Amalfi, land of navigators and explorers, and the first Italian Maritime Republic. In the deep blue of the sky and sea, Amalfi when seen from the harbor looks like it’s been held inside a hand. Up high, the mountains almost feel designed to be a backdrop, dotted with houses.
Down below a web of picturesque alleyways and stairways lead to the grand piazza that is dominated by the Duomo (cathedral) with its staircase, polychrome facade, and golden mosaics.
A thoroughly unique scene, where historic memories intertwine with unparalleled natural beauty to leave a lasting impression.
Famous for its maritime history and expert navigators (this is where the compass was perfected), the town of Amalfi presents an original Arab-Norman architecture, which lends it a personality all of its own.
