1.  The Star Among Positano Instagram Spots: The Postcard Views!

Instagram is overloaded with these Amalfi Coast Instagram spots and postcard photos, still, you never get tired of them. Positano offers the most magical Amalfi Coast photography spots. Given the many viewpoints and small streets up along the mountainside, there is always a new angle to capture to make your photo unique. I found three favorite Positano Instagram Spots.

To get a magic view of the full valley with the sea in the background take a walk up the streets towards the entrance point of Positano. Climb up the small stairs: you will find a lot of nice spots along the way and some of the best photo spots on the Amalfi Coast. Outside my favorite breakfast place  Casa e Bottega , a perfect spot with a bench (the first photo of this post) and if you climb one level up you will get a breathtaking view of the full valley.

The Cutest Hotel…

Even though you are not staying at Le Sirenuse you must pay this red gem a visit. If not just for a minute or two to step out on the terrace. One of my favorite Positano Instagram spots for sure and a place from where many photos are taken.

5. Breakfast with a View to Your Positano Instagram Spots Collection

You can not leave Positano without at least one breakfast with a view photo in your Amalfi Coast photography collection. Caffé Positano is a good spot for a good Instagram breakfast photo.

However, if you are in for a delicious breakfast  Casa e Bottega is my strongest recommendation. This place might not have the view but the design is spot on and the food amazing. For design lovers, this is one of the best Amalfi Coast Instagram spots!

My 4 Top Amalfi Instagram Spots

Amalfi, is the white shining diamond just around the corner from Positano. Still very different with one main street, much more crowded and touristic than Positano. Amalfi is one of the favorite stops of many of the cruise ships in the Mediterranean and during the daytime it is hard to get any good photos without the crowd. As always, there are some hidden gems also in Amalfi and below are my favorites. Two beyond the crowds and two that you either make sure to be an early or late bird to catch.

1. Amalfi Shine Bright Like a Diamond: A Favorite of Amalfi Coast Instagram Spots!

Amalfi from a distance, from the sea side and the roundabout just by the harbor is a fantastic sight and a favourite of mine among Amalfi Coast Instagram spots. The bright and white houses climbing the hillside is a perfect scenery for some epic photos. You just have to wait for the right moment when the crowd has left Amalfi and the perfect lightening hour is setting in! Another must for your Amalfi Coast photography collection.

2. The Cathedral – A Must Among Amalfi Coast Instagram Spots 

One of the most iconic landmarks in Amalfi is its cathedral, the Amalfi Cathedral. 

Of course one of the most popular Amalfi Coast Instagram spots but if you wake up early or wait until dawn is setting in you can get some truly amazing photos here. The many steps leading up to this majestic cathedral is just waiting for you to take a magic shot to your Amalfi Coast photography collection.

3. A Luxury Escape @ Santa Caterina Hotel

If you are looking for  Amalfi Coast Instagram spots beyond the crowds, then  Santa Caterina hotel is the perfect hang out during day time and place for some Amalfi Coast photography. This traditional hotel has a breathtaking location. Basically hanging out over the steep cliff and at the bottom is a luxury beach club. The setting of both the hotel and the beach club will inspire you to keep your camera busy

4. The Hidden Gems Beyond the Main Street: A Treasure of Amalfi Coast Instagram Spots

At first glance you will find one main street and a square in Amalfi town but if you step into the narrow tunnel streets and the stairs beyond them, you will find some true hidden gems and great Amalfi Coast Instagram spots and places for your Amalfi Coast photography.

We stayed at a hip boutique hotel,  Amalfi Luxury House, located 100 meters up the mountains with the cutest hidden yard decorated in my favorite pastel colors.

Ravello – The Amalfi Coast Instagram Spots with the Most Spectacular Views 

We thought we had seen the best photo spots on the Amalfi Coast and the most magic Amalfi Coast Instagram spots during our road trip and did not have any high expectations regarding our last stop, Ravello. However,  the sights at Ravello completely took our breath away. The Ravello Instagram spots are truly one of a kind, almost better than the Positano Instagram spots!

No words needed…

If staying in Sorrento, you could do a PRIVATE AMALFI COAST TOUR INCLUDING RAVELLO.

1. The Views from Villa Rufolo – The no 1 among the Best Photo Spots on the Amalfi Coast?

Villa Rufolo was built in the 13th century by a wealthy family which is easy to tell. Everything about this place is just stunning, from the courtyards to the design of the villa with the amazing marble floor. However, it is the view that will make your Instagram engagement rate skyrocket:)! A dream for every photographer and nature lover. A place that is even better in reality than in a photo! An absolute favorite of mine among the Amalfi Coast Instagram spots. Probably the best photo spots on the Amalfi Coast.

2. The Colorful & Artsy Streets

When in Ravello, do not stop at Villa Rufolo but continue exploring the streets and alleys behind the square and you will find the most amazing Amalfi Coast Instagram spots with the prettiest squares with painters, colorful houses and yards and a lot of pink houses. Similar to the Positano Instagram spots, yet different and a bit more artsy and romantic!

      Ha ha thank you! It is a stunning place for sure! You need to go back:)!

  5. What a gorgeous summery place – I would love to visit. Your photos are incredible and make me want to jump into the sea!

  6. These pictures are amazingly beautiful! And you are right, this is such an instagrammable place. Adding it to the bucketlist!

    • Linda Reply

      Thank you! Yes, it definitely deserves a spot on the bucket list

  7. I absolutely enjoyed your post, Linda! You’ve marvelously captured the enchanting charm and glamour of the Amalfi coast. I was especially enraptured by the beauty of Ravello. Who could possibly resist? With the Amalfi coast less than 40 miles south of Naples, there couldn’t be a better prelude or conclusion to an already fabulous cruise than extending your vacation a few days exploring this region.

    Naples is a major cruise departure port where you can begin and end your cruisetour vacation. MSC Cruises and Costa Cruises both offer weekly 7 night cruises out of Naples to exciting ports of call throughout the Mediterranean. Marella Cruises (formerly Thomson Cruises) also offers 7 night cruises to exotic ports of call in the Adriatic Sea.

    I’ve already pinned your post to share with clients considering a cruise of the Mediterranean or Adriatic Sea. I’ll also share your post with my Facebook travel group. Thanks for making my job easier! Best wishes and happy travels.
