The lovely Amalfi is an ancient noble town whose glorious past as the first Maritime Republic of Italy has bequeathed to us the Gothic Arsenal and the magnificent Duomo Cathedral built around the 6th century and dedicated to St. Andrew the Apostle, whose remains are kept in the crypt. Its present facade, shining with mosaics, is in the Oriental style, its bronze doors were the first in Italy, and it boasts the Paradise cloister (13th c.). Amalfi had its own coin (the Tarì), was the home of Flavio Gioia, the inventor of the compass, and gave navigators the famous maritime law known as “Tabula de Amalpha”.


Close to Amalfi, along the coast which is the most popular destination in Campania with its unique landscapes and mild weather all year round, “must sees” include the Emerald Grotto, the Romanesque cathedral in Ravello, Villa Cimbrone (with its famous belvedere), and Villa Rufolo. Amalfi is an excursion centre for Valle dei Mulini (where some of the oldest paper mills in Europe are still working), Conca dei Marini, Positano, Sorrento, Minori, Maiori, Salerno, Paestum, Pompei, Ercolano, Vesuvio, Napoli, Campi Flegrei, Capri, Ischia, Pogerola, Pastena, Tovere, Furore and Agerola.
