Amalfi Coast Map With List of Towns You Should Visit

Welcome to the Amalfi Coast, a stunning stretch of coastline along the southern edge of Italy's Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region. Visitors flock here in droves from around the world, and for good reason. The “Costiera Amalfitana” is an enchanting area, known for its dramatic cliffs, colourful villages, and azure seas. Our Amalfi Coast map with towns provides an illustrated guide to help you visualise the layout of this stunning part of the world.

Why I Created This Amalfi Coast Map With Towns

I always find the standard Google maps a bit too busy and full of unnecessary details. A simple graphical map often helps me plan out my trip and get a “feel” for the lay of the land before digging into more specific details.

In this Amalfi Coast map, I’ve also marked out the top Amalfi Coast towns to visit as well as some lesser-known gems I’m sure you’ll enjoy!

Towns to Visit on The Amalfi Coast

We’ll move across the map from left to right, starting with Capri and ending with Vietri sul Mare.


Capri, though technically an island in the Bay of Naples, is often associated with the Amalfi Coast due to its proximity and popularity among tourists. Capri is home to a number of dramatic landscapes, including the iconic Blue Grotto. The island’s main town, also called Capri, features charming piazzas and historic sites, while the smaller town of Anacapri offers breathtaking views and more tranquil surroundings. Read our guide to Capri for more information.

Sorrento is a popular tourist hub and the gateway to the Amalfi Coast. It’s located on the side of the peninsula opposite to all the other Amalfi Coast towns. It’s a charming town famous for its stunning views of the Bay of Naples, vibrant piazzas, and lively shopping streets. Sorrento is also known for its production of Limoncello, a delicious lemon liqueur that you definitely want to try when visiting the area.


Positano is arguably the most iconic town on the Amalfi Coast. With its steep cliffs, colourful buildings, and narrow winding streets, Positano offers picturesque views at every turn. Visitors can enjoy the beautiful beaches, chic boutiques, and excellent seafood restaurants. Take note that this is one of the busiest Amalfi Coast towns and can get quite crowded in the summer months.

Praiano is the first of the “lesser-visited” towns on this list. Located along the coast between Positano and Amalfi, Praiano is a quaint town perfect for those seeking a quieter retreat with stunning sea views. Praiano offers charming churches, beautiful beaches, and scenic walking trails.

Discover Praiano.


Furore is known for its dramatic fjord, the Fiordo di Furore, which cuts through steep cliffs creating a spectacular natural harbour. The town itself is small and less touristy, making it ideal for those looking to escape the crowds and enjoy natural beauty. The beach here is one of the most spectacular along the entire coast.

The town of Amalfi is the heart of the Amalfi Coast. Once one of the four powerful Maritime Republics, Amalfi is now one of the most popular towns on the coast. The town's highlight is the stunning Amalfi Cathedral (Duomo di Amalfi), with its striking Arab-Norman architecture. Stroll through the Piazza del Duomo, explore the Museum of Handmade Paper, or spend some time on the lovely beaches which are some of the coast’s best.

Just a short walk up the coastal road from Amalfi, Atrani is the smallest town on the Amalfi Coast by surface area. Despite its size, it offers a charming and authentic Italian experience. Atrani's narrow alleys, arches, and squares are perfect for leisurely explorations. The Church of Santa Maria Maddalena, perched above the town, offers breathtaking views over the coast.

Perched high above the sea, Ravello is known for its stunning views, historic villas, and lush gardens. The town is home to the famous Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, both offering breathtaking vistas and beautiful gardens. Ravello also hosts an annual music festival, attracting artists from around the world. Ravello is easily reachable by bus from Amalfi and other nearby towns, making for an excellent day trip.

Maiori boasts one of the longest beaches on the Amalfi Coast, making it a great stop for sunbathers and swimmers. The town offers a mix of historic sites and modern amenities like seaside restaurants and cafes.


Cetara is a traditional fishing village known for its anchovy production. The town’s picturesque harbour, historic churches, and excellent seafood restaurants make it a delightful stop on the Amalfi Coast. Cetara is particularly famous for its colatura di alici, a flavorful anchovy sauce.

Vietri sul Mare

Vietri sul Mare is the first town on the Amalfi Coast coming from Salerno. Known for its vibrant ceramic industry, you can explore numerous shops and workshops offering beautifully crafted pottery. The town’s historic centre and lovely beaches add to its charm.

If you base yourself in the city of Salerno, Vietri sul Mare can be reached in a matter of minutes by bus. In fact, just about all of the towns I’ve mentioned here can be reached by bus from Salerno, while Amalfi, Positano and Capri can be reached by ferry. To reach Minori and Maiori by ferry, you can change boats in Amalfi.

A Word on Salerno

Salerno is the largest city near the Amalfi Coast, serving as a major transport hub for the area. Because of the city’s location on the high-speed rail network, it’s easily reachable by train from many Italian cities including Naples and Rome.

It’s home to a population of around 130,000, so it’s not nearly as big as Naples, but it certainly makes for a lively and vibrant Southern Italian experience. You can find a list of things to see and do in the city in our guide to Salerno. And as I mentioned earlier, it's a good place to base yourself due to the transport links and more affordable accommodation options.

South of Salerno lies the largely untouched Cilento province, still undiscovered by international tourists, but with a great variety of both natural and cultural attractions.

Planning Your Trip to The Amalfi Coast

When planning your trip, consider using our Amalfi Coast map to identify key towns you’d like to visit. Each town offers something unique, from historical landmarks and cultural sites to beautiful beaches and local cuisine. 

I wouldn’t try to visit them all unless you’re staying for longer than a week, but do try to see some of the lesser-known gems. And don’t hesitate to go off the beaten track at times. There are some wonderful coastal walks between many of the towns, where oftentimes it’s just you, the sea and a delightful lemony breeze!
