Amandola is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Fermo in the Italian region Marche, located about 70 kilometres (43 mi) south of Ancona, about 25 kilometres (16 mi) northwest of Ascoli Piceno and about 35 kilometres (22 mi) west of Fermo. The city was founded in 1248 by the union of the castles of Agello Leone and Marrubbione, which formed a free municipality.

Amandola is one of the 18 Italian municipalities located within the Monti Sibillini National Park.

Amandola was damaged by the earthquake in Central Italy (near Amatrice) on 24 August 2016.
