10 places to photograph on the Amalfi Coast

If you are a photography enthusiast and are looking for places to photograph on the Amalfi Coast, you have come to the right place!

It is not news that the Amalfi Coast is among the most beautiful and envied places in the world.

Just stop on Instagram and activate the search by places or by hashtag: using the words “Costiera Amalfitana” or “Amalfi Coast”, you are struck by the quantity of photos, videos and reels capturing glimpses, panoramas and sunsets of our places.

Even though we ourselves have lived here practically forever, we are not indifferent to the beauty of some of the panoramas that suddenly open up before us: all it takes is a sunset with particularly intense colours, a nuance in the sky or some new perspective and we are immediately ready, phone in hand, to snap, record, share.

There is no denying that Instagram has some influence on travellers’ choices, and it is probably the beauty of the Coast – its ‘Instagrammability’, to use a social term – that contributes to travellers’ desire to set out to discover these places.

According to a study by Instagrammable Italy, during the summer of 2021, Campania was the top region in Italy, with 10.8% of posts.

And, coincidentally, those that recorded the greatest interactivity were those geolocated in Naples, Capri, Minori, Positano and Sorrento.

The study analysed 400 thousand posts between July and August 2021 and took into consideration hashtags related to the travel experience.

Needless to say, the news doesn’t surprise us at all, because, in our opinion, the hashtag #summervibes goes too well with the beauty of our deep blue, light-filled landscapes.

But, speaking of travel photos, this article will be dedicated to the 10 most Instagrammable places on the Amalfi Coast.

If you are one of those travellers who only set off with your digital camera, or if you are one of those with your smartphone always at hand, read this article and take note: we will guide you to discover the posts that will give you the most beautiful and special shots of your trip to the Amalfi Coast.

A must of places to photograph on the Amalfi Coast: Villa Cimbrone’s Infinity Terrace in Ravello

“A place devoted to ecstasy”.

So wrote the great Pasolini, after visiting Villa Cimbrone.

Impossible not to put it at the top of the list!

The belvedere of Villa Cimbrone is most famous as the ‘Terrace of Infinity’ because looking out from this balcony, 365 metres above the sea, offers a unique emotion, with its breathtaking view over the sea of the Amalfi Coast, offering the possibility of embracing sea and sky with your gaze.

One feels almost suspended and has the sensation of flying: an unforgettable experience, which deserves to be immortalised in a romantic shot, even better if at sunset.

Fairy-tale suggestions at the Fiordo di Furore

Actually, more than a fjord, it is a valley carved out over the millennia by the Schiato river.

The Fiordo can be admired from the top of the road, but to get some really scenic shots, we suggest you take one of the two paths that start from the road.

On one side, in fact, you will find the steps that flank the rock and lead to the small beach of Furore.

On the other side, however, on the opposite side of the bridge, you find the view of the old houses on the other side of the valley.

A third possibility for taking some impressive photographs is to go to the beach and shoot from below.

A scenic walk: the Path of the Fornillo Beach – Positano

Fornillo beach in Positano can be reached by following the path that connects it to Positano’s main beach.

It is a truly pleasant walk that, amidst the green vegetation and the sea just below, offers glimpses of rare beauty!

Excursion with breathtaking photos: The Path of the Gods

Of course, this is a real hike, but we assure you that it is really worth it.

The Path of the Gods offers a total immersion in the Mediterranean vegetation.

Here, the effort is rewarded with breathtaking views: your gaze is lost in the green vegetation and the infinite shades of blue of the sea and sky.

Hidden places: the Church of Santa Maria del Bando and Grotta di Masaniello in Atrani

Get your comfortable shoes ready: you have to walk a good 750 steps to reach these two jewels of the Amalfi Coast.

Even in this case, however, the effort is well rewarded by the possibility of dominating the whole of the enchanting village of Atrani with your gaze.

Insider’s tip: leave at first light to enjoy and photograph an unforgettable experience!

Popular on Instagram: the little blue house in Vietri sul Mare

From Vietri, descending from the town towards the Marina hamlet, turning left before the bridge leading to the seafront, you will find a little blue house that is a kaleidoscope of colours.

This little place is just waiting for your creativity: take advantage of it for some dynamic and fun shots!

Majolica tiles with a sea view: the Villa Comunale of Vietri sul Mare

Vietri is famous for its splendid ceramics.

The Villa Comunale in Vietri sul Mare is just such an explosion of colourful majolica tiles that harmonise wonderfully with the surrounding landscape.

A place that is perhaps less popular on social media, but we assure you that it can be very satisfying, especially for a nice romantic photo!

Emotions by boat: Cetara seen from the sea

One of the most successful shots on our Instagram profile @costaamalfitanaofficial was of Cetara seen from the sea.

Taken from the right distance and with the right light conditions, the village of Cetara seen from the sea, with its majolica dome standing out among the small houses attached to each other and the beach with its blue and white umbrellas, can be really satisfying.

An iconic photo: the Belvedere of Villa Rufolo in Ravello

Upon entering Villa Rufolo, we are sure two things will remain in your heart: the Klingsor garden, which left composer Richard Wagner enraptured, and the iconic Belvedere at Villa Rufolo.

The panorama from the Belvedere, with the famous domes of the Annunziata Church and the pine tree, have become the symbol of Ravello and the Amalfi Coast in the world, especially on Instagram, where hundreds of photos are shared every day depicting the beautiful view that allows one to embrace the entire Coast and the gardens below, which are the location of the famous Ravello Festival.

Iconic sunset photo: Positano seen from the sea

We are not just talking about one of the places to photograph on the Amalfi Coast, but one of the most beautiful places in the world.

An elegant and glamorous destination, reached every year by thousands of tourists from all over the world, Positano is striking for its colours, its flights of steps and narrow, steep streets, teeming with cafés and small shops, but above all for its colourful little houses, leaning against each other, that give the village this characteristic vertical conformation.

Positano extends in height and we can assure you that photographing it from the sea provides beautiful shots, especially at sunset time.
