grabbing photos. Read on, we will reveal the 10 most instagrammable places on the Amalfi Coast.
1# – The Marina Grande beach in Positano
It’s impossible not to include the Marina Grande beach in Positano in this list: it is one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy as well as one of the most photographed places on the coast. It is an immense and enchanting expanse of dark sand and pebbles surrounded by a very suggestive scene of colorful houses. It is beautiful at any time of the day but with the sunset lights it becomes even more romantic.
2# – The Fjord of Furore
Another beach, which attracts Instagrammers from all over the world, is the Furore fjord, a corner of paradise in the midst of nature. It is a small inlet, just 25 meters long, nestled between two sides of the mountain. The great Italian director Roberto Rossellini was literally bewitched by it, and shot several scenes of “The Miracle” here, one of his most famous films.
3# – The Cathedral of Amalfi
One of the most loved and instagrammed places on the Amalfi Coast is the wonderful Amalfi Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of Sant’Andrea. It dates back to the 9th century although at the beginning of the 13th century it was rebuilt in Arab-Norman style. The beautiful facade, rebuilt in the 19th century, and the scenic staircase are perfect for a super Instagrammable photo.
4# – Villa Cimbrone in Ravello
“Incomparable […] which rises among roses and oleanders on a plateau from where the gaze extends into the sea“. This is how the German traveler Gregorovius defined it way back in 1835. It is one of the places most loved by Instagrammers, in particular for the splendid Terrace of Infinity. Decorated with Roman style statues, it offers one of the most beautiful views of the coast.
5# – Villa Rufolo in Ravello
Also in Ravello there is another place that is very popular on Instagram. We are talking about the magnificent Villa Rufolo, which enchanted artists such as Wagner, Toscanini and Fellini. Typical example of the Arab-Sicilian style, the building dates back to the late thirteenth century. Its enchanting gardens suspended over the sea seem made to be photographed.
6# – The alleys of Vietri sul Mare
Famous for the noble and colorful art of ceramics, Vietri sul Mare is a small jewel that offers potentially perfect views for social media. Between colorful houses and shops, the entire town seems to be made of ceramic. On Instagram the photographs of its colorful alleys are full of likes. In particular, a small road located near the police station.
7# – The Path of the Gods
Another unmissable stop, much appreciated on Instagram, is the Path of the Gods, one of the most beautiful and famous nature trails in the world. It connects Agerola (or Praiano) to Positano, crossing villages and landscapes of the Amalfi Coast. Along the path there are several panoramic terraces from which it is possible to admire (and photograph) truly enchanting views.
8# – The Church of Santa Maria Assunta in Positano
Among the most instagrammable places on the Amalfi Coast, the Church of Santa Maria Assunta in Positano certainly could not be missing, renowned for its magnificent facade and large majolica dome in shades of yellow, green and blue, easily recognizable from every corner of the town . You can’t leave the coast without taking at least one photo of this fascinating building.
9# – The Designer Benches in Cetara
A pretty fishing village, Cetara is famous for its beauty but also for the anchovy sauce, a sauce with very ancient origins which is obtained from the maturation of salted anchovies. The photos of the designer benches, decorated with ceramics or with writings, which accompany the course of the town from Piazza Martiri Ungheresi to the sea, are enjoying great success on Instagram.
10# – The Valley of the Ironworks
Finally, if you want to amaze your followers, you can’t miss the Valle delle Ferriere nature trail, which descends from the Lattari Mountains towards Amalfi, crossing woods and alongside streams. The valley is so called because of the ruins of the ancient medieval ironworks which were used for the production of paper. Along the way there are many corners and views to photograph.
