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.

Italia Amalfi2 Passeggiata

  1. 1. The Amalfi Coast boasts one of the most stunning views in Italy 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 Along the Mediterranean Sea from Sorrento to Positano, the Amalfi coast is one of the most popular, yet hard-to-reach seaside destinations in Italy
  2. 2. In 1343 a large part of the lower town was destroyed by a tsunami
  3. 3. The famous eight-pointed Maltese cross is of mediaeval origin. It was first adopted by the ancient maritime republic of Amalfi, which lies on the Costiera Amalfitana, or Amalfi Coast, between Salerno and Naples in southwest Italy. Its emblem features an eight-pointed white cross on a black field. The shape of the Amalfi cross is singular, being a Greek cross pattée with V-shaped arrows inserted into the ends of its arms. And although it is possibly linked to the Normans who brought it to Amalfi, or to the eight Beatitudes, or (as was even later said) represents the eight Langues of the Knights Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem (Italy, Provence, Auvergne, France, Germany-Bavaria-Austria, England-Scotland- Wales-Ireland, Aragon-Catalonia-Navarre and Castille-Leon-Portugal), it may arguably suggest a close connection with the shape of a ship’s compass
  4. 4. Piazza dei Dogi
  5. 5. Piazza dei Dogi
  6. 6. Piazza dei Dogi
  7. 7. Piazza dei Dogi
  8. 8. There are very few historical buildings of note. The explanation is chilling: most of the old city, and its populace, simply slid into the sea during an earthquake in 1343. Piazza dei Dogi
  9. 9. Loquat (nespole) Kumquats (Citrus japonica) Saturn peaches, Prunus persica (also known as donut peaches)
  10. 10. Via Lorenzo d'Amalfi The Amalfi ceramic collection is a large, varied and charming assortment of decorative tiles, house numbers, wall hangings, and ornamental pieces from the Amalfi coast
  11. 11. Via Lorenzo d'Amalfi
  12. 12. Via Lorenzo d'Amalfi
  13. 13. Via Lorenzo d'Amalfi
  14. 14. Piazza Duomo
  15. 15. Piazza Duomo
  16. 16. Piazza Duomo
  17. 17. Piazza Duomo
  18. 18. Fontana Sant'Andrea 1760
  19. 19. Fontana Sant'Andrea 1760
  20. 20. A patron saint of Amalfi is Saint Andrew, the Apostle, whose relics are kept here at Amalfi Cathedral. In 1206, Saint Andrew's relics were brought to Amalfi from Constantinople by the Pietro Capuano following the Sack of Constantinople (an event of the 4th Crusade) after the completion of the town's cathedral.
  21. 21. Piazza Duomo
  22. 22. Amalfi Cathedral (Cattedrale di Sant'Andrea/Duomo di Amalfi)
  23. 23. At the top of a staircase, Saint Andrew's Cathedral (Duomo) overlooks the Piazza Duomo, the heart of Amalfi. The cathedral dates back to the 11th century; the façade of the cathedral is Byzantine in style and is adorned with various paintings and mosaics of saints, including a large one of Saint Andrew
  24. 24. The tympanum's mosaics portray “The triumph of Christ” in a work created by Domenico Morelli and whose original designs are retained in the Town Hall
  25. 25. The front facade was rebuilt in 1891 after the original one collapsed. It is of striped marble and stone with open arches that have lace detailing not commonly found in Italian sacred architecture while the tiled cupola is quite common amongst churches of the area
  26. 26. Sixty-two steps, wide and steep, lead up to the doors. Begun in 1180, and completed over 100 years later, the Romanesque style bell tower is off-center. The structure includes four small towers of Arab architectural type that are adorned with arches and are covered with majolica tiles. During times of war, the bell tower was purposed for defense
  27. 27. The Amalfi coast is famed for its production of Limoncello liqueur and the area is a known cultivator of lemons. The correct name is "sfusato amalfitano", and they are typically long and at least double the size of other lemons, with a thick and wrinkled skin and a sweet and juicy flesh without many pips. It is common to see lemons growing in the terraced gardens along the entire Amalfi coast between February and October
  28. 28. Locanda del Marinaio - Bruschetta con dadolata di pomodori
