Amalfi

Amalfi is open at tourists eyes like a big “presepe” all decorated by plants, orange and lemon trees The most representative monument is the Cathedral which was built in the IX century when the maritime republic became a great commercial potency.

One only has to observe the Cathedral to notice the multiple influences which have contributed in enriching the culture of Amalfi. Next to the Cathedral you can find the Cloister of Paradise, in arabic style with entwined arches on double columns. Precious is the Crypt which holds the remains of Saint Andrew Apostle.

Not to be missed is the museum of the hand-made Amalfi paper, constituted by an old paper mill and a library with around 3.000 books on the paper history.
