Ciao from Amalfi!

My name is Laura and I've been living on the Amalfi Coast for 16 years. Let me share it with you!

I first visited the Amalfi Coast in 2007 and it was love at first sight. Since 2009, I have been sharing about life and everything I love about the Amalfi Coast on my website Ciao Amalfi. You’ll also find me on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. If you’re planning a trip to the Amalfi Coast, I’ve also written two guidebooks: Moon Amalfi Coast and Moon Southern Italy (with my fab co-author Linda Sarris). You can read more about me at
