Winter Fishing Boat Amalfi Italy

I wish I could hold on to the peacefulness of February evenings throughout the year. I swear that Amalfi just keeps getting more beautiful all month long. Last week while out taking an evening stroll and soaking up the sunset colors shining on the buildings of Amalfi, I heard the sound of an engine starting up and looked over to see this man on his colorful fishing boat heading out of port. I wondered where he was off to, but I hoped he had a successful catch!

Happy weekend wishes to you!

  • Beautiful I can almost hear our friends father starting his fishing boat up down there, sadly not going to happen as he died some years ago now, but happy memories Laura xx

  • What a beautiful capture! It made me smile to see this photo because just this morning my sister and I were talking on the phone about the beauty of the Amalfi Coast. Breathtaking!

    Hi Laura,
    My husband and I are traveling to Italy this summer. We were trying to extend the time we were there and settled on heading your way … then I found your blog! Thanks for whetting my appetite. We can hardly wait.

    My mother was from Amalfi and so many lovely memories I have of my summers spent there and Maiori and I miss my family out there so much. My uncle and cousins used to go out fishing as they were based around the marina. They used to come back with octopus and squid which my aunts and mother used to cook. Thanks for bringing back the memories Laura.

    Fond memories of my time growing up and spending my summer holidays in Amalfi with my cousins (my mother was from Amalfi before she moved to London, met my father and got married). I remember my uncle and cousins going fishing (their business was/is around the marina. They used to bring back optopus and squid and my aunts and mother used to cook it. Miss them so much but thanks for the reminder of happy days 🙂

  • Hi Laura,

    I’ve been reading some of your wonderful posts on winter in Amalfi Coast. Is it really a good move to spend a time here during winter? I’m thinking of heading there in 20-26 Feb but I’ve been getting quite a few negative feedbacks from travel forumers on this. From your experience, has there been any constant raining few days in a row? If it is, what kind of activities would you suggest? Looking forward for your feedbacks 🙂
