Amalfi Coast for Christmas

Amalfi Coast for Christmas, the best holiday ever, your Christmas in Italy

Amalfi Coast for Christmas? If you are doubtful, just trust us: read below and you will start dreaming about your Christmas vacation in Italy.

First of all, let's answer one of the “frequently asked questions” we can hear very often during this period:

Is December a good time to visit Amalfi Coast?

It depends from the climatic conditions, which we can summarize as follows:

Average High Temperature: 15 ° C / 59 ° F

Average Low Temperature: 10 ° C / 50 ° F

Average Sea Temperature: 17 ° C / 62 ° F

Chance of Rain: 30%

Not bad, isn’t it?


If you are not looking for the traditional Christmas market or the snow, the Amalfi Coast will amaze you with its special effects: here the Christmas atmosphere makes everything even more magical.

Watching the cities in the evening, from sunset onwards, lighting up with many small fairy lights is one of the most exciting you’ve ever seen.


As well as strolling around the small towns. Each shop decorates its windows and a presepeappears on each window. Do you know what a presepe is? In English it is called "Nativity scene", but in Italy, it is something more than just a Christmas ritual. Families and shops are used to do the presepe on the 8th of December (or earlier), many miniature models of ancient towns, rolling hills, and people are placed in pageant form with strong attention to the light design. The result is that every big or small city becomes part of the real enchantment.

Something more and extraordinary for you: an underwater nativity scene is created every year inside the Emerald Grotto in Conca Martini!

But furthermore, in every city, you will smell the scent of the typical Italian Christmas sweets in the streets, such as "zeppole" and "struffoli" (but if you are looking for a panettone, you will find that too, don't worry!). It is worth popping into a pastry shop and tasting them: if you are in Minori you must definitely stop at Sal de Riso Pastry Shop!

Numerous events are organized in each city, especially on weekends, including the public “tombola”, the bingo games which takes place in the main square of the village: you have absolutely to join one!

For New Year's Eve many people celebrate at the Spiaggia Grande in Positano, which becomes a sort of magnificent open-air disco, but if you prefer to celebrate the new year in a more luxurious and romantic way, what would you think about watching the fireworks from the sea, directly on one of our boats?

What Clients Say

  • Excellent Customer Service!

    We had booked a full day private boat tour for our 10th wedding anniversary; but due to COVID-19 had to cancel our overseas trip to Italy. From the start the customer service and responsiveness Aldo provided was amazing. Although we haven't yet had a chance to go on the tour - I would already 100% recommend this company to my family and friends purely based on the customer service we have received - from booking to the flexibility they offered when we had to cancel/postpone our trip. This has just furthered solidified we made the right choice in booking with Restart Boat for a once in a lifetime experience touring around Capri - we can't wait to reschedule our trip!

  • So much fun!

    We were picked up from our hotel in Sorrento and driven down to Marina Grande where our private boat arrived. Had a great time onboard, towels and prosecco provided and plenty of room to relax and sunbathe. Our skipper recommend a great place for lunch on Capri which we both enjoyed. Great weather, fantastic way to see the Sorrento coast and Capri. Thank you!
