Experience luxury, leisure, and an immersion into Italy’s rich history when you sign up for Amalfi Coast tours in time for the holidays. Declared by UNESCO as a “World Heritage Site”, the Amalfi Coast is distinct for its whitewashed and colored houses connected by a seemingly endless labyrinth of stairways and narrow alleys. The picturesque town is also known for its beautiful bougainvillea and carnations as well as its postcard-worthy turquoise waters. There’s so much to do here—including tours of the historic city center and the wonderful Christmas markets if you’re visiting in December.
With the guidance of English-speaking Amalfi coast travel guides, you can gain a deeper understanding of life in this part of Italy and understand what’s it’s like to be a local here. A visit to the Cathedral, which was built sometime in the 9th and 10th centuries and dedicated to St. Andrew, can give you a glimpse into Amalfi’s glorious past as the Maritime Republic. You may also visit the region’s main town to understand its prosperous history through the Roman times. Your guide can also take you to the wonderful markets for some shopping. You’ll be able to buy goodies you can’t find anywhere else in the world.
If you want to experience the festive atmosphere of Christmas without getting stuck in overcrowded streets, then holidays to the Amalfi coast are great options. During December, locals and visitors are treated to a magical spectacle of fairy lights lighting the quaint village streets. There are Christmas markets everywhere, where you can shop for Italian delicacies, handmade crafts, Christmas linen and ornaments, as well as Italian wines, to name a few.
