Piazza dei Dogi, 84011 Amalfi Salerno, Italy
NileGuide Expert tip:
During the busy summer months when the Piazza Duomo is crowded, head over to the small Piazza dei Dogi nearby for a quieter spot to enjoy a gelato, outdoor meal or aperitivo.
Located next to the larger Piazza Duomo through arched passageways, the quiet Piazza dei Dogi is an ideal spot for seeing local life in Amalfi. Sit at one of the outdoor cafés or restaurants and watch the locals shop at the supermarket and fruit and vegetable shops or stop and chat with friends in the piazza. The name of the piazza is based on the popular tradition that the doges of the Republic of Amalfi once lived in the palazzos surrounding the piazza. Today it is primarily a residential area of town offering a chance to experience a moment of daily life in Amalfi.
