Amalfi is a true gem of the Italian coastline. The beautiful and dramatic scenery of this region, on the stretch of coastline between Amalfi and nearby Positano, is known as the Amalfi Drive and considered to be the most romantic drive in Italy. The town also has a rich maritime heritage, as the place where the ship’s compass was first invented, and it was home to the largest naval fleet in the Mediterranean during the 11th and 12th centuries. Take the opportunity to learn more about the history of Amalfi at The Arsenale, a medieval shipyard.
Amalfi’s the perfect destination to either unwind amongst the stunning sea views, or for those more inclined to explore historic landmarks. The Amalfi Cathedral, for example, offers grand architecture with both Arabic and Sicilian influences. Just remember to dress conservatively for a visit. If you’re looking for authentic Mediterranean cuisine, Amalfi has some wonderful restaurants. If you want to know how good pasta and tomato sauce should truly taste, Amalfi is the place to try it. Simple, fresh ingredients are used to create delicious, complex dishes that live long in the memory.
The Euro is the official currency of Amalfi. Amalfi is 2 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +2).
