Yesterday morning we woke up to find a dusting of snow on the tops of the Lattari Mountains high above the Amalfi Coast. It was a beautiful sight in the morning sunshine. It doesn’t snow often down at lower altitudes, but I do love the wintery setting of seeing it on the mountaintops. The snow doesn’t stick around long, and most was already gone by this morning. It’s just one of those lovely little moments of nature to enjoy!
While out and about, I snapped a few photos of the snow on the mountains near Ravello (above) and Scala (below). There was quite a bit more in the mountains just above Scala, and it wouldn’t have taken very many degrees colder to have snow right in town.
With autumn colors still lingering, I must say it was nice to have a touch of winter in these days leading up to Christmas. The mountains above Scala were such a beautiful sight, and it finally started to feel like winter around here!
From Ravello I could spot the Convento di San Nicola in the mountains high above Minori. It looks like the trees had a light dusting of snow, but the mountain peaks behind were white.
From the Piazza Duomo in Amalfi you could also see a nice view of the snow dusted mountains high in the valley above town. Winter has finally arrived on the Amalfi Coast!
But the snow melts away just as quickly as it arrives, so it doesn’t look as though there will be a white Christmas on the Amalfi Coast. Will you have snow for the holidays this year?

I love the Amalfi Coast and enjoy your site. Living in this beautiful place seems a dream come true, right? You are so lucky … besides Italian singers are the best also (I love Eros Ramazzotti songs). Ciao Bella!
Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comment, Deni!
Hi Laura, we’re contemplating a trip to Italy in December, and the Amalfi Coast seems like a beautiful place to visit! How wet is it during December? (like 28th thru 7th Jan?)
The pictures posted here look stunning!!
Hi PT, Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. It’s quite impossible to say what the weather will be like, but in general it can be rainy during the Christmas period. But if you’re coming during the winter, the holiday period is the best (and those travel dates are still very much holiday time in Italy) because there are events planned and New Year’s Eve celebrations. The New Year’s fireworks in Amalfi are spectacular! Happy travel planning, Laura
