If you’re lucky enough to have a day off on a work trip, or a spare day at the end of your holiday, then heading to the Amalfi Coast is something certainly worth considering. With pristine beaches, stunning scenery, and a traditional way of life that’s been preserved for centuries, you’ll have more than enough options to enjoy one of the best days of your life.
If you don’t quite have to time to spend an entire weekend on the Amalfi Coast there’s still plenty to see and do in just one day. The secret to enjoying it is having a plan in mind before you arrive. Here’s a few suggestions that you might want to take a look at.
Get up early and head to Cetara
Cetara is the hidden gem of the Amalfi Coast, and it’s an area that’s not often visited by the masses of tourists you’ll find in Positano and Sorrento. It’s very much a throwback to the days of the old Italy, and it’s still a fishing village at heart.
Beating the sun and heading over to watch the fishermen head out in the morning is a great way to start your day. It also makes for a great chance to capture some photos that you’ll love to show off to your friends and family back home.

Explore the Centro Storico in Salerno
If you don’t have that long to spend on the Amalfi Coast, then you’re going to need to ensure you make the time to get over to Salerno. It’s one of the biggest cities in the region, and it provides a great introduction to the way the locals shop and enjoy themselves.
Head on over to the Centro Storico and you’ll be right in the heart of the action. Just make sure you take plenty of spending money so that you can enjoy the great assortment of street food, and treat yourself in a few of the boutiques that line each side of the road.
Enjoy a Limoncello tasting tour
If you can spare a couple of hours to enjoy the drink that the region is known for then you should certainly do it. Heading to a bar and trying a few different varieties is great, but there’s no substitute for booking yourself on an organised tasting tour. That way when you get home you’ll be something of a connoisseur!
Explore the Blue Cave Grotto by boat
The island of Capri is a great place to head to if you want to make the most of your day.
The Blue Cave Grotto is a stunning network of underwater caves that are just waiting to be explored. You can catch a ferry over to Capri from the town of Positano, and once you land there will be plenty of locals available to take you on a boat trip. Ideal if you want to do something that you can’t do anywhere but the Amalfi Coast
Relax on the Marina Grande in the evening
Once you get to the evening, there’s nothing better than putting your feet up and relaxing is there? The Vietri sul Mare beach is popular with families as it’s nice and sandy, but if you want plenty of entertainment just a stones throw from the beach then you might also consider the Marina Grande. It’s the biggest and busiest beach in the Amalfi Coast, and it’s a great place to unwind at the end of a day you’ll never forget.
