Yesterday I was in Amalfi and I took a few photos of the damage to the port from the storm at the end of last week. According to locals, there have been more strong storms and rough seas this winter than there has been for a long time. The work that was underway repairing earlier damage was interrupted last week. But work started again as soon as the sun came out. Easter week marks the beginning of high seasons here in Amalfi, so I know the city is eager to get things put back together as soon as possible!
The storm last week increased the size of the damaged section of the port. I hope there is enough of a break in bad weather that they can get the work completed this time. Like gathering puzzle pieces after you drop the box on the floor, is a slow process putting the stones back in place. But, in the meantime, it provides some entertainment for the local men watching over from above.

Ciao Laura, I guess you guy’s had a rougher then normal seas this year. But, yes in deed the day is coming!!
hi! hope everything is well in the amalfi coast! found your site as i was searching for amalfi coast. we were in positano mar 3-6 and it was my bday on the 5th and it was raining =( it’s such a pretty place despite the rain though. hope we could have gone to amalfi and ravello but we didn’t want to go through the hassle of walking through the landslide and waiting for the bus. wish we could go again another time. you’re lucky to live there, it’s paradise.
Ciao Ana! Thank you so much for stopping by and saying ciao! All is going well here on the Amalfi Coast. We are having some much needed sunny weather, but the wind is so cold. Still… I am happy with the sun after all the rain. How lovely to celebrate your birthday in Positano! I am sorry it was raining. Stupid weather! Yes, the frana has caused such chaos with access between Positano and the rest of the Coast. Right now they are attempting to fix the problem, and at the moment you can’t even walk through the area in Praiano were the road is closed. It is completely blocked off! I think it is beautiful here even in the rainy weather, too. I am happy you had a good time! Always love to hear from people who also find the beauty of this place inspiring. Next time you visit, Amalfi and Ravello are waiting for you!
Ciao Chuck! The sea has been so rough this year. One day I got soaked walking on the road from the Hotel Luna into Amalfi when a big wave crashed below (like in the photo I posted of the huge wave in Amalfi). Water hazard! 🙂
Ciao Laura, don’t know much about the Brit TV presenter except her name is Julia Bradbury and she loves Amalfi. Smart woman. 🙂
Thanks Lisa! Yes, definitely a smart woman! 🙂
