Holidays to the little seaside town of Vietri Sul Mare put you at the centre of Amalfi’s ceramics trade, while offering up some of the best coastal views around.
A ceramic village
Vietri Sul Mare is nothing if not colourful, thanks to a centuries-old tradition in ceramics. Stroll through the town centre, and you’ll find that just about everything – from the roofs to the walls to the dome of the 18th-century church of San Giovanni Battista – is tiled.

Considered the gateway to the Amalfi Coast, Vietri sul Mare also has one of the best coastal views in all of Italy. Tucked at the base of Salerno Bay, the town offers panoramic vistas of the Amalfi Coast that are unrivalled. The colourful houses and narrow streets only add to its charm.

Vietri Sul Mare is home to one of the most popular beaches on the Amalfi Coast – partly because it’s one of the few hemmed by sand.
