These is a very crowded place. Some places were actually jam packed. Lots of shops and restaurants around. The place is interesting and there are many small and narrow side streets worth exploring.

Beautiful in the early evening when the bells are chiming! Sit in the square and admire with an Aperol Spritz and some olives!

This is the place where you can shop eat and drink, lots of things to do. The fountain is beautiful. Just walking distance from where the bus would drop you.

After visiting few places on the coast we went to Amalfi and what a great experience that was! I loved everything about it. The atmosphere,the vibe,the looks of it,small shops and bistros. Every inch is historical and although similar to other places on this coast ,unique. Loved it ,loved it,loved it. Wish to come come back some day.

We stumbled upon the Ruga Nova on the walk up the main street in Almalfi, on our way to the paper museum. Worth a visit...unique structure and good views from the top of the stairs.

lovely little streets , alleys and passageways. You can walk up and down and around...behind every corner there are shops and places to eat. Really cute. Parked at the port - one of the few places where the parking machine gives change and takes euro notes....

We loved exploring the many passageways along this street. They are so skinny, that the locals use donkeys to transport heavy items. We ran across donkeys that were being used to load debris from a construction site. We had great fun going up and down the steps to see what we could find next.

It could hardly be called a street - actually, I had trouble in finding it just because I could not imagine that a narrow passage through a stone arcade was a street. It is right in the center and goes parallel to the main street. There are small shops there, and it is quite a feeling to walk.
