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.
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; its interior is adorned in the late Baroque style with a nave and two aisles divided by 20 columns. The façade of the cathedral is Byzantine in style and is adorned with various paintings of saints, including a large fresco of Saint Andrew.

The Amalfi Coast boasts one of the most stunning views in Italy Its name is attributed to two main theories: legend has it that the bones of Amalfi, beloved of Hercules, had been buried in this territory; historians however affirm that it was founded by a group of Roman families that gave it the name “Amelphes”. Located in a perfectly central location within the Coast, Amalfi is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world
