What do I need to know before moving to Amalfi?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Amalfi, they said...

"Before moving to Amalfi, expats should know that the official language is Italian, and while English is spoken in tourist areas, it is beneficial to learn some basic Italian phrases. The cost of living can be high, especially in tourist areas, so it's important to budget accordingly. The local currency is the Euro, and credit cards are widely accepted, but it's always useful to have some cash on hand. The healthcare system in Italy is of a high standard, but it's recommended to have comprehensive health insurance. The Amalfi Coast is known for its narrow, winding roads, so if you plan on driving, be prepared for challenging conditions. Public transportation is reliable, with regular bus and ferry services connecting the towns along the coast. The climate is Mediterranean, with hot summers and mild winters, and the region is prone to heavy rainfall in autumn and winter. The cuisine is a highlight, with fresh seafood, locally grown produce, and the famous limoncello liqueur. It's also important to note that many buildings in Amalfi are built on steep hillsides, so be prepared for lots of stairs and steep paths. Finally, be aware that the town can get very crowded in the peak tourist season, which runs from April to October," said a member in Amalfi, Italy.
