The Amalfi Coast offers attractions and sights you can visit even when the weather isn't cooperating, as even holidays to places known for sunny weather can have their rainy days. There are museums and art galleries, churches and crypts with precious items on display, and artisan factories and workshops where you can learn how different products are made.

    Armed with the right information, days away from the beach become the perfect chance to make the most of local landmarks you'd otherwise risk missing out on. Here are 10 things to do in bad weather on the Amalfi Coast where you can turn your rainy day into an adventure.


    Museum of the Compass and the Duchy of Amalfi

    Centuries of history in the old arsenal

    • Tarih

    At the Museum of the Compass and the Duchy of Amalfi (Museo della Bussola e del Ducato Marinaro), you can retrace centuries of fascinating history and discoveries and admire works, records, relics and the tarì, the old local currency. The Duchy of Amalfi, a maritime republic, made its fortune through sailing, and compasses were essential for the seafarers who crossed the Mediterranean to trade, explore and battle.

    The Amalfitani were the first in Europe to use this tool, possibly imported from China. The town's seafront promenade features a monument to Flavio Gioia, who invented or perfected the magnetic orientation system. Even the museum site itself is worthy of special mention, with its one-of-a-kind 11th-century arsenal.

Here, masterpieces are displayed, created by master ceramicists from the 19th century up to today. If the rain doesn't let up, it's only a stone's throw from the gallery to the restaurant, so you can get quickly from one to the other.
