Thank you!
Amalfi lies at the mouth of a deep ravine, at the foot of Monte Cerreto (1,315 metres), surrounded by dramatic cliffs and coastal scenery. The town of Amalfi was the capital of the maritime republic known as the Duchy of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200.
Amalfi is the main town of the coast on which it is located, named Costiera Amalfitana (Amalfi Coast), and is today an important tourist destination together with other towns on the same coast, such as Positano, Ravello and others. Amalfi is included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

  • @Oresta Cojocaru Mulțumesc Oresta. Da, este minunat și mi-am permis în cea de-a treia zi când am venit la Amalfi (primele două au fost dedicate în mare parte muzeului!) să mă plimb doar pentru a admira marea (de vis!). Orașul este foarte mic. Cea mai mare parte a construcțiilor sale de pe vremea când avea 80.000 de locuitori (acum sunt cca 5.500) au fost înghițite de un tsunami, după cutremurul din 1343)

  • Pitoresc din cale-afara ! E incredibil si inimaginabil cum au brodat pe stanci salbe de constructii. Iar combinatia munte - apa - cer cu nori, e plina de farmec. Iar Sanda care de obicei admira opere de arta, de data asta s-a bucurat de frumusetea locului. Aici te fura peisajul !
