What To Pack for a Trip to the Amalfi Coast – The Complete Packing Guide

There’s no travel destination quite like the Amalfi Coast, it is the definition of classic Mediterranean elegance and la dolce vita, so you’re going to want to look the part.

From the stunning cliffs of Positano, to the glamorous island of Capri, the Italians are some of the most fashionable people in the world, and the style here is all about sophisticated elegance without looking like you’re trying too hard. Think feminine silhouettes, classic white linens, a pair (or three) of chic cat-eye sun glasses and obviously a gorgeous sun hat to shield you from those hot Italian rays! Here is all the Amalfi Coast outfit inspiration you need that will serve you well, from daytime lounging to nighttime events!

Amalfi Coast packing essentials

  • Sunscreen 
  • A sun hat
  • Swimwear + Cover ups (I have lots of recommendations below!)
  • A pair of comfy tennis shoes for hiking those Italy hills (my absolute favorite of all time are these, they’re so lightweight for travel and SO comfy)
  • Sandals
  • A cute beach bag
  • Jewelry
  • Casual daytime outfits / chic beach outfits
  • Dressier nighttime dinner outfits

If you’re ever trying to decide between casual and glam, go glam! I love something neutral that can be dressed down or up like these dresses and rompers!
