This tiny, laid-back fishing village of 2’080 people has much to offer. Cetara has a history going back over 1’000 years and some beautifully preserved historic buildings. The village’s tonno rosso (red tuna) industry is world-renowned and Cetara is though to have the best seafood on the Amalfi coast, especially anchovies.
Cetara remains the most traditional of the main Amalfi Coast towns because it is the least dependent on tourism. Besides offering the chance to experience authentic local food & culture, Cetara also has a few fine beaches, gorgeous churches, and is easier to get to than most other Amalfi Coast towns.
Cetara was our second town we visited at the Amalfi Coast. 1/2 day is more than enough. This town is super cute to have an after lunch break at the beach and enjoy the sun, while reading your favorite book.
