Christmas in Amalfi: what to do


Christmas in Amalfi translates into a typical atmosphere, traditions and joy. The characteristic villages that make up the Amalfi Coast at Christmas dress up with lights and events suitable for adults and children.

The summer period is certainly the most popular for visiting the famous coast, but if you are looking for slower and more traditional tourism, Christmas and New Year in Amalfi Coast can really surprise you.

Even the surroundings of the coast do not disappoint for the holidays. Just think of the well-known Luci d’Artista in Salerno, or the more famous via dei Presepi in Naples, San Gregorio Armeno.

Christmas in Amalfi: what to do

See the living crib of Agerola. Seeing a living nativity scene is one of the most typical things you can do during the Christmas holidays in Amalfi Coast and its surroundings. In Agerola, this tradition lives on in the heart of the hamlet of Campora, right next to the Penise river, which makes the setting up even more suggestive.

A journey through the ancient crafts, artfully represented but also through the narrow history of the town that emerges from the old “bassi” (old houses now in disuse) reopened for the occasion.

Lights, toys, and decorations of all kinds make the timeless little racing cars even more unique and sparkling.
