The holiday season is an exciting time of year to be in Amalfi, and this year the town has an exciting series of events planned for Christmas, New Year’s and Epiphany. It’s fun to just walk through the town in the evening and enjoy the pretty Christmas lights in Piazza Duomo, the large Christmas tree in Piazza Flavio Gioia and the lights along the streets through town.
