Visit Amalfi and its coast, the emotions are guaranteed!
Remembered by all for having been one of the Marine Republics, Amalfi is one of the splendid towns of the Amalfi Coast with cliffs overhanging the sea. Amalfi is distinguished by the presence of several inlets that create amazing spectacles of nature, such as the Emerald Grotto or the Fiord of Furore, which owes its name to the loud noise of the waves, that especially on windy days, run shivers down your spine.
One of the most important buildings in Amalfi is the Cathedral, dedicated to Saint Andrew, the apostle. Introduced by a long staircase that leads to bronze doors, it was constructed in the 10th century, combining the most varied architectural styles, Arabic, Norman and gothic. The interior, decisively more baroque, leads to the Cloister of Paradise, where the architecture is exclusively Arab-Norman.
Amalfi is one of the most vibrant towns.
Along with the Patron festival of Saint Andrea that is celebrated on 27 June and 30 November, it offers a series of diverse festivals and celebrations.
The festival of the lemons, that of the sfogliatella and that of the pumpkin and zucchini are just some to name a few.
Of the most important events surely remembered is the historic Four Maritime Republic Regatta that is hosted by Amalfi every four years.Other Excursions »
